This was our very first trip, and we had no complaints at all. Embarkation and Debarkation went very smooth. We arrived at the port around 1115am, and were able to get through in about 15-20 minutes. Not sure if that's normal, but that ... Read more

We had a great time on this ship and had lots of fun. I didn't like the idea of making reservations for all of our meals and shows. The cruise director was great and all of the shows were great. The best restrauant to eat at was the Grand. ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a short honeymoon. The Theodora Suite was perfect. It is at the top back of the boat. It has two outdoor decks and a nice soaking tub. The crew was totally committed to spoiling us and making our time on board ... Read more

This was our first cruise. Embarkation was very good, everything was explained, I was very nervous, but was made to feel at ease. Our dinner table was with others, asked to have table for two, which was easy to change. Cabin was ... Read more

Overall we enjoyed the cruise, but there could be some improvements that I think would make it better. My wife and I hadn't cruised in 12 years so our comparison is before the auto tipping. Our boarding was a 2.5 hr ordeal due to extensive ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we have been looking for these particular port of calls. Royal Caribbean provided the port of calls we were looking for. Even though the ship (Empress of the Seas) is one of the smallest in the Royal ... Read more

Anthem of the Seas is a wonderful ship with plenty of activities to meet all needs. The cabins are spacious and clean. Dining was a little trouble, as we had to make reservations months before boarding ship. Food left a lot to be ... Read more

Got a good price on a last minute impulse purchase. Overall, smaller/older ship does not have to mean less enjoyment, but with the Empress of the Seas, that was the case. Although the cast production and headliner shows were very good, ... Read more

We went on this cruise for our anniversary. I did not see an option to put the reason for the cruise and no one ever asked. Overall we enjoyed ourselves, however it would have been much better if the staff at the port in Miami was better ... Read more

What attracted me to this cruise was the value and the itinerary. I was on this ship about 20 years ago when it was called the Nordic Empress and now since the ship was totally refurbished it's just as wonderful as before, and better! Our ... Read more
