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

Many previous reviews have been extremely negative and in some cases completely unfair, however each passenger has a different experience or point of view. Thankfully I have come off the ship having had a fantastic weeks cruise in Norway. ... Read more

I chose Royal Caribbean based on rave reviews from family and friends. But they cruised in Europe and not on Voyager of the seas. My husband and I went with a couple of friends on Voyager just to test out a short cruise from Hong Kong to ... Read more
