The Empress of the Seas is a great, smaller cruise ship. If you are researching reviews (as I did), I guess you can take other people's negative reviews with a grain of salt. I am glad I looked past the bad reviews to give the Empress a ... Read more

Avoid this ship. This ship is waiting for approval to cruise to Cuba. It is not comfortable for more than a 1-night stay on board. The renovations, which crew members tell us are around $4 to $5 million, appear to be cosmetic only. Pool is ... Read more

We cruise 3-5 times every year: this was a perfect long weekend for us to get away from home and to allow my wife to be served meals rather than prepare them. We had no other activities scheduled, so Nassau was a great weekend sojourn. ... Read more

The crew was great!! Always smiling and willing to help! The food in the windjammer buffet was terrible. I was so disappointed! The main dining room wasn't good either, but the cookies were good. There were mostly Spanish channels and the ... Read more

Embarkation was really fast, we got to the port of Baltimore around 2:00 pm and was on the ship by 2:15 pm. The Grandeur of the Seas is a great ship. I like the smaller size, nicer balcony room and overall service. Our cabin was a ... Read more

Avoid this ship at all cost, its a very small and old ship, only 2 places to get food both once stops seating at 9 and the other closes at 9:30. So if you get hungry room service is your only option and after midnight they charge a fee, ... Read more

We always sale Royal Caribbean. You cannot beat the level of service that you receive. We have learned that it is not about the port of calls that you go to. It's truly about the ship and the staff that make a cruise worth spending the ... Read more

We really enjoyed being on the Allure of the Seas. It's a beautiful ship with lots of amenities. We loved our Superior Room with Balcony on the ninth floor. The ports of call were all wonderful and our favourite was St. Thomas. We ... Read more

This was my husband and my 3rd cruise. We've previously been on the Oasis and the Freedom. We by far prefer the Freedom class ships. The Liberty was amazing - probably our most favorite ship so far. Really the only negative we had was ... Read more

My spouse and I chose this cruise to visit Seattle, Alaska and Canada for the first time. Embarkation was fine; transportation at Pier 91 is easy and accessible. I believe we went at a busy time so it probably took about 30 mins to an ... Read more

I went on this cruise as part of a group that owns franchises in Florida. While I never complain about a cruise because I love them so much, the Explorer of the Seas had some flaws. We had a balcony stateroom which was great. Inyoman our ... Read more

We wanted to check out the newly returned ship. We like sailing the smaller/more intimate/classic styled ships and this seemed to fit the bill. The prices were also VERY good. (We booked a Junior Suite for 4 nights for about $550 ... Read more

We chose the Anthem because we like to drive to the port. The dining reservation system has not improved since we were on in Jan. Every night we had to reconfirm arrangements made that very day. Cannot say enough about the crew and the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was leaving close to home. This was our 1st cruise and it was a great deal for a 10 day cruise. The ports were places we wanted to visit so it was a win win. We did do our homework prior to boarding - ... Read more
