I have sailed on many cruise lines, including Rccl, and believed that since this ship was older and smaller, the experience would below what I would come to expect from Rccl. THAT WAS FAR FROM THE TRUTH. Empress surpassed my expectations, ... Read more

Staff were highlight of the ship. Overall decor and appearance of ship is dated as expected for the age. Food was good although some nights could be hit/miss. Tables and furniture could get a bit sticky probably from the moisture in the ... Read more

We have been on numerous RCCL vessels and have maintained our trips to the mid-size ships. We had always heard rumors that the larger ships were too impersonal. Our vacation on Oasis found this to be entirely false. The crew was very ... Read more

We originally chose this cruise to see the Northern Lights & the Faroe Islands. The Northern lights were a bust (not the ship's fault) but the Faroe Islands were mysteriously cancelled by Royal with no explanation. The dining on the ... Read more

Embarkation was exactly like always....a winding line of smiling (or complaining) travelers, all with happy anticipation. Not too long and you are on board heading for food in one direction or the other. Ship is beautiful and recently ... Read more

Although the ship has been refurbished handsomely, I found my cruise experience to be below average. I have always felt pampered on the cruises I have sailed on before this one. The small amenities that I have been accustomed to on ... Read more
