Empress of the Seas is a Royal Caribbean cruise ship that, after a refurbishment in 2016, harks back to the days when cruising was all about the sea. She is one of the smallest ships in Royal Caribbean’s fleet, carrying 1,602-passengers to destinations across the Caribbean.
Though she doesn’t boast the signature Royal Caribbean FlowRider or North Star capsule, Empress of the Seas enchants you with delicious dining, endless relaxation and unforgettable itineraries. This vessel’s intimate size offers more on-board freedom while still offering some fantastic amenities such as the ‘Quest’ scavenger hunt, relaxing in the Viking Crown Lounge, dining in the Windjammer Marketplace and enjoying the fantastic service from outgoing crew members.
Empress of the Seas favours quality over quantity with a choice of three unmissable restaurants. Windjammer Marketplace offers casual, buffet-style dining piled high with cuisine from around the world, while Chops Grille presents quality, hand-cut steaks with a contemporary twist, as well as Maine lobster, veal parmesan, and other succulent dishes. The third restaurant, Chef’s Table offers a VIP dining experience where the Chef de Cuisine talks you through each course and an expert sommelier pairs each dish with the perfect wine.
Whether you are craving stunning views or luxury amenities, Empress of the Seas has the stateroom for you. Stylish Interior staterooms offer an escape from the main thoroughfare of the ship, surrounding you with home comforts. Ocean View staterooms help you greet the morning through windows revealing stunning seaside views, and suites (Junior, Owner’s and Royal) offer oodles of space complete with indulgent perks.
Empress of the Seas might not have all the bells and whistles of Royal Caribbean’s biggest ships, but she is still absolutely perfect for families. The Adventure Ocean® Youth Program will entertain children of all ages. Three to five year olds will have an educational blast in the Aquanauts group; six to eight year olds will be entertained by activities like themed parties in the Explorers program; and nine to 11 year olds will be taken on an educational thrillfest by the Voyagers group. Empress of the Seas offers plenty to keep you occupied morning, noon and night. Learn to salsa, swing or ballroom during energetic dance classes, grab a paddle and challenge your loved ones to a game of table tennis or take part in game shows like Battle of the Sexes. Head to the pool deck for cocktails and fun and games, or admire stunning Caribbean views from the top of the climbing wall.
Entertainment is everything on this stunning ship. Pool parties complete with DJs, midnight buffets, original theatre shows and live bands will all work to capture your imagination. There are also plenty of bars to choose from to take your dancing shoes on-board Empress of the Seas. Boleros Latin club offers sizzling salsa and samba music accompanied by tantalising cocktails and the Schooner Bar offers classy nights with accompaniment from a glistening grand piano. Add outdoor movie nights and a casino to the mix, and there is something for everyone.
