Empress of the Seas

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.

  • Launched: 25 Jun 1990
  • 692 feet
  • 2020 passengers

Dining

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.
