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.
