September 2016 - Empress of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
Since the ship was not a mega one, there were quick or no lines. Seating was always available for the shows without having to get there an hour early. Use of the gym, rock climbing or the pool was always easily accessible. Plenty of on board activities to choose from. Top floor had hammocks and large pillowed lounges to rest, read or doze on. Food food and more food. Sorry to say, you will gain weight on this cruise. Not just a lot of food, but quality food. All the food you can stuff down your throat. The dining room servers will bring you all you ask for.
Upon returning to your cabin, the bed is made, fresh towels at the ready, and an animal made towel on the bed.
The only disappointing part of the cruise was when it ended.
