August 2016 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Empress of the Seas
Small Ship, nice change
Empress of the Seas is a small ship, which was great for my parents. Everything is not far away and if they ever forgot something, they were able to go back & get it themselves. The small size also made the tenders easy.
Rock climbing wall was nice, eveny my 81 year old dad tried it out!
Sea days was great - they offered Brunch which starts at 9:45 so no one was obligated to wake up early - and it included a Mimosa or Bloody Mary. The food was nothing to write home about & presentation was a bit sloppy. Royal Caribbean allows passengers to bring wine onboard (1 per cabin) which is a nice feature. Overall we had a great time.
