Review summary

We enjoyed our cruise, of course each cruise is what YOU make of it.  The ship was clean but in need of refreshing, but we knew when we booked that she was going in to drydock just after this cruise.  The main entrée portions in the dining room are larger than most of the other cruises we have been on.  In the buffet the plates were platters that many cruisers would pile full.  We elected to eat normal portions!  We enjoyed the comedy shows in the Burgundy Lounge, the country show in the Encore, and several movies on the Lido Dive In Theatre.  We met our room steward when we arrived and elected to have evening service only.  We have service before that would appear and make the bed each time we left the room, so we thoroughly enjoyed our steward cleaning our cabin while we had dinner.   We had an extended aft balcony on Empress #7460 and were pleased with our cabin and enjoyed the view of the wake just below us.

We usually try to book an aft balcony or suite and feel the privacy and views are very much worth the extra $$. Just don't tell your friends and keep my little secret! Tell them to book inside and use the extra money to drink and gamble!!
