7 Night Bermuda (Philadelphia Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 22, 2006
Ship: Empress of the Seas (RETIRED) 223
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Large Group

First cruise did not know what to expect, My first problem was walking from the port to the ship, did not expect a half mile walk with my bad ankle, everbody on the ship was very nice and tried to make us feel at home. All of the activities were well run and they were fun, Food and night life was great a step down from Vegas but enjoyable, The pool was not accessable to many people for the pool size, not enough deck chairs this was a bit disconserning. I am looking forward to my next cruise I will be able to ask better question before I book, I have a better understanding of the cabin size and what will I need to make my stay more plesent.
