11 Night Exotic Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 12, 2007
Ship: Empress of the Seas (RETIRED) 223
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago

Our Cabin Stewart and Waiter were wonderful...the rest of the service was below standard. The entertainment was sub standard, this was our 7th cruise, first time with Royal Caribbean...very disappointing. Although according to others that always use Royal Caribbean, this was not their usual experience. We were told by them not to judge RC by this cruise..but who wants to spend $3500 again in hopes that one of their other cruises would be better. We will see....
