7 Night Bermuda (Norfolk Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 12, 2007
Ship: Empress of the Seas (RETIRED) 223
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)

The food, service and menu selection at the Carmen were fantastic. I enjoyed the waiters (say hi to Gilbert and Wesley!) who were so much fun to interact with. The children's program was also fantastic and gave my wife the break that she really needed. The ship was clean and although older had all the amenities.

Most of the time Main seating was overcrowded and some people stood up and second seating was half empty. Need to spread the folks out.
