The ship was neat and clean. There was always something going on that was entertaining and fun.

Pros: The friendly and courteous manner of all the crisue employees

Cons: The ship is on the small side. With high seas and winds a larger ship might have made the trip a little more stable.

Recommends Empress of the Seas (RETIRED) 223? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was one the small side, which made the rough seas alittle difficult to handle. The attitude of all the employees on board was great. They were always willing to help in anyway possible.
Cabin / Stateroom
We wanted a stateroom with a balcony; but do to the size of the ship we were unable to book one. The outside stateroom we had was clean and every request we made was addressed. There was however not alot of storage for clothing and essentials which caused some clutter.
Food and Dining
This was our second cruise and the dining room staff was wonderful. By the end of the cruise we became friends.
Service and Staff
Everyone on this ship was great.
We enjoyed the shows and acts that performed on this cruise.
Hamilton, Bermuda
Hamilton, Bermuda was a little to commerical for us. Traffic was heavy with buses and scooters, which made navigating the sidewalks and crosswalks a little unsafe. We took a bus to Horseshoe Bay and to Gibb's Hill Lighthouse, the views were fantastic. The contrast between the pink sandy beaches and the ocean were beautiful. The Port Royal Golf Course had several scenic holes and was in good shape. We rented clubs from the course which was a great idea.
Don't Miss: The view from the top of Gibb's Hill Lighthouse.
St. George's, Bermuda
Don't miss a minute of anything!! By far the best part of the Island. We rented scooters and rode for 3 hours. The age and beauty of this part of the island was truly a humbling experience.
Don't Miss: St. Peter's Church and State House.
