Ship: Empress of the Seas (RETIRED) 223 Reviewed: 7 years ago
This cruise is the best!!! I am a fan of Royal Caribbean. There are only two things that aren't great about this cruise, and it's the sports deck and the teen programs.The sports deck needs ping pong, and an enclosed "putting green." The teen programs: the dances were too short. But other than those, all details of this cruise were the best ever. The service was AWESOME, the people were great. Special thanks to DJ Brad! The islands I went to were St. Kitts, St. Lucia and Barbados! Barbados is nice, but my favorite island was St. Lucia, if you love horses and are thinking about riding on the beach, whether you are a first timer or a seasoned rider, you will love St. Lucia! There is a small stable by the name of "international riding stables." It isnt with the cruise line but they wait outside the ship. There aren't enough good words in the English language to say about this place! If you decide to take this riding experience of a life time, tell them "The blonde Jills" sent you, they might remember us. Hope you decide to sail on the Nordic Empress! Jill H., CT
