Great Cruise

Sail Date: December 04, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Excellence service and entertainment aboard. Food was good although a little to repetitive towards the end. Too much emphasis on shopping during the next port information day. For our 11 night sailing of the caribbean in December the ship rolled too much for me and I was sea sick most of the cruise. Other than that it was the best itenerary for a southern cruise of all the cruise lines. A very good price for the number of ports

Pros: The number of ports visited

Cons: Too short of time in some ports

Recommends Empress of the Seas (RETIRED)? Yes!

St. John's, Antigua
Did the Antigua Highlights tour. Very beautiful scenery.
Castries, St. Lucia
Be sure and see Reduit beach. A very beautiful beach One of the best islands on the cruise. A beautiful port.
Don't Miss: Reduit beach Would definately go back again!
Curacao
One of the best ports on the cruise. Take theCuracao Sea and see tour. Be sure and buy the Liqueur at the factory. The best price on the cruise.Seaworld Explorer was worth it also.Lots of fish.

Margarita (Isla De Margarita), Venezuela
Don't do the shopping in Margarita tour. You just go to a modern shopping center like you would find in any big city. Too far from the port.
Don't Miss: Not a good stop
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Good beaches
