11 Night Exotic Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 18, 2006
Ship: Empress of the Seas (RETIRED) 223
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)

It seemed that certain areas of the ship were not stocked well with simple things like napkins or trash cans. Also, many surfaces were dirty. For instance, the seats on the ship had dirty, sticky arm rests.

Don't Miss: Don't miss the historical tours. They will take you to the top of one of the major mountains to see an old stone fort used for protecting the island many years ago. It's well worth the treck.
