7 Night Bermuda (Norfolk Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 19, 2007
Ship: Empress of the Seas (RETIRED) 223
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship is one of the oldest in the fleet and it shows. From the peeling paint to the thread bare carpet in the public spaces. The staterooms are very small, the paint is peeling in the room, and the carpet was stained. The end tables in the stateroom were chipped and scratched. The closet space was ok given the averall size of the room. The gaming area was well stocked with games and new packs of cards. The daily activies were excellent with someting for everyone. From trivia games to more active games (ie speed wall climbing).
3 out of 5
For people with disabilities the best way to see everyting is by horse drawn carriages. These carriages go allover the island and most of the drivers know the area well. If you are active take the ferry over to the Dockyard and spend the day walking and shopping. If you get the chance see the old fort and the governer's house. While inside of the fort there is a place where you can swim with the dolphins.
Don't Miss: The fort and the view at the top.

Pros: The dining room staff was really attentive to all customers

Cons: The ship is showing it's age. The staterooms are some of the smallest I have seen.
