5 Night Key West & Cozumel (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 25, 2016
Ship: Empress of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

no major concerns, 5 days perfect for first time cruisers, had to change port locations because of ship issues, turned out o be a plus, weather was hot,hot,hot. Food was good,staff everywhere on board were always available. The only small issues were water and ice machine not always working and would like to have had silverware and drinks at table so you are not juggling thru the buffet line. Also ship needs another pool which can't do anything about now. Great trip...

PS trip would not have happened without the help of Candace from,she put it all together,she made it easy.
