The staff on the Empress of the Seas was very friendly and accommodating.The food was good,if your first choice wasn't what you expected, you could choose something else , the wait was not too long.We paid for everything in advance,which made it easy to enjoy our vacation without worries.This was the first time we thought we'd try an interior cabin and we regret it! We heard EVERYTHING our neighbors were doing and saying!!!! We tried to turn our TV up to drown the noise out, but that didn't work! When we got off the ship we were exhausted from lack of sleep during the cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was kept clean, the staff was very nice and friendly. We had an interior cabin. We heard EVERYTHING our neighbors were doing and saying. We were lucky if we were able to get 3 hours of sleep!!!

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Beach and staff were really nice, activities were a bit pricey.
Key West, Florida
The trolly tour was worth the cost. Great history. Beaches were very "fishy", not great for lounging while we were there.


We like Royal Caribbean, in fact we booked another cruise, but we will NOT choose an interior cabin again. We're choosing an outside cabin with neighbors on one side.I guess I'm a little older and a light sleeper.
