Empress of the Seas is a small ship, which was great for my parents.  Everything is not far away and if they ever forgot something, they were able to go back & get it themselves.  The small size also made the tenders easy.

Rock climbing wall was nice, eveny my 81 year old dad tried it out!

Sea days was great - they offered Brunch which starts at 9:45 so no one was obligated to wake up early - and it included a Mimosa or Bloody Mary.  The food was nothing to write home about & presentation was a bit sloppy. Royal Caribbean allows passengers to bring wine onboard (1 per cabin) which is a nice feature.  Overall we had a great time.
