Empress of the Seas

October 2016 - Empress of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Trip juggled due to Matthew

Thursday - 1 full day removed due to Miami port close

Friday - supposed to board 10:30-2:30 and leave at 4; unable to board until 5 due to port decision; left at 9ish

Saturday - Itinerary changed due to this so we spent Saturday at sea going at a snails pace and went to Nassau (which was direct hit from Matthew) instead of Key West

Sunday - only a few excursions available and many stores not open on Sunday or due to storm

Food - not as much variety (not sure if this was due to the short cruise, the storm, or just changes from RC)

Ship - ok, this is smallest I have been on and seemed lacking but I guess this is expected

Staff - Loved Elvis!  Perfect cruise director!  Room and food staff lackluster.

Drink Package - worth it since so much time spent on the boat.


I would travel on RC again but only on longer cruise and bigger boat, before I decide to switch cruise lines.


RC did provide 1.33 days credit for room and the prepaid drink package along with a 25% off voucher for good will.  I thought this was great gesture.

Key West, Florida - love Key West even though we didn't go there. If you love frozen drinks check out Flying Monkey Bar and Fogarty's restaurant. Lots of flavors to mix and match
