October 2016 - Empress of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas
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.
