when it comes to older ships, expectations and attitude are everything. The ship is more than 50 years old. And while Imperial Majesty does a superb job maintaining it, it's still 50 years old, and you will notice that. As LisaP indicated, if someone expects a ship with all the latest facilities and amenities he or she will be very disappointed. However, if ones sees the chance of sailing on the "Regal Empress" as a (rare) opportunity to sail on a vintage, former trans-Atlantic liner which is a real ship and not a floating resort, one will likely have a great time. Sailing onboard a ship of this vintage is like making a step back in time.
While this is a budget product these days, the value for the money is very good if you don't expect a luxury product (which few cruise ships offer, by the way).
