I am contiplating a last minute Bermuda cruise on the Empress of The Seas. Has anyone had any experience with this ship? I know that it is small--I can handle that (it's worth it to go to Bermuda)...but how are the ammedities (spelling). I came across a great deal on the Royal Carribean site--$609 for 8-nights to Bermuda (Military Rate)--How can I pass that up? I would appreciate imput.

Hi,
You will like the Empress of the Seas...yes she is smaller than the huge megaships out there...but you just might find that you will appreciated a smaller ship. And going to Bermuda on her also means less people in Bermuda...she is a real nice ship.

Ahhh...Bermuda, only place in the world with pink sand beaches! You'll love it.

Happy sailing, Neil

My husband and I actually started out our marriage there--we lived there for 3+ years and had our first two children there. It is our favorite place in the world, and we love going "home" to visit whenever we can! (I'm so bummed--as it turns out, I couldn't get anyone to cover me at work, so I won't be able to get this cruise after all.)

I found an even better price for the May 12 Bermuda Sailing...so I booked it. I've never done such a "spur of the Moment" cruise before. Sometimes those are the best vacations! I'm still a bit leary of the small ship, but it Royal Caribbean, so I'm sure it will be great-right?!

I'm back--it was a GREAT trip. To all of you who may be leary of a smaller ship like the Empress, rest assured that it upholds the Royal Caribbean tradition. It is a beautiful ship, and easy to learn your way around. The only downside that I would warn about is the size of the cabins. I did'nt know that they could be so small-but it just makes you explore the ship rather than stay in your room!
Thanks to everyone for steering me toward this ship--it was indeed great!
