Will be going on Empress of the Sea Jan, 2005. Has anyone cruised this ship since it has been renovated? How is it? Also, how are the Junior Suites? Balcony seems small 25 sq feet? Itinerary seems great.

25 square feet does seem quite small. What itinerary are you going on?

Susan,
That is a fabulous itinerary. St. Barts, St. Kitts and St. Lucia are fabulous. I have never been to St. George's or Margarita Island so you will have to give us a ful report when you return.

I have not sailed the newly remodeled Empress yet, but I did have a friend just return from a Bermuda cruise on her. He said that it appeared most of the renovating was done to the public areas. They have added Portofinos (Italian specialty restaurant), a coffee bar and ice cream shop. My friend had a Jr. suite also and indicated the room was small compared to other Junior Suites he had been on in the RC fleet, but acceptable.

No matter what size the cabin, the itinerary should more than make up for spacious accomodations.
Nancy

My husband and I sailed on the Empress last week for the 8 night cruise to Bermuda. We had an oceanview stateroom. It was the smallest in the category, but more than enough space for us. We did not have a balcony. The ship is very nice, service outstanding, food okay except in Portofino where they earn every cent of the $20 supplement and atmosphere pleasant and friendly. Enjoy!

Hey.....are you booked on januray 17th?

I'm on that one too!

I'd have to agree that this ship appears tiny for 11 days, but honestly, with only one day at sea.....I don't intend on spending much time onboard!

What shore excursions are you thinking of doing?
