Cruise Destination

Empress of the Seas

Enjoy Tons of Fun aboard Empress of the Seas

Some things are constant in life - since Empress of the Seas set sail, it's lived up to the Royal Caribbean reputation for fun-filled cruise vacations everyone will love. At just under 700 feet long and a little over 48,000 tons, there's a world of amenities for families and couples alike.

Talk about entertainment and relaxation! Empress of the Seas delivers countless options every day and night. Play your favorite card games at the all-new Casino Royale. Dance to the Latin beat and Salsa rhythm at Boleros. With Broadway-style shows in the theater, you're bound to give standing ovations. Did we mention there are pool parties? When it's time to kick back, melt your cares away in the hot tubs or just splash around in the pool. Of course, there's always a soothing massage in the spa!

You can't mention an Empress of the Seas cruise without digging into the dining details. All your meals are included in the Main Dining Room, which has more than enough variety to keep your taste buds excited the whole trip. The Windjammer Café's eclectic menu is also full of popular flavors, and all included – just like the Sunday Brunch (daily!) and its free Bloody Mary or Mimosa. But be sure to upgrade to Chops Grille at least once for simply outstanding steaks.
