Empress of the Seas

Empress of the Seas will take you to the beautiful shores of the Caribbean and the Bahamas. During your at sea days, treat yourself to lovely cuisine, pool parties, shopping, classes, spa treatments, the rock climbing wall, a workout at the gym and more.

Live bands and performances mean world class entertainment is just a stroll away. Or, take the whole gamily to lounge on the pool deck and watch a movie on the 220 square foot movie screen.
