Empress of the Seas Cruise Review by Yankee Cruiser99
- Sail Date: December 2018
- Destination: Cuba
- Cabin Type: Ocean View Stateroom
Breakfast and lunch are always a buffet. Food is okay. Dinner in the dining room was pretty good. Plenty of choices. Plates at the buffet could have been collected sooner. Service at dinner was excellent but wine brought to the table could have been delivered in a more timely manner.
Entertainment at night was very good to excellent. We really enjoyed every show.
In Havana we arranged a private tour which was a lot less costly and offered more than the ships tours. After a full day of touring which included a ride in a 1950s era Dodge convertible, the tour guide returned us to the ship and came back at night to take us to a show that we bought tickets for. Royal Caribbean charged triple for the same show.
In Cienfuegos we took a ship excursion to Trinidad which we enjoyed. All in all we enjoyed our experience in Cuba.
The Cayman Islands and Labadee in Haiti were our other 2 visits.
Disembarkation could have been handled more smoothly. The ship had us gather way to early to leave the ship. (I was leaving with my luggage.).
