Empress of the Seas - ABOUT THIS SHIP

Empress of the Seas may be smaller than our other ships, but don't let its size fool you. You'll find everything you've come to expect onboard a Royal Caribbean ship, like panoramic ocean views from the two-story ShipShape™ Day Spa and Fitness Center, romantic dinners in Portofino, our specialty Italian restaurant and dancing in the Latin-themed bar, Boleros. Its unique combination of smaller size and amazing amenities has put Empress of the Seas in a league of its own.
