Empress of the Seas

Empress of the Seas sails with Royal Caribbean, after a stint of cruising for Pullmantur, and is the smallest in the fifty thousand tonne class of ships in the Royal Caribbean fleet. Despite its relatively modest dimensions, the ship is perfect for the demands of its 1,800 passengers thanks to an intimate and high level of service. On board six hundred and seventy crew members provide a favourable personnel to guest staff ratio offering customers an unforgettable experience.

Empress of the Seas offers coast hugging itineraries into sparkling harbours, coves and bays often not accessible to bigger ships. This is ideal for anyone looking to explore more and get closer to the life on land of some truly exciting destinations. For your convenience, Royal Caribbean and Planet Cruise also offer flights and if you want to extend your stay you can choose the nights before or after the cruise in one of the hotels according to your preferences and the number of nights.

Built and revitalised in the world famous SFX Atlantic shipyards in Saint-Nazaire in April 2016, the new philosophy of "One lives only once" prevails throughout the ship offering more variety and choice of features for the whole family and all on board. Facilities for all are its goal, so if you're lucky, visit the Casino Royale Las Vegas or refresh yourself in the Spa with a wide range of treatments. You will find wellness in the two hot tubs, the hammam and sauna rooms as well as the swimming pools, one for children and one for adults and children where tranquility prevails and you can relax sipping your favorite drink.
