Empress of the Seas

Set a course for an exotic adventure onboard the spectacular Empress of the Seas(R), offering four, five and six-night tropical getaways to some of the hottest spots in Bahamas and the Caribbean including Cuba. With lively entertainment at Bolero's Latin Lounge, daily Sunday brunches, a pool-side DJ and much more, every day is a celebration onboard this incredible ship. 

How about with a mimosa over brunch (which happens every day, not just on Sunday) then a dip in the pool, followed by a bit of glitz at the fabulous Vegas-style bar? Onboard Empress of the Seas(R), every day is a fiesta!
