Empress of the Seas

Empress of the Seas may be one of Royal Caribbean's smaller vessels, but she's certainly not a small ship. With three dining venues, four bars, an onboard theatre, a casino, a spa and an extensive kids' programme, Empress is definitely adept with bringing excitement to the seas. The ship even featured in the novel 'World War Z' that inspired the Hollywood blockbuster of the same name starring Brad Pitt, and the service levels and sumptuous accomodations on-board are fit for A-listers too.
