Royal Caribbean International has announced that the newly-enhanced Empress of the Seas will rejoin its fleet in March 2016 following a stint with its sister brand, Pullmantur. The ship will offer short Caribbean cruises from Miami.
Empress of the Seas will sail four- and five-night itineraries from Miami to Nassau, The Bahamas; Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico; Grand Cayman and Key West, Florida. The sailings will offer longer stays in every port, and on select five-night itineraries guest can experience overnight stays in Cozumel, Mexico. Reservations are now available for booking.
Onboard the ship will offer daily "Sunday" brunches served with a complimentary mimosa or Bloody Mary, "My Time Dining" with no formal nights, a new Las Vegas-style “Sequins & Feathers” show and a newly reimagined Boleros Latin Lounge. Empress of the Seas also will offer fast pier-to-ship boarding with earlier boarding times of 11:00 a.m.
