It looks as if there are no balcony cabins even in the Deluxe Suites. Am I misreading the layouts?If the cabins hasnt been altered in anyway, there is no real balcony cabins. There are four cabins with "balconys" in the aft, but the only thing with these is possible to open the windows in a room seperated from the rest of the cabin with a glassdoor. I have never experienced any of these "balcony" cabins myself. I'd rather go for one of the up-front deluxe cabins.
Anyone know how many elevators are on the ship?..... All i am sure of are the 2 round ones in the atrium.If I am reading the deck plans correctly, there are for passenger lifts in addition to the two in the central atrium.
did some poking around myself.....so....we got the "free" cruise with timeshare presentation....I'll bet we get this room. Oh crumb...These cabins that you mention here was not bookable back when she sailed from Oslo to Denmark for a few months last year, i have serious doubts that they are open now. Atleast they are not on the deck plans iv'e seen of her as Bahamas Celebration.
star inner cabins (W2/W4
These inner cabins are the most inexpensive and are located on Deck 1 under the car deck. They are modestly furnished with two, three or four berths (upper and lower). Each cabin has a sink and mirror, while showers and WC are located in the corridor.
I wasn't impressed from the start at all, anyway. An old ferry as a cruiseship.JMO-but I think you're making way to much of the fact it is a converted ferry. Even if you were sailing the Empress, if you boarded expecting the amenities of the Pearl (or any other mainstream cruise ship) you would be setting yourself up for a letdown.
I want the Regal Empress back

At least the Regal Empress was originally a cruiseship....wasn't it?
