  1. There are 12 muster stations. 1 & 2 are in the theater and 11 & 12 are in Boleros. All the others are outside.
  2. We were on Empress June 29 - July 7. On our second day there was an invoice left in the room with our credit posted. The credits were put back on our credit card the day after we got off the ship.
  3. We just finished our 8 day cruise on Empress last Sunday. We were originally planning to go to Cuba but we all know that didn’t pan out. While our room was small, it was definitely bigger than some of the others we saw. It was 7164 and had a cut out area that had a twin bed that we used as a sofa/storage area. The ship was small but you definitely got around quickly and got to know a lot of people. We had my time dining which we thought worked really well. We had the same waiters every night. The pool was really small but had very few kids (there was a kiddie splash area nearby). Our favorite bar was Boleros and our favorite bartender was Louis, who can create many different types of martinis🍸. All in all, I’m glad we went thru with the cruise (the 50% off helped) but I’m not sure we would travel on the ship again.
  4. Great review Sue! We had the pleasure of meeting you and your husband several years ago when sailing on Allure. Glad you are continuing the review. 😎
  5. Great beginning. Hope you enjoyed your first day. Can’t wait to hear more.
  6. I believe there is a cupcake store on Liberty. That may be an option.
  7. Yay! Another live review. My cruise isn’t until this summer and these live reviews are really helping pass the time.
  8. We ordered it on Allure last summer and it was in our room when we boarded. It was great for having a drink on the balcony. We would definitely order it again.
  9. Thanks for the wonderful review! We are booked for this summer and in all honesty I wasn’t terribly excited about this cruise, but my husband really wanted to go to Cuba. I was leery of the small, older ship with no balconies but after reading your review, I can’t wait! Thanks for taking the time to do this.

  11. We are on currently on Allure. Starbucks has a full service menu with cold brew coffee. Cafe promenade does not have cold brew. They have a Frappuccino. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. There is a Starbucks onboard. I am hoping they have it. We are in in 2 weeks. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. Love that bag! Where’d you get it? I really need one that keeps phone and lip balm cool and has a zipper Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. We had MTD on Oasis and never waited more than 5-10 min. We were a party of 2. We prefer MTD because first seating is too early and second seating is too late. We always went in between and never had a problem. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. I like the color in the first one (sunset). Also, you can see your name better. Sent from my iPad using Forums
