  1. Like someone else said, both are great ships. Indy is a little bigger. If either one goes to Coco Cay I would select that one. Coco Cay would be a great day for an 11 year old.
  2. We were also suppose to be on Empress today leaving for Bermuda. This was to be our second week of back-to-back on Empress to Bermuda. Our first week was originally suppose to be Canada and New England but it was changed to Bermuda.
  3. The showers on Empress are the smallest you will ever see. Just soap up the walls and spin around. 😀
  4. Love the orange Home Depot bucket.😀
  5. We sailed on the Golden twice and were suppose to be on the April 8th 29 day cruise from Sydney to L.A. that was cancelled. So sad, hate to see the ship leave. One of the last remaining ships with a Vista lounge at the back instead of Club Confusion.
  6. Empress has the tiniest little showers - reminds you of the original RCCL ships - Sun Viking, Song of Norway, and Nordic Prince.
  7. We have had an inside cabin on deck 8 in front of Central Park. No issues at all.
  8. We were on the Grandeur on its first call at Coco Cay. RCCL has done an excellent job on the island. Much better now that there is a dock. And the pool is great. Only problem we saw was the very aggressive birds around the food area. Don't leave you plate unattended because the birds will help themselves before you get back to sit down.
  9. When we were on Harmony the Diamond Lounge was standing room only every night. The Diamond Lounge is very small for such a large ship. The Concierge was terrible - it took him three days and much complaining from the passengers before he realized he needed an overflow lounge. This was by far the worst Diamond Lounge experience we have had on any RCCL ship.
  10. If you are going to do Hawaii, do a 15 day round trip from the West coast and back. We have done it both on Celebrity and Princess. Otherwise, do the Canal. It is amazing the engineering that built that canal is over 100 years old.
  11. Does anyone know if Princess provides more than one free mini-bar set-up on longer cruises. Just wondering since we are booked on a 29 days Princess cruise later this year.
  12. Just got off the Veendam today. Very easy de-barkation.
  13. Just got off the Veendam today and there were no ATK presentations or TV showings during the cruise. They did have one or two 'port' items on the MDR menu most nights.
  14. Just got off the Veendam today. They still had a printed daily newspaper but you had to go to Guest Services to get it. There was no longer a rack of them in the Lido deck every morning. The rack is now next to the Guest Services desk.
