New Cruise Review: Regal Empress

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Jeff has submitted his review of his cruise this month aboard the Regal Empress, and it's now available. This was Jeff's fourth cruise aboard the Regal Empress, and the ship sailed to the Bahamas. Jeff, I'm so glad you had a good time. Thanks for sharing your review with us!

Be sure to check out Jeff's new review! :grin:

Interesting review, which made us reminisce about our second cruise, Canada/New England in 2001, on the Regal Cruise Lines' wonderful old Regal Empress. Jeff has muddled the history a bit. In 1993 it was acquired by Regal Cruise Lines, not Imperial Majesty (IM): that's how it got its present name. Two or three years ago the ship had boiler problems, and Regal couldn't pay for repairs. The ship was laid up for a short time; then it was acquired by IM. IM didn't change the name, but shifted the ship to the short Bahamas itinerary.

As we stated on our comments on Popsec's Zenith review, we don't see how a cruise can be excellent if the stateroom is only fair. Undoubtedly, the tiny staterooms with funky showers are the worst part of a Regal Empress cruise. It's nice to see that the food is still good, and that the ship is still beautiful. Still, we're unlikely to cruise on the Empress again unless it has another itinerary: we just don't want to go to the Bahamas again.

Looks like we missed each other by a week. I checked my scrapbook, and we were on the August 5 cruise. I recall that the ship did 5 nights to Canada, followed by a 2-night weekend cruise.

Darn -- I was hoping we might have turned up in the background of some of each other's pictures. :grin:

Thanks for your review of the Regal Empress. I remember your encouraging me to try the Regal Empress in 2004. I had a great time but it was such a short period of time. I'm glad the food is still good.

I remember when the Regal Empress was doing 2 night "Cruise To Nowhere" trips out of New York City. I was still in that "I would never take a cruise" period.
