Royal Caribbean’s Empress of the Seas to Homeport in Miami


Royal Caribbean’s newly-enhanced Empress of the Seas ship will be returning to the company’s fleet in March after a stint with sister brand Pullmantur.

The ship will head to Miami for short Caribbean getaways.

The ship will offer four and five-night getaways from Miami to Nassau, Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico, Grand Cayman and Key West, Fla.

“We’re excited to welcome Empress of the Seas back to the family, and back to the Caribbean,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.  “Empress’s short Caribbean getaways will give adventure-seekers the opportunity to party, chill and repeat. They will feel like it’s the weekend every day on Empress.”

The ship will be offering amenities from a rock-climbing wall to new pools and whirlpools, along with an adults-only solarium, among others.

“Miami welcomes Royal Caribbean’s Empress of the Seas to the Cruise Capital of the World,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez. “We thank Royal Caribbean for expanding their cruise business at PortMiami. This new deployment further demonstrates the cruise line’s commitment to growing their business in Miami-Dade County. It represents continued economic growth and more job opportunities for our world-class community.”
