Overview

CUBA'S BOLDEST SHORE EXPLORER

This is not itinerary idling. This is delving deep into shores that few have explored on the most adventurous cruise ship sailing Cuba - Empress of the Seas?. Let a local give you an insider's perspective on a classic car ride along Havana's historic Malecon. Go cobblestone road rambling and Afro-Cuban beat bumping in Santiago de Cuba, where some of the islands' most influential musicians got their start. And get your eco-tour on in Cienfuegos to discover why they call it the "Pearl of the South." All while immersing yourself in the Cuban culture onboard, like special entertainment, cuisine and guest lectures. No other major cruise line shows you Cuba like this.

Chops Grille

For more than a decade, the chefs of Chops Grille have proudly presented quality, hand cut steaks at this hallmark Royal Caribbean restaurant. Now, they give you a fresh twist on a favorite, with a revamped menu that brings contemporary flair to traditional steakhouse offerings. Most intriguing: our exceptional prime meat. This prime beef is joined by Maine lobster, veal parmesan, grilled branzino and other succulent dishes paired with addictive sides and irresistible desserts.

Chef's Table

If you enjoy gourmet fare paired with the finest of wines, then dining at Chef's Table is an absolute must. Located in an intimate, exclusive spot onboard, this private epicurean experience for a limited number of guests treats you to a five-course, upgraded menu and wine tasting. Dinner at Chef's Table is both experiential and educational, as the Chef de Cuisine specially prepares and presents each course, while explaining its cooking techniques, ingredients and flavors. Then a sommelier pairs every course with wine chosen to enhance your enjoyment of the dish.

Main Dining

Sweeping, multi-level ambience, world-class cuisine and the most attentive staff at sea. Our main dining room serves exceptional, multi-course meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy a new dinner menu each evening in an elegant setting, with extraordinary personal service from your dedicated wait staff.

Whether it's after dinner or after party, nighttime sizzles at Boleros, a Latin-themed club and hot spot serving Cuban mojitos, Brazilian capirinhas, or your favorite classic cocktails. A live six-piece band and singer belt out the Latin rhythms that get you moving, because it's all about the salsa, cumbia, merengue and samba. So get on the floor and dance.

Pool Bar

How about a drink as colorful as the Caribbean sunset? You don't have to stray too far from your poolside lounge to enjoy a frozen Mojito, exotic Mai Tai, Virgin Daiquiri, cool imported pilsner and more.

Schooner Bar

Is the pianist playing your song? Join the fun at Schooner Bar, where a nautical theme, warm decor and perfectly mixed cocktails come together. Cozy up in a seat under the mast, by the portholes, or right by the gleaming grand piano. The sing-along's starting soon.
