With Royal Caribbean having sold Empress of the Seas, I thought it would make sense to take one last look around the ship before she leaves the fleet.
Empress of the Seas has been sold to an undisclosed party, based in Asia-Pacific and many cruise fans will miss being able to sail on this iconic cruise ship.
Empress of the Seas was launched in 1990, transferred to Pullmantur Cruises in 2008, and then brought back to Royal Caribbean in 2016.
