I have mentioned before that I was interested in "small ship cruising". With Empress sailings out of Bayonne now we've booked a July 2021 New England/Canada cruise on her. Since there is not a balcony stateroom class on this ship, which we prefer, we booked an aft JS so we could have a balcony. We have done a similar cruise on Adventure so we are familiar with the ports, excursions offered, etc. Anybody have anything I should know about sailing the Empress? I know it's a ways off but any tips or secrets would be appreciated.
