Empress would be a great ship for Bermuda! I believe that Empress might be small enough to dock In Hamilton and St. Georges like ships used to do. But I'm not sure???

It can, we sailed on the Empress out of Phila to Bermuda (Hamilton & St George) several times a few (well many) years back.  That was one of our favorite itineraries, much nicer than sailing into the generic Naval dockyard.  If they can no longer sail to Cuba maybe they can use the Empress for the Phila to Bermuda run again!

Where in Philly did this dock?

We sailed her (the Nordic Empress back then) to Bermuda from NYC back in 2002.  Docked at the Naval Yard then moved to Hamilton.  It was a wonderful cruise!

I wonder call the Royal naval Dockyard "Generic" --- It's actually quite nice there.  Of course, there's been a huge emphasis on developing that end of the island.

We sailed the Song of America in 1997, docked two nights in Hamilton and one night in St. George's.  It was great!

I just checked and RC now has scheduled sailings to Cuba through April 2020, so they must feel confident that the sailings will continue.

So much for Chicken Little and the sky's falling! LOL!!!!

I wonder if they'd fit under the Duluth Harbor Lift Bridge?  (I'm still pushing for cruises out of Minnesota/Wisconsin).

Or fit in the St. Lawrence Seaway Locks in Massena, NY?  Quebec City to New Orleans.  That would be cool.
