Eleven decks above the sea, Royal Caribbean’s signature Viking Crown Lounge offers panoramic views and nightly dancing on the Nordic Empress. 

A colorful playroom and bubble-ball pool are part of the Nordic Empress “space station” youth center.

The Centrum, Nordic Empress’ nine-deck atrium, features a glass skylight, cascading waterfall, and white marble and crystal-drop sculpture of a ship’s prow. 

The two-level Carmen Dining Room on Nordic Empress features walls of windows for meals with a sea view.

Sun Deck on board Nordic Empress offers two swimming pools, three whirlpools, several bars, and thousands of square feet of sunning room.

Royal Caribbean’s signature music theme sounds a chord on Nordic Empress with public rooms named for Broadway musicals or operettas.
