Spring great get away

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 13, 2015

Over all a good experience, no regrets. My review is probably tempered by my first cruise experience last year which was truly exceptional. The food was a B, the entertainment was a A-. The enchantment of the seas is an older ship and in some ways you can tell. The crew and support staff does an excellent job keeping the ship very clean and well maintained. The cruise director was outstanding and the entertainers were vegas quality for the most part. My only real gripe was that my 14 yo son was bored to tears. The teen club staff put out a schedule but appeared perfectly content with the non participation. Teens are usually shy and need a nudge and the staff didn't even half heartedly give one.

Look for another ship !!!!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 13, 2015

I've cruised only 4 times and this by far was the worst. I was so looking forward to spending a great cruise with my mom and this was very disappointing. We barely saw our room attendant. Every time I looked for him he was never around. Others were so I had to ask them for help. Even after requesting a chair for the shower for my 84 year old mother it took 3 requests and a trip to guest services. A day and a half later I finally got it. There were only 2 places to eat other than the sit down full service dining room. And they were at opposite ends of the ship. So if you didn't like the one you had to go all the way to the other end. Even the main dining room food was just average. Nothing special. If you wanted steak or lobster it was extra. Every other cruise I've been on you could have it every night if you wanted at no extra charge. The service was very slow between courses and even our initial greeting each night when we sat down was poorly executed. Since we didn't pay the extra up charge for soda or alcohol the only choices we had were very limited. Ice tea, lemonade, strawberry kiwi water, lemon lime water or orange juice ( only at breakfast). The entertainment bands were very bad. Every night they had an all male Asian band singing. Go on YouTube and listen to how bad any Asian sounds singing American music. It's just wrong!!!!!!! It's nothing against Asians but come on, our ship wasn't headed to Asia. The shows at night in the theatre were ok but I was expecting more. More like a broadway show or something that really moved you. Wasn't happening. During the day it would have been nice for them to have an indoor movie theatre for people that didn't just want to bake in the sun all day and drink non stop. The movie screen was right in front of the kiddie pool in the blazing sun all day. They could easily make the main theatre a place to watch a movie in peace and quiet. Over all there was very little to do on this ship. It is one of the older ships and the lay out is poorly designed. If you want to get to either end of the ship you mostly have to go from outside. You can't just walk end to end inside there's always something in the way. Find a newer ship, see what activities they offer, inquire about the music, the food etc. those things are the glue to making the experience great especially on your "Day at Sea" days. Sorry Enchantment....... You disenchanted me all the way !!!!!!!

Poor Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 10, 2015

The crew left a rope dangle on the side of the ship . It banged on the stateroom wall all night . They said they could not do anything because we were underway.

Crew moved us to another room  at 1 am. and the heat was on. Could not turn it off. WE had tho sleep with the door open all night.  My  little girl lost her glasses in the move .  Because they ran us off the ship at 8 am.  

Pool was closed when we got on the ship  for 2 days.  

Ship lost power and drifted for 5 minutes in the middle of the NIGHT !

First Time Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 10, 2015

This was the first cruise I have been on and we went as a class for our 50th reunion. It was very enjoyable and a great way to enjoy old friends. The entertainment from the shows to comedy to art auction were all a great experience.

Enchantment of the seas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2015

Overall the trip was good. The bad. No hot water in my cabin for 1 day. Do not try to buy the internet. I could not get the girl to explain to me why royal caribbean  wanted to charge 199.95 for the length of the cruise and Carnival was 59.00. Went to see a scheduled movie in the theater. They were having Bingo instead. I asked the girl if the movie was canceled. Her answer " Well we can wait until 12:15 and if the movie is not playing its canceled." I own an Auto shop and I almost went through the roof. Also the Ben and Jerrys was down the whole cruise.The good. The food was great. The room attendant took the time to know our names. Cabins were clean Buffet was awesome and the pools and other activties were good. The Island at Co Co cay was very nice.

The Great and The Not So Great!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2015

What was great: Great variety of food provided. Formal dining food was outstanding!! Great activities and information about what was going on was always available. The private Bahamas Island (Coco Kay) was fantastic. Entertainment was great. The room was a descent size for the four of us. Safety drill was okay, but more explanation could have been provided via brochure or something. Kids club was loved by the boys and they didn't want to leave. Service was always stellar!

What was not so great: As first time cruisers, we had no idea how the extra beds in the room worked. For instance, when we arrived, we thought there was only 1 bed. We we realized the beds were folded into the wall, we thought we needed the special tool to get them open, and we couldn't find the special tool in the room. It was so difficult getting through to guest services since many people were calling or visiting the desk for one reason or another. I finally got through to housekeeping and they explained to me that our concierge would come and open the beds.I recommend a nice brochure or something to explain how things on ship work. We spent too much time trying to figure this out and contacting someone to help us.

Cabin Readiness: Our cabin was ready early, which was great... so we thought. Our bathroom did not have enough towels and clothes for 4 people. So, I had to call for additional ones. Also, there was mold in our refrigerator. Although we didn't use it, I recommend taking the time to thoroughly prep the cabin. It is obvious the refrigerator has been missed for a long time with the mold in it. I would have been just  fine waiting a little longer for our cabin to be complete before occupying it.

Cabin Bathroom: The bathroom was clean but extremely small. The biggest issues were the sink and faucet. I recommend RC reconsidering the type of sinks and faucets used in the cabins' bathrooms. The faucet constantly sprayed water all over the place due to the type of force of the faucet and the small rounded bowl that was receiving the water. Since there was not a sink counter, the water always went onto the floor. It was very messy.

I would definitely go again, but to a different destination.

We loved the Enchantment of the Seas1

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2015

We had a great experience!  It was our first cruise....I had always wanted to take a cruise and couldn't convince my husband because he was afraid of getting seasick.  He wore a patch and I wore wristbands and we didn't have any trouble!  The staff was great, and it was very fun having the same waiters every night and also getting to know our room attendant.  The best surprise was how wonderful the private island was!  I didn't know what to expect, but it was beautiful, the lunch provided was delicious and I loved that it had its own straw market and lots of activities.  My sons were thrilled that there was a basketball court.  We are huge basketball fans and were thrilled that the ship showed the NCAA championship game on the big screen by the pool!

An Amazing Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 03, 2015

This was an amazing experience for my son and I. Royal Caribbean has very courteous, kind, knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming staff. My stateroom attendant Elvin left had an infectious smile that left a long lasting impression on my son and myself my entire vacation. I can not wait to travel with Royal Caribbean in the future.

Royal Carribean Consistently Good service

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 03, 2015

Royal always has a good friendly staff.  The ships are well taken care of. And plenty of place to get a drink. They take the time to learn you likes and names.  I like a great deal and nice comfort.  Toughest thing about cruises is getting the excursions you want before they sell out.  Scuba went fast and so did the Cabana's.  May have been too limited.

 

Carnival would be the cheapest and so is the service.

MammaGee
Third Mate

Go to the top front deck when the ship sails away from Cape Canaveral. We saw dolphins swimming all around. We always dined early for dinner so we could catch the show, so try to time your dinners accordingly.

I would recommend if you enjoy a quiet breakfast and to beat the rush go early 7 am sit in the pool area it's so nice and quiet you get an amzing view of the ocean it's wow...

Mathenbe
Second Mate

If you plan on going to the solarium go early. By 10 am all chairs will be filled. Tip: if you see that someone has left their belongings on chair for over 30 minutes just to try and reserve it please tell the staff. They will take care of this for you.
