Father's Day Celebration

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 22, 2015

My husband and I were looking for a last minute cruise to celebrate Father's Day. We found and it exceeded our expectations of relaxation! From arrival to Port Canaveral to boarding the ship! The expedient check in and settling into our room was beyond excellent. Cant think of one complaint everything was perfect including the weather!

It was OK... not bad..not great

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 19, 2015

Our room was spacious, as we opted for  balcony suite.  But it was dirty, hand markings over the bed and sand all in the carpet and the shower curtain was brown from mildew.  The food was better than I expected, as the dining room staff was very attentive, the server even cut up my children's steak fr them.  I also had purchased a premium beverage card and the drinks were a little weak but as far as I could see they were using top shelf liquor and it included the Starbucks on the ship.  The pool space was EXTREMELY SMALL!!!!!!! We didn't even attempt to go in it as it was so crowded and the decking was soooo hot you would get a third degree burn from stepping on it.  Also the kids activities were always full so none of our four kids could do any of the activities and the rock wall was closed AND the bungy jump was closed, so they get a BIG two thumbs down for that.  As far as the ports we visited, Nassua Bahamas is TERRIBLE, a shanty town full of hustlers attacking you as you get off the ship, then we went to Atlantis Resort and they wanted to charge us 700.00 to go in their water park for two hours!  Needless to say we did not do that so we went back to the beach were it is was littered with broken glass.  My recommendation is to just stay on the ship.  Cococay was beautiful, we did a jet ski tour which was ok.  They gave us a very good BBQ lunch on the resort as well.  My recommendation would to be get off the ship EARLY and book ypur excursions right away, because if you don't you will not get a reservation, as it is first come first serve and it fills up quick.  We tried to go para sailing and tried to book it at 12 noon and EVERYTHING was booked for the day.  Overall an ok trip but not worth the 6000.00 price tag we paid for 2 adults and 4 kids!Nervous

Good Cruise Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 19, 2015

Prepare to be nickeled and dimed to death, there is a fee for every little thing. Food was good desserts were nasty. The stops were beautiful the only problem is all these tour guides and people trying to sell you things. Room service attendant took really good care of us. When we had a question we asked her for instructions. Great price. Pay the gratuity charge up front so that you aren't blindsided by it. Don't bring liquor on board they'll hold it until the end and charge ridiculous prices to bring theirs. $7 for a redd's apple ale (really). Would rather fly to destination, but did enjoy being in a different place every night.

Enchantment of the Seas - needs a refurbishment

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 19, 2015

While the staff was friendly, accommodating and professional, the ship itself needs a major overhaul.  While in the women's restroom nearest the casino, the door fell totally off the hinges next to me.  Our cabin (which I paid extra for a Junior Suite) was hardly any larger than a regular cabin on most ships....plus there was rust everywhere on the balcony and the door handle leading onto the balcony was broken.   This was my fifth RCL cruise and still my favorite line, but I'd never take a cruise on the Enchantment ever again.   I'll opt for the newer, larger ships.

3 Day Enchantment

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 19, 2015

Spent three days on Enchantment of the Seas to Nassau.  The ship shows sign of age but overall it was a nice experience.  The buffet area was small and became very crowded.  The amount people versus sitting area was very hard to find a seat.  You passed on getting an omlette or eggs cause the one line was way too long to wait.  The rooms showed there age but at the same time were well maintained.  RCCs private island Coco Cay was very nice and I was quite surprised.  It was spacious and being tendered was not an issue.  The staff was top notch and for three days this was a fun time.  If I chose a seven day I would want a larger boat.  But overall a great cruise.

It was good but not great

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 19, 2015

Me and my wife enjoyed ourselves, but for what we paid, we expected more.  The boat needs some serious updating for one.  The food was hit or miss, especially the breakfast in the Windjammer...but I know that they make it in bulk for a lot of people, so it is not going to be great.  The dinner in My Fair Lady was mostly good, the duck and eggplant parmigiana was great.  There was no rain when we were on the boat, so all of the entertainment and the pool was available the whole time. There were quite a few things to do, but it felt like there could be more options during the day.  We were done in the Bahamas and Cocokay before the time we had to be back on the boat, and when we got back on we ended up hanging out in our room and sleeping for a few hours because there was nothing else to do.  We had fun with some of the night activities, Love and Marriage and The Quest were the most fun things we did during the cruise.  We would cruise again, but only on a different boat, and if we pay less than we did for this one.

room service and dinging service is very good. Excellent work done by the dining arrangement lady!

Wonderful

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 19, 2015

This was my second cruise, my 18 year old daughter's first cruise. However this was my first Royal Caribbean Cruise and I have to tell you that royal Caribbean is the way to go. We enjoyed everything about the cruise. But if we were going on a longer cruise like a week long I would want a larger ship with more activities. The only thing I would change is that I would book a shore excursion for the Bahamas. We did the enjoy our time in Port. But our time on coco cay island was incredible and the highlight of that day. I can't wait to book my next cruise!

Cruise was better than expected for being so short, really loved the shore excursions

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 15, 2015

Would never book through cruises only again though, they repeatedly messed up the payments we made toward the cruise and never coordinated the ground transportation, even though it was paid for. We waited 3 hours to get picked up from the airport and had to get on the phone for an hour the night before to make sure the next things were getting handled, and had to pay out of pocket and get a refund for some because they dropped the ball. The Royal Caribbean part though was really great. I loved the boat, the food and the activities. We picked some pricey shore excursions (dolphin cay at Atlantis and Aquaventure and stingrays at Coco Cay) but I really liked the island and the cruise portion of our combined Universal / Royal Caribbean package.

Outdated, But Great Service

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 15, 2015

The ship is somewhat old and somewhat small, like most shorter cruises. The staterooms were outdated and worn. The carpet looked dingy from wear and the tiles and shower in the bathroom did as well. The service was excellent! Our stateroom attendant, Elvin was very helpful and friendly. Our dinning room servers, Carla & Sachin were also excellent. They remembered our drink preferences and were very friendly and helpful! The food was excellent, but the portions were somewhat small. The hours for the Windjammer and the Cafe were annoying. I also did not like that if the cafe was closed, you could not get drinks even though it was a self-serve station. This is not a problem on Cranival's cruise ships. Also, the buffett-style dining area is not like a food court like you see on Carnival's ships. This means that the whole thing is closed at times, whereas on Carnival you may see a station or two closed at a time, not the whole dining area, which I liked better. The entertainment on the ship was excellent! The singers & dancers put on very good shows! The other acts--comedian & juggler--were also very good. The band & orchestra were also very good. There were a lot of excellent art pieces to look at throughout the ship. The adult area was well patrolled to keep kids out, which was nice. The adult area also has a pool and is larger than on similar sized Carnival ships. The amenities on board were somewhat lacking. It would have been nice to have putt-putt golf, billiards, or bowling on board. The poolside movies were nice, but variety would have been better. They repeated some movies during the cruise. Coco Cay is amazing! It is well developed with amenities right on the island. Overall, the cruise was nice for the money, but it may be worth it to spend a little more on a newer, nicer ship with more amenities. At Nassau we did the Forts & Pirates tour. I would not recommend it. There is not much to see at the forts as they are not very big. The pirate museum contained mostly replicas and very little actual artifacts. It was a major disappointment. If I go back I would go to Atlantis. The Nassau area is a little sketchy, but the beach is within walking distance if you do not want to spend the cash to go to Atlantis. At CoCo Cay, we did the kayaking excursion which was excellent. We also did the Treasure Hunt Snorkeling. I didn't order the kayaking & snorkeling combo because it was still listed as 1.5 hrs and I wanted to be able to snorkel at leisure. I thought maybe that was a tour group. Don't waste money doing that, the combo packs give you access to the snorkel gear the whole day, so it's worth buying it in a combo to save money. CoCo Cay was amazing! They brought food from the ship, so you did not have to go back. It was also nice to beach while feeling secure because there were only people from the ship on the island.

CoCo Cay: If you want to relax, rent a cabana-ette. Good for 2 people, comes with 2 beach loungers, 2 floating beach mats, 2 bottles of Evian & fruit. There is a bar. You have to take a ride to it, so it's like a private beach. There is decent snorkeling in the waters (saw a lot of fish).

The Solarium is the place to be! Not even sure I want to share this tip! There are no children allowed, which made it a wonderful place to relax by the indoor pool and spas while the weather outside was awful! In the Windjammer, FIND YOUR TABLE FIRST! It gets crowded, get your table before food!

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...
