The best time ever!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: May 21, 2015

The cruise was great! Fun for all age groups! Food was amazing, service was great as well. Plenty to do while on board, didn't have to leave the ship unless you wanted to. The only negative thing was the "guest service" area was always crowded with long lines. I enjoyed the dancing with the stars! Make sure you bring picture money, they took the most amazing pictures, I had to buy them all, quite pricey but worth it! Overall, I had a great time.

First Time Cruise - Gr8 Experience!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: May 18, 2015

This was our first cruise and found Royal Caribbean service is hands down FOUR STAR. The staff are EXTREMELY GOOD at their jobs showing respect, kindness and a willingness to serve at every turn. Notably, from the moment we arrived, our stateroom attendant was ever-present and available to even our smallest requests and managed to slip in and out of our cabin so often, our room was always tidy and clean.

DINING: On the 3rd evening, we dined at MY FAIR LADY and it was a white glove experience. Our waiter Eduardo even made the choice of appetizer, entree and wine an easy one to make. The downside was while the menu had vegetarian options, they were very limited.

I must admit that dining in the Windjammer Buffet was overall a more convenient experience and the selection of food items were more diverse. The hours that are kept are extremely flexible and allowed us to eat almost at our leisure between all our activities and naps. The wait staff there were incredibly attentive as they carefully navigate amongst the throngs of passengers like a well-choreographed dance.

Latte-tudes on Deck 6 offers up Starbucks beverages and sweets and is opened extended hours. The coffee at the Windjammer was sub-par, so this was a nice alternative and the beverages here were also included in our unlimited beverage package. The only downside here were the blenders that were broke on almost every visit we made to get a Frappucino (apparently from the over-use and popularity.)

The Park Café on Deck 9 is a GREAT alternative and perfect for a late night pizza snack especially after a late night of drinking. During daylight hours they offer a salad bar which was remarkably simple, but a healthy delicious and convenient alternative.

Notably, the Bartenders have a a difficult job of keeping passengers lubricated and appeased and I am sure there are some  passengers who are more demanding than others. By and large, kudos to all mixologists!

Ports of Call: I must admit that I found Coco-cay far exceeded my expectations, partly due to the weather that was mostly raining in Nassau. I've been to Nassau before and was still glad to shop and visit Atlantis. We did not opt for any excursions but were told that if we go to Atlantis after 5, we could get in for free, only to be turned away after catching a cab over there. We realized that this is a loosely enforced policy and managed to go through the hotel lobby (not the casino), and was able to access the gorgeous grounds and see the aquarium which was well worth the walk.

Coco-Cay was (surprisingly) gorgeous and personifies the tropical island experience. We did not even board the tender till noon where we quickly settled in and got in the water for some overdue swimming and snorkeling. There is really nothing very interesting by way of a reef to see, but there are some artificial ruins that have been placed for the snorkelers.

I was not aware of the amenities available on the Cay and it was unclear as we debarked the tender as to where I could use my C Pass or where I must use cash. I would advise bringing some cash with you just in case.

 

In fact, by the time we got out of the water at 2:30 there was seemingly no food options available to us that we could find. Again, this was not a big deal knowing we would soon be back on the Enchantment to dine. We also failed to realize we must bring our towel(s) with us and ended up doing without towels on the Cay; no biggie.

The maintenance department probably does not get much recognition but I have to give props for a very rapid response from engineering when our safe refused to open. A maintenance man was at our door within mere moments of calling guest services. Nice work!

Production staff, cast & crew; What can I say? The show(s) are the cherry on the cake. The Orpheum Theater is gorgeous and inviting and there's just not a bad seat in the house. The singers and dancers work very well together and really put on 2 great shows but Stage to Screen to me is definitely the standout production with its full live orchestra, amazing costumes, choreography, lighting and sets. The live jazz sets on the Centrum are a great way to get to know the singers better and again, the musicians are really some of their unsung heroes who make all the magic possible. We also played BINGO in the Orpheum which was worth the chance to win some cash and a free cruise for two, albeit luck was not on our side for this game.

I cannot emphasize enough the quality of the staff and only regret that I did not take note of the names deserved of being mentioned.  I am quite certain that if it weren't for the synchronous teamwork at hand from stem to stern, our trip would not have been the same.

We chose the Enchantment to celebrate my birthday (also notably acknowledged by RC staff with Birthday Cards in the stateroom) as well our 15th anniversary which was an unforgettable experience for both of us. We were unsure whether a 4 night cruise would be enough time, but it was a perfect reprieve and while we were completely satisfied, we were also happy to be headed home after 4 nights aboard ship.

Royal Caribbean delivered a SAFE and FUN journey that allowed us to make and enjoy memories that will last a lifetime. The cruise director did a GREAT JOB as did the entire staff on the Enchantment! We will definitely sail Royally again in the future.

Enchantment of a deal

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: May 18, 2015

We greatly enjoyed our trip through Royal Caribbean. My fiancee is a Gold Member and loves this cruise line. I have traveled through Carnival in the past, and felt like it was very comparable if not better. I loved the service we received throughout the cruise. We had great attendants, and the activities and ports were great. We really enjoyed Coco Cay the best just because we love beaches, and it was so beautiful. I wanted to see Nassau and Atlantis, but felt underwhelmed since it rained and it was very touristy. We couldn't do much in Atlantis since we didn't buy a day pass. Our room was very clean, and the dinner was fabulous. We dined at Chops Grille and loved it! We purchased the alcohol drink package and felt like since we don't drink alcohol a lot we would not do it again since we didn't get our money's worth. Overall, we enjoyed our cruise and want to go back again.

Left hand got stun by a bee before set off. Swelling during the whole journey. Was able to get good treatment in the medical center and the price was reasonable. Most waiters and waitress and bartenders are very nice, bringing me ice for my hand.

Food was good, entertainment was good. Nassau and Cococay were great

First Cruise

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

Stateroom was kept very clean during our cruise by staff. Towel animals left in the room everyday. Entertainment was very good. Done shipping on the island was not what was expected. Especially shopping for jewelry. Evening dinners were fantastic and the servers went out of their way to make sure the food was to our liking. Onboard shopping can get crowded. Overall the cruise was very good.

Fun Cruise!

Although I've been on bigger and newer ships, this was the perfect, short getaway! I have to say the crew was so friendly and eager to please, and the food and entertainment was great! Also there was quite a lively crowd even all of us "Baby Boomers" cut loose and had alot of fun!

Great trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: May 11, 2015

We had a wonderful time.  The entertainment was okay.  The cruise director was not very funny.  I found him to be rude at times.  The food was good.  Enjoyed the islands and beverage package well worth it.  Also, if you can carry your own bags off the ship at the end of your trip.  It will save you hours.  Didn't know this till we got there.  Royal Caribbean allows one bottle of wine per person as long as you carry it on in your carry on bags.   Remember room services are free.  You should tip the person delivering to your room.  My time dining is great.  Who wants to eat at 5:30 or 8:00?  I need to have some flex time.  Also, good to re-book for your next cruise.  Best price and we got 100.00 for signing up on the cruise we were on and 100.00 credit to our next cruise.

Popular tips for Enchantment of the Seas.


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!

Third Mate

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...
