Enchantment of the Seas

August 2014 - Enchantment of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Jam Packed

Cannot believe that ONE cabin steward can handle so many cabins in such an efficient manner. He was FANTASTIC. The dining room service was equally great. Never seen such courtesy on any cruise line. FOOD. What can I say other than it was fabulous! The variety, the quality, the presentation, the fact that it arrived in front of you HOT, etc.,etc.. Even the variety in the Windjammer was outstanding.

So what were the cons? DO NOT GET CABINS 8545, 8547, 8045, 8047, 8039 or 8539. The first four listed have a bar storeroom directly above and they are working ALL night dropping heavy boxes and wheeling noisy carts on a tile floor. NO SLEEP! The other two are adjacent to the stairs and if there are teenagers on board, watch out as they love to jump down four or five stairs at a time! Ship was jam packed so there was nothing that could be done. Unfortunately, we did not realize and chose the week before school started so there were 666 kids (that is correct) on board with little to ZERO parental control. All things being considered the staff did a remarkable job. I still rate RCCL as the best cruise line having traveled on them 8 times with Holland America a close second. This was our 18th cruise and three more planned this year.

Allure of the Seas

March 2013 - Allure of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas/Western Caribbean

The ship itself is fantastic...amazing! The food in the dining room was disappointing....too much beef and pork and nothing much for a vegetarian or vegan.... not enough fish choices and what there were on the whole were disappointing....no nice sauces with the standard items....the cod was dried up and horrible and the salmon not much better. The shrimp and lobster were rubbery. The mashed potato was excellent!!!! The food in the Windjammer was also disappointing but better than the dining room. Always beef or pork on the carvery...why not more turkey?...many people were complaining...there are so many people who do not eat red meat. . The shows were incredible. The service from all of the people on the ship was outstanding,,,they could not do enough The enforcement of the smoking policy was excellent....better than any other ship we have been on...however the smoking side of the pool deck was virtually empty while the other no smoking side was crowded.

astroh's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Lots to see if you take an independent tour and less expensive.
Enchantment of the Seas Enchantment of the Seas - Anytime dining was just fine. Make an appointment though ahead of time. The Windjammer tends to get a bit crowded but that was because of all the kids on board but the food there, and selection, was just as good as, and sometimes better, than the main restaurant especially at dinner.
