Enchantment of the Seas

October 2016 - Enchantment of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Nice to be on a less-crowded cruise, but communications, entertainment, and staff disappointing

When you leave Miami as Hurricane Matthew is hitting the Florida coast, your 2800 passenger ship leaves with 1600 passengers.  It was nice to be on a less-crowded ship.

 

Disappointments:

 

- We were told by email that we couldn't check in until 5 pm.  Reality was that we checked in fine at 3:30 pm.

 

- We didn't know that we were skipping Coco Cay until we go on board.  That seems unfair.

 

- I got targeted by the comedian during the opening show -- made fun of my laugh, my clothes, even my name.  ("Mark? Did he just bark at me?"). What's the point of having a comedian attack people on vacation?  He was stupid and not funny, but it still ruined my night on vacation.  Why hire that kind of comedian for a cruise ship?

 

- The staff were clearly unhappy with the smaller crowds.  The dining room staff were bored.  I had a bar staff tell me that my wife and I that we were "losers" for doing so poorly on trivia.
