We recently sailed on the Enchantment of the Seas for the second time\, and all I can say is \"Wow!\". We knew the ship had been refurbished and stretched to make it larger\, but we had no idea what to expect. New restaurants\, a fantastic new pool area and a new nightclub made this second cruise feel like we were on a brand new ship. We really like Royal Caribbean's style\, service\, and innovative ships\, and the new Enchantment did not disappoint. Two new dining choices were really excellent. We had to wait all week to get one reservation at the new Chops Grille (we waited until day three to look into it-next time we'll do it right away). But\, it was worth the wait-the restaurant is beautiful and cozy\, the service was even better than the already great service the dining room staff usually delivers\, and the steaks and chops were outstanding\, comparable to any great steak house. The Windjammer buffet really isn't a \"buffet\" anymore\, now it's like a cool marketplace/food court with many more choices\, stations you can approach from all sides (so no endless line!). Very wide-open and airy feeling\, a huge step up from the typical ship buffet. We loved all the nightlife options. The shows were great but we really enjoyed the new latin club\, Boleros\, the Champagne Bar and the live music at Schooner's Pub. Felt like a totally different night out\, every single night. The new Seattle's Best coffee shop and the new Ben and Jerry's didn't hurt\, either! The new ship features are most apparent on the pool deck\, truly one of the most beautiful we've ever seen. The multi-color splash pool and suspension bridge are amazing\, but the best new element has to be the Oasis Bar. Right in the middle of the pool area\, the new bar has panoramic oceanviews (and barstools facing the ocean) and a new section behind the bar with a glass floor that fans out over the water. If you're not afraid of heights\, it's an amazing sight! Our stateroom was cozy and had some new features
