Recommends Enchantment of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food was good with good presentation; expected more variety; staff "entertainment" below expectations for their dinner parades.
Service and Staff
Most staff friendly.
Children's Programs
First night or two had trouble finding the teen activities - had to give up and return to room - staff was unaware wrong signs had been posted. Once we found "them" (two different age categories), they had fun and met new friends.
Ship Quality
The size of the ship was grand! Easy access to everything. Deck plans near elevators for quick references. We had an adjoining balcony room for 3 teens, both rooms had good floorplan for both adults and teens. Choice of either sofa bed or ceiling bunk - tried both! Lots of closet/storage space. Could have used more "hooks" on the walls to hang more items. No robes furnished in this category. Pool towels furnished in room and clean dry ones always available for exchange at the pools.
Cabin / Stateroom
See above
Variety for varying age groups.
Key West, Florida
Snorkel excursion was run very well, fun and safe. I was disappointed in the lack of fish and coral for the area.
Cozumel, Mexico
Visited the ruins. Small bus transported us there - guides were good. Bug spray was furnished. Be prepared for rain downpours! (Not cold - just wet!)
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Privately owned island - we pre-purchased the kayak adventure - disappointed that we only went to a point at the end of the island and then straight back after a brief landing on a beach. Tour guide was great; explained how to kayak and was great at stopping along the way to show us conchs, starfish, stingrays etc.; good knowledge of area.
Don't Miss: rented snorkel equipment on our own at their (RCCL's) shack and let kids snorkel in the bay. Check out the iguanas that come right up to you in the hammocks!
