5 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Sail Date: February 04, 2008 Ship: Enchantment of the Seas Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 9 years ago
This was our first cruise so I have nothing for comparison. However, we found the ship to be very well maintained and generally found every aspect of it to be pleasant.
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
Food is very good and abundant in both the main dining room and the Windajmmer Buffet. We didn't try Chops but were told it was very good.
5 out of 5
Nigbtly entertainment was very good. There were a lot of things we would have liked to attend but we were so exhausted we couldn't stay awake for them. If you are going to do a tiring excursion and want to participate in a lot of things then I would recommend scheduling a lengthy nap before dinner!
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
We found all of the staff to be incredibly friendly and helpful.
5 out of 5
Inside of a couple of hours we knew our way around and we found all areas of the ship to be well kept and clean.
Cabin / Stateroom
3 out of 5
It's a stateroom on a ship, not a hotel room so don't expect a giant room. That said, the room was very comfortable, the bed was great and for the limited time we spent in the room it was more than adequate.
We did the jungle river tubing and mayan tomb excursion and enjoyed it very much. The Mayan tombs are not a large area and I wouldn't do this excursion if your primary goal is to see ruins. The river tubing on the other hand was gorgeous and the water was crystal clear. You definitely want to schedule an excursion at this port because there didn't seem to be much to see or do near the dock where the tender drops you.
Don't Miss: Jungle
We did a jungle hike and saw more Mayan ruins. The hike was interesting although the jungle is still recovering from Hurricane Wilma in 2005. Downtown Cozumel appears to have been rebuilt and is a very nice shopping and dining/bar area.
The tour of Hemmingway's home is worth seeing. I think that Key West must have the lowest ratio of residents to bars in the entire world - it seemed like there were 10 every block. The island has charm and its a nice place to walk around
Don't Miss: Hemmingway's home
