Review Summary

We recently sailed on the Enchantment of the Seas for the first time, and all I can say is "Wow!". We had no idea what to expect. First Star Restaurants, a fantastic Pool area and a Fabulous Nightclub made this cruise feel like we were Royalty. We really like Royal Caribbean's style, service, and innovative ships, and the Enchantment did not disappoint. Two new dining choices were really excellent. The Windjammer buffet really isn't a "buffet"; it's like a cool marketplace/food court with many choices, stations you can approach from all sides (so no endless line!). Very wide-open and airy feeling. 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 ocean views (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 cabin was cozy and the bed made us sleep like logs (nice and comfy). Lots of new storage elements have been added, easy to unpack and feel like there was a place for everything. Overall we have to say the ship was really impressive, the staff was wonderful, and even if you've sailed on the Enchantment before, she's worth a second look.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Jamaica was nice, but nothing could compare to the wonderful time aboard the Enchantment of the Sea. Could have stayed onboard to enjoy more of the atmosphere there!
Don't Miss: You don't want to miss taking the Tour of the Island - Absolutely Breath Taking.

George Town, Grand Cayman

I will be returning back to Georgetown to visit and will tell all to please do the same!
Don't Miss: White Sands Beach and the Fishing of Course!
