This was our third cruise, and our second to the Carribean. The first was on the Majesty of the Seas. Both ships are beautiful. We went on this cruise as a celebration of a 75 birthday of a family member. We were treated with such flair in the dining room and the waiter had a lot of work to do taking care of 18 people at once. He was superb! Even though he did not work the morning shift, he was always there making sure we were taken good care of. The shows on the ship were so good, we missed one when the ship was a little rocky from the seas. That was a different experience for us but we faired really well. Everything was kept immaculate. Our little towel animals each night was a treat, we found ourselves wandering each night what it would be. The Windjammer was always a great experience. It was so hard to choose what to eat, the soups were delicious and all of the different kinds of foods offered especially ones from different countries. That made it kind of fun and exciting to even go for lunch wondering what you would get today. The midnight buffets were exquisite and beautiful. You hated to eat anything and mess up the presentation. Ice sculptors were beautiful too. Formal night was beautiful, I always think people who eat in the dining room should dress because the waiters work so hard, the food is prepared so nicely and you have white table cloths and napkins. You show some respect to those who work so hard to make your vacation fun and relaxing. I was certainly a week to remember.

Pros: The atmosphere, being pampered, and the food.

Cons: A trip on Grand Cayman island

Recommends Enchantment of the Seas? Yes!

George Town, Grand Cayman
We took the Best of Cayman tour (5 hrs.). The guide was great in his knowledge of the island, however he rushed the tour because he had two tours on the same bus and he had a deadline to meet for the other tour. We were rushed through the botanical gardens and he even went ahead when several of us had to use the rest room. At Pedros Castle, we hardly had time to see it all. We were then rushed over to the place where we boarded a boat and traveled a long way to see the sting rays. The brochure said we would be in shallow water (which meant to me maybe knee deep), however when we got there it was shoulder deep. Not anything like we expected. During all of this time there was no time for lunch. We did not get back in town in time to be able to shop. The tour took all day and we got back in time to catch the tender at 3:30. The whole trip was not worth $109.00 per person and was not as informative as expected. Would not do this again.
Don't Miss: Turtle farm and Hell. We did this our last trip and enjoyed it very much.
