5 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 27, 2009
Ship: Enchantment of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago

The ship was nice-my balcony room needed new furniture-very dated and stained. The entertainment was very good as well as the food. I was surprised that the cost of drinks and the shops did not go down once we were in international waters with no tax or duty. Charging for Ben and Jerry Ice Cream seemed to be gouging guests with kids. When we could not go to Cozumel (Flu scare) we spent another day at sea-no reduced pricing-captive audience. Also, their specialty restaurant required $25/person to eat there which is outrageous, considering all the money you have spent already. They were very accommodating in changing our table away from the kitchen and giving us a much better location.

5 out of 5
Belize was very nice-excellent shops if you are looking for jade, and jewelry. Didn't get away from the shops to see other sites since it took 30 minutes to get to Belize from the ship and 30 minutes back-not much time to explore.

Key West was excellent-wish we could spend more time there. All of the places were nice-rented an electric car (highly recommend) and got to see some beaches and homes away from the main activity.

Pros: The ship layout was nice-the ports were very nice

Cons: The cost of on board items, drinks, shops expensive

Recommends Enchantment of the Seas? Yes!
