Helpful Vote

4 out of 5

Pleasant vacation

Sail Date: July 14, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

This was my first cruise, and I had few complaints about the ship or the offerings provided. The ship was comfortable, convenient and attractive. My only complaints about the ship were uneven air conditioning that left some areas too cold, and no attactive quiet space to escape the general nosie and activity (the library is open to the main atrium, and, outdoors, deck 5 is all business).

Pros: easy, efficient, plenty to do, good entertainment and good food, wonderful crew

Cons: noisy, too much air conditioning at times, cold bread , ran out of written material at classes

Recommends Enchantment of the Seas? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Being forward on the ship did expose us to some un anticipated noise: anchor dropping (or other docking related sounds), and waves crashing on the hull.
Ship Quality
Service and Staff
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful
Food and Dining
Overall, the food was quite good. There was plenty of variety, and even the vegetarians in our group had choices. Of course, you can get something toeat almost 24 hours a day. There are only two restaurants without extra charges, but that was plenty for me, given all the options available at each one.
Impressive variety and quite respectable level of talent over the course of the week.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Pretty, walkable town with many sites of interest including museums, historic sites, parks, interesting buildings.
Don't Miss: Maritime Museum
Bar Harbor, Maine
Charming, walkable town with an excellent, free bus service, interesting shops and restaurants.
Don't Miss: Acadia National Park
Saint John, New Brunswick

Don't Miss: Bay of Fundy, especially if you can catch it at high or low tide, which we did not.
Boston, Massachusetts
American History 101 at your fingertips. When humgry, Mike's Pastries satisfies.
Don't Miss: Freedom Trail, and the North End
Portland, Maine

Don't Miss: didn't find it
