4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 09, 2015
Ship: Enchantment of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 2134
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The cruise was relatively short (Mon-Fri) and had only one notable stop, Nassau.  A stop at Coco Cay was canceled due to high winds that eliminated tendering to shore.  The ship is "tired."  The décor is old and worn and a bit out of date.  Staff are courteous if not exuberantly friendly, except for dining room staff, who seemed to "get the idea..."  Food was excellent!  Lots of choices and well prepared.  Activities on board were modest, i.e., some trivia-type games, poolside competitions, evening music and shows.  The shows were good and mercifully held to one hour.  Movies on board were not appealing to most adults and were not of recent vintage.  The only "theater" I was aware of was outdoors by the pool--not attractive for cool February weather.  Overall, if you have a demanding job or otherwise stressful life, this was a good cruise to just sit back and relax, enjoy a few drinks and good food, and soak up the sun at poolside.  However, the beds were so bad, you are not likely to catch up on restful sleep!

Some friendlier and more accommodating than others.

It's old and needs updating.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5

Terrible beds, and there was an awful smell in the hallway on approach to the cabin. Bath was adequate, but the small sink and countertop made it difficult to avoid soaking the floor.

Ship Tip

Bring a good book and be prepared to relax and eat well. Do NOT expect to be busy!

5 out of 5
Easy access and lots of parking (at reasonable rates) close to the ship.
Canceled due to weather.

Local guide for tour of the city and Atlantis were worthwhile, but Atlantis definitely not worth any special charges that some incurred.
