Enchantment of the Seas

Sail Date: November 23, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

Overall, the purpose of the trip (having a relaxing Thanksgiving with family members) was accomplished. We spent most of our time in the Solarium. Bad weather precluded going to Cococay, so we had to spend two days in Nassau. We stayed on board the whole time as this was not our first trip, plus it was windy. We were disappointed in the theater entertainment as described in comments, but really enjoyed a band from the Philippines and the pianists. I enjoyed the Trivia games. The cruise director, Topi, was the star in my opinion. He was very talented and saved the shows. The 70's/80's night was great fun, as was the 50's/60's night. The food in the dining room was very good; the breakfast in the Windjammer was a little disappointing, but lunch was good. The wait staff in the dining room were wonderful. The so-called Anytime Dining is limited because we could not reserve between 6:30 and 7:30. Because we were a party of eight we settled for 6 pm. which worked well on the nights we went at that time. One night we reserved for 7:30 pm and it was a disaster. We were called then ignored. Finally one of our party had to call the Maitre D to get us to our table. We missed the theater show as a result.

The Crown and Anchor meeting was painful; I'm surprised they would subject all those returnees to such a drawn-out boring program.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was adequate, but when beds were placed together there was very limited leg room to maneuver around one side. One thing about Royal Caribbean, they provide lots of shelf and drawer space.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality Everything looked okay to me, but my daughter said the pool area could have been cleaner.
Destinations and Excursions Didn't go on any. They are over priced.
Onboard Activities
Enjoyed Trivia games.
Comedian and juggler extremely disappointing. Missed a show that had dancers, then bad weather cancelled the dancing part of the other show, so missed them. Singers were so-so. Cruise director was very talented. Enjoyed a band from the Philippines.
Service and Staff
Wait staff, Jaquelina and Ventura were wonderful, especially with the children. Dwayne was a good cabin steward.
Food and Dining
Dining room - very good
Breakfast in Windjammer - those scrambled eggs were awful.
Lunches were good.


The Solarium is the place to be, especially if you have an inside cabin. In the Windjammer, definitely find your table first.
Anytime dining, which we decided to use, is a misnomer because reservations could not be made between 6:30 and 7:30.
