Ship Facts: Enchantment of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Enchantment of the Seas Deck Plans
Great itinerary, small ship, lots of senior cruisers
Cruise was very relaxing with a unique itinerary, however the ship was smallest cruise ship we were ever on. We chose the cruise for the price and being able to drive to the port in Baltimore, MD. We were surprised to find that there wasn't much in the way of spa facilities (no sauna or steam) on board. The boat is due to go into dry dock sometime around the end of the year. The small boat size makes it very easy to navigate which is helpful for the more senior cruisers (majority over 70 on this cruise).

The staff were very helpful and friendly, always smiling.

The staterooms are showing there age and they need updated desperately. There was plenty of storage in the room, however the TV and bathrooms are very old and dated. Our stateroom was on the 4Th floor which made it convenient to the main dining on the same floor, however we got some chair noise from the casino directly above.

Early dining 6:00 p.m. is very limited, so make sure you choose it early. If you choose 'anytime' dining you will have to prepay your gratuities. We got stuck with late dining at 8:30 because of our late booking and didn't eat in the main dining room for dinner during the cruise because it was too late for us. The food in the buffet area had a great selection, but found it to be somewhat bland and not very hot. Breakfast in the main dining and buffet was very good and had eggs made to order fresh. Lunch in the main dining was good and they had a central salad bar available where you can get a salad made to order. We ate in Chops specialty four nights, well worth the $30 cover charge.

Entertainment was limited and most shows were well attended. Again due to the size of the ship, the main theater was small and seating is limited. Casino was very busy most nights, but save your money since the slots were tight and you'll only end up with a very expensive T-shirt to show for it. The music/bands on board were very subdued and average. Not much going on during the sea days, sleep in, spend some time on deck and drink... The nicest bar on the boat, Viking Bar (at the very top with great views), is a smoking bar and was not tolerable to be in very long, what a shame/waste.

If you want somewhere to vegetate for a week and don't need many modern amenities, then this cruise may work for you.
