Six day Cruise on Enchantment of the Seas to Bermuda. Love it and loved a smaller ship. Got through the port with no problems. Stayed at the Best Western the night before just across the river. Great place to stay and had a nice dinner the night before with an a pretty nice breakfast that morning. We got a lovely surprise upgraded room from Deck 4 to 7! We were not expecting such a great beginning to our trip. This was our third trip on RCC. The balcony was great and we really enjoyed the room. I had read the negative reviews about this ship, didn't see anything of what they were talking about. Great service and food and the dancing and entertainment was great, better than the larger ship Freedom, which we had cruised two other times. This ship is more subdued and not as blingy. The port is lovely and taxi's are readily available. Snorkel Park is about a ten minute walk. I thought it was a nice little park. We ended up doing a night snorkel excursion there, that was excellent, slightly spendy, but pretty cool. Saw a wreck and quite a few fish and eels. Went to Horseshoe Bay Beach. Beautiful! Not really a snorkel beach though, the undertow was strong, but the water and beach were really nice. Only got three hours there on an excursion, really wanted more. Would have been worth getting a taxi and just going for the full day of the layover. Heard Tobacco Beach was the place to be for snorkeling, but didn't see that first hand. Overall, I would go back to Bermuda! Lovely island and people. Ate at the Frog and the Onion. Great food, spendy, but fun. We just had a great time and the ship was nice, I don't care what anybody says. Yes, it's not new, but I really enjoyed less people to shuffle around. Entertainment great and the cruise director and his wife, the events coordinator were great. Heard this ship was moving to Florida in the new year, it's too bad. Would go on it again in a heartbeat.

Cabin review: Large Ocean View Stateroom

F7558
Room 7558 Enchantment of the Seas. Nice room. New tv. Shower doors instead of curtain would've been nicer, but maybe with the refit of this ship. Loved it since it was a surprise upgrade from Deck 4. Plenty of closet space, more than what we needed.
