Ship Facts: Enchantment of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Enchantment of the Seas Deck Plans
60th Birthday Cruise
We are a couple in our early sixties. This was our 15th cruise and our 3rd on Royal Caribbean. We flew into Baltimore the morning of the cruise and caught a taxi to the port. The taxi was $37.00. We were on the ship in about 30 minuues and our luggage was there when we finished lunch. We were in stateroom 2508 which was right at the front of the ship. The room had plenty of storage space and average room size. Only problem was the second day the seas were very high and it was very rough. No one is at fault, but a middle of the ship room would have been better. However,the rest of the trip was smooth sailing and no troubles. We have noticed lately that room stewards have more rooms and often they did not come to our room until after 2:00 PM. No chocolates on pillows, but often there were towel animals which we enjoyed.

While the Enchantment of the Seas needs some updating, it certainly was not bad. I really did not like the Atrium on this ship, but that is personal taste. There is only one dining room besides the Windjammer. We really missed the Anytime Dining. While we had RC Any Time dining, it was not what we were use to. You had to call and make a reservation for Any Time dining and it was just a section on the Main Dining Room. No choices. While others complain about the food, my husband and I found it to be very good. The beef was a little tough, but everything else was good. The last formal night lobster was a full,large lobster tail. We also really enjoyed the Surf and Turf night, also.

Activites on the ship were what is always on other ships. Somebody needs to come up with maybe something different. Trivia, Bingo, Casino, etc. get old.

Karaoke was outdated and only a few songs to choose from. However, the piano bar we truly enjoyed. The song and dance group was okay, not great, but good. The magician and the man who sang "Happy Days" was my favorite entertainment on this trip. The staff was good, but not too pushy.

We really enjoyed the ports on this trip.

We did the walk-off disembarkment. This went really smooth. We were in a taxi and on the way to the airport before 8:00 AM. Taxi back to the airport was $30.00.

All in all, it was a great trip. Like I said before the ports were amazing.
