Ship Facts: Enchantment of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Enchantment of the Seas Deck Plans
A Great 3 day Getaway

DH, son, son's fiancé and I flew from ATL to MCO. We were greeted by our driver from Ace Luxury and were on our way to the port. Ace Luxury was well represented and worth the money for a private SUV for the round trip to/from the airport.

We arrived to the port around 11am. Since we were booked in a suite, and being D+ members, check in went quickly and we were onboard by 11:15, boarding just after the wedding parties.

DH and I had sailed on EOS in 2005. There were a lot of changes and we were pleasantly surprised at the new additions. Since the Windjammer wasn't open for lunch yet, we hung by the pool to people watch and have a quick drink. Once the Windjammer opened we had a quick bite and went back to the pool area to wait until 1:30 when the rooms opened.

We were delighted to see the FS. Walking in, there was a bathroom with shower to the left, a closet and vanity area to the right. Further in to the left was the second bedroom. This had no storage space - only the two night stands flanking the bed, and a tv. To the right was the master bedroom with private bathroom with full tub/shower. There were two closets with ample storage (too much for 3 nights) and a vanity with tv stand above it, queen bed and two night stands. There was a door to the balcony from this bedroom. Further in and across the master bedroom was the living room area. It was very well equipped with a flat screen tv, sofa, 5 chairs, and an in room ipad for use. There was also the standard college dorm type refrigerator, safe and coffee/tea service. From the living room, there were sliding glass doors on to the balcony.

The balcony was extra large. It wrapped from the master bedroom, which was a nicely placed table and chairs, around to the front of the living room. There were lounge chairs, extra chairs and a couple of side tables. It was where we spent most of our time, and had several of our meals.

The FS states for up to 8 people, but even for 3 days, 4 were very comfortable. I can't imagine more than 6 for an extended stay. It was awesome for us to be in one room, and I would book this suite again.

Food was okay in the MDR. We went once and were not overly impressed with the selections. We are used to the prime rib on first night 3 day cruises, but this was a different menu.

Room service was terrible. We had ordered 3 different times, and 3 different times, our order was not correct, this was after them repeating the order perfectly when called in.

Concierge lounge was awesome. Since we are DP+, we have experienced many concierge lounges, and this one was fantastic. The concierge actually took time to know each guest.

The Diamond Lounge was terrible. The staff were surly and could not be bothered to give a guest the time of day. They always appeared to be annoyed for having to be there, and didn't make us feel welcome.

Port of Nassau never changes. We did go to the updated straw market. We enjoyed the architecture of the building and although it is always the same products, it was much nicer to walk through then the old tent that replaced the original market.

Coco Cay is always a nice beach day. DH and I went to our favorite spot, while son and his fiancé went to barefoot beach. They saw starfish, chickens, an iguana, stingray and numerous species of fish. We didn't explore much, as we have been here many times, but we did take advantage of the on shore party sponsored by the concierge, at the waverunner hut. It was nice. There, we met the director of hotel/restaurants. Maybe it was the coco loco, but I had to tell him about the bad room service. He appeared sincere with his apologies and seemed to take it personally. I hope it makes a difference for future cruisers.

Since we didn't go to any of the shows, or play any games, I really can't comment. Son and fiancé went to one of the movies, and stated that there was hardly anyone in attendance.

Overall it was a nice cruise, a nice get away and a nice way to become closer to our future daughter in law. Would I do it again - you betcha!
