We expected more from Royal Caribbean....

Sail Date: August 2013
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Port Canaveral

We have cruised with Carnival five times. However, we decided to splurge and cruise with Royal Caribbean in August 2013! We couldn't keep from comparing the 5 Carnival cruises we sailed to Royal Caribbean. I expected Royal Caribbean would blow Carnival "out of the water".

The ship (Enchantment of the Seas) appeared old when we boarded. We were pleased when we saw the interior of the ship though. The ship had been refurbished in 2005.

We had a large interior stateroom #8089. It was one of the last cabins available on an upper deck. The cabin seemed larger than Carnival cabins. Yay! Our cabin steward, Charlie was very nice. He seemed to work nonstop.

The dining room was very nice, the staff was excellent, the entertainment was .....well, entertaining! There were two problems that may not effect most cruisers, but it was problematic for my crew. Their teen program was not organized and the activities included playing BINGO. This left teens to amuse themselves More for the most part (yikes)! The other issue was the quality and quantity of food. There were long lines and angry passengers that resembled cows being herded. The quality sadly included the dining room as well. We were told by several veteran Royal Caribbean cruisers that this was not typical of most Royal Caribbean cruises. I wish we had booked one of the other ships...... Less

The island was nice, but again we felt like we were being herded.
