Ship Facts: Enchantment of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Enchantment of the Seas Deck Plans

Haven't done a cruise for 2 years,we wanted to go again. Since RCI was now in Baltimore, we researched, and Enchantment of the Seas was the ship of choice Our first cruise was on Enchantment, so we were good to go with a 8 day/ 7 night for $599 each. Baltimore has got to be the smoothest departure. You drop your luggage at the ship, then park maybe 100 yards away, and that is it. For us, no airlines, no shuttles, just park and walk.

The ship was as remembered, and we utalzied the Solarium asap. After dinner we enjoyed the outdoor hot tub passing under the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel. The arrival 2 days later in Port Canaveral was hectic, as we waited nearly an hour for a 'handicapped' guest who was on our shuttle bus to Disney. He never showed. I am pretty certain the bus would not have waited for anyone else.

Upon the return, we spent the 2 days at Nassau and CoCoCay. We had a medical emergency upon porting at Nassau, and had to wait to disembark until the ambulance left. I actually felt bad for the Atlantic waterpark package guests having a shorter day and a 430 pm close. We chose the Dolphin Encoutner/Swim and had a later appointment, so no worries there.

Atlantis: You can't make money with only $25/$100/$500 black jack tables. With 3 ships in port, put the $5/$10 tables out and fill them up. Yes, they were all empty. The day was great, as was the CoCoCay weather.

The ship had a beautiful day at sea hitting 80' heading home, and the deck was packed. The last full day at sea was cold and rainy, but thats what the Solarium is for, and the adults only rule was enforced. A Christmas Eve debarking was smooth and fast.

Lost of live entertainment, including the debut of "Can't Stop the Rock", and Christmas Carols in the Centrium, and a good holiday festive vibe. The night we left Coco Cay, yet another medical mishap, we diverted to Freeport to dock with a medical tug to evacuate someone else. We were able to watch everything from Chops, with is 'outstanding meat'.

Everything including the dining room, the casino, and Schooners was as expected and enjoyed. This is a great ship for the winter months. The cruise was great, and the medical emergencies were caused by ill-prepared travelers, not the ship. I would love to sail out of Baltimore again. This ship was heading in for a springtime rehab, yet they were still painting and cleaning non-stop. I like that.
