Surprised my husband for his 60th birthday for a 4 night cruise on the Enchantment of the Seas. We have cruised many times and know how to have a good time on cruise ships without going broke. This again, was a really great time! We wished that it were at least one night longer. The embarkation & disembarkation, crew, food, ports & excursions were more than I expected. We took in the shows at night which were also fun.

Yes, the ship is older and somewhat smaller than other ships, but don't let that hold you back. The crew is top notch and our experience in the My Fair Lady Dining Room was excellent! The wait staff was wonderful and the food was very good. We were on a 12 day cruise last fall on the Explorer of the Seas and were very disappointed in the quality of the food & wait staff. We didn't eat breakfast any day as we were still full from dinner the night before and our lunches were enjoyed at the ports. Hence, I cannot rate the Windjammer. It seemed like people were enjoying there meals in there.

Our stateroom was well maintained and average sized for a window room. Our attendant was terrific! Cruising is a great way to vacation and fun is what you yourself make of it! Go, enjoy & eat!

Deck 4. Oceanview room. Great stateroom attendant!

Port and Shore Excursions

Port

Great fun! We did the kayak/snorkel combination. The kayaking was great fun. We saw stingray, small sharks, conchs, and many other ocean life. Our guide was knowledgeable, patient & humorous.
The snorkeling on CocoCay is fun. There is an area where there are wreckage and other ocean debris things that the fish like to hang around. The water is clear and warm. It was worth the time and money. The food for lunch was really good! The crew pulls off a great meal with as many people as there was to serve. Another ship from Royal Caribbean was there with us. It is a large area and you cannot even tell two ships were there!

Snorkeling

We went to an area called Rainbow Reef. It was about a 40 minute boat ride to the area and we were given 1 hour to snorkel. It was fun, reasonable and the water was PERFECT!
