This was our first cruise on the Enchantment. We had done two Freedom cruises late last year. While those were fine cruises, we wanted to go for a longer than 7 day cruise on a smaller ship. We had done this before on the Grandeur and like it very much. There is a lot more 'energy' on the larger ships, but sometimes we just want cruise days and a slower pace. The Enchantment did not disappoint us.....and we got our favorite captain too....Captain Rob. Not that there aren't plenty of things to do on the Enchantment, it is just a smaller ship with an extremely friendly crew which seems to make a more intimate ship.

Jon Blair, Cruise Director and his wife Katrina, Activities Manager, came over with Captain Rob from the Grandeur which was a real plus. They really kept things rolling along. The best entertainment for us were Your Three Tenors. They were great! Our waiters, Boston and Wilder were friendly, funny and gave us great service. If you get Boston as your waiter, ask him More about his 'chickens'. Edison, our stateroom attendant, not only made up our room 'magically', but he even stopped in a couple of times to check on us to make sure everything was in place and ask if we needed anything. It was a very nice touch.

We could really say this was a very pleasant cruise for us. Less

Cabin review: Inside Stateroom

Our interior cabin was small, but adequate with plenty of storage. We still had to wrestle a bit with the shower curtain. That is to be expected on the older ships. Our older 13 inch TV was cutting in and out, but Edison fixed that the first night for us. I would recommend that the beds be separated so there is a space to get down the middle. Otherwise it is a climb out of bed routine. There was a bit of noise from time to time as were right by a service entrance. It was not a big deal to us, but a light sleeper may not like it.

Port and Shore Excursions

One of our favorite ports. You can't go wrong in the Conch Republic. We did a peddi-cab ride to the southern point followed by shopping and Sloppy Joes.

Nassau is OK, but it is not one of our favorite ports. We walked the shopping area, went to Senor Frogs for a drink and hopped back on the ship. We had done an island tour on a previous visit.

We did the NASA tour. The tour, to our surprise, can take more time than allotted. The space center and displays cover a wide area.
