Ship Facts: Enchantment of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Enchantment of the Seas Deck Plans
Smooth Sailing
Departing from the port of Baltimore was the main draw for choosing our 5 night Bermuda cruise. Embarkation was a breeze and we were very pleased with our veranda cabin. It was spacious, comfortable, and had plenty of storage. It was a bit stark--no artwork, but it more than made up for that with it's good design. Other reviewers have said that the cabins were dated looking, but we didn't find this an issue. The housekeeping staff were amazing and there was no lag in having our cabin kept in apple pie order.

There are multiple options for dining and we mainly utilized the My Fair Lady dining room and the buffet style Windjammer. Both venues provided extensive options and the food was good. While the My Fair Lady room is attractive, it is a bit noisy. It's hard to hear a person on the other side of the table from you. However, the dining room staff is exemplary--prompt, courteous, and endlessly accommodating. A favorite spot to grab a little something, was the Cafe Latitudes which featured Ben & Jerry Ice Cream and Seattle's Best Coffee.

There was a very full slate of activities and entertaining nightly shows. We were very impressed with the wide range of live music in multiple venues. The closing musical review even had a live orchestra.

The only area I found somewhat disappointing was the fitness center which is very small and limited in the amount of equipment.

The enclosed Solarium is an attrative kid free zone which has a pool and two jacuzzis. It was a great shelter from the noise and activity of the main pool area.

The Enchantment of the Seas is one of the fleet's older ships, but it has a very contemporary interior due to the renovation in 2005 which added the very impressive and showy atrium section of the ship. The crew is constantly cleaning the public areas of the ship and everything is kept in very good order. There is one area of the ship that needs attention and that is a number of the elevator lobbies have noticeably stained carpeting. I'm puzzled why this isn't tended to because it detracts from the hard work of the staff.

We were very pleased with our first outing with Royal Caribbean and would not hesitate to book another of their ships. we compared notes with several passengers from a rival cruise line that was in port at the same time in Bermuda and were amazed at how different and unsatisfactory their experience was compared to ours. The Enchantment of the Seas is a good ship with an outstanding crew who work overtime to please.
