Enchantment of the Seas Cruise Review by Alfcrasher: First Timers
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Canada & New England
My wife & I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary in May. This was our anniversary gift to ourselves. We left Baltimore on Sept. 22, 2011 and sailed to Portland, ME, Bar Harbor, ME, St. John - Fundy Canada, Over to Halifax, N.S., down to Boston, MA & then to Baltimore, MD
Capt. Gus was GREAT along with the rest of the crew & staff. Our stateroom steward Alvin & a girl in the Windjammer - Sophia went up & above their duties for us.
We like to do "Hop On - Hop Off" tours, on Royal Caribbean website & the woman at the Excursions Desk said there went any for Boston. We got off the ship, saw information & asked about them. Boston has them she told us & told us where to go to find them. We paid $50.00 for both of us & got to choose 1 of 5 free side trips while on the Hop On - Hop Off. Great value I think.
Other that, I think we had a GREAT time. I'll travel on The Enchantment of the Sea again & with Royal Caribbean Less

Cabin review: G3648 Large Ocean View Stateroom
We had a outside cabin. Great view of everything. Windows dirty on the outside, don't plan to take pictures thru windows. If you are a large person, the showers are very narrow. GREAT room steward !Read All Large Ocean View Stateroom (G) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
Got back to town, got off the bus, made a left & found I think it was O'Learys' Irish Pub. I sits back in off of the street. Small, maybe about 3-4 tables, the bar & Good food. And really cheap. Went into some shops & found a soda that is a blueberry soda. Umm good.
Not a lot of time to shop IF you get something to eat. And if the someone who works at one of the restaurant if you are with a cruise ship ? Make sure you don"t have anything on or showing that you ARE. Tell them NO, I think my wife & I wee taken across at the one we ate at. We paid almost $70.00 for 2 lobster rolls, $ unsweetened ice teas, & 2 desserts.
Other than that, we enjoyed Portland, what little time we spent there. We spent about 3 hors in Portland before our tour to Kennebunk.
