This was our second cruise, our first time with Royal Caribbean and the first time cruising with our daughter who is 8 years old. We were also traveling with my sister and brother-in-law and my mom and stepfather.

Embarkation from Baltimore is a treat. We arrived at the cruise port at 10:45 and we were onboard by 11:30.

Our staterooms were available just shortly after 1:00. Our stateroom was as expected, very clean, and there was tons of storage space. A tip for future cruisers would be to bring extra clothes hangers. We brought several cheap dollar store wire hangers which worked out excellent. The window in our room was very large. Even with the pullman bed down we had enough space for the three of us. We had a connecting stateroom with my sister and brother-in-law which was very handy for playing games or chatting after our daughter had gone to bed.

Service throughout this ship is exceptional! All crew members greeted us with a smile. There was More always a server in the Windjammer ready to help carry drinks to a table, help find an empty table, or get your drinks for you. In the main Dining room our daughter was treated like a princess every night by our waiter and assistant waiter as well as the head waiter. Any reservations I had bringing her with us on this cruise were eased the very first evening. Our assistant waiter, Dondon, was phenomenal and played a key factor in making our trip amazing.

I very much enjoyed the size of this ship. It was refreshing to be able to get from forward to aft without having to pack a snack! Although it is an older ship it is spotlessly clean. The public areas are very inviting with ocean views everywhere.

We never had a problem finding a chair on the pool deck. If you wanted to be near the action you could be and there were plenty of areas to relax on the outer decks if you were wanting some quiet time.

There were several activities taking place on the sea days. Our cruise director Mitch did a fantastic job.

Debarkation was well organized, it was easy to find our luggage in the terminal and the customs officers were pleasant and smiling (WOW).

Overall, if you are looking for a enjoyable cruise on a medium sized ship I highly recommend Enchantment. It was a pleasure driving to the cruise port (an easy drive from Ontario) and not having to worry about baggage restrictions and security lines at the airport.

We will definitely cruise with Royal Caribbean again and would absolutely consider Enchantment when planning our next cruise. Less
