Great Cruise

Sail Date: March 2012
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Baltimore

Recently on the Enchantment of the Seas going to Key West and the Bahamas. Of course it is aways a cold start leaving from Baltimore in March, but it warmed up by the time we were off of South Carolina. Our itinerary was changed a few days before the cruise, but it wasn't a serious change. Rumor had it that they were having problems with one of the pods, so we went to Port Canaveral and were there longer than before. Then off to Coco Cay, which if you've been there before is not a big deal. It was an off and on rainy day, so we opted to stay on the ship and enjoy the fact that everyone else was at the beach. Lots of open chairs and places to nap or eat. Then to Nassau, again it was a little rainy, but as aways with a warm rain, no one really cares. Ahhh...Key West. We arrived a little later than expected and then since we'd been to Nassau, we needed to have custom's check us out. Not a big deal as we were off the ship by 11 a.m. and that day we were staying in Key West until More 10 pm anyway. Didn't do any tours in Key West, but we did re-live our tour from last year and visited the bars from the Pub Crawl. A great idea if you want to see a few bars in Key West. Word to the wise, if you want to get to Margaritaville you might not want to do the Pub Crawl as there isn't enough time to do all 4 bars and Margaritaville also.
Fantastic bartender in the Schooner Bar. Tishar is the best and always remembers what you are drinking day after day.
The food, although not as good as last year in April, it was sufficient even though it was not exciting at all. Somethings missing with Royal Caribbean these days. You can see they are cutting corners where food is concerned, but this won't change what cruise line we are going with. All the cruise lines are changing. People are still wasting food by getting way to much on their plates then throwing it away. I just don't get it!
All in all, the trip was great, just enough sun to get a tan and not a burn and although we won't do the Key West trip again, we will be looking for other places to visit in the future. Less

Cabin review: Enchantment of the Seas Large Interior Stateroom Deck 4 8547

Our cabin was #8547. It is a corner cabin that is located mid-ship, but it is very quiet most a lot of the time. We were always able to sleep in until 9:30 which on a ship is really good. It is an inside cabin, but we had a great cabin steward and he was always available if anything was needed. Enchantment is having a few problems and sometime our head wouldn't flush, but it always eventually did or our attendant would take care of things. All in all, I would get this cabin again if available.

Port and Shore Excursions


It is a nice place to visit to just lay on the beach and get into the water. This particular time, it was overcast and rainy so we didn't go over to the beach. Probably a good thing as most people got soaked when they got caught in the rain.

We didn't take an excursion this time, but last April we did take the Pub Crawl and found it to be a wonderful excursion and we did recommend it to our friends traveling on this cruise. They also loved the Pub Crawl. We just revisited the pubs and also Margaritaville to get more t-shirts.

The excursions are way to expensive for what you are getting at this port. We just walked about town and visited Senor Frog's for lunch

Cocoa Beach

(5)
It is just a bus ride to Ron Jon and Coco Beach, but it is quick and efficient and you can come back anytime you want of course up until 6 pm when the ship was leaving at 9 pm that night
