Staterooms onboard are decorated in shades of white, gold and teal and feature strange, faux-suede wall panels. All feature twin beds that can convert to queens.
Inside cabins on Enchantment of the Seas now come in three types, thanks to the ship's 2005 elongation: Family Interior Staterooms, new since the refurb and offering more space for passengers with children (260 square feet); Large Interior Staterooms (145 square feet); and Interior Staterooms (137 square feet). Rooms with windows include Family Oceanview Staterooms (293 square feet) and Large Oceanview Staterooms (152 square feet). All inside and outside standard cabins offer a sitting area, a vanity and a private bathroom. Many -- including the family cabins -- feature Pullman beds for extra guests.
Cabins also include small TV's, each with 28 channels like CNN, Spanish channels, and various movie and music channels. There was plenty of closet and drawer space, but in my oceanview cabin, the clicking together of the unused hangers woke me up at night on several occasions until I removed them from the bar in the closet. There were also two end tables, a glass coffee table, a couch, a desk chair, reading lamps, two 230-volt European plugs, two 120-volt U.S. plugs and a surplus of mirrors. Safes can be found in the vanity cupboards. Various snacks, soda and bottled water are stacked on top of the vanity -- something that seems a bit strange since space is at a premium -- and are available for purchase, but beware of their high cost.
Superior Oceanview Staterooms offer their own balconies. Each clocks in at between 190 and 195 square feet with a 36- to 41-square-foot balcony. Each balcony has two chairs and a small table. Mini-bars are also available.
Bathrooms are standard with shower-only options and clingy shower curtains, removable shower heads and shampoo/body wash dispensers. The only other toiletries offered are bars of soap for hand washing. Decor is fairly plain with cream and peach tones.
Suites on Enchantment offer the most variety with five different categories. Junior Suites are 248 square feet with 62-square-foot balconies. Sofa beds sleep additional passengers. Grand Suites, which are 349 square feet and have 107-square-foot balconies, offer separate living areas. Royal Family Suites, 487 square feet with 58-square-foot balconies, feature two bedrooms, two bathrooms and separate living areas with sofa beds. Owner's Suites are the next step up, offering 511 square feet of space with 107 square-foot balconies. Finally, the ship's Royal Suites offer the same amenities as the other suites, plus private, in-cabin hot tubs and baby grand pianos.
All suites have bathrooms that include bathtubs. Additionally, passengers booked in suites (excluding Junior Suites) receive priority check-in, access to the Concierge Club onboard lounge, priority pool deck and theater seating, bathrobes, luggage valet service and complimentary pressing service on formal night.
The cabin was comfortable, had plenty of storage cabinets and closet space, and the large window provided plenty of light as well as sightseeing. It was showing it's age, though. The mattress was very hard, and two of the pillows needed replacing. The bed was not high...continue
