We were bumped over to the Majesty of the Seas after our Empress of the Seas sailing was cancelled. We were somewhat concerned about our experience on the Majesty, given the poor reviews here and elsewhere. It was overall a positive ... Read more

Chose this first cruise after dry dock for a short getaway and the private island and Key West R&R. The ship is a nice size. Having an aft balcony I missed aft elevators but the walk is doable and counters the food consumption. There ... Read more

This was our first cruise with the whole family, so we wanted it to be short and not too expensive. Several members of the family live in Orlando, so Port Canaveral was the obvious choice. Boarding was a breeze. Barely took 20 minutes. ... Read more

Our cruise with Empress of the Seas got cancelled so we were given the option to board with this ship and RC was not very accommodating about booking us a hotel for the night that we would be missing out on from our original itinerary. We ... Read more

We hadn't been on a cruise for 8 years. So, we figured it was time. We decided on a 3-day cruise to the Bahamas. There are 3 cruise lines out of Port Canaveral. Our daughter had been on Carnival. We didn't want to do a Disney cruise ... Read more

I will have to think hard before choosing Royal Caribbean in the future. My wife and I have been on 27 cruises (13 on Royal Caribbean where we have Diamond status ), we were not happy on the Enchantment of the Seas. The ship is definitely ... Read more

This cruise was average at best. With a few exceptions the food was tasty but nothing particularly special. There is food available nearly around the clock, you just have to find what is open - there is a daily schedule provided of ALL ... Read more

From what we heard and read prior to booking and sailing about the Enchantment _ vs what we experienced, we are glad we picked and went on this cruise. We have done 5 or 6 Royal Caribbean cruises, all larger ships, and predominately great ... Read more
