We love the Enchantment. This was our third cruise on her and cannot wait to book another one. Maybe that is why we did not find any fault with this cruise. Embarkation was a breeze, on the ship within 30 minutes. Our rooms were ready ... Read more

This was our first cruise to celebrate both my wife's birthday and our anniversary. First, we spent some time reading the reviews of this ship and offerings and feel that the reviews are obviously sided to the perception of the reviewers. ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise and 4th Royal Caribbean cruise. This was our first mega-ship and I guess I was expecting a little more. The rooms are showing some age, but they were very clean. The bed was rock-hard and the couch was a little ... Read more

We did this same cruise in the winter of 2015 -- unfortunately we missed Coco Cay last year because of high winds and had two days in Nassau. Swore I wouldn't do it again, but the price was good and the Port Canaveral terminal is so easy ... Read more

Preface: I took the cruise on Freedom of the Seas because I was part of a group that had booked roughly half of the ship. We had our own entertainment and activities, so I have no feedback for ship-sponsored events in this review. This ... Read more

Overall we had a very positive experience on this cruise. 90% of the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Embarkation and disembarkation were very well organized. The only time the ship felt crowded was getting into the tender to ... Read more

We are a couple in our 50s. This was our 20th cruise, 3rd time on Enchantment. We live near Port Canaveral so this is a convenient getaway for us. This was our second trip on Enchantment over the span of a month. The weather was ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise. There were 9 of us traveling together from the age ranges of mid-60's down to 8 years old. Getting on the ship was a breeze - we had a suite and we were able to go through the lines very fast. The first day was an ... Read more

We stayed at the Hampton Inn in Cocoa Beach and participated in the parking voucher program with the port parking. A good way to get a reduced rate on port parking. See website for more details... Great cruise!!! This was our third ... Read more

Fun little getaway. Nice to get out of the snow and 10 degree weather in Pittsburgh in February for low 70s sun in the Bahamas. The ocean is cold, but bearable for small periods of time. Ship is well maintained, respectable ... Read more

This was my second time cruising on the Enchantment and I enjoyed both times. We got to the pier at about 2p.m. and practically walked right on the ship. The entertainment director was not as upbeat as on other RC cruises I have been on ... Read more

I was concerned after reading some reviews of this ship that it might be dirty or outdated but after boarding I found everything to be in just about perfect condition. The decorations and layout of the ship were very impressive. We had an ... Read more

This was our 11th cruise on RC. Our first cruise was on Enchantment in 2002, so we were excited to see how the ship had changed since its expansion and subsequent years of service. This was also our first 4-night trip, so we were curious ... Read more

This was our 10th cruise and our second cruise on the Enchantment of the Seas, a smaller ship than others we have sailed on. We like the size, as it is easy to get around using the stairs. The musical entertainment was top-notch and much ... Read more

This was the first cruise that we have ever taken. My wife and I and our two 19 year old children. We had 2 cabins next to each other, each with a balcony. We don't have anything to compare the cruise to so this is just a listing of what ... Read more

Had a fantastic time on the Freedom of the Seas! A beautiful ship. We had a balcony room once again. The weather this time was not our friend as it was last year on the Jewel from San Juan. I really enjoyed the different set up on this ... Read more

We cruised Freedom of the Seas on the eastern Caribbean itinerary, sailing January 24th, 2016. I’ve waited a bit to write a review because we sensed some cut backs on the Freedom cruise and were cruising Allure of the Seas a few ... Read more

We stayed at the SpringHill Suites Orlando airport and took their shuttle to Port Canaveral for $40 each round trip. It took longer than anticipated because they stopped at 4 hotels and then dropped off passengers at 3-4 ships. But we ... Read more

My wife and I sailed the same itinerary as we did in 2013 because we had a great time then and figured it would be just as good this time around. However, overall it was a disappointment. The ship itself is very nice, well-maintained, ... Read more

This is about what I expected (I had LOW expectations) and the weather did not cooperate and yes I know the cruise line can't control the weather. However, they really need to have a plan B for trips when the private island stop cannot be ... Read more

We are a couple in our 50s and this was our 19th cruise, 7th with RCCL, and 2nd time on this ship. We booked this as a quick getaway to feed our cruising addiction between longer booked cruises. We live close to the port and so just ... Read more
