Pretty bad experience on this cruise.... Firstly the ship is pretty small, and a little dated. Ok where do i start, we were not treated well at all by our stateroom person, he was not ever polite, never greeted us period, and only said good morning to us last morning as we were leaving after i had conversation with him prior day about his lack of manners. The internet which is called "voom" is no such thing, we paid $15.99 a day for 4 days for what was sporadic internet with no ability to post any pictures or messages that took hours to upload, and my whatsapp which is only way to keep in touch with family would take an hour at a time to post message, when i complained their only solution was i should upgrade to $19.99 a day for better internet, huh? Its $4.00 a day on carnival and you cant provide quality for $15.99? I hate being nicke and dimed! So second morning we went for breakfast in dining room, we had shared table with 3 other couples, waiter recommended omelette with everything so we all agreed although some ordered preparedness different as well as varied sides, the waiter came back with 5 plates, not mine, and placed every plate with wrong person, then asked me what i ordered... Smh... Brought mine 5 minutes later, and after two bites i noticed long hair underneath my omelette and got nauseous immediately! I complained and got up right away to leave, manager was also upset and asked us to return that night for complimentary champagne, which we did but didnt return to eat there again, ate on deck 9 rest of cruise. Ok biggest disappointment was we booked cruise for rccl's private island cococay, that was the draw, we hurried off second day to get to island, we took the shuttle, and proceeded to beach, looking forward to long day of beach and bbq on beach, music, fun, etc, but after only 30 minutes we were forced out of water and told to leave island forced to leave like prisoners, that captain deemed water to rocky, i believe there were only 3 shuttles that made it on actually before having to leave, this same thing happened to us in january 2017 on majesty of the seas but we were not even allowed off on that trip, so we were pretty bummed, the captain thought it was good idea to head to nassau immediately, which was supposed to be 3rd day itinerary, we arrived at night in nassau, we did not get off as it was nighttime in nassau and its already pretty seedy during daytime, being hassled to braid hair or buy drugs. The entire trip was rocky, my wife got seasick on two of 4 days, i called rccl the day after i arrived back and complained, they said they would do investigation and get back to me in 3-5 days, its 8 days later and havent heard a word from them, prior to this cruise i had that royal would be my from now on preferred cruise line, we've done 12 cruises in last 3 years, on troyal, carnival, and norwegian, had great cruise oct 2017 on royal, but this one was horrible, not traveling on enchantment of the seas again, and think i'll give another spin on carnival next cruise!

I chose the cruise because I needed the points to advance to diamond. Overall the crew was very friendly and most helpful, especially my room stewardess, Carole. I did notice that the furniture in my cabin and in the public spaces looked worn, tired. I really think a refurbishment is in order. Our stay at Coco Cay was cut short (correctly) due to heavy ground swells that would have made tendering dangerous. The Captain made the right choice. we went right to Nassau and had an overnight. I highly recommend the All Access Tour. Well worth the cost. Areas included the engine control room and the bridge. A bit of walking and some stairs to climb but overall worth it. Pictures were allowed but not video and security was with us for the engine/bridge areas. The biggest negative (and it is the same with all cruise ships) is the cost of WiFi. To me it is a rip off. I suggest you contact your carrier (ATT, Verizon, etc.) to see what packages they might have to offer. Read Less

I don't know if it's the same on all the smaller ships of Royal Caribbean, but the quality of everything is definitely not the same as on their larger ships. Food: the food was not that great at all, it seemed like everything that was served in the main dinning room (My Fair Lady) was overcooked and lacked in flavor (with the exception of the steak on the last night of the cruise). Even the food in the Chopped Grille was nothing to boast about. Entertainment: The entertainment in the Centorium was okay. The entertainment in the Orpheum was not so great with the exception of the of the entertainer that was there on Wednesday night. Excursions: the beach excursions were great, quite frankly they were the only saving grace of this whole trip! Airport Transfer: We had to buy our airport transfer the day we got to Orlando. Spent 15 minutes just trying to find the Royal Caribbean kiosk so we could purchase the tickets. Embarkation was smooth after that. Disembarkation was a disaster. When we bought our ticket for the return airport transport, we were told that we would be off the ship by 830 and at the airport by 10 am. Needless to say that didn't happen. We had a number 2 tag which meant our group would be called to disembark at 830 am, they didn't call our group until 9 a.m. By the time we got off of the ship and through customs it was 930. We ended up having to spend another $150 to change our flight because there was no way we would make it on time. So instead of getting back home early (3 pm) we spent most of the day at the airport and didn't get home until 9 pm. We definitely will not be sailing on this ship again. Read Less
