Surprisingly Outstanding

By the title of the review, you might misunderstand what I was trying to say. This was the first time I went on a cruise and I went with my work team as a part of a thank you gift from our boss. The ship was pretty ...

Pleasantly surprised with the charm of this little ship.

Embarkation was super easy because of the option to check in with expedited check in. I highly recommend taking advantage of it any time it is offered. I had heard so many things, good and bad, about ...

Ship overall – it is showing it’s age. Rust on the outside, the banisters in the pool area need refinishing as they are chipped and worn. Carpets did not seem to be stained and had normal wear and tear. The ...

A lot of disappointments

This is my 3rd cruise and all 3 have been with Royal Caribbean. Unfortunately this one left a bad mark and the way things were handled more or less ruined my vacation for me and left me questioning if I’ll ever ...

Staff made Christmas Cruise. Ship not so much.

This was a family vacation consisting of parents (54 & 53) and daughters (20 & 16). The primary reason for picking this cruise was that it fit a compressed holiday schedule. This was our eighth cruise (4 RCI, 3 ...

Old and rusty ship. We called it The Rust Bucket!

This was a 5 day cruise out of Galveston. We had a balcony on the 8th floor. The rooms really need to be updated and renovated. The ship has so much rust in it's exterior that it just looks bad. This is our first ...

We chose this cruise/ship because we can drive to Galveston & the price was right. We've cruised with Royal Caribbean (RCI) many times before, including this ship. This was not a highlight for us. The ship badly ...

Decent for a quick, cheap getaway

We booked this cruise because I had RC Visa points I needed to use, so we got a 4-day cruise for two and had to pay only taxes and port fees. I bought our beverage packages during the Black Friday sale and felt they ...

EXCELLENT FOOD !

We used an internet online service, and found just an amazingly low price -- "an offer we couldn't refuse." Of course there were a few downfalls. The ship was older (The Enchantment is over 20 years old); our ...

(I've been cruising for 34 years, been on 50+ cruises) To be honest, I would not have chosen this particular ship for my family just because of the age of the ship and lack of certain "kid-friendly" amenities BUT a ...
