I was really looking forward to our Thanksgiving weekend cruise. Having been a loyal Carnival cruiser, we decided to switch it up and go with a smaller Royal ship. Big mistake! We are FREQUENT cruisers and have been on 25+ cruises so I know my way around a ship. This was by far the WORST. Everything from the cabin to the service was a disaster, and most of the food was dangerously under-cooked or inedible. The entertainment was barely noticeable and everyone seemed miserable working there-no smiling faces at all. The cruise director was barely visible and the staff was unorganized at best. The activities on the ship consisted of bingo and karaoke and that's about it really. The ship's photographers actually took many pictures of us where we had our eyes closed! The waiters forgot what we ordered and then said our desserts were coming even though we hadn't ordered any. Fake seafood in the ceviche---COME ON!!!! Lasagna tasted like it had some type of meat paste and like it came from a can of Chef Boyardee. Ports of call in the Bahamas were good, but there were no announcements that we heard as to when we could actually get off the ship. When diembarking there was no one to assist guests with where they were going and many people were confused. This is a real Skipper Gilligan! Read Less

This was a 50th anniversary celebration cruise for my entire family of 13 people. We chose this ship because of the sail date, departure and return port. That was the the first mistake. My wife and I have attained platinum status on Royal Caribbean. However the last time we were on a RCCL ship was in January of 2004. On that cruise the food was not so good, after this cruise, I don't think we will ever go on another Royal Caribbean ship. Let me tell you why. This last cruise was very disappointing. The food was mediocre at best, dining room service was extremely slow. Many of the niceties that we have come to expect on RCCL were missing. Such as days of the week on the carpet in the elevators, chocolate on the pillows, amenities in the bathroom, peppermill service in the dining room. The ship was in desperate need of maintenance. There was rust everywhere including the pool. My adult son was walking on the edge of the pool when he slipped and fell into the water. He cut his foot on one of the rust spots in the pool and required 5 stitches (RCCL provided the medial attention at No Charge). Because his foot was bleeding in the pool, the staff quickly closed and drained the pool. The artificial plants all over the ship were laden with dirt. The frame around the window in our cabin had missing screws and screws that were not seated properly, the door check on the cabin door had 6 screw holes but only 2 had screws in them (I have photos of the missing screws). The live music on the ship was painfully loud. When I questioned some of the senior people about these things, I got apologies. However things did not change. The shore excursion that we all went on was overpriced for what was given. There were people in our group from another ship from a different cruise line that paid less for the same tour. Shame on you Royal Caribbean. I hope someone at Royal Caribbean sees this review and initiates some changes. Read Less

First time on Royal Caribbean, last min deal. After extensively reading of reviews we new what it expect from a older smaller ship. Enjoyed the stops along with the food and Service in the MDR. The buffet layout was odd but worked fine after a couple of trips around it. Would like to have seen the silverware at the table and not by the plates, made it difficult if you did not have pockets. We took issue with a couple of items. Royal Caribbean web site after you are booked is not very helpful along with difficulties navigating to get better information. Our biggest concern was the volume music was played threw out the ship. It was impossible to have a conversation when the music was being played. It would be nice to be able to check your bill in your state room on the TV as other cruise lines have available. Read Less

We had a great time! Ship was clean, service was great. The food was very tasty and hot. Our my time dining was very good. We never had to wait. They let us have the same table every night and our waiter took excellent care of us. The duck was crispy and juicy. The lamb was tender and tasty. Susan did a great job with the entertainment as usual. I can't say enough good things about this cruise! I was on the oasis last cruise and the ship felt small at first , then I remembered why I love this ship. There is something to be said about this Quaint friendly staff and the people who frequent this weekend get away. It's all about recharging. I came home feeling relaxed and ready to take on my life again. Still my favorite ship. My only complaint is I wish they had of left Coco Cay alone. I miss the nature trails and all the chickens and iguanas and trees.. Oh well they paved paradise to put up a waterpark. Read Less

We’ve been quite “Loyal to Royal” for some time with a few “outside” cruises over several decades. Our next cruise is booked for April, but because we had a November business conference in Orlando, we decided to start with a short cruise to the Bahamas from Port Canaveral. What a disappointment... It wasn’t the size of the ship- we actually prefer smaller, more traditional vessels (ie Navigator) over mega ships (ie Allure). But this was a MESS! From the condition of the ship to the kind staff who simply didn’t seem to understand quality standards, this was by far our worst cruise experience. CABIN We were in a “Superior” Balcony room that was supposed to be a little larger than standard, but it was FAR from “superior.” We’ve had this type cabin before, and they were comfortable enough, but not on Enchantment. Hindsight tells us we should have gone to the hotel director (or whatever they’re called) for assistance, but a) we knew the ship was full and b) we were trying to convince ourselves everything was ok. Not recommended! If you’re miserable, you should let someone know. There were literally chunks missing from the walls, scratches, dings, peeling wallpaper, a drawer that fell out when opened, a sagging bed, rust and mold spots in the bathroom, and burned or dark stains on the sofa fabric. These issues only scratch the surface. We asked our steward for extra bed padding which we recited, and it did help, but it was still miserable. I don’t know why some cabins have the bed placed close to the door vs the balcony, but ours was like this, and we had about 2 feet maximum between the foot of the bed and the wall to navigate around in order to access the sitting area, dressing area and balcony. I’d had a knee procedure a few months ago, and I’m a small person, but wrenching my body around that space wrenched my knee into a state of pain worse than before the procedure. STEWARD While not the best or friendliest, he met our needs and was decent enough. Maybe we’ve been spoiled in the past, but he just didn’t meet standards of what we’ve come to expect from RC. DINING Other than a birthday dinner at Chef’s Table (which was quite nice, with a small, very eclectic group whom we really enjoyed), we had dinner at the same table every night in the MDR. The food was ok, but we don’t expect “outstanding” meals when cruising, even with specialty dining. We had the same mait’re de, head waiter and waiter every night, and they provided reliable and personalized service which was greatly appreciated, and so we “recognized” them our last night. But what a huge disappointment when afterwards they actually “solicited” us by asking for “good reviews with our names mentioned.” If you know RC, or perhaps all cruise lines, you know this is a grande faux pas, “NO NO.” In fact, we didn’t complete the RC post-cruise survey because we were concerned about possibly jeopardizing the jobs of people who sincerely worked very hard, awkward though they were. ENTERTAINMENT/POOLS/FACILITIES A lot of action on this sailing was in the casino, noticed when we passed through on the way to other venues. You expect casinos to be smoky, but this one needs help with ventilation. Had we wanted to gamble, there’s no way we could stay and play. Enchantment’s main entertainment takes place in the multi level, glass balconied Centrum where guests dance and sing the evening away with the performers. Of course the spirit of fun always includes disco 70s night, but these performers soooo over did it (we’re talking MAJOR bump/grind/grab self) that we were creeped out and left. We then tried reliable spots like the Schooner Bar and Bolero’s, but there we encountered some public coupling that was just a little too intimate for our comfort zone, and we’re no “prudes.” We believe we later saw some of these guests in the performance crew? We usually spend a lot of time on sea days around the pools and enjoy the music and dancing, but the volume or acoustics were just excessive on Enchantment. We went to the solarium pool and found it a little more tolerable, but not quite as clean as what you normally see on RC. PORTS/EXCURSIONS Having been to Nassau several times and loving Pearl Island, we tried a different RC excursion to Blue Lagoon and LOVED it. We chose the VIP version which included a beach section for adults only, a barbecue lunch, welcome drinks and OUTSTANDING service, making us finally feel we were on vacation. We spent $45 extra for a beach bed cabana, and it was DEFINITELY worth it! The water was calm, clear, and truly Bahamian Blue. GORGEOUS! On the other hand, compared to RC’s other private beaches on Labadee, Coco Cay was extremely lackluster and dull. My husband has had a 30 year career in the water park industry, so we weren’t looking for slides, inflatables, zip lines or pools, but the beach itself is just featureless. It’s no wonder RC is choosing to enhance it with a water park. Had it been open, we would still have chosen a beach clamshell rental only, but we did hear others complain about multiple delays on opening the new water park. (Note- park opening delays are standard). EMBARKATION/DEPARTURE I’m very sorry to say this was the best part of our “Enchanted” cruise. RC has embarkation down to precise science, and departure was organized and stress free. Unfortunately, this was the first, and hopefully ONLY time we were glad to de board! I wish we weren’t so negative, but we feel compelled to share our experience and perspective. Having sailed with RC many times, we’re certain others will have a much better cruise, and we’re sure our upcoming April cruise will be more similar to what we’ve experienced in the past. Maybe there are just times for some of us when things aren’t quite a match, or the experience just isn’t the same as before. Happy sailing! How sad to save our greatest compliments for embarking and departure. Read Less

Yes this is a pretty long review but wanted to be as well rounded as I could! We went for a wonderful cruise aboard the Enchantment of the Seas 5 days and 4 nights out of Port Canaveral. Were were in cabin 3927 which is an interior interior cabin (yes it was inside of the inside LOL). Never felt the ship even moving and it was dark and cool the way I like my bedroom. We were kept busy on the sea days and could always find something to do. The pools and hot tubs were never overly busy so we were able to swim at our leisure. Really enjoyed the solarium adults only pool area but there really were not many kids on board anyway. Loved the trivia contests with Connie from Argentina. Our wait staff at My Fair Lady were amazing so shout out to Wayne and Sinjin (hope I spelled it right. Our room steward was amazing and catered to all of our wants and needs. I made a special request for a fan before we got on the ship and they provided one for me as well as water and a extension cord for my CPAP machine.Enjoyed the musical shows very much and the adult late comedy show as well. Our cabin was small but comfy (yes the shower curtain does stick to your bootie because it is a small space but we were fresh and clean and that is all that mattered). We always saw someone cleaning and there was plenty of sanitizer to go around. The staff was very friendly and outgoing. The food in the Windjammer buffet was ok but nothing to write home about. I wish they had more beef options and everyday was the same thing. Would have been nice to spice it up and change some of the main dishes available. We had all our dinner meals at My Fair Lady but we used the upgrade option to filet mignon for a small extra fee. I enjoyed all my food but noticed most of the beef selections have the same "gravy" on it so it all kinda tasted the same. Yes people I'm a beef person but also had seafood pasta one night. I was also expecting some different options each evening for dessert but found the same ones each day which was a little disappointing. That being said our servers were amazing and I couldn't ask for any better service. On the first night I was eating dinner and got a very quick case of sea sickness which surprised me because I've never experienced that before. As soon as the main course was served it hit and I basically ran out of the restaurant leaving my poor daughter sitting there all alone and luckily made it to the cabin before I completely embarrassed myself. It was obvious I was missing in acting when the server came back. I was surprised when less than a half hour later there was a knock at my door. I struggled to make it to the door when it suddenly opened and there stood my daughter with two servers from the dining room. Without her asking they had brought two new entrees of Prime Rib and desserts for both of us directly to my stateroom!! I was overwhelmed with gratitude. What amazing service! The next evening when we went to the dining room two of the managers came to my table to ask how I was doing. With all of the people they see each day I was humbled that they remembered me. The third night at dinner we were eating when a person from a neighboring table was walking by and spilled a full glass of red wine all over my left side. I'm not the type of person to get mad and things happen. The guest actually offered to buy us a bottle of wine do to the accident (we don't drink but it was a nice offer). The staff stepped in immediately and helped me get cleaned up and gave me a ticket for three free items to be laundered so they got all the wine out of my clothes and it is a funny note to the trip. We enjoyed the shows very much and I want to let you know to catch the game shows (Love and Marriage and Music hits) as well as the belly flop contest. We laughed so much! We also caught two moviesSo now onto excursions. While in Nassau we bought the Aqua Adventure package at Atlantis. I'm and older person and have to admit I was disappointed when we found that the lazy river was closed for the day (the rapids are too rough for me) so we hung out in the pools most of the day and visited the beach which was beautiful. I have to say almost 300 dollars to hang out in a pool seemed excessive. I enjoyed walking through the hotel and aquarium. We had lunch (sliders and fries with two drinks) and it only cost 20.00 which amazed me. It's a lot of walking but it was beautiful. However, if you have any medical issues I wouldn't suggest the water park. Just take a taxi and visit the beach and stroll through the shops and casino for free. On the last day we visited Coco Cay. BEAUTIFUL is all I can say. I strongly suggest purchasing the clam shell and lounger package. It was 90 for two people but well worth it. They were located at the far end of the island and it was very very quiet. When you purchase the loungers you also get access to a tram which will take you anywhere on the island you want to go. We brought our own snorkeling gear and went snorkeling at our leisure for no additional fee. My daughter purchased the wave runner excursion for 100 and she had an enjoyed her time and it was her first time on a sea doo. She said it was amazing so I suggest you try it. Loved seeing all the iguanas and birds on the island. The BBQ was ok (it was the same food they served in the buffet dining room). We bought two non-alcoholic pineapple drinks and they were nummy! There was so much to do and with only a four night cruise we were kept entertained. One more reminder: you can bring up to 12 bottles of water or soda on board with you and two bottles of wine or champagne which we did do! This will save you a few dollars! Only took 15 minutes to get off the ship, get our luggage and get through customs. Overall I found the cruise to be fun and relaxing and would suggest this cruise! Read Less

My wife and I are long time RCCL cruisers. We are Diamond status and are always happy with RCCL. We booked this cruise because one of our cruising buddies was having a birthday while on board. After watching the price, we ended up booking interior state room #3155 expecting a normal interior stateroom like we enjoyed on numerous occasions. By the time we got into our room after muster and waiting for our other traveling companions we had to quickly get ready for dinner. We did notice a pole/pipe in the room near the bed but because we were rushing we didn't stop to analyze it. Actually joked about it. Then when we returned to the room late that evening it was quite apparent that this pole hindered getting into the bed and also severely obstructed the view of the TV. Hmmm …. what do we do about this at this late hour. Immediately before breakfast the next morning, we went to Guest Services and complained. No rooms available to move us to. We complained that a room like this needed full disclosure before the guest accepted it because of the pole, obstruction and difficulty getting in and out of bed. Then we advised them about the constant squeak all night that ear buds and the pillow over our heads slightly deafened. Guest Services said they would investigate. Our room attended advised us that a Supervisor had come to our room and our sweet attended asked us if we were mad at him. We assured him that we weren't and asked if he put the pole in the room. He said NO and actually admitted that it made it very difficult for him to make up the bed. We laughed with him and said if you had put it there then we'd be mad at you. A day goes by without any contact from Guest Services. Finally we get a call on the next to the last day asking us if we wanted to be moved to another room. We said NO because we were already thru more than half the cruise. They said they had been trying to reach us but we were never in our room. Dah … this is a cruise after all. We asked why they didn't leave a message on the phone. No reply to that question. They said they left us two notes outside our door to contact them. No notes. Finally, after much conversation they gave us a discount towards our next cruise and their apologies. Lesson learned … when booking a cruise ASK questions about your stateroom. The only dumb question is the one you don't ask. Overall, entertainment was good, the singer Lou Gazzara, was the best. The casino was smoker smelly and a turn off. The food in fine dining was great and Windjammer is always consistently good. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Read Less

My sister and I found a last minute deal and needed a quick getaway so this 3 night/4 day trip on Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas fit the bill. We have both cruised before, RC, Carnival, Norwegian, RSS. I did not have high expectations on this cruise due to the reviews I read. However, I was very surprised. We were in cabin 2626. While it was small, it was bigger than most my sister had cruised in. I am used to balcony's but this room was not bad. It did show a little wear, but it was still clean. There were lots of cubbies and drawers for us to keep our belongings. While the bathroom was small, it is a cruise ship so we expected that. Our room steward was kind enough to bring us robes at our request and he kept the room tidied. He only missed towel animals one night. Windjammer was what you expect at a buffet on a cruise, packed. We avoided it for the most part. We did eat breakfast there one day when we got up early and there were hardly any lines. We had breakfast in My Fair Lady as well and the service and food were very good. Dinner however was spectacular. The service we received from Harrshad and Iketut brought to memory the days of cruising before there were automatic gratuities, back when the staff had to work to get a tip. Top notch. We didn't experience the normal issues we have run into on cruises in the past, lots of lines, crowds, rude people and shoving. Only exception were some women at dinner on the last night who didn't seem to realize they were not the only people in the dining room and that not everyone wanted to listen to their shrieking during dinner. Also, some cruising college students who didn't understand that parties in the hall between cabin doors on a cruise ship are in poor taste. The spa was nice and the team there can help you to relax. Coco Kay was a lot of fun, clean and easy to enjoy. Blue Lagoon Island was another story. We signed up for the Stingray Encounter and Beach Day. After watching the tour operator mimic sex with the stingray in front of guests (went on for at least 10 minutes) we decided to skip that nastiness and headed to the beach. All in all, I would cruise RC again and I would cruise on Enchantment of the Seas again. Coco Kay, yes. Blue Lagoon Island, no. Read Less

I am DIAMOND on RCI. This is my 12th cruise on RC, all previously on larger ships like Freedom of the seas and Oasis Class ships. I was not excited about this ship but my girlfriends wanted to do a girls cruise for Halloween. I had a cabin to myself which I had to pay double, I think that is totally ridiculous. I upgraded for $100 more from deck 3 ocean view to a large oceanview on deck 8, with the large windows. I always get a balcony and just didn't want to pay $1000 for that room for 4 nights, which I regretted because I missed the balcony. That's one of my favorite things on a cruise is to just look out from the balcony at the sea, stars, etc. I learned my lesson to never book a room directly underneath the pool deck. I had earplugs in and every night very late or early depending on your perspective of time but around 3 or 4 am I heard loud noises from above of decks being cleaned and furniture being slid across the deck. Every night. And some nights it sounded like a heard of elephants running above my head. The room was OK, seemed a bit dark even with the large window. The room was good size, #8104. The bathroom was very small and the first I have had with shower curtain vs the plastic tube thing the other ships have. Impossible to take a shower without flooding your entire bathroom. They really need to change that out. My room steward was awesome! This was a Halloween Cruise and the Halloween Party and show by the dancers and singers in the centrum was fantastic! It was amazing. The costumes were incredible, including mine LOL. I was impressed with the food in the main dining room (It was better than Freedom and Oasis lately) however the service at our table of 5 was not great. Took a very long time to get courses. They didn't have the best attitude either which is not typical of RC servers. This ship has a strange layout IMO. I'm used to the Royal Promenade and that just lacked on this ship. The shops on the ship are hidden away on Deck 6 and hard to find, they are small and don't offer a lot of merchandise. The guy working the RC logo shop had the personality of a wet mop! Terrible. They had different watches on sale in the middle there different nights, on Tues night I saw a cute Ann Klein watch I liked but didn't buy it that night. Went back on Wed. night and those were all gone and all they had was Invicta out I asked about the watch from the night before and he said they were all put away for next cruise, could no longer buy it! WHAT?? You don't want to sell a watch? The price was $89 and 30% off which was about $65. I found the same watch on Amazon for $49! Bartenders mostly had bad attitudes with the exception of the Schooner Bar which those guys were awesome. I am diamond and get 3 free drinks nightly from any bar from 5-8:30. I was getting ready to go to the headliner show 8:45 (almost Elton John - he was AWESOME!) and I stopped by the bar on the way in to get my free drink ( I only get one per night, can get 3, I don't drink much) I waited in line, there was a man in front of me, it was 8:25. By the time this rude bartender got to me, he said "You're late, it's 8:31!) Really?? He said "What do you do when you are late for work?" I felt that was very inappropriate, I'm on VACATION, so I said forget it, I really don't need that drink if it comes with a bad attitude. He made it for me anyway after chastising me. WOW. Did I mention I am DIAMOND? I have spent a LOT of money on RC cruises and should be treated better than that. The entertainment and shows were good with the exception of "Don't Stop The Rock" OMG boring, very dated songs. Needs to retire. The C/D Cruisin Susan was great. This ship is showing it's age for sure. The solarium pool has lion head fountains that don't work and some of the ears of the cats/lions are broken off. They advertise that room as being A/C but it felt very hot and stuffy in there. I am glad they are bringing in one of my favorite ships Mariner of the Seas back to P Canaveral to do these short Bahamas cruises, I don't think I would go on Enchantment again. I live 2 hours from P. Canaveral so I try to get my cruises out of there. RC has really declined in many areas over the past 15 years for sure. Not the same at all, but I hear other lines have declined as well. It's a shame. We rented a private Bungalow at CocoCay which was awesome. Just beware of the many sting rays in that area. So many of them. We also saw a small 3-foot shark that came very close to the sand on the beach in very shallow water, they said it was a nurse shark, there were several out there. Read Less

Traveled with my husband and 9mth old baby. We booked through a travel agent Nikkia Fun Tours and chose Enchantment of the Seas as it was one on the smaller ships. Since it was my husband’s first cruise, a three night was a perfect starter length. We sailed on October 26th leaving from Port Canaveral to Freeport Bahamas, Cocoa Cay then back to Port Canaveral. Embarkation/Debarkation: This was a breeze. We had all our necessary documents, our bag tags and all other pertinent information were already mailed to us by our wonderful travel agent at Nikkia Fun Tours. We parked our car, tagged our checked luggage, headed up to the check in counters and were given our sea pass cards with no hassle. Same for when it was time to exit the ship, we headed to the deck per our group number and walked right off the ship, our bags were already waiting once we got off and customs was a breeze. Food: Once we got on the ship at around 11:45am we headed straight to the windjammer and found a table since our rooms would not have been ready until 1pm. Lunch was ready and it tasted great! Many wonderful options. A waiter came around and offered to bring us drinks and also to fill my son’s thermos with hot water that I needed to mix his formula later that day. We purchased the non-alcoholic drink package so indulged in a number of virgin cocktails, with the Pina Colada being my favorite and also our choice of sodas in our souvenir cups. Dinner in my fair lady was good, and since it was my birthday we also ate at Chops grill, it was a nice ambiance but outside of a special occasion I don’t think it’s really worth the extra cost. It was nice that the waiter surprised us with a bottle of wine compliments of my awesome travel agent who was very thoughtful and detailed indeed. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for hassle free cruise travel booking. Cabin: We booked a balcony room, deck 7 near the back of the ship. It was in a great location near the elevators and in a really quiet part of the vessel. Our travel agent had ordered a pack and play for the room and it was already set up for us once we got to the room. The room was not very large but well organized and enough for the three of us. The balcony was a big plus, love being able to go outside enjoy the view of the ocean and get some fresh air. Ports of Call: Freeport: we booked our own excursion. I used excursioneer.com to book day passes to Grand Lucayan Lighthouse Point Resort. It was exceptional! I would say that if it’s not peak season don’t use a booking site, you can grab one of the cabs at the port at $10 round trip and it will take you to the Lucayan Marketplace, from there it’s a short walk to the resort and you can buy the day passes for $20 per adult at the front desk. We ended up paying $25pp since we used a booking site. The resort was not at all crowded and we had full use of all their amenities for the day. We had fun in both the pool and the beach. Coco Cay: We only spent about 30mis there since the captain canceled the day due to high ground swells which caused the rides on the tenders to be very choppy. This was disappointing but it seems like Coco Cay would be a nice place to spend a sunny day. We will be back to try this again! Babies and Tots Daycare Absolutely loved the daycare option on the Enchantment of the seas. It was clean, safe and the caretakers were phenomenal. Our baby spent a total of 9hrs at daycare so that mom and dad could have some found around the ship on days 2 and 3. We had no problems and they took great care of him, $8/hr well spent. Overall it was a great cruise and we will most certainly sail with Royal Caribbean again, maybe for a longer cruise next time. Our baby had a fantastic time and we had a relaxing 3days. Read Less
