Just a Great Getaway

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Bermuda
Embarkation: Baltimore
Cruised from Baltimore to Bermuda on RCCL. What a great time. Easy to and from the port. RCCL port personnel were super helpful, we were running late, and courteous. First time w/o balcony. Inside was close but commfy. Learned my way to the cabin by second day. Whee! Ship as very clean and appeared well maintained. As usual the crew personnel were eager to please, especially the people at the Customer Service Desk. What a set of real professionals they are.

Some web sites said the casino on the ship could open in Bermuda after 2200. Not so. No casinos in Bermuda. Even on board. Gym was smaller than larger class ships but that was expected. However, it was adequate. Enchantment is a nice sized ship. It is due to complete modernization in DEC 2012.

I'd say the strong suit that separates it form other cruises was the strength of the entertainment. The shows were great. A special presentation on the history of RCCL was most informative and very well More received.

Dining was very good. Have food allergies and staff went out of the way to accommodate these. Lucked out again on tablemates. We had a fun bunch at our table for eight.One couple older than me and two younger. Had a blast at each meal. RCCL website said one formal night, but we had two. OMG what to wear?
Can't wear the same dress twice! Still had a great time.

We'll sail with these guys again and soon I hope. Less

Cabin review: L3879 Large Inside Stateroom

First time for inside cabin. Tight but comfortable. Really dark when you turn off the light. Very quite. Bed super comfortable and bedding the same. Closets somewhat smaller than balcony cabins but large enough for a six night cruise.

Port and Shore Excursions

Complete Bermuda

What a great tour!! About five and one half hours. the tour bus was clean and the A/C worked great, but the best part was Evan Caisey, the driver and briefer. Was there anything about Bermuda he didn't know? I doubt it. Sound system was great and we had no problem understanding Evan. Cost was about $75/per. Well worth it. They picked us up at the dock and gave us a ticket for the ferry or bus back to the ship which we could use as we desired.
