Enchantment of the Seas Cruise Review by teacherman
- Sail Date: April 2013
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
EMBARKATION: WORST I have ever experienced, due to the security check. I have written this story on the Eastern Departure Ports page. We stood in security line for 90 minutes. Once through that, we were registered and on the ship in 10 minutes.
Cabin: We had an inside on deck 4. Nice and quiet. Room is showing some wear and tear, although there was a new flat screen TV.
Crew: A very good crew on this ship; very attentive, professional, and eager to please.
Food: no complaints. Took breakfast and lunch in the Windjammer and all dinners in main dining room. We had My Time Dining, but liked a particular waiter, so we were with him most of the time. We did try the Park cafe in the Solarium a couple of times, but did not really care for it.
Entertainment: all musicians were good. Production shows were some of the better ones I have seen. Special entertainers Tony Pace and the Happenings were very enjoyable.
BIG COMPLAINT: The new large screen TV installed on the pool deck is VERY annoying. I wrote of this on the RCCL page. They show movies and sports in the evenings, which is okay, as the people who want to see them go there and watch. BUT, for some reason, they BLAST the CNN news each morning from 8 to 10, when the pool should kind of be a "quiet" area. Have not heard from anyone who enjoyed watching 2 hours of news. They also show some candid camera type videos each morning about 11. Some people liked to watch them, but WHY have the music and laugh track playing. That is not necessary to enjoy the video and just irritates the 90% who are not watching.
DIS-EMBARKATION: walked off the ship about 9:15, went through customs, got our bags, and taxied to the airport (flat rate-$30) by 10:00. Easy.
SUMMARY: Without the big screen and embarkation issues, this would have been one of the best, and relaxing, of our cruises. Can't do this one again, as this ship is re-positioning to Florida to do 3 and 4 day cruises. I think Grandeur is taking her place out of Baltimore.
