Sail Date: Apr 2013
Cabin: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

We mainly took this cruise to relax and visit with a family member aboard the Enchantment. We knew it had also been refurbished so we wanted to see that also. This was the first cruise ship we ever sailed on and right now it was our 30th and was our sixth time aboard her.

We made private flight accomodations to fly into Baltimore Maryland in the morning. We took a taxi cab to the pier and it took approximately 1/2 hour. When we arrived it seemed as though this was prime time and everyone was in line at once. This was the WORST embarkation we ever experienced. We stood a Disney World like twisting line which seemed to stretch on endlessly. We heard someone finally mention after 45 minutes that Diamond and Diamond Plus members could proceed to the front of the line. Too bad that wasn't mentioned when we first arrived. We finally got through the security screening and were able to proceed to the Diamond Plus line for boarding. We had all our documents signed and ready so we boarded the ship within 5 minutes after that. We proceeded to our stateroom 7072 and were pleased with the ample space for two. We then went to the (new to us) Park Cafe in the Solarium. After seeing the offerings there we went to the Windjammer to see what they had for lunch. Food was fine, nothing spectacular. We went to see our Dining Room Table next since we asked for a small table. We found that it was a table for 4 which was fine with us. We went back to our room and met our stateroom attendant Nichela who received our Wow envelope at the end of the cruise with extra gratuities for her outstanding service.

We went to the muster drill and explored the updated Centrum. We decided to dine at Chops the first evening since there was a buy 1 dinner get 1 free coupon in our Diamond Plus booklet. We spent the evening in the Concierge Lounge and saw our family and met some outstanding bartenders there. Service here is top notch and was rewarded at the end of our cruise with another Wow envelope with gratuities for both gentlemen working there. We dined at Chops and would tell anyone that the specialty restaurants on board all RCCL ships are worth the extra $$. We dined there 3 times this cruise and enjoyed Chops every time.

Cabin Review

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin D2

This cabin had a problem with the shower and sink. No hot water. We called maintenance but they couldn't repair it.

Port Reviews


We took the ship's excursion "escape to Malfini" and my only complaint was that they didn't have chaise lounge chairs to lay out on. I had to recline on a float mat over the sand.

This was an exclusive island escape with drinks available for purchase after you finish your first one

St. Maarten

Our favorite port of call. This is the best island for alcohol, cosmetics, fragrances, jewelry and clothing. We shop here every time we come on the Dutch side of course


We stopped at a private beach to lay out in peace and quiet.


Beautiful Island, beautiful beach.
