Enchantment: good deal

Sail Date: April 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
The inaugural cruise from Port Canaveral was the main reason for the cruise. No fanfare aboard, no recognition that this was the inaugural cruise. Other than that, the cruise was very nice. The Captain , Gus, has a great sense of humor; his officers mingeled freely with the passengers; the crew was helpful and friendly. Food at the buffet was typical buffet food. Only 'complaint' was that no lox available at the main buffet. Explore and you will find a nice breakfast selection in the serenity pool area. Dinners were tasty and well presented. Our server was anxious to help. Interestingly there were no escargots available and lobster and some steaks were extra ($29+ for lobster). Pool area was clean, plenty of chairs in both sun and shade. Smoking area was confined to one side of the ship. Coco Cay is worth a visit. Look around for a quiet spot and you will find it. Plenty of tenders to and from ship. Nassau is...Nassau.
My cabin was a little larger than some. Large floor to ceiling More window was appreciated as was the individually controlled a/c. Plenty of outlets for charging camera and phone, small fridge and safe added to the room. Closet space plentiful. The bathroom had to be one of the smallest I ever had aboard a ship. The shower was barely big enough and if you are a "large" person, you may have a problem.
embarkation and debarkation were a breeze. Friendly and helpful people stationed along the way were an extra I had not seen on other cruise lines.
"Enchantment" is refurbished ad you can see where some more work needs to be done. And it would be helpful if you could check your account via the TV in stead of standing in line.
RC is offering 3 and 4 night cruises from Port Canaveral and I would recommend "Enchantment" as a good value. Less

Cabin review: G Large Ocean View Stateroom

Location of my cabin was open to the atrium and was a little noisy at night.
