Pleasantly Surprised With The Enchantment Of The Seas

Sail Date: June 2013
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Arrived at Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal 10 at 1:45 PM on Monday 6/17/13 - the cruise terminal was almost empty, so we breezed right through and were in our cabin (3124) within 15 minutes. Of course there were lots of people trying to find their way around and just checking out the ship - to be expected, and soon cleared. At night there was an annoying rattle in the wall under the window that would periodically wake us up and then go away - the wall probably would have had to be dismantled to clear it up - we finally got used to it. Aris the Room Steward was excellent - rarely seen, everything done as it should be. The cabin had more storage space than any cruise ship we've been on - also excellent.

After a glass of champagne (gift from the casino staff), we took a quick tour of the ship. Our first impressions were memorable and will stay with us - the public spaces were very spacious and quite clean. The windows didn't have the usual crud build-up that is so common on More cruise ships - this crew obviously works hard to maintain the ship.

The restaurant operations coordinator provided us a perfect table (86) for our dinners - table for two, right at a window. Head Waiter Petar, Waiter Ahmad and Assistant Waiter Igor were very friendly and provided outstanding service - the best we've experienced in many years of cruising. We were to find the food was better than the usual cruise offerings: the prime rib and lamb shanks were outstanding. Especially impressive was the staff in the Windjammer - they really put forth effort to make dining in that facility a pleasant experience - the best we've ever seen.

The casino was where we spent most of our time on this cruise. The casino staff under Manager Robert Jula were very friendly and hardworking. Ass't Manager John O'Hare, Host Shirly Wong, Cashier Manager Judith Nery, Slot Manager Jeff Coetzee and his wife Supervisor Casey were all outstanding, as were the other supervisors and dealers whose names escape me.

Renyo the Concierge was a great host in the Concierge Lounge. We enjoyed having a glass of wine there before dinner.

Captain Gus was the most passenger aware Captain we've ever seen. Always mixing with the passengers and providing confidence and happiness in his travels.

We did not go ashore at either CocoCay or Nassau as we have been at these locations many, many times. These are good times for us to rest up for our next sessions in the casino. Less

Cabin review: G3124 Large Ocean View Stateroom

3124 - Good location, excellent storage spaces, very clean, annoying noise in wall under window. Clean window. Annoying shower curtain (show me one that isn't).
