  3. Enchantment of the Seas

I've been on over 20 cruises, so I know what to expect. Ship looks great, cabin (outside) was fine, beds comfy. Sink has no counter space, who designed that? No more refrigerators in room (let's make sure passengers don't get to keep cold drinks!). Shows were good. We were in port both days, so not much going on-board. Nassau, we were late, so cut our Atlantis time, wish the ship could get there an hour earlier.

CoCo Cay is really nice. Better food than on the ship! Lovely beaches and nice water. Tendering is pretty slow going, but they use large tenders.

Only gripe was the amazingly bad food. There was not one decent dish in the dining room, except the salmon on the first night. We were a group, and we were all shocked at how bad the food was. Salads were at room temperature (obvious cut backs on the refrigeration), soda can's were room temp. fries were cold at dinner, food was barely edible. The desserts were a joke! These are cheap cruises, so it's obvious the cruise line is putting a little money into the food as possible. For formal night-they had a 'saffron' night. Guess where the saffron was-it flavored the cauliflower! Are you kidding me?! The buffet closes at 9:00 p.m. SHARP every night! really? no snacks, not open after breakfast, just briefly at lunch, and then re-opens at 6. There is very little foo on this ship-it should be diet ship!

 

Short, sweet and obvious signs of cheapness!
