Enchantment of the Seas - Good Vacation

Sail Date: September 2008
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We sailed on the Enchantment on Sept 29 - Oct. 4.

Embarkation-We flew in the same day as the sail date and were fortunate to have no delays or problems. Our flight arrived around noon in Ft. Lauderdale and within 1.5 hours, we were on the ship enjoying lunch.

Ship/Stateroom-The ship, though not a new vessel, is in great shape and very luxurious. Though there are some minor cosmetic blemishes (chipping paint, stained carpets, etc.), we enjoyed the layout, condition, and cleanliness. Our stateroom was an inside stateroom. The room was somewhat small, but cozy, the bathroom and shower, well it is a cruise ship so we aren't expecting a lot of space, but it was manageable. One thing was that there was slightly tinted orange water coming out of the sink faucet. We received a note from the cruise ship that they were flushing the lines to correct the problem, but we took this with stride.

Food/Dining- Windjammer was excellent in freshness, quality, and More variety (except for breakfast where the menu was similar every day). We never had any problem finding a seat there. The dining room food was good, not great, but we enjoyed it. The service in the dinning room was also acceptable, no fantastic.

Day at Sea - Nice activities, we preferred the Solarium rather than the pool deck, because it was quitter and didn't have any kids. We also didn't experience many activities, but they seemed entertaining.

Disembarkation-A nightmare. It seemed very disorganized and many people were concerned about making their flight. We did the Travellite option, carried our own bags, and we barely made our flight. Less
