This was a short cruise to the Bahamas. Enchantment is an older Vision class ship that has had a number of modifications over the years. She is in good condition, but the hull could use a paint job. This cruise went to Nassau and their private island CocoCay, with a day at sea. The new terminal at Port Canaveral is excellently designed and makes embarkation and debarkation go pretty smoothly. Well done Royal Caribbean.

The Windjammer Buffet seemed smaller than on some other Vision class ships. Dessert selections at dinner were limited and there was no one serving ice cream sundaes like on other ships. Breakfast did not have any pre-made fried eggs, so you had to wait in the omlette line or go with the scrambled ones. Toast remains a problem on cruise ships and this one was no exception. Dinner and lunch options were good.

Entertainment in the theatre had pretty good production shows and a pretty awful comedian. The ships orchestra was great. Too bad their shows were in the Centrum instead of the theatre or one of the underused larger lounges. This was true of much of the lounge entertainment, which RC believes should now all be in the Centrum. This takes away the intimate nature of lounge entertainment. Plus, the acoustics in the Centrum are inferior. The mellow piano music in the Schooner Bar was the exception, always pleasant.
