Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2009
Cabin: Owner's Suite with Balcony

Background: Previous cruises on HAL, NCL, Princess and (ancient history) Costa and Sun Lines. First cruise on RCCL. Preferred cabin: Aft Suite, but on this cruise, chose a starboard Owners Suite due to great deal and timing of the voyage. (Birthday)

New Terminal: Departing on 10/26, we were the first passengers to embark on a cruise from the new terminal 18. The terminal is being prepped for Oasis' arrival in November. It's a lovely facility with tons of space, but oddly enough, only 1 lady's room tucked in the far rear corner. When there are 5000 passengers flowing through for boarding, this may be a problem. Possibly because it was the 'shake down cruise' for the terminal, the lady's room didn't appear to be attended and was rapidly becoming messy, even at the early boarding time.

Boarding process: WOW! Arrived around 10:45 and flew through the whole checkin process. Upon boarding, there were RCCL reps at the entry, but they weren't really greeting guests and provided no directions. On previous cruises the welcoming staff typically provide a map or layout of the ship as folks are boarding and since this was my first time on the Enchantment, I could have used it. BUT there, were nicely detailed models of the ship on each floor at the elevators and that helped. Followed the flow of others and headed for the pool deck. Enjoyed my first boat drink by 12 and chatted with folks until the rooms were ready at 1.
