Traveled with children

This was my daughter's High School Graduation gift...4 night cruise. We were mom 45, daughter-18, boyfriend-18, son 14. We went with another family; Mom, son-17 and daughter-15. This was our 5th cruise and first for my daughter's boyfriend and the other family. We flew Airtran from PHL to Fort Lauderdale the day before, rented a mini van from Budget and stayed at the Comfort Suites Airport Cruise Port. I'm not sure I could justify the rental car cost...$88.00 for one day, although it gave us the freedom to go to the beach and grocery store and out to dinner at LuLu's (decent food, good drinks). The hotel offered free shuttle from the airport to hotel, then a free shuttle from hotel to the port. Taxi's were waiting to take you back to the airport after the cruise...$20.00 for each family. Hotel was adequate, clean and comfortable, the pool was green though (and tiny). The breakfast offered was better than I expected, more than traditional coffee and danish.

We arrived at the port around 11:00 and breezed right through check in and up to Windjammers for lunch. I think our first time cruisers were in awe at how beautiful this ship was. This was my first time on Enchantment and I would never have guessed her older age. Her refurbished facelift looked wonderful. Her staff was wonderful also, always a friendly hello and smile! Our interior cabin was a bit small but adequate for two. The girls in one and the boys in another, next door. We paid $249.00 each, so how can I possibly complain?

The food in the Windjammer's was good, breakfast was great, the made-to-order omelet station was perfect. We did the late traditional dining every night and the food was excellant! Onion tart ? Escargots ? Lobster Bisque ? etc. Yummy!!
