my wife and i would like to think we are avid cruisers. at least one a year for the last three years and twice this year. we however have a bad habit of going all out the first time and we expect to be great all the time. so this time we had to lower our expectation. i have learned that once you go big there's no looking back. we just got back from a 4 day cruise to key west/cozumel on the enchantment of the seas. like the title says; very relaxing but it wasn't fulfilling. by that i mean we went a smaller ship because of the not only the price but i had never been to key west before. i loved key west and i loved Cozumel. and the price for this cruise was great. but i wish this was on either a freedom class or a voyager class ship. we missed the promenade and the 24 hour coffee/pizza. we love coffee. i lose count after the 30th cup that's how much coffee we drink. therefore we missed the all you can drink coffee. sure you can buy a cup of coffee in the centrium area and go and people watch but that's what the promenade was for. that to me was my biggest complaint about this cruise. as for the ports. hey its key west. loved it. saw the famous bars, the statues, famous houses and few cats. lets not forget the furthest point south. the light house. and last but not least the original MARGARITAVILLE!!!!! Cozumel. wonderful! we highly recommend the Eco jeep tour by sunshine tours. if you get Jorge and Felix that is a plus for you. they were great. that excursion was well worth the money. in fact you get more than what you pay for. all the water you can drink. a lunch that they cook for you and did i mention that its all you can eat? most little beach excursions take you to a spot that has a few fish and the coral is on the verge of death from all the suntan solution we put on. not this excursion. beautiful fish, beautiful coral formations, sea turtles, large starfish, a wonderful site to behold. the entertainment could have been better. however the comedian they booked was great. the singing and dancing not so great. i felt the food was fabulous. as were the deserts. the staff was very helpful. the cruise director, well i thought he was OK but my wife thought he was hot. WHATEVER. the quest was probably the racist quest i have ever seen. WOW! i should have recorded it and put it on you tube oh well. the one thing that really stands out to my wife and i was that we didn't have to use our life jacket for the muster drill. that right! no life jacket. can someone explain that to me?

all in all well worth the money just not a big enough ship. hey that can't all be the OASIS of the seas.
