Cabin: Large Ocean View Stateroom

This was our 19th cruise and 14th with the Royal Caribbean family. This is our 3rd time on the Enchantment in the past 12 months. Since we live in Pamana now, we have been on her doing the round trip cruises out of Colon, Panama that last two trips.

This time, we couldn't pass up the $299 offer and were upgraded to an Outside cabin. We flew into Ft Lauderdale from Panama City via American the day before the cruise. We flew with another couple that our friends. Once we arrived in Miami and claimed our bags, we then went to the bus terminal. There we found the machine inside the terminal where you can buy Tri-Rail tickets. We purchased one way tickets for about $3.70 each to the Ft. Lauderdale airport station. It accepts cash or credit cards. You can only do one ticket at a time. If you pay with a $20, the change is in the new $1 coins. Just an FYI.

We ended up waiting 10 minutes for the bus (Route 133). There is a Tri-Rail sign out side by the curb to show you where the bus will stop. The drive is about 10 minutes to the Tri-Rail station. Once there, the train was waiting. We walked on board. There is room for your pull luggage when you enter. A Tri-Rail staff member directed us where to put it. We kept our personal bags with us. It took about 35 minutes to get to the Ft. Lauderdale stop.

Cabin Review

Large Ocean View Stateroom

Cabin H

The cabin was a standard size cabin for ships at the time it was built. For us there was plenty of room. The bed was comfortable. There was plenty of closet space and hangers. The bathroom is the normal small cruise ship with the shower curtain making love to you during the shower.

The carpet and other hardware were new for the most part. The bathroom color is outdated. Only complaint is that they take up valuable counter space with their soda, water, and snack mini-bar selections. I'd rather not have them and have the free space.

The room was quiet and very convenient being close to the stairs but off the beaten path. I would book this again in a heart beat...
