Yes this is a pretty long review but wanted to be as well rounded as I could! We went for a wonderful cruise aboard the Enchantment of the Seas 5 days and 4 nights out of Port Canaveral. Were were in cabin 3927 which is an interior interior cabin (yes it was inside of the inside LOL). Never felt the ship even moving and it was dark and cool the way I like my bedroom. We were kept busy on the sea days and could always find something to do. The pools and hot tubs were never overly busy so we were able to swim at our leisure. Really enjoyed the solarium adults only pool area but there really were not many kids on board anyway. Loved the trivia contests with Connie from Argentina. Our wait staff at My Fair Lady were amazing so shout out to Wayne and Sinjin (hope I spelled it right. Our room steward was amazing and catered to all of our wants and needs. I made a special request for a fan before we got on the ship and they provided one for me as well as water and a extension cord for my CPAP machine.Enjoyed the musical shows very much and the adult late comedy show as well. Our cabin was small but comfy (yes the shower curtain does stick to your bootie because it is a small space but we were fresh and clean and that is all that mattered). We always saw someone cleaning and there was plenty of sanitizer to go around. The staff was very friendly and outgoing. The food in the Windjammer buffet was ok but nothing to write home about. I wish they had more beef options and everyday was the same thing. Would have been nice to spice it up and change some of the main dishes available. We had all our dinner meals at My Fair Lady but we used the upgrade option to filet mignon for a small extra fee. I enjoyed all my food but noticed most of the beef selections have the same "gravy" on it so it all kinda tasted the same. Yes people I'm a beef person but also had seafood pasta one night. I was also expecting some different options each evening for dessert but found the same ones each day which was a little disappointing. That being said our servers were amazing and I couldn't ask for any better service. On the first night I was eating dinner and got a very quick case of sea sickness which surprised me because I've never experienced that before. As soon as the main course was served it hit and I basically ran out of the restaurant leaving my poor daughter sitting there all alone and luckily made it to the cabin before I completely embarrassed myself. It was obvious I was missing in acting when the server came back. I was surprised when less than a half hour later there was a knock at my door. I struggled to make it to the door when it suddenly opened and there stood my daughter with two servers from the dining room. Without her asking they had brought two new entrees of Prime Rib and desserts for both of us directly to my stateroom!! I was overwhelmed with gratitude. What amazing service! The next evening when we went to the dining room two of the managers came to my table to ask how I was doing. With all of the people they see each day I was humbled that they remembered me. The third night at dinner we were eating when a person from a neighboring table was walking by and spilled a full glass of red wine all over my left side. I'm not the type of person to get mad and things happen. The guest actually offered to buy us a bottle of wine do to the accident (we don't drink but it was a nice offer). The staff stepped in immediately and helped me get cleaned up and gave me a ticket for three free items to be laundered so they got all the wine out of my clothes and it is a funny note to the trip. We enjoyed the shows very much and I want to let you know to catch the game shows (Love and Marriage and Music hits) as well as the belly flop contest. We laughed so much! We also caught two moviesSo now onto excursions. While in Nassau we bought the Aqua Adventure package at Atlantis. I'm and older person and have to admit I was disappointed when we found that the lazy river was closed for the day (the rapids are too rough for me) so we hung out in the pools most of the day and visited the beach which was beautiful. I have to say almost 300 dollars to hang out in a pool seemed excessive. I enjoyed walking through the hotel and aquarium. We had lunch (sliders and fries with two drinks) and it only cost 20.00 which amazed me. It's a lot of walking but it was beautiful. However, if you have any medical issues I wouldn't suggest the water park. Just take a taxi and visit the beach and stroll through the shops and casino for free. On the last day we visited Coco Cay. BEAUTIFUL is all I can say. I strongly suggest purchasing the clam shell and lounger package. It was 90 for two people but well worth it. They were located at the far end of the island and it was very very quiet. When you purchase the loungers you also get access to a tram which will take you anywhere on the island you want to go. We brought our own snorkeling gear and went snorkeling at our leisure for no additional fee. My daughter purchased the wave runner excursion for 100 and she had an enjoyed her time and it was her first time on a sea doo. She said it was amazing so I suggest you try it. Loved seeing all the iguanas and birds on the island. The BBQ was ok (it was the same food they served in the buffet dining room). We bought two non-alcoholic pineapple drinks and they were nummy! There was so much to do and with only a four night cruise we were kept entertained. One more reminder: you can bring up to 12 bottles of water or soda on board with you and two bottles of wine or champagne which we did do! This will save you a few dollars! Only took 15 minutes to get off the ship, get our luggage and get through customs. Overall I found the cruise to be fun and relaxing and would suggest this cruise!

Cabin Review

Cabin 6V 3927

Small but comfy. Clean. Never felt the ship moving. It was an interior "interior" so we were in the middle on the aft side. Bathroom was normal for a ship (small LOL) but it does the job. We had two twin beds (the mattresses are HARD but hey we slept). Lots of drawers an plenty of hangers. Amazing steward! Good a/c and dark which is how I like my bedroom.

Wave Jet

My daughter did the wave runners and she had a blast. Well worth it. We also rented a clam shell and chairs which was very nice. Strongly suggest you rent one! Had a place to get some relief from the sun and it included a tram to take us anywhere on the island we wished to go.

Kept us cool and the area where they are located is at the end of the island. Very quiet and relaxing. We also brought out own snorkeling gear and had a blast. Don't need to pay for it if you have your own equipment.

Atlantis Resort

The lazy river wasn't working that day which really was inconvenient since that was the only thing I could do (medical reason) besides the pools. My daughter did enjoy the rapids and the slides. Enjoyed the aquarium and walking through the shops and played a few slot machines. The beach was beautiful. If I had it to do over I would have just paid for the tour and saved money. A lot of walking but I enjoyed the weather.
