This is my review of the Enchantment of the Seas Columbia and Dutch Caribbean cruise:
Prior to departure we spent two days in Panama City taking in the sites and the Panama Canal. We had a private tour which was fantastic! If you ever find yourself in Panama, the canal is a must; we spent several hours there watching the ships; truly fascinating!
Now, onto the cruise; we boarded the ship in Colon, Panama on Sunday, March 14, 2010. The check-in was well organized and went very quickly. The departure time was not until 7:00 pm which allowed people to trickle in throughout the day and although it was booked to capacity, the ship never seemed too crowded. One thing to note is that this was a Spanish speaking cruise. RCCL made a point of calling us after we booked to ensure that we knew this (which we did). Spanish speaking cruise in this case simply meant that all announcements and shows were done in Spanish first; they also did the announcements and shows, etc. in English. Neither my wife nor I speak Spanish (my wife has a basic knowledge of the language) but had no issues and the crew and most passengers were very accommodating (and friendly).
Room 3011 has a large pole at the foot of the bed on the left side as you enter the cabin.
