We just returned from our 3rd enjoyable cruise on the Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Seas (EOTS), and our 2nd EOTS cruise to Bermuda and the Bahamas. All 3 cruises to/from Baltimore. Baltimore is so convenient for us, only 45 miles away, so we are used to avoiding the hassles of air travel ... just driving up to the ship and having our luggage pulled out of the trunk, parking nearby, and boarding the ship with little fuss. Older and smaller ship but right for us. None of the crazy crowds, long waits, and long distances associated with the mega ships. Our ocean view cabin (2020) was clean and spacious, and our cabin attendant Leonard was wonderful and went out of his way on multiple occasions to do everything and anything for us. He even noted a malfunctioning light (we never noticed it) and promptly got it fixed. We mainly took our meals in the main dining room, the food was delicious and we were spoiled by our dining attendants, Sunny (waiter) and Henry (assistant waiter) who both went out of their way to meet our every need with a smile. They were absolutely delightful, and we felt very cared for in their hands. When made a request for alterations (eg no sauce, extra veggies instead of pasta, extra fruit) on the basis of health issues they made it happen. They were even willing to request the creme brulee recipe from the chef on my behalf. Cudos should also go to dining attendants Rajeev and Robert (with the decorated vest) who cared for us during lunch and breakfast with equal care. We knew Rajeev from a previous EOTS cruise and were so happy to see him again. Robert made such an impression on my husband that my hubby gave Robert his extra US Army Ranger tab (brought to wear on formal nights) to add to the other pins on his waiter vest. All of them took the extra time to get to know us and to add to our cruise experience by describing their cultural backgrounds, their families back home, and what it was like to work aboard the cruise ship. This being our 3rd cruise on the Enchantment, we were delighted to see again our dining room manager Deepak, who oversaw our previous dining experiences. Deepak's "extra touches" were always much appreciated. We always looked forward to conversing with him. He is a unique, interesting, caring, and wonderful individual. For example, my husband is a decorated/disabled combat veteran, and Deepak ensured that his every need was met in terms of best meal time, what he could eat/not eat, and a table location that allowed him to eat peacefully and enjoy the sea view. It was important to us that the EOTS dining room personnel were not just "servers" to us but individuals who shared and participated in our cruise experience. They seemed to feel the same. The ship remains beautifully decorated for its age, and the music entertainment was superb. Cruise director Eric was consistently fun, full of humor, approachable, inclusive, and always open to conversation and input. The mob dance that he organized was incredible and so much fun to watch/participate in. The July 4th celebration and acknowledgement of US military veterans was superb and meaningful. The international night, during which ship crew and staff marched/danced around with the flags of their home countries to local music, was tremendous and so much fun to watch. Hubby and I were convinced to join in on the Trivia (city and country) game one evening, which we ended up winning for a "life altering" cruise ship key chain. Lots of laughs that evening. All of the above personnel and activities made our cruise so much more delightful, fun, and memorable. A final praise needs to go to the ship's IT staff who helped us with every request regarding our lack of competency with the ship's phone and WiFi setup. Thanks to all the EOTS crew and staff for another wonderful cruise. We will be back on the EOTS next summer for an Alaska cruise.
