Enchantment is a great ship, smaller in size and easily navigable. If you are looking for bells and whistles with non-stop activities, it is not the ship for you. However, if you like a more traditional, relaxing cruise, then I highly recommend it. Others feel the same as I encountered a number of repeat passengers during the course of my trip. Although showing its age a little, Enchantment is well maintained. Level of service was very high across the ship. My room steward Sutario was quite attentive, including daily ice following my initial request.

Quality of food in the main dining room was generally good with the seafood and vegetarian entrees I selected. Two salmon entrees, especially, were delicious and perfectly prepared. Although not an issue with dinner, service at both breakfast and lunch was little slow. The wait staff seemed efficient enough, but those meals took longer than they should have (one hour plus). Plan accordingly when you are coordinating other activities. The dining room does not have many small tables, so expect to share a table or wait for a private one. I had my own table for My Time Dining, but had to share at most of the other meals in order to get seated quickly.

Lots of music throughout the day with variety of styles. My favorites were Rockport (rock/country), Andrew Trevor (piano bar), and Mellow Mood (Caribbean). A second piano player, a guitar player, Latin band, and orchestra also offered musical sets. Plenty of sitting areas to listen to the music, read, chat with others, or play games.

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Ocean view cabin. Clean with enough storage to totally unpack for the trip. The bathroom is typically small and the shower has a curtain. Shower door would have been a little nicer.

Port Reviews

King's Wharf

Bermuda is a great destination. Easy to leave and return to the ship. Shopping and activities available within walking distance.

Shore excursions were well organized. Famous Homes and Hideaways boat tour was very relaxed with personable crew and lots of interesting details. It lasts about two hours, so plenty of time to do other activities.

The Island Drive tour is a longer (5 hours), more detailed small bus tour. Good narration from guide/drive Paul, but not constant talk, which allowed time to enjoy the scenery. It included several short stops and two longer (30 minutes each) stops in Hamilton and St. George. It was enough time for all of the stops with the exception of St. George. I could have used a little more time there as longer walk to the shops area. Otherwise, it was a great way to see all of Bermuda in limited amount of time.
