Enchantment of the Seas Cruise Review by boston1952
- Sail Date: October 2011
- Destination: Canada & New England
- Cabin Type: Large Ocean View Stateroom
The ship was famously stretched about 6 years ago. The problem is that public venues are the same original size so the shows were always crowded with passengers standing or sitting on the stairs in the theater. It is often difficult to find a quiet place during the day away from games, music or some other commotion. Even the Library is located off the Centrum (central Atrium) where there is almost non-stop entertainment.
The staff is great. The My-Time Dining staff and our waiter Santos were terrific. The food, however, is only fair. Again, nothing horrible but not much exceptional either. The Windjammer buffet is chaotic with several food stations jammed into a small circular area and there always seemed to be long lines of people waiting to get into the main dining room.
The ship is well maintained and in good shape. My cabin was quite comfortable and the stateroom attendant very attentive. I would sail on the ship again, maybe not for 9 days, primarily because of its convenience.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
Bar HarborBar Harbor is a charming town with shops and restaurants. There is not much to do in the town itself and an excursion into Arcadia National Park may be a good idea. Be prepared to tender as the ships cannot dock.View All 370 Bar Harbor Cruise Port Reviews

BostonYou would need several days and more time than is usually allowed in port to experience Boston fully. The ships dock downtown and within easy distance of the center of the City. Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market and the North End in particular are close by and filled with tourists and locals. If you have time wonder farther afield you can walk the Freediom Trail, visit Copley Square or venture to Cambridge to see Harvard Squarre.View All 548 Boston Cruise Port Reviews

Portland (Maine)Portland is a great city and you can walk to some interesting places from the pier. The other option is to take an excursion to Freeport, home to the L.L. Bean flagship store. If you are a shopper, Freeport has been turned into an outlet mall thanks to Bean's presence.View All 271 Portland (Maine) Cruise Port Reviews
