Another Great Cruise On Enchantment

Sail Date: November 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Baltimore
A nice sunny day greeted us at the Port of Baltimore. After a short wait we were able to enter the parking lot and get our luggage unloaded from the car. We are local so we drove and parked right there. So nice and easy. We got there around 10:30 so when we entered the building the line for the security check in was short and we breezed through. As usual, check in was fast and easy. The people there are first rate and know how to keep the lines moving. We had about twenty minutes wait time, then we were able to board and went right to the Windjammer. After a very pleasant lunch we went to the library to wait for the cabins to be available (1:30). We met our stateroom attendant, Rafael, in the hall and he welcomed us aboard. He asked if we had any special requests, yes, more pillows. One thing that was new to me on this cruise was a sign that said ice was available by request. I requested ice for morning and night and it was always there. Our Grand Suite had enough closet More and drawer space even for me. Hubby had more than enough for him. The bathroom was large with a tub and space in the vanity and behind the mirrors for storage. Balcony had two loungers, two chairs, and a table. A nice sectional sofa and a chair completed the living room. It was large enough for six of us to have breakfast the first sea day. A flat screen TV, DVR, and a tuner were in the living area. A full curtain could be pulled to separate the bed room from the living room.Our 4th port was Royal Caribbean's private island, LABADEE. We booked a cabana over the water for the six of us at Barefoot Beach, the private beach for Diamond Plus Members and Suite Guests. It had two comfortable loungers and a sectional It also had a ceiling fan and came with a cooler with ice and water. There was also an attendant that got us float mats, chairs, snorkel equipment, and drinks. Mark also made sure we had plenty to eat at the barbecue and took care of our plates. The only suggestion that I would make it to try and do something about the "gunk" floating in the water and all the rocks on the bottom. Less

Cabin review: GS Grand Suite with Balcony

Large amount of closet and drawer space. Nice location for going to the Windjammer but a long walk to the center of the ship. Close to the elevators but didn't hear any noise from them. Cabin #8540

Port and Shore Excursions

The beach at Cayo Levantado was delightful. The sand was soft and not hot to your feet. An attendant wiped down the chairs and placed them where we requested. The water was nice and warm and had a very soft sandy bottom. There were little stalls to purchase souvenirs and lunch and drinks were available to purchase.

Since we were scheduled to arrive in San Juan around 3:00pm we decided we were going to stay on board. We have been to San Juan several times and enjoyed it.

This was my second time on the "BONES" Pirate Ship and it won't be my last. We sailed to Turtle Cove to snorkel with the Endangered Green Turtles. We were given instructions by the crew not to bother the turtles. We also snorkeled by a Reef and were able to see many different kinds of fish. The crew always kept an eye out for anyone needing assistance. Back on board, PAINKILLERS, were served while we sailed to Honeymoon Island for a beach barbecue. A great lunch was served and there was time to just relax in the water. Then we boarded the ship again and sailed back to our ship. The crew made it a great excursion and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time.
