Did the 9 day San Juan, St. Thomas, Labadee Haiti,and Samana Dominican Republic cruise on the Enchantment, out of Baltimore. Those who do Baltimore departures know how easy it is. Between parking the car and walking on board the ship took a half an hour.
Did two cruises on Carnival's Pride so my comparisons are a bit limited.
The Enchantment was beautiful. There were no issues as to its cleanliness or ease of access to public areas. The staff were marvelous. Special kudos to our steward, Michael. The captain was everywhere and accessible to all cruisers. The Solarium was our special spot. I thought the food was very good at both the formal dining room and the buffet.
Cabin 8084 is a Juniour Suite with Balcony. The room was very clean and comfortable. It was close to the elevators and internet room. We heard no noise from other floors. Our Steward, Michael, took very good care of us/the room. The bathroom had adequate space. Lots and lots of storage space. TV on the Enchantment kinda sucked. Lots of stations for non-english speaking cruisers. Two news stations, two ship associated stations, a movie here, a sports game there.
Massive and constant traffic jams. Very narrow sidewalks. Very easy access to and from the ship. Night life doesn't start, I was told, until after 11:00 PM.
Clean and easily accessible by a $4.00 taxi ride. Went to Megan's Bay. Megan's Bay was beautiful. $9.00 by taxi.
