We went with brother and his wife who usually cruise Carnival. We have been trying to get them onto RC for several years. Well this was not a ship for first impressions. The staff tried, but with the limited resources, they couldn't make up for the many deficiencies. The ship is very dated, with a lot of rust and dirt (even the fake plants in the solarium were very dirty & dusty. Looked like they hadnt been cleaned in years. They were working on the main pool deck and rails (sanding) every day. blocking off available chairs, even on sea days. We had a suite, so sufficient room except there are only 2 electrical outlets in the entire suite. Very inadequate for cell phones, tablet, coffee maker, hair dryer (and we bring a string of mini-lights for Christmas cruises. Security kept one bag as I had a multi-outlet plug in it which they kept and said that maintenance would provide one that had been tested by them. Never received. They didnt tell me until I asked the room attendant and she said that all luggage had been delivered and to go to deck one security. No lobster offered in main dining room, even on formal night. It seems every cruise they offer less and less. We are Diamond status and have begun trying other cruise lines, last year we did Princess and enjoyed very much. I just booked one for February on MSC, especially with their status match program. Brother and his wife were very disappointed with their balcony cabin also. Not a good first impression. Read Less

My past sailing experience was on Liberty of the Seas, a larger ship. The service with Royal Caribbean is always top notch. They really do put the passenger first. There was a nice variety of activities. Enchantment is a smaller ship so expect everything else to be smaller as well. Smaller arcade, gym, and other shop amenities. My ocean view cabin was nice. Our steward kept the room tidy and would do anything I asked. He created towel animals for us daily. Windjammer buffet was a smidge disappointing but I also do t generally eat buffet style food but didn’t want to use he main dining room for breakfast and lunch. Dinner in the main dining room was nice. Wasn’t alway pleased with my entree but I’d still give it 5 stars for service and effort. I’d say get a few of the appetizers and extra desserts. Yum! They did have a nice selection. I do suggest getting in the porter line on disembark day, it goes way faster. Totally worth a tip of a few dollars. Do not schedule and pay for an airport transfer if your flight is before 1pm. Chances are slim that you’ll make it on time. Speaking from experience. 12pm flight but didn’t arrive to airport till 12pm. Excursions are a little pricey for the Bahamas cruise. Wait for Black Friday sakes if possible. Save yourself the headache. In all, I give enchantment 4 stars. Read Less

This was our 1st Royal Caribbean cruise - Princess and Carnival were the others. We were pleasantly surprised to check in with no lines - it took about 30 minutes from parking our car to sitting in our stateroom! Our stateroom - 1264 deck 10 - AWESOME! Bed had a curtain to separate from sitting area, with couch, two chairs and end tables and coffee table. A bar area separated the sitting area from the HUGE mirrored closets, another mirrored wall, and there was also a fridge with more storage. A full bathroom with tub, double sinks, and again mirrors on two walls completed the experience. Our cruise missed Coco Cay due to weather, but kudos to the captain for his honesty! Another cruise ship was docked beside us, and we spoke to some passengers who were told there was a medical emergency. (not so) Shows were rarely full, however we could not do the escape room because it was booked solid, and we really wanted to do it. Debarking was also smooth - no crowds to speak of - and the worst was trying to find the exit out of the parking ramp! I too have spent HOURS waiting in line to disembark (Carnival in Tampa) We are already talking about our next trip! Read Less

We chose this cruise due to timing and itinerary. Also, having sailed several smaller ships, wanted to try a mega. My review is based on prior experience on smaller ships, so I’m not sure if I should have been surprised. First, I’m a fan of the freestyle dining and give very high marks to “Q” which was the best food on the ship. This could be an industry change, but all “included” meals did not match the quality I’ve experienced on RCC or HAC. Outside of Coco’s, which is phenomenal, I found the desserts to be disappointing, Loved the race track but would never do it more than once. The music/entertainment is outstanding. Especially recommend the Beatles cover band and 4Blue. My biggest disappointments involve the lack of service and personalized attention I have grown accustomed to. Other than the first day, did I ever experience anyone walking around with drink service. Regular restaurant service was poor and the sentiment of staff felt like they were doing us a favor by waiting on us. Several food orders wrong, which I can accept, except recovery also failed. Sat at many tables just waiting to be acknowledged by wait staff or brought coffee or refills. Let’s talk about the unlimited drink package: strange that includes all drinks up to $15.00, but not plain orange juice, water or coffee. Definitely felt like non-drinkers were on the wrong boat. Watch your pours at the bar: I had to take a breathalyzer test due to an accident and it registered 0.00, after 2 mojitos. They tasted good, but what was in them? Line does efficient job with getting on and off the boat, and muster drill was also super efficient - best one yet. Cabin was lovely and space used efficiently. First time on a cruise I had storage space I didn’t use. 11th floor balcony room with double sink. Steward was very good at securing eggcrate mattress topper to add comfort. Overall, the ship is stunning and allows for many places to explore and enjoy. But if you are wanting service and expect folks to assist you, choose another. It’s really ashame as basic training and English lessons could improve the customer experience 10x fold. Read Less

I went on this cruise with my husband, two sons 22 and 15 , mother in law and sister in law. we had three rooms. everything was smooth and great. I give everyone from the cruise director leon, the dining staff Phillip to the stewards a wonderful rating they gave all of us a nice time our rooms clean I dropped a crumb under the bad to prove to my husband that they clean every part of the room. The activities was amazing also it seem everyone one on the ship tried to join in. I loved princess cay island also it seem private just for our ship yes I would go again already booking a trip. I would recommend this trip to family and couples. it was my husband and sons first cruise I went on a few with my grandmother when I was younger and my in laws also went on a few they all loved it Read Less

We are an older couple. It was a celebration of our golden anniversary. The ship's crew made us feel really special. It's a nice ship but a little old. The pool is really small. It has no USB ports but the productions shows and other entertainment are really good, We selected this ship because we wanted to go to Cuba at this time of the year and we do not regret it. The food was delicious. The service is great. I mean starting with embarkation and ending with disembarkation. The crew is very friendly. The service in the dining room and the Windjammer caffe. The cabin steward was very good. We loved the walking tour of Havana. We highly recommend it. .The tour guide was excellent and the tour ended with a visit to a night club where we tasted smoking cigars, drinking rum and drinking coffee. It was great. Read Less

We chose this cruise solely based on price. We've been on dozens of cruises with all the major cruise lines. We knew going in that it was an older ship, and mainly just wanted a nice few days away from the cold weather. There were some things about this cruise that pleasantly surprised me and other things that were disappointing. Embarkation The embarkation was one of the easiest we've ever done. They let you schedule a time to arrive at the port. Miami is a pretty easy port to navigate. We walked right up and a woman scanned our pre-printed tickets and directed us onto the ship. There was no waiting or anything. They said our rooms wouldn't be ready until around 2pm so we went to the buffet. At around 1:15pm they called out to everyone and said our rooms were ready. Stateroom There were 2 of us in an interior stateroom. The room is definitely dated, but looks pretty much like every other interior stateroom on every cruise ship. It was cramped and tiny but I thought it was somewhat larger than other ships we've been on. The beds were pretty comfortable. The bathroom also seemed slightly larger than on other ships. The towels seemed kind of old and had stains on them. There was a handheld shower faucet and the pressure was pretty good. The walls are pretty thin so we could always hear people talking and kids running around outside. Entertainment/Activities The cruise director's name was Kevin. He looked kind of like Gordon Ramsay. He was pretty funny, but he made way too many announcements over the intercom. Every 5 minutes we'd have to stop our conversation to listen to a long announcement about bingo or whatever. We didn't really go to many of the shows. The guy in the piano bar was great. He played a wide variety of stuff (not just Piano Man and Sweet Caroline). They have a number of bands throughout the ship and I thought all of them were fantastic. We played trivia a couple of times. It's not the typical trivia but more geared towards pop culture (e.g. Friends trivia, etc.). Food The food was excellent on this ship. They have a 24 hour pizzeria and deli which had great fresh pizza. There was also a 24 hour self-serve soft serve ice cream machine. The buffet had a different theme everyday (e.g. Italian, French, Caribbean, etc.). On the whole, the food there was decent. They also had a great mexican place with really good tacos and burritos. And then there was a Guy Fieri burger place. Aside from the constant Guy Fieri catchphrases blasting from the TV, I thought the food there was excellent. The food in the main dining room was a little underwhelming in my opinion. Not the greatest quality, but not bad. They seemed to seat everybody at giant shared tables. I find on most other cruise lines, they tend to have smaller tables where you can have a private table. They did have smaller tables upon request but they seemed very reluctant to give them out even though they always seemed to be empty. Ports Our cruise went to Key West and Cozumel. We arrived in Key West around 8am and left early around 1pm. I really like Key West and wish we had more time there, but it was nice to walk around and eat some key lime pie. In Cozumel, we arrived around noon and left around 9pm. Most of the beaches close around 5pm so there wasn't much to do there after that unless your into getting blasted at Senor Frogs. Overall Overall, it was nice cruise. The worst part of the trip was that the entire ship smelled of sewage (especially in the hallways and staterooms). It was super gross. I think they need to take this ship out of commission for a few weeks and fix their sewage problems. Other than that, I ate a ton of food, got some sun, and relaxed a lot. So I can't complain.

Everyone said Princess is a grest cruise line. I was very disappointed in the food and overall experience. The comedians were the highlight of the cruise. Our cabin attendant was excellent. The Cruise Director and her staf did a good job. The dining was a big disappointment. The food was ok, but not was I was expecting. You had to wait in long lines for a burger, pizza, ice cream or anything at the International Cafe. We got lost repeatedly as they don't have any wayfinding system like Royal Caribbean. To get to our dining room, we had to goup to ths 7th floor and then down to the 6th floor. I found it odd and annoying. We got locked out of our room twice on a 5 night cruise. We had to go from the 14th floor to the 6th each t I'll me we got locked out. Both times were late at night when we were teying to get back to the room to go to bed. Read Less

Saw an advertised “special deal” on Carnival - $749 for 8 nights so wanted to see if we would enjoy a longer cruise in possibly a different region with them. Food in restaurant, service and staff excellent. Ship was kept spotlessly clean. Cabin 4118 was spacious and our Cabin Steward, Ketut, maintained the room to a very high standard. He addressed us by name at all times, enquired about our activities and always had a welcoming smile. Lots of fun trivia, Serenity area was a bonus, entertainment was on par with other cruise lines. Only minor downside was the setup of the food in the Lido. We found it very spread out and difficult if you wanted to eat different food but enjoy it at the same time as the group you were travelling with. Overall it was a great experience and would definitely book another Carnival cruise. My daughter did a Caribbean cruise with Carnival 3 years ago and says she would also book another cruise with them. Read Less
