Royal Caribbean Enchanted of the Seas rooms are comfortable but missing modern touches, such as USB ports, bedside outlets and glass shower doors. While we don't think the furnishings and carpet date back to the ship's launch in 1997, they certainly look like they do.
Despite coming in under the industry average in terms of size, cabins are comfortable and spacious enough for two people. Junior suites and higher-category rooms feel large enough for a family of four, but, honestly, we can't imagine cramming more than two people into an inside or ocean-view cabin on Enchantment of the Seas. Lots of people do though, and we often saw the ceiling Pullman beds fully set up as we passed open doors.
(Nevertheless, here’s a tip for those in an interior stateroom: for the best inside cabin on Enchantment of the Seas pick one of the handful of units that are located on deck 3 between the two elevator banks (the farther away from either of them, the better). They get little afterhours noise and there’s no ship motion to be felt on normal weather conditions.)
Plenty of rooms do offer extra beds for up to four people, and some suites can even take up to eight. Enchantment of the Seas cabin 7666, an aft junior suite, is not surprisingly one of the most popular cabins on the ship. It’s more spacious and has a bigger balcony than other cabins in this category, and doesn’t get as much noise from the Spotlight Lounge below as the rest of the Enchantment of the Seas junior suites in this section.
There are also lots of connecting rooms, as well, for those who want to share some space but don't want to be confined to one room. You'll find 20 accessible cabins in a variety of categories.
All cabins come with at least two closets and three large drawers, as well as smaller desk drawers and cabinet space. A couple of smaller, camouflaged shelves are tucked behind the sides of the desk mirrors. Rooms have at least two chairs: one desk style, one armchair. The desk has some open space, but half of it is usually taken up by a tray with your ice bucket (if you request one) and glasses.
The only electric outlets in the room are located by the desk as well. You'll find one U.S. and one U.K. outlet. We used an adaptor in the U.K. outlet so we could charge more than one item at a time.
Beds are almost all twins that can be pushed together to form a "Royal King"; a handful of rooms have queen beds instead. In many of the rooms, the bed is backed by a mirror, ostensibly to make the small room feel bigger. But, like the furnishings and carpet, the brass-framed mirrors just give the room an out-of-date feel. Overhead lights are perfectly positioned for hitting your head in the middle of the night.
Most rooms have one flat-screen TV with several channels, including news, sports, movies and several ship channels with all kinds of information about offerings of Enchantment and Royal Caribbean, in general.
Enchantment of the Seas interior rooms and ocean-view cabins without a balcony do not have mini-fridges, but all other cabin categories have them. Similarly, all balcony cabins and higher have double sofa beds, while only some inside and ocean-view rooms have them.
The standard Enchantment of the Seas bathroom is small. Forget about trying to fit two people in at the same time, and the showers, which are seriously undersized, have flimsy shower curtains that don't reach all the way to the bottom. Unless you're paying attention, you're going to end up with water on your bathroom floor.
We suggest asking your room steward for an extra towel and have it already on the floor when you step into the shower. In the shower stall, you'll find a pump with a body wash/shampoo/conditioner combo; if you care at all about your hair, we suggest bringing your own bath products. There's a bar of soap for the sink.
