My cruise history, 11th and 6th with RCCL. I first have to say that the Enchantment OTS was one of my favorite ships that I have sailed on with RCCL. Only one that I enjoyed more was the Voyager.
Check-in at the pier was a breeze! Within 30 mins. we were walking up the gangway to the ship. First impression upon entering the centrum was the use of glass giving it much natural light. Furnishings in the public areas gave a light and airy feeling.
We had a balcony stateroom on deck-8 it was well appointed, and our cabin steward Francisco was great! He attended to all our requests in a timely and professional mannor. This was my first cruise sailing as a Platinum member and Francisco recognized that immediately!
Our late dining time 8:30 was confirmed and also the table for 2 as I had requested in My Fair Lady dining room. Food was good and prepared as ordered. I had read reviews that food on this ship was not up to par, however I don't have any complaints. Only comment is the fact that RCCL does not change the menu items much. There were several repeats on the menu from previous cruises.
There was a invitation only reception one afternoon for Platinum and Diamond members only. This was held in the Viking Crown lounge. We did attend and were greeted by the Crown & Anchor ambassador. Had comp drinks and snacks for approx one hour.
Overall we had a very enjoyable cruise. Weather was perfect! I won't go into the ports of call all I will say is we did everything we planned. Had a great time on a great ship!
