The food is excellent as is the service. We have taken this ship twice - once Eastern Carribean and once Western Carribean. We just got off the Voyager. As far as I am concerned, the Enchantment was far more enjoyable for me. It is a smaller ship - it didn't feel like you were living in the midst of a Disneyland crowd every day for a week. My wife liked Voyager but maybe that's because she won $4,000.00 in the casino on the slots the first night (after that, they turn up the cranks on the machine so they don't pay out).
Yes, people DO reserve deck chairs by putting books, towels, lotion, etc. on them. I complained on the ship and after the cruises that they need to stop this practice. It really aggravates me as well. I just yank the towels off and pitch them and lay down. People also reserve seats in the entertainment theater even though they announce over the public address system not to do this. Americans are becoming so rude it just sickens me. You have to be bold - just sit down and to hell with them. We encountered this on the Voyager and I just sat down - I didn't ask - and when they say the seats are reserved, I just ignore them. Don't look - don't respond. When it happened on the Enchantment once, I told the guy that you can't save seats - he grumbled and picked up the papers he had spread on a dozen seats. It's not my problem, it's theirs.
While I consider Jamaica and Cozumel to be "pit" stops - the ship makes up for it.trip wrote:
