I sailed on the Enchantment on 1-30-00 to the western Caribbean. I loved this ship. It is identical to the Rhapsody of the Seas, which we sailed the year before. We felt right at home. You can see my review, and others, at www.cruiseopinion.com. I would sail this ship again in a heartbeat. For now I'll be content with the Ocean Princess on 2-4-01 but then we'll be on the Vision of the Seas, Enchantment's sister, in February 2002 to Hawaii.

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:

Sailed Enchantment 06/25/00 and it was all I expected and more. As long as you don't expect perfect gourmet cuisine and take int account that the kitchen staff are catering for approx 2000 people the food is superb, though much better in the dining room than Windjammers buffet. Kids, 16 and 22 year old boys enjoyed the all day pizza at solarium bar for lunch, hubbie & I preferred dining room as we got to meet lots of new people every day. Shows were very good and surprisingly we all enjoyed the Las 'Vegas type shows as much as the so called headliners. All in all would say you are going to have a superb time. We are sailing the Majesty on short 4 night Bahamas break 09/25/00 just to keep our toes in water ;-0
