My wife and I are going on the Enchantment of the Seas on 12/2/01 and we were told that one of our stops is Costa Maya Mexico and now I'm hearing that they stoped that and are now stoping at Ocho Reos instead. Can anyone tell me if there's any truth to this?
My wife and I will be on Enchantment on Oct 21-28. I would also like to know the answer to your question. I know it was switched from Costa Maya to Ocho Rios at one point, but I heard they switched it back.
If no one responds prior to my trip, I'll let you know when I return...
I read on another board that the last western caribbean sailing of Enchantment went to Costa Maya. Before that they had been substituting Montego Bay, Jamaica. I have never heard reports of the Enchantment stopping in Ocho Rios. Several people going on the Enchantment on the cruise critic boards have called RCI to inquire about where they are going to stop, and they get a different answer every time!
My wife and I were on the Enchantment West C on the June 4, 2000 sailing and they used to stop at Ocho Rios... We will be very happy if they permanently remove that stop and add a day at sea or a different port as Ocho Rios was awful... Dirty, rude, smelly, and people that were ready to rip you off as soon as look at you... If you wish to go to one of th Malls about a mile up the road from the port, you are instructed to take a taxi (and get ripped off by them) instead of walk as you could get mugged... What a stop... Otherwise we absolutely loved the Enchantment and are looking forward to sailing on her again sometime soon...
