Enchantment Of The Seas Review

Review of Enchantment Of The Seas

The 1997-built Enchantment of the Seas cruise ship is the 4th Vision-class Royal Caribbean liners, with sisterships Vision OTS, Legend OTS (now Marella Discovery 2), Grandeur OTS, Rhapsody OTS, Splendour OTS (now Marella Discovery).

History - construction and ownership

Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is a US passenger shipping company, trademarked travel brand, and subsidiary owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCCL, shipowner). RCI was established in 1968 and currently has over 1/5 of the worldwide cruise market. RCI also has RCG's largest fleet as both numbers of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). All RCI liners have names ending with "of the Seas".

The 2000-passenger ship Enchantment OTS was enlarged/lengthened during drydock 2005 refurbishment, when a 73-ft / 22-m long midsection was added.

This is the reason why parts of the ship sparkle like new, while others show a bit of wear. Although the external appearance of the Enchantment of the Seas is slightly faded, the midsection (both inside and outside) is still looking comparatively new and offers a larger pool deck, funky suspension bridges, Boleros Latin lounge, Ben and Jerry's, Champagne Bar and Centrum Atrium with glass-enclosed elevators.

Cruise itinerary program

Enchantment of the Seas itinerary program was based on year-round 3- and 4-day short Bahamas cruises from Port Canaveral Florida USA.

In 2021, RCI started Enchantment OTS' homeporting in Baltimore MD, replacing Grandeur OTS. The roundtrip itineraries (5-7-8-12-nights in length) visit ports in Bermuda (Kings Warf/5-night), Florida-Bahamas (7-8-nights), Southern Caribbean (12-night).

Decks and Cabins

Enchantment Of The Seas staterooms (1142 total, in 22 grades) include 94 Suites, 154 Balcony, 431 Oceanviews, 463 Inside. Cabin sizes vary between 130-150-190 ft2 (12-14-18 m2). Most cabin balconies are sized 40 ft2 / 4 m2. The largest is the Royal Suite (1185 ft2 / 110 m2 plus 140 ft2 / 13 m2 terrace). Wheelchair-accessible cabins are 19.

The boat has 12 decks, of which 11 are passenger-accessible and 5 with cabins.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

For a quick bite choose Enchantment's Windjammer Marketplace. It's set up in various stations, so you can grab everything from cheeses and pizza to carved meats and dessert. Beginning at 3 pm, Afternoon Tea is offered there each day. During busy times, it's difficult to find tables. For more formal dining, better check out the 2-level My Fair Lady dining room. It's open daily from 7 to 9:30 am for breakfast and from 12-noon to 1:30 pm for lunch (when it's converted into a Brasserie 30 restaurant, which serves excellent dishes like shells with pesto sauce). Set-seating dining times are 6 pm and 8:30 pm. Passengers can opt for any time dining, which allows to avoid set tablemates and eat between 6 and 9:30 pm. The alternative dining venue onboard Enchantment of the Seas is Chops Grille, which carries a fee of $25 per person.

  • Chops Grille (108-seat specialty restaurant; reservations recommended)
  • Park Cafe (68-seat deli restaurant; complimentary - serves the Solarium area).

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

Orpheum Theater is the venue to go for shows. It hosts everything from comedic performances and musical revues to free first-run movies. The theatre comprises space on Decks 5 and 6. Flashy Casino Royale is situated between Boleros Lounge and Orpheum Theater on Deck 5 and features an exciting see-through floor close to the entrance and lots of lights, as well as blackjack, roulette, craps, poker and slot machines.

For daytime fun, the main pool deck is the spot to participate in funny contests, from Ms. Biceps to belly-flopping. Most enrichment consists of activities like gaming lessons in the casino and dance classes in the disco, free of charge. If you expect lectures and the like, Enchantment of the Seas probably is not the ship for you. The line offers a number of shore excursions through its "Explorations!" desk. Glass-bottom boat trips and sightseeing tours are very popular, as are beach excursions, but have in mind that you may be able to access some of the beaches for free or for a lower price if you go on your own.

Additional amenities include Complimentary 24-hour Room-Service, Adventure Ocean (Youth program), Internet/WiFi Access, Laundry.

Enchantment Of The Seas Wiki

Royal Caribbean's Enchantment and Grandeur were the first-ever liners of a major cruise company to have Dynamic Positioning System. Enchantment OTS was built in Finland (completed on July 3, 1997). Vessel's godmother was Colleen Fain - wife of Richard D Fain (Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean International). The naming ceremony was on July 12, 1997, held at Port Southampton (England UK). The next day (July 13) started the inaugural cruise (maiden voyage).

As a Vision-class ship, Enchantment has the Viking Crown Lounge at its Deck 11 - ending the 7-deck high "Centrum" Atrium. This is the perfect 360-degree place for enjoying panoramic sea views.
