We are a couple in our early sixties. This was our 15th cruise and our 3rd on Royal Caribbean. We flew into Baltimore the morning of the cruise and caught a taxi to the port. The taxi was $37.00. We were on the ship in about 30 minuues and our luggage was there when we finished lunch. We were in stateroom 2508 which was right at the front of the ship. The room had plenty of storage space and average room size. Only problem was the second day the seas were very high and it was very rough. No one is at fault, but a middle of the ship room would have been better. However,the rest of the trip was smooth sailing and no troubles. We have noticed lately that room stewards have more rooms and often they did not come to our room until after 2:00 PM. No chocolates on pillows, but often there were towel animals which we enjoyed.

While the Enchantment of the Seas needs some updating, it certainly was not bad. I really did not like the Atrium on this ship, but that is personal taste. There is only one dining room besides the Windjammer. We really missed the Anytime Dining. While we had RC Any Time dining, it was not what we were use to. You had to call and make a reservation for Any Time dining and it was just a section on the Main Dining Room. No choices. While others complain about the food, my husband and I found it to be very good. The beef was a little tough, but everything else was good. The last formal night lobster was a full,large lobster tail. We also really enjoyed the Surf and Turf night, also.

Activites on the ship were what is always on other ships. Somebody needs to come up with maybe something different. Trivia, Bingo, Casino, etc. get old.

Port Reviews

Halifax

This is a great port. Turn right from the ship and it's a short walk to the Harbour Walk. Beautiful city to walk around in and just visit. Last visit we had seen the Titantic museum and took a whale watch excursion. This time, we walked down the harbour walk, took the local ferry across the harbour and visited Dartmouth. After that we walked (up the hill 3 blocks) up to The Citadel. It was a great view of the city!! We then walked down and ate at the Blue???Nose local restaurant( It was on Duke Street). We ate the best scallops, shrimp, and cod we had on the whole trip. It was really good. Also, last time we ate at a small stand on the Harbour Walk and it was really good too. We then visited several shops and just enjoyed our walk back to the ship. It is a clean, easy city to negotiate and many activities to enjoy right on the harbour.
