I was googling some stuff on RC ships in general. I am not easily scared off or bothered by stuff and I find it more interesting then anything else.
I noticed the Enchantment has been in the news a lot recently! I do not have any cruises booked on it and due to its home port I don't see my booking any. I live a lot closer to Florida and Texas and have a port right here in New Orleans as well. So I am more curious then anything as to what is happening on that particular ship!
It has had 2 major drug busts on it in the past year. Crew members smuggling a 100 grand in heroin ~ I am not talking a college aged kid having a bag of pot. Then another crew member is in the news this week for pleading guilty for raping a 14 year old passenger. Then I looked at their CDC report card and their grade went down some this last inspection ... totally acceptable they did not fail. However I find the offenses were more crew related then other RC ships.
Example .. on the Allure, they got points taken off for not having this on their H2O zone sign, "Parents please take your child to the bathroom every hour." I guess the Allure folks figured that was common sense LOL
That isn't a crew member issue however.
On the Enchantment I see things like food not being placed under the sneeze guard, brooms left on drinks in the kitchen, chewed apple core next to food in the galley. I see a lot more crew related mistakes then with other RC ships.
So is this all just dumb luck for the ship or are they having serious issues with crew or management? I love RC ships and I am sure the passengers do not even notice 99% of these issues while on their trip. That is why I didn't want those paranoid folks reading and canceling their cruises LOL
For those who have sailed on it recently, have you noticed any problems or issues that you normally don't see on RC ships? As stated, I am more curious then anything lol
Its not rocket science, its a vacation!
