Just wanted to start a new post for everyone to discuss Enchantment, great place to discuss upcoming cruises and what we have heard either rumor or truth about the ships repairs and new itineraries.

Thanks for starting this thread. I am sailing on March 31 so have been reading all the posts about Enchantment. I cannot be flexible at this time of the year so if the ship goes to drydock early we will be without a spring cruise. Hope all gets repaired quickly.

I am booked on the EOS in July. I guess everything should be OK by then. There was a big price drop Friday evening the went back up Saturday morning. I am booked through a TA and could not get a hold of her. Next time I am going to book another cabin on the same cruise at the lower rate then cancel the original one if I cannot get a hold on my TA in time. I lost out on a 360.00 decrease per cabin and I am pissed I waited. I called RCCL and she said that the price should be the same still on Monday. Not true. I'm hoping with the bad publicity with all that happened with the EOS that they temporarily lower the price again.

My parents are on the March 10th sailing and are very interested to hear if there will be any itinerary changes. (My mom is still trying to get me to go, but now I'm even less sure....I live near Baltimore, so I can go last minute....we shall see.)

From a couple of posters who know about the propulsion system, there's no need to drydock. I'm on the 10 March sailing. Unless you are staying in your parents' cabin, you won't be going unless something comes open, as the cruise is sold out. The speculation is that if our cruise is affected, Key West is the port we'll probably miss as it's the farthest away. There's always the good chance that they'll get the repairs done during this next cruise. If there are any itinerary changes we won't know until probably 3-5 days out.

We are on the tenth of March cruise too. Hope we can all learn what is going on here on this thread.

I suppose all we can hope for is that they manage to get the problem fixed. Sure would hate to miss Key West. Everyone seems to feel that would be the one they would eliminate if one had to be skipped.

I would love to miss Port Canaveral instead,lol. But I know that is where they get the ship's supplies from...

I don't think the current cruise returns until tomorrow. This thread should pick up after their return.

Tomorrows cruise 2/27/12 has revised itinerary, but nothing has been discussed on future plans. I have family members cruising 3/31/12 I hope that everything is resolved by then.

It would be nice if RCCL could provide updates as well, I realize that they cannot disclose too much, at this point, however, anything would be appreciated.

Next time you see a price drop, take a screen shot of the prices and save it to your computer. You can send it to your travel agent to prove there was a price drop!

We are on the March 19th sailing. I wouldn't be one bit upset if we missed a port. The itinerary for tomorrow's sailing is great. There is more time in all the ports except for Labadee. I've been to Labadee and it is a nice beach day, but if we can get more time in the other ports... I say, "Hip hip hooray"... guess you can tell I was a prek teacher eh?

If I got to pick the port we would miss,it would be Port Canaveral! My least favorite one to miss would be Key West ; we love Key West!! However, having said this, we all know we don't get to vote on this. It is the company's call and we are just passengers.

Lets try to stay really positive! Time will tell.
