  1. Just off the ship (Enchantment: Sept 6-11, 2019) and thought I would share what I learned, this was our first time on Royal Caribbean: The nursery is very clean and the staff are fantastic. They only allow in six babies at a time though, so really plan ahead and book your spots. We managed to grab the last spot for formal night, and we reserved before dinner the day before. The hours are few: 10-noon ($6 an hour) and then 5-midnight ($8 and hour), but the time in between is open play so you can always take your kids in there to play with their toys. When I dropped off my daughter (2 years old) before dinner, I also provided a small bag with her lovey and diapers and some snacks. They asked me a very thorough questionnaire about allergies, what is okay for her to eat, what would be the procedure for if she wanted to sleep, etc. Though we fed her before we dropped her off, I know they provided food because her goldfish was half gone and they mentioned that they offered her french fries but she wasn't interested. We were charged $20 for 2 1/2 hours, 5:30 - 8 pm, which was wonderful for one night of dinner all to ourselves. We did the toy lending, which is completely free. You can check out a bag of age appropriate toys to keep in your stateroom or play with in an empty lounge. You can exchange for a different bag or just return it at any time, but make sure you return anything by the last night. My four-year old went to the Adventure Ocean/ Aquanauts Kids Club and loved it. She was in the 3-5 age group, which they do keep separated from the bigger kids. They played duck, duck goose, did face painting, made crafts etc. She said she loved it because they had a dance party every day. They do limit the number kids and though I never had a problem at drop off, I did see them turn away some 6-11 olds because they ran out of space. The hours were split into sessions. Morning (9-12), Afternoon (2-5), Evening (7-10) and Late Night (10-2 am). You can drop off and pick up any time during those hours, but be mindful of those break times in between sessions. I did sign my daughter up for kids dinner one night, and they took all the kids to the buffet for pizza between 5-7. You do have to sign up for that, it is free, so don't forget to tell them when you drop off your kid and be aware that kids dinner is not available the last night. Hope this helps anyone!
  2. Oh, I didn't even think about that! Last time we ported at Nassau it was just me and my husband and I remember the vendors being pretty aggressive. Thanks for the heads up!
  3. Does the Royal Caribbean app work on the Enchantment of the Seas? If so, does the chat feature work?
  4. Just an FYI: If you have little kids, or need extra help getting around, then they let you do the muster drill in the dining room and not outside. This was a big relief when we sailed on the Valor back when my baby was one.
  5. That's the first I have heard about different hours on this ship. (Which is, naturally, the reason for this post so that I can discover and be able to plan for things like that.) What were the night hours? Like 5-10pm? Glad to hear she liked it! I'm sort of hoping that since school will have started we will also not be overwhelmed with a large amount of kids.
  6. Does anyone have a review of either Aquanauts or the Royal Tots Program on Enchantment of the Seas? I've read lots of vague things but nothing specific about this ship. I've got a 4 1/2 year old and a 2 year old daughter, and we sail on the Enchantment this September. We went on the Carnival Valor last fall and my older daughter tried the kids club once and never wanted to go back, but she seems more interested in the idea this time around.

  8. I was looking at the port pass and was interested in a few of the activities but not all. Does anyone know the cost for each of those activities individually? Both my girls are under 5 years old and I won't be drinking tequila.
  9. Is the zoo worth the price?
  10. Hey Everyone! We are headed on yet another cruise in February with a port stop at Nassau. Any recommendations for a different type of excursion with a 2 and 5 year old? We have been there before and aren't really interested in doing Atlantis again or another beach. Something quick and close maybe? I like going back to the ship after a few hours to enjoy the onboard activities with less crowds and to let my kids get a good nap, but open to suggestions!
  11. Thanks, I'll put it up on that board too. I kind of want to stay on the ship, but my husband wants to get off for at least a little bit.

  13. Not really. I spent a lot of time on NCLs website trying to find out more, and you can always try calling in to get answers about the kids clubs. We ended up cancelling the trip due to scheduling conflicts with other family members, but I have been cruising with my two toddlers before and it can be done, with everyone having a great time, as long you plan, plan and plan some more. Good luck!
  14. What excursions did you do with your three year old?
  15. When we went on our cruise to Mexico, they made us empty our bag of all food we had brought off the ship for snacks. Do they not do that in Hawaii?
