Hello everyone…
Welcome to "Live" from the "Enchantment of the Seas!"
I'm excited to begin another “Live” cruise trip report from the beautiful Enchantment of the Seas as I begin a new cruise adventure! Whilst I was aboard the Jewel of the Sea's this past April, Live report HERE, I was going to book a cruise on this ship to sail in September but seemed to never get to it. That booking while on the Jewel never occurred so this turned into a last minute cruise booking with me booking it a week out for sailing on July 22, 2013. Wait, I know you are going to say...but you're cruising on July 19th not July 22nd. Alright so then I booked sailing on the July 19th cruise this past Tuesday, three days out. Spontaneity for both of these cruises are in full force, sorry to anyone that's OCD and must plan things out way in advance! :-) Originally I had this time off from work to go to and be in a wedding, along with spending a week with various family members in the Boston area. Well the wedding got called off (Got word on Friday, July 12,2013), so rather than keep my plans of flying north, I kept my vacation time and booked this cruise in its place. (Reasonable swap to me, don't you think?)

I'm excited to be going back aboard the "Enchantment of the Seas", for a 2nd time as a more experienced cruiser! (Believe this is cruise #19, #5 with Royal, the second leg of the B2B should make me Platinum, Wahoo..now my cruise in November aboard the Freedom of the Seas will be a Platinum cruise, for what thats worth.) The first time I sailed Enchantment of the Seas was back in September 2007, with that cruise being my first with Royal Caribbean and of course I loved it. Seeing the many "Live" reports by Radio over the past couple years has made me want to get back on this ship even more. I was so excited when I had learned last year that Enchantment would be replacing Monarch of the Seas.

I did this same cruise (three day) last year this same weekend whilst I was aboard the lovely Monarch of the Seas, that cruise was my very first "Live" trip report. This cruise will be my fifth "Live" trip report. My cruise last summer on the Monarch was an exciting trip, we got evacuated off CoCo Cay within an hour or so after the island opened because of a storm that suddenly rolled in, lets see what fun adventures this trip brings. That "Live" trip report aboard the Monarch of the Seas is located HERE.
My plan is to have additional photos posted HERE along with what I place on this "Live" trip report throughout both cruises. With my trip reports I try to make them more of a report than a review. It's also my goal to make you the reader feel like your on the ship, even if it is just virtually. That's my attempt each time, not sure I always fully succeed though.

Tomorrow morning, Friday, July 19, 2013 I'll venture from Tampa and board the Enchantment of the Seas in Port Canaveral.
Our itinerary during the next 3 days and 3 nights:

Then...
Just when you thought you had enough... Why not cruise back to back!
Our itinerary during the next 4 days and 4 nights:

Welcome aboard! Sit back, relax with one of your favorite beverages as we watch, participate and begin new cruise adventures.
Bing Bong...oh wait, that's cruise director Marc Walkers line. <retract>
Till a later time...

Good catch, thanks. I put the wrong link on. Think I corrected. Can't start out a "Live" report with the wrong ship.

Also not sure why my font is so small either, sorry to those reading. The rest of my report shouldn't be like that as I won't be copy and pasting from word. Copy and pasting from word to this shouldn't be that difficult, but for some reason it never moves over without some kind of formatting hitch.

Thanks for following along. Last time I was on this ship was in 2007 when we sailed out of Ft Lauderdale, will certainly be different only going to two ports.

Thanks for following along Michael. I'll certainly have pictures of the Schooner Bar...one of my most favorite bars on all the RC ships I've been on so far. Can't wait to see the updates too. When I get back I'll have to go back and read your B2B you did like this last year on the Monarch.

Thanks for following along. Am sure it'll be great, hopefully we won't get evacuated off Coco Cay like we did last year. Good news is if we do, at least I've two chances to make it.

Thanks for following along Chris! Hopefully I can live up to your "Live" trip reports. Looks like we are sailing the same times again this fall, in fact the exact same weeks except you'll be on the Allure of the Seas and I'll be on the Freedom of the Seas. Two dueling "Live" trip reports the same week in November. The CC boards will be hopping. Only thing that would make that week better is if Radio and Trainman cruise that week too and do their "Live" trip reports.

Thanks for following along. It certainly will be different this trip without the drink package but think I'll manage. During the last trip on the Jewel I don't think I got my monies worth. Guess that makes me a quitter since I didn't try hard enough.

Back from work.. think I should pack tonight or tomorrow morning?

It's my plan to hand over my dog to my neighbors around 9:30 in the morning and then be on the road for Port Canaveral by 10:00.

Hope to be at port and on the ship by 12:30-1:00.


Wahoo! Hard to believe my unplanned cruise is now...

I'd love to read your live reports, but wait...we'll be on the ship ourselves! We found out on Saturday that we needed to evacuate our house for several days for some remodeling, so like you, we booked this cruise on Monday. Crazy trying to get it all together while moving everything out of the lower level of our house! (We didn't think about a B2B --that was a good idea!)

It's overcast here in PC this morning, but I can see the ship in port from our window at the Radisson. Hope we have a great weekend on board, and I'll look forward to checking in on your posts from cruise #2!
