"LIVE" from Enchantment of the Seas / Jan 7, 2012

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. . . I am happy to say that tomorrow morning I will be boarding the Enchantment of the Seas at Cruise Maryland.

 

It is just a short drive to the port, and I plan on arriving by around 11AM. Luckily, the forecast is for mild temps (75F), and sunny skies. I am hoping for a very nice sailaway at 4PM. We should have about an hour left of daylight while we sail down the Chesapeake Bay.

 

 

I last cruised on Enchantment of the Seas in August when I sailed a wonderful 9 Night Canada/New England cruise from Baltimore. The "LIVE" Post from that cruise can be viewed HERE

 

For those of you who are new to Cruise Critic. . . This will be more than a Cruise Ship review. Many of you who are aware of my “LIVE” reports know that I will be posting daily comments and reports on Enchantment of the Seas, with daily photos of the public areas, lounges, and hopefully all of the Entertainment, Sports, and Dining areas of the ship.

 

There will also be comments and photos of the ports of call during the week. I am hoping that my Internet connection will be reliable, as I will require a stable connection to post photos throughout the week

 

 

Our Itinerary should provide nice weather as we sail south to Port Canaveral, Key West, Nassau, and CocoCay. For 9 nights I will be able to relax, sleep late, and enjoy the sun. . . (I may also relax in Casino Royale)

 

I am sure that the ports we are visiting will provide me with some nice memories and lots of photos.

 

I think I remember where the Starbucks is in Port Canaveral, Key West and Nassau. . . I'm glad I brought along a GPS :)

 

So sit back, have a coffee, and join me for the next 10 days. . . It should be alot of fun !

Hey Radio! So happy to see another one of your live reports up, can't wait for it to start! I was wondering if you could grab a picture of category FI (Family Interior) room for me if it wasn't too much trouble.

Radio, 75F? It's supposed to be nice tomorrow, but not 75, more like maybe 60 or so. I'm looking forward to your review too. We were just on Enchantment in July for a 5 day Bermuda, but we'll be boarding her again in March for a 9 night Bahamas cruise (same itinerary you're doing)

Someone recently did a review from December and Starbucks is now onboard Enchantment.

 

Enchantment usually passes over the bay bridge/tunnel around 11, so they appear to be right on schedule.

LOL. We're only about an hour from Baltimore and I knew it wasn't going to be that warm tomorrow. Still, great weather for January in MD.

Always a pleasure reading and cruising with you. Looking forward to the rest!! Do you have anything planned for PC? Im debating doing this same itin. To bad there isnt more time in key west. Its really the only thing keeping me from booking.

Yeah!!! I need a virtual cruise especially on one of my favorite ships. You are right about her being ahead of schedule. We have cruised on her several times out of Baltimore and she never got to the bay before 11pm.

Have a wonderful cruise and if you see Reyno give him our best. :D
