Come Sail Away - "Live" from Enchantment 11/16 - 11/19

Recommended Posts

Left casino and headed to welcome aboard show.  Sat in the reserved seats behind sound booth.  Diamond, D+, Pinnacle, and Suites are eligible.  Decent seats.  The pictures are all taken with a 70-300mm zoom lens. 

 

A quick number with RCI singers and dancers, and then a PG rated comic.  Forget his name,  he's back with adult show Sunday night.  He was pretty good.  Cruisin Susan is CD and Moe the AD.

Show ended, headed back to cabin for some well deserved rest.  It wasn't met to be.

When we got to the cabin, first thing we noticed was it was cold ad a meat locker.  Second thing we noticed was the bed was covered in soot.  😱😱

 

I guess they didn't fix the HVAC.

 

The pictures dont do it justice, it was a sticky black mess

So we're  on the phone to housekeeping, then maintenance.   Housekeeping came by rather quickly, but didn't know what to do and left.  Maintenance took forever to show up.  In fact we called Guest Services after about 30 minutes.  They wanted to send someone to verify a problem.  Really?

 

The whole time Laura is freezing, so I wrapped her in a bath towel since that was the only thing clean. 

 

Housekeeping came back and asked if they could change the linens.  I said you should probably wait on maintenance,  but they changed it anyway.  Just as he finished, maintenance showed up, opened the vent and dumped more crap on the bed. 

 

So he sent housekeeping away to get a vacuum. Solution is to shake off the blankets, vacuum the ducts, fart around with controls, add filters, remake the bed and come back tomorow. 😬

Do you know Kay and John? They're Pinnacles and on here too. I learned it from Kay on the Brilliance crossing last Nov!

Went to bed around 10pm, 90 minutes after we discovered the disaster.  Found out next day that several cabins were cold.  They blamed it on the cold snap and cold outside air.

 

It was 80 in Freeport,  our cabin is still cold.

Laura has cruised with them several times.  She attended their Pinnacle ascension on Navigator. 

 

Laura was on the Brilliance TA as well.

Overnight the cabin turned into a sauna.  We let our cabin steward know as well as Guest Services, and the Concierge. One vent blows warm, one blows cold.

 

 They worked on it again while we were in Freeport.  It still doesn't work.

Went for coffee at 5:30.  CL still broke, DL machine turned off, Lattetudes not open. Will head back at 7:00.  Ship was very empty.

Headed back to Lattetudes at 7:00.  Got our coffee,  but as I said earlier, staff seemed confused.  Only wanted to do Tall, Laura talked her into Venti.  They were good.  Laura got a Grande later in the day.  Less confusion.

 

Actually met Asst Beverage Mgr in CL tonight and he apologized for confusion.

Chops for breakfast, they opened at 8:00.  Had a small rush and were understaffed.  Our waitress was just overloaded,  Mgr said they did not expect it to be busy.  Maybe he should have helped.  I doubt we'll go back. My omelette was good

I’m curious to where the soot is coming from. Is it getting drawn in from the stacks in the outside air make up?  The way they are changing the filters they should be black. 

 

It would be nice if The Chief stopped in, he might be able to give an answer.  Very bizarre.🤔

I think its build up inside the vents. 😱

 

Loosened by the technicians working on dampers.

Could very well be.  But was in your cabin before they were fooling around with the dampers?

 

Maybe they are just trying to make you feel like home.  😉

I’m afraid that instead of motivating me to book us on Enchantment, it’s working the other way around! 😱 

 

Actually, I am still considering booking on EN, so I’m not letting DH read this! All he would need to see was how cold your cabin was and that would be the end of my plans!

Shes a beautiful ship, don’t let this stop you from booking this beautiful queen. Things happen and sadly John & Laura are in the things happen catagory of their cruise. 😀

It could be worse; not have O3B.

 

Biker, who wonders if OBC will be in the offing for the cabin issues.

How can someone delete a post? !!!!

 

You can't but as long as you are within time limits...you can go back and edit.  Most just post:

 

"duplicate post" or "deleted" 

 

Though reading further down...John seems to know how to do it.  Maybe new option with the new changes?

Since I will be on EOS in a few weeks (in a Suite) I have a couple questions. 

1) What suite # are you staying in?  I will be in 8534 and my Sister and BIL will be in 8532.  If its mine, i hope they have the air fixed by then.  I think my sister and bil like sleeping in a deep freeze. 

2) Is Chops free for Suite guests? 

 

Enjoy your trip...

Ray

John and Laura are Pinnacle.  They could eat in Chops even if booked into an inside cabin.  😉

A mod can delete the post - though I don't know if they'll do it just for asking, maybe you need to "know" one of the mods.

Simeon once called it the “Windy 500”, with all the scooters waiting for the flag to drop. The imagery is classic, espically with Simeon saying it

Yeah, I just edit as "deleted" as many do.  Easy peasy.

Like I said earlier, lots of signage 

 

No one eats dinner in Chops for free, suites and Pinnacle get breakfast there

Thanks for your review John.  It's a little disappointing though to see how things are sliding downhill.   I remember being on the EN a few years ago with John Denton, Hotel Director Extraordinaire.  Now that was a great time.  He always had Captains tables, sometimes TWO.  He treated every guest as if they were his only guest.  He would give gifts at the Captains table as well. I miss him!

We've actually been in your same JS but we didn't have any air conditioning problems thank heavens and I hope this is straightened out for you.  We did have problems with internet though, maybe because we were all the way at the back of the ship.  I hope the rest of your cruise gets better for you!

Me too.  Really miss JD.  We were also one of the fortunate ones to be invited to his "captain's" table...though of course no captain present.  He gave us all gifts of framed photos of the evening.  We had a great time, I was lucky enough to be assigned to sit next to him and loved all his stories.  🙂

I have not seen a top tier on Enchantment  in a while.   I believe they do NOT  even recognize new cruisers who reach Pinnacle on the ship.

Can anyone else validate this. It is news to me!
