Enchantment for the first time

Recommended Posts

So we sail the Enchantment the first time Feb 7th and are excited just to be away together and on a ship!!  In the last year we have sailed all of the Oasis class ships and the Liberty several times so we are used to a big ship.  Normally we like to get to the port and board early, time to explore the ship, eat, etc.  but not sure what to do this time.  It will be a new ship to explore even if a smaller one so that will be fun.  Trying to decide if we should do our normal and get there early or wait until closer to the rooms being ready time.  What does everyone enjoy doing after boarding the Enchantment??  Just getting excited for time alone with my Love and exploring a new ship!!

Just got off the Enchantment earlier this morning from a 5 day cruise out of Galveston.  This is our 2nd on Enchantment.  Compared to the 3 cruises on the Liberty out of Galveston also, the embarkation onto Enchantment both times were awesome, absolutely no security lines, instant check in, & were onboard within minutes, compared to 25 - 30 minutes for security on the Liberty.  Once onboard, we eat lunch at the Windjammer buffet, then quick walkthrough of the ship.  Rooms were open & available by 1pm, our luggages arrived by 2pm.  

Enchantment is much smaller ship than Liberty & Oasis, but service staff is outstanding!

Debark is the best ever.  Our #5 tags were scheduled to be called around 9:10am, we left our cabin & walked down at 8:50am & our # was called, walked right off ship, luggage ready, 2 minute wait for immigration & customs, we were out by 9:10am.

We are going on February 12. First time on Enchantment as well. Our previous RCI experience is limited to 3 trips on the Liberty.   Any pro tips are appreciated. Especially concerning the kids club. Does adventure ocean pick up the kids at the main dining room at 6:40 pm?  We really liked that feature on Liberty.

I love the Enchantment. In my opinion, it has the best bar at sea (Oasis Bar). It's the only one where you can truly look out at the ocean in front of you. Great service on that ship too! Enjoy!

We were on it once, really liked the Enchantment.  We would do it again.  As for tips: 

 

 The "bridge" on the pool deck is a great place to watch the goings on.  (sail-away, contests, etc.)   In the background in this photo.

We're muster station 3, on deck 5 starboard forward, so 1 must be next station forward towards the bow...

Enjoy your cruise. We have Enchantment booked for March 2020. Last two cruises were on the Liberty.

Would be very interested to read your thoughts on Enchantment, after your cruise.

Please let us know.
