I've been watching the port cams to keep my cruise bug going. I've been following Brilliance since she is my next cruise (fingers crossed)  She is behind Enchantment in this pic. I zoomed way in so the detail isn't good. Is this a cargo door that opens on the back of this class, or do they have a tarp draped there for some reason?  I saw outside Grills in Port Canaveral once and watched Divers work on a Freedom Azipod. They put up a tarp like that to protect the ship when they pulled up parts.

This is a permanent feature which I have noticed before.  I could not dig up a photo of Enchantment on my previous cruises on her, but I do have the following photo of her sister Grandeur clearly showing this dark region.  It is an opening in the stern with some kind of large roller or rounded edge at the bottom that I always presumed could be for an aft anchor.  20190702_132904.thumb.jpg.a0aa2e83406269ed6bf02072c7898d1d.jpg

Looks bigger now? This is a picture of EN on our first ever cruise in 1999. The area looks smaller back then or is it just me?

Agree, interesting but been 22yrs since was on Enchantment. Do remember and can see why she'd have Aft Anchor. Back 20-30+ yrs ago remember Tendering off Royal ships more often then ever walking off, this included St Thomas, St Martin, Labadee, Coco Cay. Royal Ships carried own Tenders inc Majesty, Sovereign, Enchantment, Grandeur, even on then new Voyager, Explorer had them.

Since we're posting pictures of the Enchantment of the Seas, here is a picture I took last January (1/8/20) of the Enchantment next to the Symphony in Cozumel.

 

Can you say "tender?" 😄

It is not bigger now, they just put a metall colored plate below the anchor to avoid the rusty look there.
