Enchantment of the Seas is the fifth of Royal
Caribbean's Vision class of cruise ships.  When the
ship went into service in 1997, she had a gross
tonnage of 74,000 tons.  However, in May-June
2005, she was taken to Rotterdam in The Netherlands
where she was substantially enlarged.  Enchantment
was cut in two and a 73-foot section that had been
constructed in Finland and brought to the shipyard by
barge was inserted into the middle.  

   Among other things, this enlargement gave the ship
a larger pool deck and the open decks were
substantially enhanced.  In addition, RCI took the
opportunity to enhance the interior of the ship,
redoing the ship's buffet as well as adding a specialty
restaurant, a new nightclub and an art gallery.  
Another 151 passenger cabins were also added.

   The lengthening of the hull also gave the ship the
ability to achieve somewhat greater speed.

   Enchantment is scheduled to receive further
enhancements during a drydock scheduled for
December 2012.  

   This ship has a good quality contemporary decor.  
The public rooms make use of light colored woods
and fabrics interspersed with polished metal.  There
is a nice art collection featuring a variety of different
styles of statues.  With the exception of the casino,
there is little glitter or shock and awe.

   The style of cruising onboard is the Royal
Caribbean mixture of casual relaxation interspersed
with formal nights. However, in some ways,
Enchantment provides cruising as it used to be.  The
emphasis is not on the ship's hardware but on the
relaxed friendly atmosphere and service provided by
her crew.

    Enchantment is currently offering year-round
cruising from Baltimore, Maryland to the Bahamas,
Bermuda, the Caribbean and Canada/New England.   
In 2013, she is scheduled to change her base of
operations to Port Canaveral, Florida where she will
do three and four night cruises to The Bahamas.

of the Seas
Above: The heart of the ship's
public spaces is the multi-deck
high atrium called
The
Centrum
.

It is a crossroads, providing
access to all of the ship's
major public areas.  In
addition, it is where you will
find the ship's offices such as
the Guest Relations Desk.  
Finally, it also acts as an
entertainment venue with
activities, parties and other
events staged there.
Sitting side by side in the Centrum on Deck Five is Explorations (left), where guests can book shore excursions and transfers,
and the
Guest Relatins Desk, the ship's reception desk (right).

Higher up the Centrum on Deck Seven is the
Crown and Anchor Study (below).  This is both the future cruise sales office and
the headquarters for Royal Caribbean's loyalty program, the Crown and Anchor Society.
Enchantment has 16 cabin categories ranging
from luxury suites to economical inside cabins.
