Over Labor Day weekend, I got to go on a cruise with Andrew and some friends. We sailed with Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas and visited Nassau and CocoCay in the Bahamas. It was so much fun! I’m excited to share all about the ship, the ports of call and of course, the food!
We boarded the ship Friday afternoon. This was Andrew’s first time cruising! The rest of us had been on several cruises, but this was my first time on this particular ship. After grabbing lunch at the Windjammer, we spent some time exploring the ship.
There is so much to do on the Enchantment of the Seas! They have rock climbing, fun shows to watch, two pools, a gym, and of course, 24/7 food.
Before dinner, the guys hit the gym and I got a drink and relaxed on deck. It was a lot of fun to watch as we left port and began our trip to the Bahamas. My drink, a Pyrat Rum Runner, was a perfect tropical drink to kick off the cruise!
The Solarium was one of my favorite places to relax. It’s just for adults, so it’s a lot quieter and less busy than the other pool.
The Enchantment of the Seas uses “My Time” dining. This means that you can make a reservation or just show up and wait for a table whenever you like. In the past, I was always assigned a dinner time on cruises, so this was really convenient!
The service at dinner each night was so good! I’ve always been so impressed by the wait staff on cruises, and this trip was no exception.
The dessert menu has several options that are available all week, such as this Chocolate Sensation. The rest of the menu changed each night. Did you know you can order as many dishes as you like? I got two desserts almost every night! You have to try them all, right?
Our room was a little cramped with four people, but you really don’t need much room since you hardly spend any time there! The beds were comfortable and everything in the room was very clean and in great condition.
Next week I’ll be sharing all about Day 2 of the cruise! Check back to get some ideas for what to do in Nassau.
Royal Caribbean provided me with an on-board credit and some extras to help me with this post, but we covered the cost of the cruise and anything above the credit ourselves.
