The Enchantment of the Seas has a fun and friendly onboard atmosphere and excellent food. You have 5 included dining options: My Fair Lady Dining Room and Windjammer Marketplace for all main meals, Solarium Park Café for breakfast, lunch, and late-night snacks, Café Latte-Tudes for snacks, and room service for breakfast.
The cabins are comfortable but not very modern. They include at least two closets, three large drawers, smaller desk drawers, and cabinet space. There are only two power sockets (1 UK format, 1 US format – so bring an adapter) in each cabin, located by the desk. The bathroom (and especially the shower) is tiny.
Among the entertainment options, you have many themed bars and lounges, a climbing wall, and an atrium with shops. Overall, the Enchantment of the Seas offers good service while lacking adventurous attractions, making it a good ship for people who wish to simply relax in a friendly atmosphere and have a good time with their fellow passengers.
We highly recommend arriving a day before your cruise. If something goes wrong, you’ll miss the entire cruise. It’s too early to look for flights now as it’s almost a year before the trip. When the time comes you can use our flight search box below. It will forward you to either Travel-Dealz flight search or you can open our Go2 tool to see dozens of redirecting options.
You can reach Barcelona by the airport close to the cruise port (BCN) or smaller low-cost airports like Girona (GRO) or Reus (REU). From Tampa, you can fly from the local airport (TPA) or you can combine your trip with other Florida cities such as Orlando or the Miami area.
