CRUISE SHIP FACTS

Description
Completed in 1997, this Vision class cruise ship holds cruises concentrating on the Caribbean regions all-year-round. While itís one of the oldest vessels owned by the Royal Caribbean International company, it underwent major makeover in 2005, making it one of the most attractive vessels now for families who are traveling together. Among its top facilities include a rock climbing wall and bungee jumping zone. There are separate lounges and discos assigned to teens so you can be sure that your children are safe. There are also two pools onboard: one for sports and one for leisurely swimming. Passengers wonít be able to keep themselves from admiring this large cruise vesselís three-floor atrium. Despite the elegance of the settings, cruising with the Enchantment is a casual and cozy experience.

Destinations
Unlike its sister vessels, the Enchantment of the Seas only travels to the Caribbean all-year-round. The cruises range from 7- to 18- days each. The best ones are said to be scheduled during the winter season.

History
The Enchantment of the Seas was made for the Royal Caribbean International in 1997 by Kvaerner Masa Yards Helsinki New Shipyard in Helsinki Finland. It currently flies the flag of the Bahamas and its cruise has been concentrated in the Caribbean since it first started operating. This Vision-class cruise ship underwent a serious overhaul in 2005. One of the major changes done on its structure included a mid-body extension. This extension project paved the way for 151 newly installed staterooms and a facility for bungee jumping. Suspension bridges and pools were also added to the ship.

Dining
Eating places include My Fair Lady restaurant, the Jade Restaurant, Latte-tudes, Ben and Jerryís ice cream shop, and the Chop Grille. There are several bars and lounges sprinkled across the ship, and the Latte-tudes is known for its Seattle coffee.

Entertainment
During the day, passengers of the Enchantment of the Seas can enjoy the pool deck and the Fitness Center with rock climbing and bungee jumping facilities. At night, they can go to the theatre and the bars. The casino, though small for a cruise shipís casino, is also a good way for you to kill time at night if youíre feeling lucky. You should also go to the Champagne Bar for live music. There are separate entertainment facilities for teens. There is also an Adventure Ocean center for children 3 to 15 years of age.

Cabins
