Enchantment of the Seas as viewed from the airport! Can you find her sitting in port?

A question in early August by my husband - how do we spend our anniversary this year?  Well, I took that as a challenge and got online!  Within a couple hours, we were booked on the Enchantment of the Seas for a 4 night Western Caribbean cruise!  Nothing fancy as far as our cabin - we chose an inside room, and we arranged the airfare ourselves from Cleveland straight to Fort Lauderdale.  At the last minute, a friend of ours joined us.

Upon arrival in Florida, we caught a taxi for the short ride to the pier.  Getting through the security at the pier was relatively easy, and since we arrived early at check in and are able to use the priority line, we were boarding the ship within an hour and a half of reaching the pier!

Our first cruise in 2000 was a seven night adventure on the Enchantment.

  Our daughter and son-in-law's honeymoon was on the Enchantment, and now here we are again sailing this wonderful ship.  What is different this time, and something unique regarding this vessel, is Royal Caribbean International renovated the ship by cutting it in half and adding a new section!  We were curious about this feat, and wondered just what was added.  By arriving early, it allowed us time to reacquaint ourselves with the ship!

A little larger and more spacious public areas are a great asset to Enchantment.  There were more cabins, but the addition of a second outdoor pool, a new poolside bar, flyover bridges on the top deck, added space to the photo area, and other added features down through the mid section proved to enhance the passengers' experience.  We were going to really enjoy our anniversary cruise!
