I love helping people discover cruising. It’s my favorite kind of vacation, and I love it when people are able to use the content here to help them enjoy their cruise, especially their first cruise. I received the following email last night.

“Hi Marshall,

My husband and I just returned from our very first cruise. It was on the Enchantment of the Seas on Royal Caribbean. Before we left, I found your article reviewing this particular ship. The information you gave was spot-on, and was very helpful, especially for a couple of newbies!

We took your advice and skipped the Windjammer until the second day. We got the Roast Beef from the Park Cafe, excellent! We ate in the main dining room (My Fair Lady) every night except for our last night treat to the Chops Grille. The staff receives very high marks from us. Friendly, courteous, and posted everywhere to answer any questions we had. There were plenty of activities to occupy us, and plenty of time to just laze around.

Thank you for your willingness to share your experiences.  When we book another cruise, we will look for your review again!


I love emails like this and I love talking and writing about cruising. If only I had the time for more cruises. 🙂 I’ll publish my review of Disney Fantasy next week, which I’d originally hoped to have for you this week. The AAdvantage news took precedent. Keep cruising!
