MS Enchantment of the Seas is a Vision-class cruise ship operated by Royal Caribbean International. She cruises in the Caribbean year round sailing out of Galveston, Texas, USA. She sails two cruises weekly: a 4-night cruise to Coco Cay and Nassau, Bahamas with a day at sea and a 3-night weekend to Nassau, Bahamas and Coco Cay, a route formerly fulfilled by Majesty of the Seas.

In September 2017, Enchantment of the Seas evacuated the company’s employees and their families from Miami endangered by Category 5 hurricane. The ship left the port heading towards calm waters. She returned to the port of Miami when the threat had passed.

Propellers

The two propellers are highly skewed fixed pitch types, manufactured in Sweden. Enchantment of the Seas and her sister ship Grandeur of the Seas are the first two major cruise ships to be equipped with a Dynamic Positioning System frequently used to maintain position while in port, particularly when tender boats are used.

Facilities

The ship's dining facilities include the two-story "My Fair Lady" dining room, the Windjammer cafe buffet, the Chops Grille specialty restaurant, and several themed bars and lounges, including a piano bar. Other features include three pools, a spa, a theater, a solarium, a fitness center, a discothèque, a shopping center and centrum, a teen disco and lounge, Adventure Ocean center, an observation deck, a rock-climbing wall, four bungee trampolines called the "Jump Zone" and the Viking Crown Lounge.

In December 2012, Enchantment of the Seas went into drydock in Freeport, Bahamas and received new features including the Park Cafè, a poolside movie screen, new Centrum upgrade without the flying acts the other Vision ships received, flatpanel TVs, upgraded phone system, Ship wide WiFi technology and other enhancements.

2005 overhaul

In 2005, the Enchantment of the Seas was overhauled. Part of overhaul included stretching the vessel by cutting it in two amidship and adding a 73-foot (22 m) long section. Enchantment of the Seas entered dry dock at Keppel Verolme shipyards in Rotterdam on 15 May 2005. The mid-body extension section was built at Aker Finnyards ahead of time, allowing the construction to be done in just over a month.

The ship resumed service on July 7, 2005, less than two months after entering dry dock. The new section included 151 new staterooms, outdoor trampoline bungees, suspension bridges, an expanded pool area, a 64-jet interactive fountain area for kids, and floor windows allowing an unobstructed view of the ocean below. During its time out of service, Enchantment of the Seas also received an overall renovation, which included paintings by Paul Critchley for the Windjammer cafe.

When the extension project was approved, an extension of Enchantment of the Seas's sister ship, Grandeur of the Seas was also planned, with tentative plans to extend other ships in the Vision class (and possibly throughout the fleet). However, while the Enchantment of the Seas project was successful it proved to be prohibitively expensive, and all future extension projects have been cancelled. Instead, the Voyager class was extended on paper, and the Freedom class was created, utilising the shipyard capacity previously booked for the Vision class extensions.
