Enchantment of the Seas is a Vision-class cruise ship operated by Royal Caribbean International.

In September 2017, Enchantment of the Seas evacuated the company’s employees and their families from Miami endangered by Category 5 hurricane.

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 were 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.

Refits

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 7 July 2005, less than two months after entering dry dock. The new section added included 151 new passenger cabins.

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.

In December 2012, Enchantment of the Seas went into drydock in Freeport, Bahamas for a further refurbishment.
