"Enchantment of the Seas"
Views and Deck Plans


         Note: This ship will be renovated in May-June 2005

Sometimes adding inches, or feet, to a midsection is worth celebrating, even boasting about.
This spring, Enchantment of the Seas® will gain a new 73-foot midsection, extending to a total
length of 990 feet and weight of 80,700 tons.

What can you do with 73 more feet? The new midsection will add 151 staterooms as well as
amazing new indoor and outdoor public areas. They'll also be completing an extensive
refurbishment. So come July, an already spectacular ship will hit the water absolutely sparkling
and primed for new adventures. Enchantment of the Seas will offer nothing less than the finest
accommodations, captivating entertainment and innovative activities.

Every city has its downtown. The Enchantment of the Seas has its Centrum.  Seven decks tall, there's plenty to entertain the eye at the Centrum.  Lit brilliantly from top to bottom with each deck's floor to ceiling windows, it's something of a skyscraper at sea.  Marble floors sparkle, lush palm trees stand tall, stairs wind their way to the roof, and glass elevators slide down from the Viking Crown Lounge.  Outside of finding everything from shops, lounges, restaurants, and the Purser's Desk, there are plenty of plush areas to sit with friends, enjoy a cup of tea, and watch the world go by.

A favorite bar is Schooner's, a romantic lounge with a charming nautical motif.  There is the Carousel Lounge for ballroom dancing at night, situated aft with ocean views.  The two-deck Orpheum Theatre is a splendid show lounge for RCI's lavish floor shows, with excellent sight lines from all seats.  Royal Caribbean's signature Viking Crown Lounge is located on Deck 11, popular for cocktails when the ship leaves port or as the setting for late-night conversation or dancing.  Panoramic views are the featured attraction of this 360-degree room, located mid-ship.  The Crown and Anchor Study is a relaxing place to note the ship's position and information from the bridge on screen.  The Casino Royale has all the slots and casino games one could seek and is one of the most popular areas at night.  One bar is designated as a cigar lounge in the evenings - the pool bar is often used for this purpose.  Additional public areas include a shopping arcade with three large duty-free stores, a large well-stocked library with reading area, an Internet Cafe, a cards room and even a conference center.

The two-story restaurant is mid-ship, a light-filled room with plenty of glass for scenic viewing as you dine.  It features a raised platform for a pianist or small ensemble.  While large enough to handle a thousand people per seating, tables are well spaced and the room doesn't feel crowded.  At the forward end of Deck 9 is the Windjammer Café, also with floor-to-ceiling windows, the setting for casual breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as afternoon tea.

Royal Caribbean stands out in its high level of entertainment, including Broadway revues, "name" performers, and comedians.  Lounge performers are also of high caliber and there are venues for dancing plus disco.  In short, the Enchantment of the Seas is a GREAT SHIP with marvelous facilities and outstanding service.
