Commodore Cruise Line

SS Enchanted Isle

Your Rating:Three Stars
Reviewed by:Judy McConnell
# previous cruises: 2
Date of Trip: April 24, 1999
Itinerary: Mexico-Eastern

The Enchanted Isle is a very clean, well-kept, comfortable ship. Our cabin met our expectations. Everything on board was good except for the dinner meals. The dining hall was very noisy - much like a cafeteria and the food was below par. Meats were tough and meals in general were bland. Service was excellent. A good cruise for the money.

Public Areas
Lots of open deck space. Grand Lounge was comfortable, but viewing was obstructed in many areas. Casino was okay - small. Pool area was good. Plenty of room for everyone to have a lounge chair, either in the sun or shade. Promenade deck did not completely circle the ship - front was obstructed.

Food and Service
Food bland and tough. Buffet for breakfast good - not exceptional. Unable to buy alcohol in ship's store for consumption. Say they are a "dry ship". Must buy all of drinks from ship's bars and pay a 15% gratuity. Very strict in allowing alcohol to be brought on board- search and seize bottles to return at end of trip.

Cabins very comfortable. Large closets - two in our cabin. Bathrooms older but larger than most. Shower large enough for one person. Commode was quieter than one from year before on Seawind Crown. No refrigerator. In room movies and news station on TV. On the Boat Deck heard noise from casino and Lounge on deck below, but not loud enough to keep us awake.

Shows on board were entertaining, especially the Ray Kennedy Entertainers - 6 young energetic people. The shows including participation from on board cruisers were a hit. Lounge was comfortable but a little small with site lines obstructed by large poles.

Cozumel had good shopping and so so snorkeling. Roatan had swim with dolphins. Favorite West End beach and great snorkeling, reportedly. Ruins of Copan at Porta Cortes very interesting but lonnnng trip by bus into mountains. Interesting, but very time consuming - 11 hour day.

Who Goes
Middle class America from mostly southern states. Friendly, unpretentious. Lots of octogenarians! Two children. Goodly amount of 50-60 year olds and a smattering of 20-30.
