What a wonderful
feeling... nothing to do but take a closer look at the Enchantment of
the Seas' unique artwork collection, shop a bit, and drop in on a few
of the scheduled activities.
While I wandered about
the ship, I discovered countless murals, stained glass, and paintings on
stairwell landings, and statues tucked into small niches and soaring through the
Centrum. An art "tour" was a highlight of my day.
Sidetracked briefly, I
watched the Chef's Corner Cooking Demonstration in the Champagne
Terrace and marveled once again at the elaborate artistry demonstrated
not in bronze or clay, but fashioned from fruits and vegetables.
Glancing over the daily
Compass, I wondered why would anyone possibly want to attend a towel
folding demonstration. Aha! More sculpture... this time for passengers
to learn to create the whimsical towel creatures fashioned by room
stewards to adorn our cabins each evening. Pool
games and horse racing highlighted outdoor activities before yet
another artistic demonstration—ice
"Enchanted Tiara" Cruise Sisters
Before retiring to our
cabins to dress for our second formal
night, the Cruise Sisters
gathered in the Centrum for a special group "tiara" photo.
It was hard to think about our cruise winding down, but we only had
one port of call left.
With that thought in
mind, we made the most of our evening, savoring the escargot, lobster
tails, and sinful desserts. Our balcony was a final gathering spot to
watch the sea and look for a reported meteor shower.
Enchantment of the Seas
was the fourth ship to arrive in Nassau on Saturday! Captain
Kjonso backed our vessel in snugly against the pier to much cheering—fleetmate
Majesty of the Seas was right "next door." Oh my... it could
certainly be crowded on Bay Street. No problem, mon. Celebrity
Cruises' Galaxy departed as we were making our way ashore to check out
the new location of the Straw Market.
our shipmates headed for Atlantis for lunch and a peek at the famed
underground "Dig" and aquarium. Even diners have to pay the
admission charge and most felt it wasn't worth it.
heavy hearts, we made our way back to the ship to pack and prepare for
our last night on board. Later, toasting ourselves, our cruise, and
the wait staff who made us feel like royalty, we vowed to have a
"reunion" at sea.
