Some of the major things I will cover are
-the ship (Enchantment of the Seas)
-Royal Babies & Tots Nursery
-the dining room with a toddler
-my first C&A Upgrade
-how to travel with a 15 month-old
-random photos of the ship
-food (yes, I know, subjective)
-off-site parking with Radisson
Here's the background information on the trip and us.
Every year my mom and I take a Mother's Day trip. We've previously done the Grandeur (2010), Navigator (2011), and Disney Dream (2012). We skipped last year because my son was only two months old at the time. We decided to do our trip with my son this year. So it was me (30), my mom (55), and my son (15 months).
This was my son's second cruise. You can find my review from the Carnival Glory this past December for information about traveling with a 9 month old by clicking on the link to the right.
We tend to stick with Royal Caribbean because we love the ships and are happy with what we get for our money. They also have nurseries onboard and that's important at this stage of my life. I do branch out to other cruise lines if the itinerary grabs me or the ship is new/innovative. I have my eye on the Getaway once my son is 3!
We chose the Enchantment for a few reasons. 1) It has a nursery. 2) It has newer features like Park Cafe! 3) My mom hates the Majesty and didn't want to go on it again! 4) I was on the ship back in 2008, when I got engaged to my husband.
We're from South Florida, so we decided to drive up to Port Canaveral the morning of the cruise. It's about 2.5 hours.
Tune in over the next few days for more!
