Enchantment of the Seas in January

So this past January I set sail towards the Bahamas on the Enchantment of the Seas. Its one of Royal Caribbean's cruise ships. It was my first time on their ships. After all the tomfoolery it took me to get there, whoooo I was so happy to see the boat!
Big ole boat!
Of course once you get to the Port there is security, blah, blah, blah, blah. By this time I was hot, sweaty, stinky, and my pants kept falling off, I was toooooooooo through, plus I was STARVING! I just wanted to shower, change, and drink.

Of course, I couldn't shower, change, and drink first, because on cruises you don't get your luggage right away. So, all I could do was lay funky in bed and silently scream to myself. But I did eat, and it was the BOMB!

One of my plates! Delish!
Now once I got settled and started having fun, I had a blast. I met some nice people and it was nice to see the Bahamas in January. One of my favorite people I met was my personal bartender, he gave me so many free drinks. I enjoyed his company too, nice guy.

Since I've been on Carnival cruise and Royal now, I made a little comparison in my head. First off, the ships on Royal are much nicer, they are big and have nice pretty spaces. Carnival has more to do on their ships though. At times, I got bored on Royal, lot of old people on board. Carnival's dinning room was so much better than Royal's. Steak and lobster were EXTRA.......I was so annoyed at that. Royal's buffet was slamming though. It was good every night, WAY better than Carnival's. Royal's stateroom was awesome, the better of the two hands down.

Personalized fan!
Now, we were supposed to port in Coco Cay and Nassau. We only made it to Nassau. I had a great time, don't get me wrong, BUT I will never cruise in January again. EVER!!!!!! It was windy, it rained off and on, and on the way back the current was extremly strong. People were holding onto walls, falling over and WOW! My stomach was churning the last night. I decided to just go to bed and get ready for the early morning.

Overall, I had a wonderful trip. It was beautiful and a nice break from the real world. Enjoy the pics below. 
True happiness
