Adventure of the Seas vs. Enchantment of the Seas ?


Recommended Posts

We are booking a cruise from the east coast next year, and both the Adventure and Enchantment of the seas offer the itinerary we are looking for. I realize there is a size and capacity difference in the two ships, as well as no Royal Promenade on the EOT. 

Which ship would you choose?

Funnily enough, I was looking at an AOS repositioning cruise out of Galveston late April 2022.  It looked like a good value, a nice long cruise, and included things and places I have never been before.  1. Repositioning Cruise.  2. Places like, Panama, Costa Rica, and Columbia.

I miss cruising... convincing wife we won't be stranded or quarantined is difficult.

13 NIGHT
Western Caribbean & The Americas
LEAVING FROM:
Galveston, Texas, onboard Adventure of the Seas
VISITING:
Galveston, Texas | Cruising | Cozumel, Mexico | Cruising | Puerto Limon, Costa Rica | Colon, Panama | Cartagena, Colombia | Cruising | George Town, Grand Cayman | Falmouth, Jamaica | Labadee, Haiti | Cruising | Cape Liberty, New Jersey

Thank Gears 🙂 ... We were kind of leaning that way, but since we spend a lot of time at the adult pool, which one has the better solarium area?

The EOS is a Vision class ship that RCL cut in half and added 100 feet in the middle to increase the number of staterooms (this is the only ship they did this too). But...the overall space in common areas did not increase. The solarium on the EOS is nice, you will have more choice of space on the AOS.

Convincing wife starts with looking at how all of the covid cases on RCL ships have been handled since the restart.  Of course, it's all going to depend on her level of risk aversion and flexibility. According to crew member reports many sailings report no covid cases aboard, however some sailings have just a handful of cases and are easily taken care of with the protocols.

1. Escorted off the ship after a brief in room quarantine (depends on when positive test/illness occurs).

2. Put on private plane home OR taken to hotel to quarantine

3. Travel insurance with Covid cover will take care of hotel quarantine costs IF it happens.

4. You are given full FCC for a new cruise in the future once you recover from Covid.

Personally, I'll take these chances any day over going to the grocery store or pharmacy in my hometown. None of those places offer a 100% vaccinated rate for people over the age of 12 and mandatory testing before walking in the door.
