Concerning your first question, I'm not sure whether I understand it correctly. See, this refurbishment and "stretching" doesn't come as a "sudden surprise" for the company, so their reservation system has been reflecting the changes for quite some time.
Well, I guess it is a good thing that the Enchantment was going in for a major overhaul. I saw a news item that she was damaged crossing the North Atlantic during rough seas on her way to drydock. Not a very good time for RC lately.
Royal Caribbean has some information and pictures of the proposed changes to the Enchantment on their website. Here is the link:
Hancy, I just returned from Enchantment on May 5th last voyage before dry dock I had heard that the week before there was an engine problem and everything was fine Happy that we were in the Caribbean and not Atlantic when damage happened Hope that crew was okey Where did you hear about ship damage? I would like to have more information I had been on Enchantment in Sept and again on April 30 I loved this cruise ship and can't wait until she returns
the news item was posted at Seatrade Insider (and probably elsewhere, as well).
Enchantment on course after heavy seas
Enchantment of the Seas encountered stormy weather early into its Atlantic crossing from Fort Lauderdale to Europe, where the vessel is scheduled to undergo a drydock lengthening at Rotterdam’s Keppel Verolme Shipyard.
Carrying workers but no revenue passengers, Enchantment hit rough seas on Saturday after sailing from Port Everglades late Thursday night. Five stateroom windows were broken, causing some water damage on decks two and three. ‘No one was injured and there was no significant damage to the ship,’ a Royal Caribbean International spokeswoman told Seatrade Insider.
She said Enchantment is currently sailing in calm seas toward Rotterdam.
