I am planning a Bermuda cruise for September 2010 but not sure which ship to pick. Any suggestions or reasons for choosing Explorer or Enchantment?

We went on Explorer of the Seas to Bermuda in 2007 and had a great time! We are going again in June 2010, same ship! Can't wait!

I know the Explorer just got out of drydock in January, so she should be in fine shape. The Enchantment is a smaller ship so you won't have the ice rink and the solarium pool and some of the other glitz that goes along with it. But you might get a better deal. I would compare the costs and the distance to the ports and see which one works for you!

What's more important to you; the destination or the amenities of the ship? The Enchantment is smaller than the Explorer, but the Enchantment is a nice size ship. Both ships have a solarium pool. The Explorer being much larger will have more passengers to disembark in port. You'll get off the Enchantment faster. I'd also look at the amount of time each spends in Bermuda.

I booked the Explorer for April 10th. I've been on all of RCCL's ships and I prefer the Voyager Class. I like the Promenade and the Ice Skating Shows.

We will be departing the Explorer on April 10. I promise to leave many "good times" onboard for you Sonny. Have a grand vacation!!!

Sonny!
I didn't even notice that we will be boarding the Explorer the day you get off! I can't believe we'll be sooo close. Why don't you book a back to back? My husband thinks I'm a little odd because I've looked at the photos of your family so often!

Just to clarify something in an earlier post in this thread. I was on the Enchantment back in October of 2009, and it does have a solarium pool.

Dwayne also pointed that out. Sorry for the misinformation, I'm not sure where I picked that up. Fortunately we have a crew of sharp experienced moderators who always set things staight.
