Enchantment of the Seas is a Vision-class cruise ship operated by Royal Caribbean International. In September 2017, Enchantment of the Seas evacuated the company’s employees and their families from Miami when they had been endangered by Hurricane Irma. In the 2021 season, the Enchantment of the Seas will operate from Baltimore, Maryland. Home port is Nassau in the Bahamas.

The two propellers are highly skewed fixed pitch types, manufactured in Sweden. Enchantment of the Seas and her sister ship Grandeur of the Seas were the first two major cruise ships to be equipped with a Dynamic Positioning System frequently used to maintain position while in port, particularly when tender boats are used.

In 2005, the Enchantment of the Seas was overhauled. Part of overhaul included stretching the vessel by cutting it in two amidship and adding a 73-foot (22 m) long section. Enchantment of the Seas entered dry dock at Keppel Verolme shipyards in Rotterdam on 15 May 2005. The mid-body extension section was built at Aker Finnyards ahead of time, allowing the construction to be done in just over a month.

The ship resumed service on 7 July 2005, less than two months after entering dry dock. The new section added included 151 new passenger cabins. In December 2012, Enchantment of the Seas went into drydock in Freeport, Bahamas for a further refurbishment.
