We chose this cruise because the time was right. I've taken one other Royal Caribbean cruise and it was great! The website claimed that the boat had been renovated in 2016, and I would say, "No way!" The state rooms were dusty ... Read more

We chose this trip because of dates, long stop at Key West, and the price (we got a very nice deal). Had a family and friends group with us, and most of them were newbies who wanted to try a short cruise. Me and DH have cruised fairly ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the time frame and we wanted to go to Key West. The bartenders were extremely slow especially when we had a full cruise. The pool is also too small to accommodate all the passengers. As well as the day at ... Read more

We went on the cruise with a small group. Because we have went on several cruises in the past, we were able to know what to expect, and where this particular cruise stacked up in regards to others. It is solidly at the very bottom of the ... Read more

We choose this cruise because of the sailing dates and price. I have been on 7 past cruises, including 1 with Royal Caribbean and this was by far my worst experience. Our interior stateroom was the size of a large walk in closet. Shower ... Read more

Embarkation: The port is a bit disorganized. Parking is easy. Once in the terminal, the staff was disorganized and there is very little direction. We were on the ship in in about an hour. Ship: Very nice ship. We did not like ... Read more

We went on the March 5 sailing. The food was great, the service was great and the cabin was wonderful. For us, we found the ship too large. It took way too long to get an elevator and there was too many pre-school kids on the ship. ... Read more

The ship is amazing and has something for everyone - this was our 2nd time on this ship we like it so much. The convenience of parking at Cape Liberty (vs. New York City or flying to another port) was tremendous. Boarding and ... Read more

If you have young children, there is not much activities for you to do and if you want to place your young child in care, there is extra charge for 3 and under. Please keep that in mind. The specialty food was amazing. There was an ... Read more

So I decided to booked the Anthem for a Bahama cruise last minute for us (3 months before). I chose this ship because it departed from NJ and we live 30 minutes from port so no flying. We really had fun with the activities like the bumper ... Read more

This cruise fell short of my expectations in many areas. We have only ever had wonderful experiences with RC, have been on the Majesty, Voyager, Freedom, Oasis, & Allure. We plan to sail the Harmony this year and have already booked. ... Read more
