Service -dining and room were the only things acceptable. Onboard activities like North Star and Ripcord by IFly were impossible to access. You require a reservation for everything and this way you waste most of your time waiting in ... Read more

Both embarkation and disembarkation were a bit disorganized. We had horrible service in the main dining room, the food in Windjammer was below expectations, so we mostly ate finger sandwiches from Cafe Promenade the entire trip. I booked ... Read more

I was so deeply disappointed with this cruise. This was my third RC cruise, and I loved my other two. My goal for this trip was mostly to de-stress and relax, and I’ve found cruising to be ideal for that because of the emphasis on ... Read more

Anthem of the Seas is an interesting option for one that is desiring to leave out of the NY/NJ area. The only other option available right now is NCL's Breakaway. We sailed on the Breakaway 3 years ago with the same itinerary (NYC > ... Read more

This cruise was a Christmas gift and an opportunity for my husband to cruise this ship to see if it was a viable option for cruising out of Bayonne again since the Explorer of the Seas left. Embarkation overall confusing even though I ... Read more

We wanted to get away from the cold and this cruise was really prices nice so we took it. The port selection was not a real winner for me as mach as getting away on a beautiful ship. At Cape Canaveral, you either take a ship tour or just ... Read more

Where shall I begin???? We chose this cruise because it was a newer, larger RCL ship. I have sailed on Celebrity and RCL, as well as a few others, but, this, by far, was the worst cruise ever. The only positive experiences we had were ... Read more

I just wanted a four night cruise to reach Diamond level and found this perfect to fit the bill. The smallest ship in the fleet was very clean and comfortable. It has a certain charm about it that reminded me of our first cruise. Service ... Read more

Short review - You get what you pay for! We didnt pay the top RCI dollars for their mega ships so we cant complain too much about it. Its a very small ship and maybe the worst of the RCI family. If you don't like to walk too far and don't ... Read more
