Great: Virtual Balcony is a fantastic add-on for those of us who cannot justify the expense of a real one. Great: Two70 is a gorgeous room to hang out with friends, have a light meal, the bar and the bathrooms are nearby, the view of ... Read more

We chose this cruise since it was close to home and my young adult children liked the onboard activities the ship offered. Loved Seaplex, North star, Flo-rider. Was so disappointed we couldn't due i-fly since they didn't open it on day of ... Read more

We have been on 17 RC ships and We wanted to see the features of this new one. So we flew from Florida to New Jersey so we could cruise to Florida....which makes us a little crazy. We were given a time to get on the ship but it was still ... Read more

Embarkation: It was fast, however instead of giving you your SeaPass, you have to wait until 13h-13h30 for your rooms to be ready. Since it was too cold to be outside, all the guests were cramped inside, walking with their coats and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the size, age and amenities this ship provided and it did not let us down. While the port of departure was so cold, it did not permit us to enjoy much of the outdoor activities for the first day and a half ... Read more

It was completely underwhelming. The cabin was nice and the staff for the most part were amazing. I am sad to say that I had a VERY unpleasant experience with a staff member while leaving the ship on a day we were at port. The staff member ... Read more

We booked the Anthem because we were excited about the food, the ports of call, the ability to roller skate at sea (we do a lot of it at home), the kids club and babies nursery, and so on. The good: 1. Though we don't care much ... Read more

We were originally booked on the Norwegian Breakaway but switched to the Anthem in order to leave from Bayonne instead of New York (Bayonne was much more convenient). I thought NCL and RCI were comparable; I was wrong. Check-in at ... Read more

Decided to take my daughter on a 3 day cruise for her 16th birthday and she had never cruised before. I've never done short cruises but cruising is fun even if it is short. This was too short. It was too short because we only had one ... Read more

Believe the negative reviews. I have been cruising for over 20 years. I have been on bigger ships and smaller ships. Booked this cruise as a last minute getaway and wish I would not have. This ship needs to be dry docked and majorly ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I wanted to sail on these specific dates on a 5 day cruise. It also seemed to be good value for the price. I was aware it was the smallest ship, had a small pool and would not have so much to offer as the ... Read more

What a fantastic trip. Everything was so well planned out. Easy on and easy off. Just lovely. The cabin was perfect, the location was great and the cabin was maintained perfectly. Not a complaint at all. In fact the water pressure ... Read more

Cruised to Bahamas after a few days of exploring New York on the Anthem. Have travelled on many cruises and cruise lines in the past. Royal Caribbean ships have usually been a good choice for a great vacation. We stayed in a balcony ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a last minute get away for my wife to be able to catch her breath after a very stressful (and sorrowful) couple of months. We live in Md., so the ride to NJ was nice and the check in was easy. The ship is ... Read more

3 cabins and 6 people ranging from 52 to 72 years old. We took the train into New York City and then transferred on over to Newark Airport. We stayed at the Best Western Plus on International Way, which was anything but Best or Plus. ... Read more

My sister and I were on the February 26 cruise. Overall, we had a good time but we did find some stumbles along the way. The major problem was with dinner. Our dining room was in the Grande, a really nice venue. Food overall was very ... Read more

We've cruise 5 times now....3 R.C. and 2 Disney. Embarkation and debarkation is easy and R.C. does great job of telling you want you need to do prior to each so you are prepared. Kids loved the kids club (ages 8 and 11). They went every ... Read more

We had a great time last week on this ship. We could have had a better deal on the Breakaway NCL, but chose Anthem for a few reasons. One reason is that during the winter it is wonderful to have the solarium to enjoy the warmth,the pool ... Read more

The ship is just beautiful. The quality of the food and drinks was great, also. The main shows were good. I saw Spectra's Cabaret and We Will Rock You, and I enjoyed them both. However, the live musical entertainment in the bars was not ... Read more

I have cruised over the last 20 years on approximately 22 cruises and so it was natural for me to compare this cruise and ship to others like NCL and Carnival. The standard cabin of 198 sq. ft. was great, it felt more like a hotel room. ... Read more

We chose to book a Jr. Suite cabin and were delighted. It was spacious (can you believe using that word for a ship cabin?) and well appointed. It also gave you access to the Coastal Kitchen which we enjoyed very much. It also allows you to ... Read more

We initially chose this cruise based on price. After going on the cruise, I would definitely pick it based on the service you get from the staff. Always smiling and extremely attentive to your needs. Airy and Toni were exceptional ... Read more
