February 25 to March 5 on the Navigator of the seas. Embarkation was fairly easy despite leaving from the dreaded terminal 29. Prior to the cruise, I stayed at the Quality Inn airport/cruise port, which was fine with free shuttle service ... Read more

This ship is an older and smaller ship without many of the amenities of the larger, newer ships. However the staff excelled at making the most of the facilities available. The Windjammer had more selection of deserts, Asian, curries and ... Read more

Chose this cruise a year ago in order to visit Key West and the Bahamas for the first time. Booked a Junior Suite on Deck 8 and My Time dining as early sitting was sold out. Took the chance that flying to Baltimore from Seattle would ... Read more

We are a couple in our 50s. This was our 20th cruise, 3rd time on Enchantment. We live near Port Canaveral so this is a convenient getaway for us. This was our second trip on Enchantment over the span of a month. The weather was ... Read more

Our family was on the February 13 sailing of the Anthem -- the sailing immediately after the cruise from which she had to return to port after hitting a storm off North Carolina, and immediately before the one from which she had to return ... Read more

We cruised on 2/13-2/21/16 on the Anthem of the Seas! Our cruise was the one after the ship had been caught in the storm and suffered some damage notably to the azipods. We were not sure if the ship would be cleared to sail by the USCG ... Read more

We recently cruised with Royal Caribbean out of Baltimore on the Grandeur of the Seas. Our cruise set sail on February 13th out of Baltimore. Before I go into the negatives, I wanted to say that I was impressed with the premium ... Read more

Anthem of the Seas should not have departed on the 2/13 sailing from Bayonne, NJ a few days after the previous week’s sailing through a major storm. Driving to the pier on 2/13 was very discomforting, because up until arrival at ... Read more

Before I get started please check out my other reviews. I tend to be fair and even my best cruise experiences have had a few bumps. How you respond to those bumps will often impact your overall experience. THE TERMINAL There's very ... Read more

GENERAL/”HITS” Anthem is a beautiful ship, with just a few bumps & bruises visible from her ordeal the previous week. Our check-in “appointment” was at 12:30, but I wish we had planned to arrive earlier. ... Read more

We sailed the Anthem the week following the hurricane problems. In general there was no carryover from the storm on our cruise. I will temper my review by saying the we are "senior citizens" and many reading this review ... Read more

I was so looking for this cruise... I've heard that Royal Caribbean was a premium cruise brand and worth the extra $$ we spent...so my expectations were high. Nothing could be farther from the truth.... First.. I want to address the ... Read more

After being promised by Royal Caribbean that Anthem will be ready to go after the infamous "cruise from hell", and the damage was only "cosmetic", we set out for Bayonne. The cruise port was fine as we got there early ... Read more

I have a VERY PERSONAL gripe with RCL. I booked a cruise with them on the Anthem of the Seas for the February 13th sailing. When I heard about the situation with the ship Sunday night on Cruise Critic, I called them and asked if it was ... Read more

Check-in We waited for almost an hour in our cars waiting to get into the terminal in Bayonne, NJ. Surely, there had to be a way to speed this up. In comparison to the Baltimore terminal, there seemed to be more luggage handlers in ... Read more

The good: great food, great wait staff, great ship, great entertainment, and great staterooms. It is really a shame they can't get their act together. The bad: disorganized from the start, embarkation was delayed due to Coast Guard ... Read more

Due to the now infamous "Hurricane Cruise" a couple weeks ago people have written a number of bad reviews. Now I get it. That cruise was hell, but RCCL did the right thing and refunded the entire trip plus gave everyone a credit ... Read more

Although the Anthem is a beautiful ship, we found our cabin steward to be less than attentive; room service constantly got our order wrong (seriously, you can't remember two muffins but you send the butter and jelly that goes with them); ... Read more

Fun little getaway. Nice to get out of the snow and 10 degree weather in Pittsburgh in February for low 70s sun in the Bahamas. The ocean is cold, but bearable for small periods of time. Ship is well maintained, respectable ... Read more
