We were very concerned prior to getting on this ship with all of the negative reviews. We traveled with our 2 college age children and another family with a high schooler and college age son. However, in some area we were pleasantly ... Read more

We had the very worst vacation we have ever had, and one of the most expensive too! The food was inediable... I am not kidding! The food is exactly the same as a hospital cafeteria, in the buffet, as well as, in the ... Read more

The key to a successful and stress-free cruise on the Anthem of the Seas is making reservations in advance (shows, activities and restaurants). Annually, my family of 18 takes a Christmas or New Year's cruise, so advanced planning is ... Read more

This is my 75th cruise, and my children's 22nd cruise. We are Emerald members on Royal Caribbean and Gold members on Disney. I do not recall the statuses on Norwegian or Carnival. We went on the Anthem of The Seas for a New Year's ... Read more

We chose this cruise since it did not require us to fly to reach the embarkation port, it included a "day" in Orlando and a "day" at Atlantis for our 13-year old son, and the fact that the Anthem is RCI's newest ship ... Read more

We booked this cruise with another family several months ago, then all the reviews I read were so negative I was tempted to cancel. I'm glad I didn't. We had a great time! Our connecting cabins were small but clean. TV and everything else ... Read more

I am an avid cruiser. After 21 cruises maybe I am extremely spoiled to great service and quality. I figured I would try RC after many great experiences on Celebrity. I knew things were headed south from the cattle call embarkation. ... Read more

There are a lot of very in-depth reviews so rather than give the play by play, i thought I'd try to give more of an overview and an impression of things that stood out for us. We were a group of 16 ranging from age 8-55 so we had many ... Read more

This was our fourth Royal Caribbean cruise. We had read the many Tripadvisor comments prior to travel and wondered what we were in for. Right from the dock mobile check in everything went smoothly. Our checker was amazing and the eight of ... Read more

A large group of family (18) for Mom's 90th Bday, most of whom had never cruised. We've been on Celebrity, Princess, HAL and NCL so this is older but nice... Ship was completely sold out- decorated nicely (but somewhat sparsely) for ... Read more

Just returned today from a cruise aboard this floating shopping mall and tourist trap. Aside from the excellent entertainment, it felt like someone had their hand in my pocket from the moment I boarded. Being a foodie and having been on ... Read more

If you've been on a longer cruise before (7+ day), don't take this cruise. I feel because of the length of the cruise, the entertainment is less. Shows in the Orpheum theater were not very good, however the cruise director was very ... Read more
