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

If I had to sum up my experience on my 8-night holiday cruise it would be the following sentence... "I wish I had a rented a car in FL and driven home after 3 nights on this ship". The disappointment in Anthem of the Seas, ... Read more

The ship is magnificent! Beautiful, huge, amenities galore: bumper cars, fabulous theaters, sky tour, skydive simulator, lots of innovation. Now the bad news. The food was somewhat disappointing, particularly breakfast and lunch. My ... 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

Never again, this was a disaster from the word go. My wife and I had a balcony suite and could not sit outside at all because the stench of diesel fumes permeated the balcony the entire trip. The champagne flutes in our room had hairline ... Read more

First as we start out Bayonne Port is very efficient as you are dropped off they are right there to take your checked bags. Straight through to security, then a few minutes to get your Sea Pass checked. Then off to the best eight ... Read more

The check in was fast and smooth for our group. I hear after 11:00 am it was a nightmare. The WOW is just not there on this ship. It feels cold and many of the crew were not friendly. The dining is a mess. No one knows what is ... Read more

Ok I will preface this by saying I have sailed 5 cruises before, 3 of them being RC, so I was, up until this point, loyal to the brand. However, after sailing Anthem of the Seas last week, I walked away really quite upset with many ... Read more
