I don't know where people get their info, but I read two things about the Anthem I would like to correct. Somewhere I read that there is no more counter check in, you just walk on, which is totally not true. The other is that you need an ... Read more

Chose this cruise because of the sail date and itinerary. Anthem is a beautiful ship and you get the feeling that they are trying to recoup their huge investment in this ship as soon as possible. It seems that every time we sail on ... Read more

We loved our 9-night New England/Canada cruise on the Anthem, which is a beautiful ship. Embarkation day was challenging, due to crowds and some issues with check-in and our cabin (tv, safe, and remote for virtual balcony all ... Read more

We had a great time on this ship and had lots of fun. I didn't like the idea of making reservations for all of our meals and shows. The cruise director was great and all of the shows were great. The best restrauant to eat at was the Grand. ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise because we wanted to try a large and relatively new ship and we wanted to visit New England again. Our embarkation was very easy and smooth but possibly because we were staying in a Grand Suite. We each ... Read more

Embarkation was an unorganized mess of personnel with iPads standing all over the pier both inside and out. You were then instructed to sit with a mass of people regardless of boarding time or status (except suites and pinnacle of course)! ... Read more

Wanted to do the New England Cruise. The food was amazing, Diamond lounge so much fun - they even opened the bar next door. Loved the Bionic Arms. The many dinning rooms made it a pleasure to eat every night. But, they are taking them ... Read more

We chose Anthem because we love Royal Caribbean and wanted to go to the Northeast. I will tell you that reading the reviews scared me a bit. It also didn't help that the Anthem got caught in the Hurricane Hermaine a couple of weeks ... Read more

Sorry, for the lengthy review. Anthem cruise that began on August 25 was my 2nd sail on a Quantum class ship and loved it as much as the previous one. This time around it was much easier as we did not have to battle sleet/snow ... Read more

Sailing on Anthem of the Seas was a bucket list item for us, due to the much different layout of the ship than we have been used to with the Oasis, Freedom, and Voyager class ships that RCI sails. The ship is a wonderful ... Read more

Just off the Anthem of the Seas first New England run (8/25 to 9/3/2016). We do extensive research prior to booking and knew the approval rating was not great, but Cape Liberty is only 30 minutes away so we decided to give it a try. We ... Read more

Although we have lived in Maryland for 21 years, I haven't thought of cruising out of Baltimore because all ships available are small. We selected Royal Caribbean Grandeur of the Seas out of the convenience and destinations to New England ... Read more

Grandeur has one of the nicest crews that we've found in over 30 cruises. They make every minute on the ship so much nicer. You encounter smiles everywhere and they are all extremely polite and helpful. Grandeur is an older and ... Read more

It was our first cruise out of Baltimore, second cruise overall (both with Royal). We were very impressed with getting on and off ship -- very efficient and orderly. It was only an hour drive for us, so I'm definitely looking to do another ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a change to typical beach resort vacations, since our daughters are 10 and 13. We figured they would enjoy visiting new places where we would not ordinarily go. Photos- very important. I didn't purchase the ... Read more
