Chose as to the closeness of our home to port without flying and a nice get away. Found the ship very well kept for the age. Very clean and we could not have had a cleaner room and cabin attendant. The meals are a bit only average ... Read more

Chose the Anthem because it was new and Dancing with the stars recommended the shows, which were all very good including a few surprise shows. The ship offers many activities and the itinerary that interested us. The ship itself was ... Read more

After reading many reviews I was almost tempted to cancel our trip. I am so glad I did not listen. We had a wonderful time. The Embarkation was a breeze, got on board within 15 mins of arriving. Went up to the Windjammer for a fabulous ... Read more

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 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

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

Chose this cruise because friends were going and we love crushing with them. The ship is beautiful but very difficult to get around. There are plenty of spaces to get comfortable and relax besides the pool. Lots to do. Does not have an ... Read more
