We have been planning to take a New England / Canada Cruise for years. This was a celebration for our 48th anniversary and it couldn't have been better. The Sky Loft suite (10722) was exceptional - embarkation and disembarkation were ... Read more

This is my first review. I did not know Cruise Critic existed until about a month before this cruise. My wife and I, along with my parents took the 9-night New England / Canada cruise. We booked this cruise almost two years ago. It was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of our experience with RCCL and the itinerary. We are avid cruises and have cruised several different lines. We feel RCCL provides the best overall product however we had read some unsettling reviews on Cruise ... Read more

We arrived to Port Liberty very early but check in was flawless. We had an arrival time of 10:30 am but arrived much sooner but Royal was ready for us. We chose Royal Caribbean as our cruise line because we had sailed 10 prior ... Read more

We were on the 9 night cruise to New England and Canada. The Anthem is lovelly ship and all cabins were full with just over 4000 on board. Despite this it never felt at all crowded and you could always find your own space. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to try this ship and these ports. I had read a lot of bad reviews before we went but we could not have had a better cruise. The ship and crew were wonderful. Everyone was very helpful. Our cabin ... Read more

Anthem (Quantum class ships- newest in fleet) have been touted as the 'most technologically advanced ships sailing'. There were many issues with this so called advancement starting at check-in, which was a chaotic mess. They also took ... Read more

I am a RCI Pinnacle with about 100 trips on RCI. This was in all respects a "typical" RCI cruise with their product being fully and ably presented. Serenade, a Radiance Class ship, was "revitalized" in the past year ... Read more

This ship is 20 years old and shows every day of it. It is in need of a re-fit or probably a trip to the scrap yard. Showers are so small as to be almost unusable. Best bet is to go to the spa for a shower. Alcohol prices are very ... Read more

This is my third cruise on Royal. I don't remember much about my first (Monarch of the Seas), but last year's cruise to Alaska on the Jewel set the bar too high for the Grandeur to meet. I'm not dinging them in my review because the ... Read more

Embarkation was smooth. It took about 1 hour from arrival at port to on the ship. Ship although 20 years old was beautiful, classic, generally well maintained. Nice layout with wrap around promenade deck on Deck 5 and Walking track (4 ... Read more

We have traveled with Royal Caribbean multiple times and have had wonderful experiences. The Grandeur is an older and smaller ship so we weren't sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised to find the ship is in excellent condition ... Read more

I chose this ship for the price and itinery for New England. We had never sailed on an RC ship before and it was nice. The ship has a nautical theme with a lot of glass. The cabin was small and all balconies on 7 have the tops of the life ... Read more

First, let me provide the basis for my review. My wife and I have been on 54 cruises. Three years ago I wrote a Cruise Critic review of the Oasis of the Seas and claimed it was the BEST ship we had ever been on. We subsequently sailed ... Read more

We wanted to go on the New England/Canada cruise and I've enjoyed Royal Caribbean in the past so chose this one. I've never been on the larger ships and at first was skeptical, but it was fine. Yes, there were a lot of people, but it ... Read more

We were really looking forward to the new ship, because we have cruised on RC before. The overall look of the ship dose not have the WOW look like other RC ships have. But a cruise is a cruise. The meals were good but did not care for ... Read more

Anthem is definitely among the larger ships and I think it might be better for the younger folk. A lot is offered, but it takes a lot of work and organization to take advantage of any or all of it. We did not like the dining venue with ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports of call and length of cruise. This year we wanted to go to New England and Canada. I never wanted to sail on Anthem after all the negative reviews and I'm glad I did. Overall we had a fantastic vacation. ... Read more

I went on this cruise with my parents in late September. Arriving from Chicago, we had arranged for a RC transfer to the ship. That went well. Checking in at the port was more chaotic than I expected. We had to put some tracking device ... Read more
