This cruise was a first for us. We found the embarkation to be very easy. We were greeted and dealt with by a succession of friendly and efficient staff. The scale of the ship is slightly overwhelming initially. There are plenty of great ... Read more

Here is our opinion of this fabulous ship: LIKED+ • LOVED the ship itself. It’s new and beautiful so what’s not to love. • We had a D7 balcony cabin which was great. Lots of storage closets and drawers too. ... Read more

After sailing on Quantum of the Seas in 2014, I wanted to try Anthem. I was anticipating this ship and all of its beauty. The ship itself was beautiful and very clean! After a few weeks of bad seas and bad press for Norovirus, I wasn't ... Read more

After all the hype about this ship I couldn't wait to get on it. I watched videos of it all the time. I don't know if a longer cruise would have given me a better impression or not. I feel like I was gypped. Too many people trying to do ... Read more

Diamond Plus cruiser with RCCL, but have sailed other cruise lines. Just let me say the pre-cruise terminal experience was different and not very well organized. One person telling you to go here and there with no signage. Thank ... Read more

The check in process was absolutely terrible. My husband and I were already frustrated after being stuck in traffic for over two hours, and then got to the chaos of this horrible port. So unorganized! We got through security and were told ... Read more

The ship is beautiful, decor top notch, comfortable beds. Service in dining rooms needs improvement. Bar service, terrible due to the fact that Royal does not have enough bartenders at any bar on the entire ship. For instance 1 ... Read more

We eventually boarded the ship after 3 hours of waiting which was not a good start. We are Crown and Anchor members which usually means you get priority boarding but not in this case. We were told when putting our luggage in that they were ... Read more

Backing up the reviews previously, I can concur that this was a dreadful "taster" cruise for anyone. The 3 hour queue in the sun to board due to "technical" difficulties (which later turned out to be caused by a lack of ... Read more

This ship has seen better days, the cabins, going by ours and others of our friends who embarked on the two day sample cruise were very very small. We had a balcony and it was the smallest cabin we have ever had on any cruise and we have ... Read more

I was a bit wary of cruising mainly due to seasickness experienced on car ferries from UK to France. I decided to take the plunge with my experienced cruiser family. To my delight, I didn't feel nauseous at all. We had a great cabin on ... Read more

At first, I was weary about embarkation. When we first walked through the door there was a large jumble of people in (somewhat) lines in front of Royal Caribbean representatives holding ipads for check-in. After getting in line, it ... Read more
