Embarkation - great process, moved everyone on quickly. Only issue was we requested wheel chair assistance for my 87 year old mother. They did provide a wheel chair but I was tasked with taking my mother onto the ship - not easy since we ... Read more

We booked Anthem over a year in advance while cruising Oasis for the Super Bowl. In total 12 of us from age 9 to 82. We live in the North East so we figured save all those plane fares. Well, it took us 5 hours in the car each way just to ... Read more

We LOVED this ship & are all sad to be back home! First impressions were bad because we'd booked the first time slot to board but ended up sitting in traffic for 1 hour at the port! Check in was easy and well organised, I had done ... Read more

We picked this cruise primarily because Bayonne is within easy driving distance of Toronto, and the cost of flights is a major discretionary expense we did not wish to incur. Despite a significant traffic tie-up at the port, embarkation ... Read more

We were a little apprehensive about our cruise on the Anthem after all the negative press she has received lately, but I am happy to say that our 24th cruise was a very successful one! We love being able to go out of Bayonne to avoid ... Read more

We looked forward to cruising on a new ship but it needs a lot of improvement. First the good: it is beautiful; the cabins and shower more spacious than others we've been on. The service was exceptional in the dining room and our room ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze, check-in people met us as we walked in the door. Went through security, they did check my wine bottles, and into the waiting area. We boarded and went to 270 and then up to the buffet. The buffet was a zoo as ... Read more

I have to admit, even this being my 35th cruise, I was a little nervous. This time of year, the coastal storms, and the countless bad reviews. Here is the thing though, I never let other people's bad reviews sway me, but instead use them ... Read more

As I often say, a review means little if you don't know the reviewer's prejudices and personality. So let me say that I'm a frequent cruiser from New York City. I go to the theater frequently, enjoy the NY Phil and dine out way too often. ... Read more
