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

This was our 2nd cruise on the Anthem after thoroughly loving our first sailing in Dec, 2015. I picked this cruise because I wanted to see Bermuda's Kings Wharf. As most of you know, we hit some really bad weather and I had a day and a ... Read more

Wanted to try the bumper cars and all ship had to offer. Very disappointing--first drove into a hurricane and almost the whole ship had to shut down due to staff and passengers falling ill. Was compensated $1.96 per person---that's what ... Read more

We picked this cruise because it was leaving from a port close to our home and was only five days. The cruise was a bit pricey for a five night cruise, but thought we are saving on airfare and it is a brand new ship with many amenities. ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ship which was beautiful but we did not like the concept. We had the Grand Suite so the boarding process was fine. We arrived early so we waited about an hour to board (around 11:00). Went straight to Cafe 270 ... Read more

Anthem of the Seas is a wonderful ship with plenty of activities to meet all needs. The cabins are spacious and clean. Dining was a little trouble, as we had to make reservations months before boarding ship. Food left a lot to be ... 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
