Royal Caribbean is the best. Very friendly staff, very clean ship, very good,top shelf drinks,good food. The only negative thing was the dynamic dining. We couldn't make reservations prior to sailing or when we got on the ship. Everyday ... Read more

Our family of ten just returned from a five night cruise to Bermuda on RC Anthem of the Seas. We are experienced cruisers but not on anything as large as Anthem. To accommodate kids and grandkids we upgraded to three smaller suites. The ... Read more

Past experience on RCCL has been outstanding. This was far from that. Getting on was easy and painless. The cabin was very good and clean. Depending on where you were on the ship the service ranged from downright poor to above average. ... Read more

Chose this cruise because it left from Bayonne where I have family. It was easy to get to the port and the embarkation process was smooth and quick. I was on the ship in no time. I arrived fairly early and attempted to make a reservation ... Read more

We previously took an RC cruise to Alaska, which was wonderful (as well as a Caribbean cruise on another line), and several members of our 9-person group have taken multiple cruises. I think we all agreed that this was the worst cruise ... Read more

So... some of you had a way different experience than we did. I can appreciate that as like most things in life, opinions are subjective and personal and I would never want to dismiss someones opinion. We had an awesome time. Yes, ... Read more

We chose this ship because it was new, close to home and we had never sailed for 9 nights. The ship is beautiful, the balcony cabins and bathroom are roomy, and it never felt over crowded. The Solarium was my favorite area. Along ... Read more

Big, new and beautiful ship. Lots to do on board, but because there are so many people (6000+) reservations were required almost everywhere. Lots of kids, 1650 on this cruise, many of them out of control. Wait times for the elevators ... Read more

We have sailed from Bayonne several times on the Explorer Of The Seas. Although it is a smaller ship it felt larger because there were not the "Anthem lines" as I call them, all over the place. Anthem boasts a 5,000 ... Read more

I'm not sure why this ship doesn't get much love. Maybe it's the old school want everything on a schedule cruisers or just that this ship gets a bad wrap in the press. I loved it! The Anthem is a gorgeous ship and an easy to follow ... Read more

We chose Anthem of the Seas because we love the larger Royal Caribbean ships and living in New Jersey leaving out of Bayonne is beyond a dream. Embarkation was a breeze - all streamlined - not like the old days. Disembarkation was a ... Read more
