We do a back-to-back every January/February. Bayonne is convenient so it has been Explorer, Quantum, and now Anthem. She is nice and new but a little too large for our taste. The loss of Dynamic Dining seems to have helped improve the food ... Read more

This cruise was chosen because it left from Bayonne (no air fare) and was a new ship. We had great weather, no motion issues for either of us. One show was cancelled due to the motion, but was rescheduled. Embarkation and disembarkation ... Read more

My friends and I wanted to try a "BIG" ship experience. We seemed to spend a lot of time "waiting", waiting for elevators and/or searching for somewhere to relax on days at sea. Elevators were slow arriving and seemed ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the islands it was going to and it being berthed in NJ. We loved the ship and the entertainment was great. The food just average except for Wonderland which was fantastic. I never thought I could afford a ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it left from Bayonne. We tend to cruise on smaller ships. Embarkation and disembarkation went quickly. The terminal has a place indoors to wait for transportation after the cruise. Our cabin was an ... Read more

With much trepidation after reading the reviews, we decided to book this cruise to get away to a warm climate, visit several ports we had not gone to in the past and the ship left from Bayonne, a 45 minute drive from our home. Expecting ... Read more

Took a southern Caribbean cruise on Anthem out of NJ with my spouse and 11-year-old daughter in January of 2017. We had a fabulous time! The ship always had fun and interesting activities to keep us busy on sea days. Our cabin was ... Read more

We had a good time and enjoyed the itinerary. However, we were disappointed compared to our vacation on this ship last year. My Time dining changes and making all the restaurants have the same menu was not a positive in our opinion. ... Read more

Our cruise was a great experience. As seasoned cruisers we feel RCI and specifically the Anthem of the Seas is a great value. This was our second cruise on the Anthem and as repeat cruisers we found the ship very comfortable with many many ... Read more

We chose this trip as our 10th anniversary gift to ourselves, and the 12 days away from the cold were perfect. We had only cruised once before (different line), and the experience was much better this time around. Embarkation and ... Read more

Love the time away, loved my balcony cabin on deck 9 and loved cruising for 12 days opposed to 7. Weather was fantastic and for me that's important. The nicest part of the ship was the "VIA"!! The Esplanade is too small for ... Read more

While we did cruise on Her last year, she was not our first choice for this year. We weighed the pros and cons (travel to other ports as opposed to sailing from our home state) the home state pro won. We couldn't have been happier! As soon ... Read more

We normally choose a ship for the itinerary. This time we choose the ship. The embarkation process was suppose to be quick, but the IPAD scanners were not working and I believe that the person who did check us was not familiar with an ... Read more

We booked this cruise while on another cruise back in 2015, so we had plenty of time to read reviews, and to plan accordingly. We are fairly frequent cruisers (Diamond Plus with Crown & Anchor Society) so we had a pretty good idea ... Read more
