This was our 21st cruise and we chose this sailing because it went to Bermuda and the Caribbean. We had never been to Bermuda and after this sailing, we still have never been to Bermuda. The weather out of Bayonne was 52 degrees and ... Read more

I was on Quantum last year and love this class of ships. Anthem was beautiful and met my expectations. The entertainment was very good and the venues were excellent. Albeit...Spectra's Café was odd and the Gift depressing. The Music ... Read more

We chose this ship because we wanted to experience a relatively new ship with all of the technological innovations. Also we live in New York and didn't want to fly (i.e. add airfare cost) to our trip. Plus we wanted to leave from the New ... Read more

I chose this cruise as the port of Bayonne is within driving distance from Manhattan and I obtained a nice price. I am an experienced cruiser (30+ and counting) but had not cruised Royal in 9 years. Most of my cruises have been from Pier ... Read more

We went on a 5-night Bermuda cruise from Bayonne, the first time the Anthem had visited Bermuda. Overall, we really enjoyed this cruise, our second on RCI, but there were a few issues, though the positives overshadow the negatives. ... Read more

My daughter and I sailed on the Anthem of the Seas from Cape Liberty New Jersey on April 30, 2016. The reason we picked this ship was for the single stateroom with Balcony. This was a wonderful experience. I had stateroom 7250 and she ... Read more

We've been on 20+ cruises with Royal and Celebrity. Anthem pushed us over the edge and I think we're now done with Royal. Food was problematic. Express walk-off was the most stressful one ever (and we always do express walk-off). The ... Read more

Please note: I got a really good deal on this cruise. I didn't know what to expect after all the negative reviews, probably from those who went during the storm, or norovirus outbreak. However, my cruise, and the ship surpassed my ... Read more
