This was our first time on Royal Caribbean and their Anthem of the Seas was just wonderful and roomy. Service was great and rooms were also. Almost all the meals were good. Shows and other activity was so much to do. Except for one meal and the power blow out in out cable. and their North Star broke when we were going on it. Love the Visual cam screen in the inside cable. Make you feel you have a outside view. Casino was the only negative. The Bar crew would not fill up my Soda cup and very long wait. Prices for drinks were well over $10 each time. Service was very slow and long time wait. There no free drinks like in Caravel or NCL. The machine ate your money without any payoff. You keep playing but bunch of small wins would keep you going till the machine said you had enough. Never saw anyone hit anything. Tables were packed and saw a lot of reasonable good winners. My wife was the player and said it was not good. Machines were recently and some old favors. I hate smoking and like all cruise I been on they allow this and after half a hour I had a burning inside mouth and coughing heavy. I could not enjoy myself there and gave up going back there because it go too nasty with smoke and my cloth smell of the smoke. Sad why they continue allow this for health issue reason. In Bermuda we took a bus tour around the island and the bus drive and guide was a chatty fellow very friendly and full of information. It was a back breaking ride to most of the sites. Going to Lighthouse over looking King Wharf area and driving through made areas all the way up to St. George town square for a 45 minute stop. We ended out trip in Hamilton shopping area with a ferry pass back to the boat. Shopping is upscale and you have to look for what you want. I always love Mark & Spencer from London and a small store was there. In Port around King Wharf her was some site to see but the Mall and Diamond international was the only limit store. Everything else including the glasswork was Ok. If not great but if you do not wanted to travel too far away from ship it will do. Cable Attendant Arunkumar Chauhan we were in room 11-281 was the best housekeeping person we ever had on a cruise. My wife blow out the power in the cable with her air dryer (don't bring your own and over load the outlet) the blower work fine the first three days but blow the TV and outlet and Visual screen. Arukumar to get it fix within hour once we were out of the room. We had great food and service in all the Restaurants we when to (we did not go to the Italian or other pay ones, did not wanted to pay the fee for it). The only bad experience was in Chic where the service was slow and long wait for your plate then it was cold. Possible two large group that were next to us was the cause. Chic Headwaiter came over to our table in Silk the next night and offer his apogee and send a bottle of champagne to our room. Silk, Grand, American Icon and Solarium Bistro and Windjammer (Buffet) Michael Pub ($), Johnny Rocket (Small $) Were the places we visited all great clean and great service. The Royal Esplanade shopping area is two floors 4th and 5th casino was right below it on the 3rd. I got a nice watch on sale. My wife got her 30th anniversary ring for herself. She also got a free bottle of champagne. So we had two bottles to take home. Gift shop was very limit. But wait till the last day when all the shop bring out the stuff at deep discount. That when the crowd comes. I got a few $20 special watches gift to tale home. Duty free and liquor was a large selection. North star ball broke when we came to go one it. They said they will inform us when it working and later in the trip. We never got a message and I found they place use the last day at a time when we had other thing doing. So we never when on it. It only when up and down and did not move. If you go on that do it when you are in port. You get a better view then just water. Flowrider and Bummer Cars/Skate Ring and wind tunnel was very busy so book online before you go. Very long wait. I like to find reading area the Solarium in the front of the ship with the hottubs was nice But I found places quite and with a nice Starbuck read my book and nap a little. Music Hall is your place to go for dancing and fun time. Two70 had a light show. The rock show was a the band Queen music was good if you like their music. The Internet connection with on board Voom was good and never lose it connection. My wife was Facebooking the whole trip with pictures. And texting family. TV was limit to a few channel but the kids had the most fun with Dreamworld entertainment on board and great staff kids and teen clubs About more then half the channels on TV were for kids. Room service come with a small cost and very limit selection. Soda plan it great had my big cup with me. Buffer had a great soda machines and many bar fill it up. Except in the casino. I suggest book all your stuff before you get on the ship. Do a day planner before you go. The TV onboard has when you turn all the fact planner and service at your touch. You check your account and message right there. Before you go book your dinners and rides you want to go on and shore stuff. Have it all lay out don't wait till the last minute to do something on ship. Customer Service and Next Cruise was very helpful and good. Do everything before hand and pay for it. As we did we had onboard credit due to having Royal Carb Credit cards. Our bill was low till we brought high end gifts for ourselves. . I think I cover everything. Enjoy your cruise we did. Read Less
