"Now a few basics:
Spacious, lots of storage, good bathroom with shower door (no curtain thankfully) and acceptable balcony which was not huge but big enough.There was only a passing reference to the Covid test (just to check the certificate to make sure it was negative) and no mention of it being supervised or not...."Read More
1-10 of 200 Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas Cruise Reviews for Gay & Lesbian to Europe from Southampton
I'll start with the positives, because there aren't many:
+ The cabin was nice (though it should be for the price)
+ The shower worked well
+ Good for teenagers - plenty of activities for them, kid's pool is open til 10pm and they'll love all the frozen pizza (which is all you'll be able to get after 8.30pm).
On to the negatives:
- Food. This was absolutely my biggest issue. The ...
I am a regular cruiser (Diamond RCL, Platinum Cunard, Elite Celebrity) but this was my first 2 night/3 day cruise, and first time on Anthem of the Seas. This had much more of a "booze cruise" atmosphere and demographic than a longer cruise. There were lots of hen parties, birthday celebrations and children. I had a single balcony stateroom on deck 6 which was perfectly adequate for the two nights ...
Birthday treat for my grandsons aged 10 & 3
The corridor’s on the ship are wide and spacious, not like other cruise ship where they are narrow difficult for pushchairs/wheelchairs
Amazing ship with plenty to do for the older children but be prepared to queue
Plenty of swimming pools life guards are amazing
Food was good plenty of choice, beware Johnny R u have to pay
We only used ...
Wow - our first cruise since the pandemic emerged did not disappoint. We chose this cruise because of the itinerary: Northern Spain (2 ports), Lisbon, 3 Canary Islands and Madeira, places we have never visited before. Anthem is a large ship at 15 decks and about 4500 passengers and is certainly a much different type of ship than the Oasis Class types. Activities aplenty in board. We loved the ...
There are many things to do on this ship, from the amazing shows in the theatre, to fun party nights at two70. This ship really has everything. Although it may have been a struggle to find sun loungers during the day, places like the solarium mostly had a few spaces remaining meaning there was a nice place to relax without the noise of children. The food options on this ship are also lovely. Main ...
Chose this one as we had previously been on Indepence of The Seas a few years ago, It made an impression, we thought would be same. How wrong!
Here's a few moans,
Cabin cleaner would knock on the door before 6pm each night asking if wanted cabing cleaning, even though have a magnetic note which is placed outside door to inform him, he even came into cabin whilst we were asleep before 6pm ...
This was not my first RCI cruise and it will definitely not be my last. I'm a cynic and a critic - but Anthem won me over. One of the best overall cruise experiences in more than 40 years.
Yes, the ship is big - 4,000 passengers might seem daunting. But despite the ship's vast interiors, it was intuitively designed, user-friendly, and had the best wayfinding of any ship - bar none.
Travelling with two older teenagers activities were a priority for us. AotS did not disappoint - bumper cars, rock climbing wall, iFly, roller skating, North Star (observation cabin) and Flow rider - these made the cruise a success.
Food was Ok but not great - we paid for the dining package - and just about broke even, dining six out of the seven days in specialty restaurants. Of the ...
We excitingly embarked on this two week sailing for what we hoped would be a nice way to relax and unwind - how very wrong we were. When we first arrived we had high hopes as we had cruised on the Anthem twice before and had a great experience. The main issue was the many teenagers running up and down the hallways and banging on doors and walls, being rude and intimidating to other guests and crew ...
4th cruise with RC and always been a fan before. First off the entertainment wasn't bad but very repetitive. The band playing in the Music Hall (the Dukes) played virtually every night and Phillippa the guitarist/vocalist played every night in the english pub. Previously you would have had more variety but less music (sometimes nice to have it quiet!). Shows were badly planned with regards to main ...
