Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Anthem of the Seas

We chose this cruise because we have sailed with Royal Caribbean several times before and had taken a break and tried MSC and P & O. However, for various reasons we did not want to go back to them so we went back to Royal Caribbean. We went for our Foster daughters 18th birthday. I have to say I was really looking forward to this as i (Mistakenly it turns out) The biggest ship we had been on ...

We are diamond plus cruisers with RCCL. However, this cruise was a wake-up call after the Covid shut down RCCL have cut everything to the bone. The first night 2 untrained waiters served cold main course steak with fries, had a replacement Steak and fries but could not cut the Steak with the provided steak knife so this once again got returned, This happened 5 times on various occasions to me ...

I love this ship. Whilst others don't like the big ships, we found Anthem to be great if you wanted to find a seat! As the decks are all huge, there are lots of little places to sit, most bars are very spacious. I remarked to my wife, where do they hide all the people? On the way back through the Bay of Biscay (or Biscuits as most people call it), we hit a storm. Because the ship is so big, we ...

Worse Cruise Ever

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Anthem of the Seas

So so disappointed with this cruise. The ship did not have the WOW factor we were expecting, Independence Is far more impressive! Our cabin was on deck 13, on first inspection it was fantastic but we soon found out that we had noise starting at 2:45 am every morning from the kitchens above. After 8 days of complaining and lack of sleep we were given another cabin. DO NOT BOOK A CABIN ON ...

Advice: don't elect to board first thing. You will be held in a holding area until called. Wait until around 12:30-13:00 then you will have a quick boarding. We stayed in the Chilworth Manor the night before and were taken to the Port by taxi. Left our car at the hotel. Long wait for taxi back to hotel on disembarking. Ship is huge and quite impressive. Favourite place Schooner Bar but ...

Having been on the independence of the sea twice, we were looking forward to this new ship (booked before the ship was finished) what a disappointment, no atmosphere, dining the worse we've ever experienced, very repetitive menu, with the exception of a few members of staff, they seemed as fed up as many of our fellow passengers that we spoke to were. The North Star was very good, as was Two70, ...

The poor reviews really worried us in advance, but we should have totally ignored them!! We had a fabulous family holiday! What's not to love about this amazing ship, launched in April at a cost of 1.6 billion? Embarkation was super efficient with scores of friendly staff waiting to greet us warmly, armed with Ipads, luggage was taken immediately and arrived safely and quickly in our ...

Overrated; Poor

Won't sail her again. As ships go, they have substituted a lot of public deck area (views, comfort of strolling) for added features not too many people even used. The design is poor, as you can't even walk around the front of ship (unlike Indy) without feeling like you're in a wind tunnel! Robot bar thing is gimmicky and useless. Promenade space is cramped with considering the size of ship. ...

just came back from a fantastic holiday aboard the Anthem of The Seas. This ship has everything you could possibly want out of a holiday whether you want it relaxing, exciting or educational. this is our second time cruising as we sailed on the independence of the seas last year, and this ship did not disappoint. Unfortunately this ship is going to be based in America in 6 weeks time. Anthem had ...

I must say after reading months of reviews leading up to our September cruise I was a little concerned ....... I needn't have worried as this is a fantastic ship. Embarkation was a dream. From being dropped off at the Terminal, handing over our luggage and quick check in via iPad we were walking on the ship in less than 15 mins. We then walked straight up to one of the many drinks package ...
