Great overall! Beware of arcade scam

About 3 dozen cruises over the last 22 years. Love the ANTHEM Excellent larger veranda on deck 9. Wonderful stateroom steward, samsudin kept the room clean and freshly made up twice each day. Room was prepared within a reasonable time after we left and samsudin always greeted us by name and with a smile. No review of the itinerary as we have done it so many times. As far as the ...

This was our 2nd Royal Caribbean cruise. We've also been on NCL, Carnival, Celebrity, and MSC. The experience was ok, but compared to NCL and even Carnival, I wasn't impressed. The Good: 1. Most of the staff were very good. The MDR staff were especially good. Our waiter, Naresh, was attentive and paid close attention to my wife's gluten free requirement. She didn't get sick at all in ...

My DW and I cruise out of Cape Liberty the majority of the time because of the ease in getting to the port. We have had a couple of cruises cancelled due to Covid, so this was our first cruise since our Celebrity Equinox sailing three years ago. We love the Anthem, having sailed her four times before. We come from the Catskill mountains, and use Yankee Trails Cruise Express. From the time we meet ...

Background Information: This was cruise #40 for me, and the fourth rime on the Anthem (and third this year). I sailed with my husband and 28-year-old daughter. We booked this cruise soon after we got back from our May 2022 Transatlantic cruise, which we adored. We had made friends with so many crew members on that voyage, and were happy to meet so many of them again. Travel To Port of ...

Great Cruise...With a Few Hiccups

Long story short: Anthem of the Seas is an excellent ship with friendly staff, clean accommodations, good entertainment, and many dining options. It has a number of fun features and activities onboard, which makes it great for both individuals and families. On the flip side, the food quality was very hit-or-miss depending on the venue (further details below). Additionally, this is NOT the ship for ...

RC offered a great deal starting off, that's why we chose this line. We have sailed 3 other cruise lines prior to this and had great experiences. Embarkation went smoothly. There was no difference checking in ahead of time, as opposed to checking in when you get to port. 2 members of our party chose to check in at the port, and their check in was just as fast. There was no benefit to early ...

To begin with, the cruise director said on Day 1 that the ship had reached a record in guest compliment, over 4700 guests and over 1300 children. You'd expect this to make the ship congested, but for the most part, it wasn't. There was such breadth of concurrent activities, that wherever you go, there's always room. Adventure Ocean and the Seaplex seemed to work miracles in keeping children and ...

The Worst Cruise Ever on a Royal Caribbean Ship

I'm a Diamond member only lacking two more cruise, I will be a Diamond +. This has been one of the worst cruises every on a Royal ship. If you going to the Buffet it's hard to find a clean plate and a napkin with silverware. The staff have been the worst ever. The food in the dining room was been great and serves has been great. Chops is great but the Shrimp Cocktail have very small shrimp instead ...

I didn't hate it, but I didn't come back feeling relaxed or that I had a fun time. I honestly felt stressed a lot while on the ship. Maybe The Anthem just wasn't the ship for me. It was too big, too many people and poorly laid out IMO. I haven't been on a cruise in a long time and they were mostly on smaller Celebrity ships. Around 2000 or so people. It's probably an unfair comparison. I'm ...

Not the best itinerary

Could have added an extra port or two . We had one day at sea between both Halifax and Boston and Boston and Newark when it's only 8 hours direct. Could have added Lisbon or Vigo. Entertainment not that great, they spent $6 million on the two 70 theatre rotating tv screens when they could have made the dance floor twice as big. The Esplanade poor set of shops mainly jewelry and watches. No ...
