Nightmare of the Seas
"Our group of 11 (ranging from ages 9mo-60) embarked onto the Anthem of the Seas on May 5, 2016 from Bayonne. I (in my late 20s) personally have been on many cruises throughout the years and have sailed on most major..."Read More

Great cruise, just one complaint.

The cruise overall was amazing. The best part of the itinerary was Coco Cay. What a long way Coco Cay has come. Service was I really great and for the most part friendly. The ship was clean, modern, comfortable, and efficient. You can definitely get lost in the ship, but the app really helps you figure out where you are. Captain Ban and his crew also successfully navigated the rough seas for our ...

I chose this cruise due to the great price I got on a Studio Balcony and the fact that it was a 4 hour drive to port rather than a flight to Florida. The multitude of indoor venues/pools was also inviting considering it was a winter sailing out of New Jersey. This was my first Royal Caribbean cruise as I had only sailed on Norwegian prior. Both cruise lines have their pros and cons. The number of ...

2/15/20 sailing. As many others have said--easiest check in EVER. We arrived at the port at 11:55 AM and was ON the ship by 12:35. That included unloading, parking, walking to terminal, check in. We self disembarked and that was easy as well, will do that always for now on. Just don't pack too much. I carried on 8 sodas and a bottle of wine. DH had a 6 pack of water (we should have brought ...

Family cruise with 4 year old; adjoining balcony cabins

I enjoyed the role of grandparent to a 4 year old on his (and his parents') first cruise - what's not to like about a week-long sleepover. Connected balcony cabins on deck 10, lots of kids on board and a great kid's club. Many things worked really well, but I did find myself comparing RCI with my favorite Celebrity. Ship - huge, so many amenities. But why do you have to charge for so many ...

Cruising the Bahamas? Coco Cay Was Amazing, Blue Lagoon Was NOT!

We'd sailed Princess and Norwegian before, but this was our first Royal cruise. Food The food and service was better on Princess (I still dream of how the most simple dishes like fettucine alfredo were somehow mind-blowing!), but Royal's main dining room food was decent enough we'd sail with them again. The Windjammers Buffet was especially ample and fresh -- and we are not typically ...

Coming in from Toronto, Canada this cruise was a whole new experience. Usually we use the southern Florida ports like Ft. Lauderdale or Miami but we wanted to try something different. It was five of us all together, my wife and I and our 3 adult ages 17-23 daughters. One daughter was on a reading week break from university which made our decision for this cruise. We stayed pre-cruise one night at ...

We booked this cruise for myself, wife and 6 year old daughter. The itinerary was the main factor in booking this cruise as we wanted to explore perfect day and take the little one swimming with dolphins in the Bahamas. We flew into Newark airport the night before the cruise and stayed in a hotel. The following morning was sat in breakfast when the ship popped up on the news. Some passengers had ...

Our teenaged son has gazed longingly at Royal Caribbean ships whenever we've been in the same port. He was thrilled by the size and variety of activities he could see. As a gift to him, we purchased a holiday cruise on Anthem of the Seas since the port was easy to reach and the date worked for his school vacations. The Anthem is a big ship. We logged thousands of steps each day just getting ...
