I would never normally do this sort of thing but i have seen so much negativity about this ship i just find it necessary to assure those of you that will be travelling on Anthem that you are in for a treat. !

I have just returned home from a 14 night cruise and i could not be happier ! Staff superb ! Food excellent Entertainment Excellent ! I had two teenage girls with me who both loved the ship and made some great new friends, we hardly saw them outside of the mealtimes which we insisted upon. The cabins are very spacious and the bed i huge and very comfortable, loads of hanging space, tea and coffee making facilities and a huge flat screen TV with a few decent channels ( didn't really have time to watch it !) The room attendant was first class and a real gentleman. We never encountered a rude member of staff in two weeks, and we met plenty i can assure you.

There were loads of rumours about people being asked to leave thew ship due to bad behaviour etc etc, i didnt see any of this type of behaviour and so made some enquiries of my own. THREE people were ejected ( quite rightly ) from the ship and not the 58 that had been rumoured !! My information was obtained from RCI staff ( nonames ) and is fact and not social media gossip!!
