Sail Date: Feb 2016
Cabin: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

I feel like the ship is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. We have been on Adventure, Rhapsody, Oasis, and Liberty before Anthem, choosing it as it was the new ship. The ship itself is beautiful. Our stateroom was awesome along with our steward. Loved the extra closet space and layout of the room. We enjoyed all the public rooms, Northstar, bumper cars, etc. The theater was the first Royal theater we have encountered where the balcony was not great, it was as if there was not enough pitch, seats on Deck 4 were much better for sightlines than the balcony. We enjoyed We will Rock you, Spectra is a bit just showing off the capabilities of 270 more than a cohesive show, and The Gift was just odd. The staff throughout was extremely friendly and we did not have service issues in the restaurants.

As always the crux that Anthem seems to have is the food. We enjoyed not having the menus that we have seen at the other main restaurants on the traditional ships. A quick recap of where we ate:

American Icon: Good, out of the 4 probably our favorite

Cabin Review

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin D1

Loved the new design with added storage space. The sofabed is hard but more comfortable then others I have slept on. Loved the bathroom setup. Balcony on Hump so extended, plenty of room.
