We are Diamond Plus at 536 cruises. Embarkation & disembarkation went smoothly.
Our second time on Anthem, We chose this cruise because it leaves from Bayonne,NJ. , thus no need to fly cuts down on added expense. We were in a Grand Suite-12646. It was very well appointed. Location on ship could not have been better. We ate quite often in Coastal Kitchen, the dining room designated for Suite guests. It was amazing! Service was impeccable. Our server-Christa- was beyond excellent. She greeted us by our first names, and always had our choice of beverage ready. Miranda- DR hostess - was always pleasant & efficient. The food was always to our liking. We were very pleased with our Dining in Coastal. A couple of nights we did dine in the Grand. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing. Server was running around, had way too many tables to efficiently care for any of them. We dined in Chic one night. This was ok. Just ok.
The Ship is beautiful. We have been on all the Oasis class ships, and I must say that we prefer the size of Anthem.(Quantum class). Easy to maneuver. Lots of pool space. Easy to get seats.
