Just an absolutely wonderful experience from the first moment on board until the last Wanted to sail from NYC area on RCCL. Had been on Anthem of the Seas before and it is a wonderful ship. The Hotel Manager, has created a wonderful atmosphere and a great level of service. The Restaurant Manager has established an amazing standard for dining on this ship which makes it one of the best experiences possible on the seas The only issue that I had was a bad experience with the person in charge of shore excursions. The staff on this ship was simply extraordinary especially in the food services department. The personal touch provided by the officers was simply amazing and made every meal a wonderful experience. In addition our dining room serving staff (waiter & assistant waiter) provided wonderful service and fulfilled every expectation. Further my birthday dinner in Jamie Oliver's was one of the best dining experiences I have had which compares favorably with even the finest dining in NYC The Hotel Manager has clearly raised the standards of all on board and made this one of the best crews on the seas. Our wait staff in the Dining room were the best we have ever had. The stateroom attendant met every expectation. The entire dining room experience was marvelous and I can not say enough about the restaurant management, including our head waiter, the dining room manager, and the Maitre'D. In addition, the ship's Restaurant Operation Manager, is simply beyond words. He not only is personally attentive to details but has created such a wonderful atmosphere among his staff that this is the best run dining experience I have ever had the pleasure of having while at sea. In fact, the service and atmosphere in the dining venues on board the Anthem rival those in fine restaurants in NYC.
