Embarkation: was a breeze. due to coast guard conducting a mandatory routine inspection, our arrival time was pushed back to 11:30....i never listen. got there for 10 a.m. and i believe we were on the ship by 11:15. disembarkation was even easier. walked right off at 7:15 a.m., grabbed my luggage from Section 18 and through customs and home by 8:20 ... 8:30 a.m. after embarkation, up to the WJ for a quick lunch, then headed to Seaplex to try again to sign up for Escape Room. didn't work, again. however, got lucky and was on bumper cars without a wait. that's always fun. Cabin was on deck ten with the extended balcony. a bit of a walk from the aft elevators but believe me, i needed it and more. i do not think i would get this cabin again only because it's sort of above the "bus stop" (smoking lounge) which is on deck 5 starboard. first night it sounded like there was an argument. and you could smell the smoke. not that bad tho, but i don't really have a good sense of smell. there was always food available. i ate way too much. every single bite was delicious. loved dressing up for formal night. i don't get to do that too often and i'm not a make up wearer so it was nice. that being said, was out of my heels and makeup right after dinner. lol i was with a group of 6-8, depended who wanted to do dinner that night in the dining room. we all got our main entree and would pick another to share. everything was really really good. i do highly recommend the dining room for lunch. the salad bar is out of this world. there is a dessert bar too but i never got there during the lunch. i was always too full. that didn't stop me from getting cookies later lol was not lucky in the casino but i never am. i keep trying tho. lol didn't win a raffle at the meet n mingle either. never do...i keep trying tho lol went to WWRY again and it was fantastic. we did alot of trivia. fun but we didn't win. also did the mystery in Two70. just the two of us. i think we got one clue lol there were groups of 6 so we didn't stand a chance. Service was fantastic. Inyoman was our cabin attendant. such a nice guy. always smiling, would always stop to say hello. couldn't have asked for better. the attendants on deck 10 starboard/aft were all very nice and worked so hard (i'm sure they all do but i only noticed those in my hallway). Gary and Inyoman (different guy obvi) at Sunshine Bar in the Solarium were very attentive, friendly and smiling. Dadang and Michael in the Casino were great too. always had good service everywhere. lots of roving bartenders in the venues this time. i think last time they had to use more staff to clean as Noro was on two cruise before mine and on mine. On a sad note.... no more elevator art. i was totally looking forward to that. and no binoculars in the Northstar. passengers stole them. unbelievable. oh and the artwork in the elevators was removed because people kept defacing it. unbelievable.

Another Great Cruise on Anthem

Cabin Review

Ocean View with Large Balcony
Cabin 2C 10690
a bit of a walk from the aft elevators which was needed. i do not think i would get this cabin again only because it's sort of above the "bus stop" (smoking lounge) which is on deck 5 starboard. first night it sounded like there was an argument. and you could smell the smoke. not that bad tho, but i don't really have a good sense of smell. that being said, if my cabin attendant only did that cabin, i would take it again because he was that great.
