  3. Anthem of the Seas
This was the 12 day Southern cruise. Filthy ship! The room was disgusting a balcony room! The bathroom had mould in the shower and near the sink! We had to buy our own tissue at port the room didn't have any. The room attendant didn't do a good job cleaning! Basically all he did daily was make the bed and give us fresh towels! I had to tell him after a week please change the sheets and the bed is hard as a rock! Balcony was filthy from previous guests! The carpet in the room looked like it had never been cleaned! Not our first cruise this was number 13 but we will stick with other cruise lines. We both got very ill from the AC in the room the vents were full of 2 inches of dust! Throughout the whole ship it was just very dirty not what we are used too. Buffet area was dirty along the edge of the windows old food crumbs and stains! We both got some kinda bug on this ship and talking to numerous people we were not alone! Might have been because it was a filthy ship! We wiped down everything in our cabin upon arrival. Food in the buffet was gross by day 5 they kept putting out the same food just reheated yuck! We saw them put out the same white rice day after day for 4 nights and by day 3 it had turned a nasty yellow colour from being reheated too often! Just gross! Entertainment was a snooze fest in the evenings. Speciality restaurants, we tried Jamies that was the best service and food on the ship! The steak place was meh, service and food was not worth the money! Shopping on this ship is a joke, no selection and prices were insane! Lots of staff were getting off for vacation when this cruise was done so they were not too interested in working much! Overall this was the worst cruise ever and its the second time with RCCL and last! We paid quite a bit for this cruise and it was like throwing away money! The solarium was packed everyday could never find seats and towel hogs throughout the whole ship and they really did nothing about it. Pool water was very cold. Save your hard earned money and try another cruise!

Dirty dirty ship!
