Cabin #10134 - deck 10 balcony room (just for reference). This is our 3rd trip on Anthem in 7 years. The good on the ship: Waiter in the English Pub was AWESOME! Big happy personality. Nearly all of the staff was very good aboard Anthem. Entertainment (with the exclusion of Spectra) was great. We Will Rock You is a must see. Most of the staff in the shops were very helpful and polite. Bathrooms were always kept clean, food plentiful and mostly good. Loved watching movies on the big outdoor screen... made for relaxing nights by the pool. What needs work on the ship: Went on Anthem 2 years ago - and the same stationary bikes in the gym are either broke or power down by themselves! The gym needs a bit of work in general. Classes are nice but my husband and I like the machines and weights - they have to maintain their equipment better. The Windjammer restaurant - food was good most of the time but by day 5 I was eating cereal for breakfast because the eggs were just awful - food became repetitive. Lastly - clean the balconies and refrigerator in the staterooms before the next guest. Nothing worse than spoiled fruit smell in the fridge. What was bad - attendance in one of the gift shops gave us rude customer service when we wanted to purchase about $80 worth of t-shirts and put it on a credit card rather than seapass. Made us use our seapass because it would be too much trouble to call her manager. Ports: Puerto Rico was wonderful. People, weather, food... just wonderful. Can't wait to return. St. Maarten was very nice just hot as heck. Labadee Haiti - ehh... didn't care for it either of us. Bermuda was nice but would NOT recommend going to the zoo. The alligator was kept in poor condition and plan on reporting the zoo. All in all the cruise was nice - I would recommend.... Don't go to the Zoo for the Bermuda excursion Go to the Frog and the Onion for lunch in Bermuda Tour Old and New San Juan in Puerto Rico - Enrique bus #15 was absolutely lovely! Visit Chesterfields for Lunch in St. Maarten Get a balcony room
