Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony

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.

Ocean View Balcony

Cabin 6D

Balcony needed some work but overall nice room. They should have checked the frig for leftovers.

Port Reviews

Bayonne (Cape Liberty)

Easy boarding. Parked at the terminal. Great staff

St. Maarten

St. Maarten was really pretty, people were nice. WAYYY too hot so be prepared.

Labadee

It was ok. Clean resort area but found people to be a bit rude. Would never visit Haiti again
