We have cruised with Royal Caribbean exclusively for the last 17 years. We are currently on our 9th or 10th cruise (lost count). We are on symphony of the seas, sailed from NJ to the Bahamas. This will be most definitely our last cruise. The last time we sailed was in 2019. First the good is that the ship is absolutely beautiful, lots of activities, friendly staff, and excellent shows. We are a ...

Enjoyed this ship, even with thorough preparation via you tube, I was still in awe of Symphony boarding. PROS 1. The embarkation process was a breeze at Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey, took less than 45 minutes to wait through security line, check in and then board. Went straight to muster station, was told, "if anything happens... just come here..." hilarious! Cabins were available at ...

Have cruised 8 times, 4th time on RCL. We really enjoyed the megaship was full crowd but oddly rarely seemed crowded. Food way better than expectation's, two nights we had unlimited Shrimp & Lobster tails in Windjammer buffet outstanding. Lunch in Solarium completely different menus from Buffet excellent. Appreciated the dedicated running walking track without other traffic. Gym had every ...

Beautiful ship. Embarkation was great, very smooth. Our cabin on deck 8 was very nice. The staff very friendly and helpful. The food was disappointing, both in the MDR and buffet. Not as good as it use to be? We were put on my time dining, so did not have the experience of having our own table and waiters which was disappointing. We were told we could correct when we boarded but they were very ...

Cruise is terrible. Expect to pay way more once on the cruise. Absolutely nothing included. So u pay fortune for a cruise just to be nickle and dimed the whole cruise. Says has 4 pools but really there's 2 and never open both at same time. Overcrowded is an understatement. 80$ a day for family of for cleaning fees added to your bill. Food was terrible same thing everyday. Everything closes at like ...

In short, I had a blast with my wife and two kids (1yo & 3yo). We are a bit bummed that next year Anthem will be elsewhere. We had a good enough time to book another cruise on RC next summer. Embarkation: As expected, everything RC controlled went unbelievably smooth. The only hiccup was that there were extreme delays with releasing the previous cruise from the parking terminal in Bayonne. ...

First cruise since COVID, and second time on Anthem. Embarkation was so smooth and took the most of 5 minutes inside before walking onto the cruise ship. I really like how you can do most of the check-in online through the APP. Let me say the APP is one of the best. Food I enjoyed the food throughout the ship -- buffet, main dining room, doghouse, cafe 270, sorrento's and cafe promenade. ...

Very smooth boarding procedures, the food was great, the shows were good as well, a lot of activities that made the sea days very fun! My family had a great time onboard. Also not sure if the ship was at full capacity or not but we feel except waiting time on the elevators, all other lines were pretty reasonable. The best thing is the APP, we could check, book or cancel nearly everything on it ...

This was out second time on the Anthem out of Cape Liberty (Bayonne for us locals) doing the 7 day with Cococay. The first time was during Covid, so the ship was at a much lower capacity then and many shows, etc were cancelled or reduced. This trip was the full experience -- the ship was full We are now Diamond+ and have sailed nearly all classes of ships on Royal, as well as most classes ...

This was my first experience cruising (45-year-old female) and I would recommend! I had a single person cabin with a balcony on the sixth floor. My room was very nice and I love they had an affordable balcony option for a solo traveler. I really enjoyed dinner each night in the main room. This is included in the cost of the cruise I recommend the early 5 pm reservation for no waiting. I ...
