Lacking in some areas....
"We left Canaveral a few hours late (again, “unforeseen circumstances”) causing us to arrive in CoCocay a few hours late – but that turned out to be a good thing as the captain extended us a little on the departure, so while our neighbors on the Independence had to pack up and leave, we got to sleep in and had a few more hours and really the best part of the day.I would be sure to have a few dollars handy each time I used one as I doubt Royal includes a server tip on the freebees!..."Read More

We chose to take this cruise because it left from New Jersey (a port we could drive to) and visited Coco Cay. Embarkation was simple as long as you arrived at your allotted time and NOT EARLY. Otherwise you had to wait in line. We got right in and quickly through the boarding process. The expedite children under 12 so that made it even easier for us. Anthem is a great cool weather ship. ...

This was my first post-COVID cruise. Please be warned that masks are not required for those that are fully vaccinated, however, I wore my mask by choice. Masks are optional at Royal Caribbean private islands. The worst was Embarkation at Bayonne. While I understand the process was due to COVID, we had to wait 2 hours in the freezing cold, which we weren't warned about. No refreshments were ...

I am a 66 year old man with over a dozen cruises under my belt. This was my 4th on RCCL to go with 9 on other companies, mostly Carnival. Although this review will be mostly critical, let me say I am not dissatisfied enough to avoid RCCL in the future, I look at the problems that I will detail as aberrations, and not the usual way that RCCL conducts business. Even with the issues I still had a ...

Massive Disappointment

To be clear, I'm a Royal Caribbean loyalist. I have been on 6 different ships for a total of 7 different Royal Caribbean cruises over the past 15 years. I'd been on the Anthem of the Seas previously over the holidays at the end of 2019. I had moderate expectations as the world emerges from COVID, and I understand that industries are struggling to get back to normal. All that said, I am so ...

I love this cruise, I've been on this ship before in 2019 on a very similar voyage, sadly the difference between 2019 and 2022 is very noticeable, while the service on this ship is technically better than other royal Caribbean ships I've been to, the actual ship looks to be a bit worn out as compared to 3 years ago, I am not sure if it was covid or what but things like the great wonderland ...

This was my second time on Royal and first with whole family. We were able to afford it because it was out of Bayonne, NJ so no airfare. Embarkation - great - this port was easy to get into - drove right up, dropped off bags, drove maybe 100 yards to secure parking deck that I think is only for those cruising. Was able to walk right to check in early than the planned time. Cabin - had a ...

I wanted to test the cruise waters post-covid cruising shutdown. The good: RC set up hand washing stations at the entrance to their Windjammer buffet with a staff person directing us to wash our hands in a fun manner; staff enforced the no touch procedures in the Windjammer buffet-offering to serve us immediately; there were many signs posted to urge social distancing; the venues were clean ...

Disappointing Cruise with No Shows

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

We picked this cruise based on the strength of the shows, specifically the Queen themed, "We Will Rock You". Our departure date was on 3/27/2022. Once on board, we slowly discovered that there would be no shows. The first day we were told the app was down and that was why we could not book any shows. The next day, they finally told us that "We Will Rock You" had been canceled. It eventually ...

so have been on many cruises both carnival and RCC and wanted something easy without hassles with covid still here, since I live in NJ ,I decided even though its colder then flying to Florida I would not have to worry between flights being cancelled and covid test where to find etc.So off to the CVS center and 10 minutes later NEGATIVE results and free with your medicare ,off to pack to get on ...
