Poorly Organised

My wife and I really looked forward to this cruise, new ship and new ideas, well we don't think they have got it quite right yet. If you put 4,000 people on a ship then arrive in port after 7am and decide to leave before 5pm, what are you going to get? everyone trying to eat and its chaos. You can make a ship as big as you like but you must organise to suit large numbers of people all trying to ...

A good cruise, but not a great one. Not necessarily a fault of the Anthem

We had a very positive embarkation experience. Pretty seamless and well organised. On board in less than 20 minutes, as a result of online check-in. Highly recommend this method. Very pleased with our cabin....until stepping out on the balcony on deck 6 to find we were overlooking the smoking area. Having taken a lot of time and trouble looking at the deck plans before booking, nowhere was this ...

When we arrived at Southampton the Embarkment process was brilliant , very fast and efficient especially if you had printed off e ticket. We were on the ship within 10-15 minutes. Once on ship could get drinks and food straight away. Balcony room was great and wow bands and sea pass cards on bed ready for use. We choose classic dining at 6 pm and started in the American Diner where we ...

This was the second time on the Anthem this year. We were on the ship for the maiden voyage in April and couldn't fault anything. We had a great cruise just perfect. Our holiday in October was a bit different. Embarkation was quick, and the cabin was clean. I noticed that the ship looked scruffy and dirty in some areas. Windjammer restaurant, tables were dirty and food on floor. One day when ...

This was our second cruise, the first having been 6 years ago onboard the Independence of the Seas. We booked with great excitement way back at the beginning of the year before the Anthem was even finished being built and then found as the months went by all the negative whingey reviews posted about this ship gradually eroded our excitement and happiness until early this summer we were on the ...

Recently returned from canary cruise, this was our 8th cruise with royal caribbean but first on anthem of the seas. The embarkation was excellent, fast and stress free. This is quite a new ship and is very big but easy to navigate your way around. The big plus about this ship (and every other royal caribbean ship we've been on) is the staff, all staff from bar staff, stateroom attendants, ...

The Anthem of the seas is a beautiful modern ship its spotlessly clean and has the wow factor the dinning options are brilliant and you eat in a different restaurant every night, don't bother with the supplement restaurants, Wonderland is lovely to look at but its a rather expensive gimmick chops grille very nice but no better than the complimentary restaurants. Also why has rci decided to put ...

Wife and I (in our sixties) just got back from canaries cruise on Anthem of the Seas had a midship balcony stateroom on deck 10 which was lovely inside BUT had constant noise outside our door from toilets flushing from what I think were toilets on deck 11, this was through daytime and very annoying during all hours of the night. Bars were ok, we thought Boleros the best, Michaels pub was ...

Like so many others we were very apprehensive about this cruise following so many negative reviews here on CC and other review sites. However we are so pleased that we resisted the urge to cancel and re-book on a different ship. Anthem was a fantastic experience from start to finish! This was our 8th cruise, all with RCI on Vision, Radiance, Voyager classes and our first at Diamond level. ...

I've waited almost a year for this cruise, with very high expectations. After seeing the negative reviews of Quantum, I've lowered them quite a bit. My DH was with me, and a couple of friends - first time cruisers, coming with us based on our recommendation. Our cruise was marred by a very big group (almost a quarter of the total pax), which I'll call "The group". I've waited quite some time ...
