Bad and the Very Good

Hi everyone, I was on the Anthem of the Seas last week. For months and months I have read horrible reviews about everything on this ship, from slow service to the food being bad to the people not knowing whats going on. I am sure you can read the other reviews. I can tell you one thing which was the worse thing about this cruise: The passengers. Not all of them but the loud, frustrated ...

Diamond Plus cruiser with RCCL, but have sailed other cruise lines. Just let me say the pre-cruise terminal experience was different and not very well organized. One person telling you to go here and there with no signage. Thank goodness I knew how the process was suppose to work. For a new cruiser, it would be daunting. Your sea pass card awaits you in your room. I booked a balcony on ...

The check in process was absolutely terrible. My husband and I were already frustrated after being stuck in traffic for over two hours, and then got to the chaos of this horrible port. So unorganized! We got through security and were told to "have a seat" with about 100 other people. There were about 5 staff members with iPads checking people in and taking pictures. There was no organization ...

Here is our opinion of this fabulous ship: LIKED+ • LOVED the ship itself. It’s new and beautiful so what’s not to love. • We had a D7 balcony cabin which was great. Lots of storage closets and drawers too. The best part was the balcony: nice and large with 2 chairs that reclined and footstools (that stored under the chairs) to make it into your own lounger. LOVE THAT. These balconies ...

After sailing on Quantum of the Seas in 2014, I wanted to try Anthem. I was anticipating this ship and all of its beauty. The ship itself was beautiful and very clean! After a few weeks of bad seas and bad press for Norovirus, I wasn't sure what to expect but the ship was indeed very clean. I noticed that it seemed to rock quite a bit, but it could have been because we were going very slowly, ...

After all the hype about this ship I couldn't wait to get on it. I watched videos of it all the time. I don't know if a longer cruise would have given me a better impression or not. I feel like I was gypped. Too many people trying to do the same thing in a short time so you missed a lot. I took my 16 year old grand daughter on this cruise. They didn't get my reservation for North Star & had no ...

The ship is beautiful, decor top notch, comfortable beds. Service in dining rooms needs improvement. Bar service, terrible due to the fact that Royal does not have enough bartenders at any bar on the entire ship. For instance 1 bartender at Solarium bar on Saturday close to noon, the bartender could not possibly keep up, when I asked him to contact someone to get help, he responded that ...

I'm a travel agent so my experience will be different than yours but I wanted you to see what we see. First I was picked up by Motor Coach at Newark. It was a long drive to Bayonne but it's free so beggars right? Once I arrived I was quickly through the check in process and on to the ship. There were no porters to take bags but the flip side.... the ship was only about 25 - 33% full. Food ...

Sneak Peek Of Anthem - Very Impressed

I was part of a select group of people who had an opportunity to take a 2 day cruise to nowhere to preview the ship. I've never taken a cruise before but was very impressed with the experience. Here's my thoughts: 1) The ship: it was beautifully decorated and easy to understand the layout. It's huge, so there's a lot of walking. The water was pretty choppy so we could feel a little movement ...

At first, I was weary about embarkation. When we first walked through the door there was a large jumble of people in (somewhat) lines in front of Royal Caribbean representatives holding ipads for check-in. After getting in line, it exceeded my expectation and went very quickly, we gave the reps our set sail pass, they asked a few simple questions, snapped our pic and sent us on our way to ...
