Lovely two70 bar with great views of the back of the ship
Robot bar always fun
Escape the Future Escape Room, advertised starting Day 2 after it was booked up for the entire cruise. It isn't listed anywhere else on the ship and can't be booked through the app.

AMAZING Anthem of the Seas

Words cannot describe how excited I was to sail on this wonderful ship, I spend a day aboard back in May and just had to sail on her before she repositioned across the pond. Check in (sadly) was a nightmare, there were 4 of us in 2 cabins, we checked in online prior to departure but didn't have set sail passes, maybe it would have been a lot easier should we all of had them, however, all I kept ...

I love this ship. Whilst others don't like the big ships, we found Anthem to be great if you wanted to find a seat! As the decks are all huge, there are lots of little places to sit, most bars are very spacious. I remarked to my wife, where do they hide all the people? On the way back through the Bay of Biscay (or Biscuits as most people call it), we hit a storm. Because the ship is so big, we ...

Having been on the independence of the sea twice, we were looking forward to this new ship (booked before the ship was finished) what a disappointment, no atmosphere, dining the worse we've ever experienced, very repetitive menu, with the exception of a few members of staff, they seemed as fed up as many of our fellow passengers that we spoke to were. The North Star was very good, as was Two70, ...

The poor reviews really worried us in advance, but we should have totally ignored them!! We had a fabulous family holiday! What's not to love about this amazing ship, launched in April at a cost of 1.6 billion? Embarkation was super efficient with scores of friendly staff waiting to greet us warmly, armed with Ipads, luggage was taken immediately and arrived safely and quickly in our ...

Advice: don't elect to board first thing. You will be held in a holding area until called. Wait until around 12:30-13:00 then you will have a quick boarding. We stayed in the Chilworth Manor the night before and were taken to the Port by taxi. Left our car at the hotel. Long wait for taxi back to hotel on disembarking. Ship is huge and quite impressive. Favourite place Schooner Bar but ...

Having sailed on the Quantum 8 day inaugural last year, which was the worst cruise out of 75 i have ever been on, it was with much hesitation that we agreed to share a loft suite (10722) with friends. Normally, my wife and I book inside cabins. From the start, our experience boarding was excellent and all the technology functioned like it should. Once on board, the staff was warm and friendly ...

I must say after reading months of reviews leading up to our September cruise I was a little concerned ....... I needn't have worried as this is a fantastic ship. Embarkation was a dream. From being dropped off at the Terminal, handing over our luggage and quick check in via iPad we were walking on the ship in less than 15 mins. We then walked straight up to one of the many drinks package ...

Won't sail her again. As ships go, they have substituted a lot of public deck area (views, comfort of strolling) for added features not too many people even used. The design is poor, as you can't even walk around the front of ship (unlike Indy) without feeling like you're in a wind tunnel! Robot bar thing is gimmicky and useless. Promenade space is cramped with considering the size of ship. ...

So so disappointed with this cruise. The ship did not have the WOW factor we were expecting, Independence Is far more impressive! Our cabin was on deck 13, on first inspection it was fantastic but we soon found out that we had noise starting at 2:45 am every morning from the kitchens above. After 8 days of complaining and lack of sleep we were given another cabin. DO NOT BOOK A CABIN ON ...

This was our third cruise, but our first with Royal Caribbean having previously sailed with Celebrity and Cunard, both in the past 12 months. We very much enjoyed our cruise on the Anthem and would recommend her to friends, although would probably try a different ship next time just for the variety of experience. For us choosing a cruise just depends on what's going where and when and if they ...
