Disappointing

As a frequent cruiser, we have come to expect certain niceties when we board a ship. We took the maiden voyage across the Atlantic on this ship and were very disappointed. So much so that we will never cruise Royal Caribbean again. To begin with, we waited over two hours to board. Just too many people. They could not handle us. We reserved our entertainment and restaurants before we left- on ...

I have never written a cruise review before but there seems to be some huge variations in what people experienced i felt it only fair to forward our experiences. Our party consisted of my wife and I who have done about 10 cruises over the last 10 years (5 previously with RC), my step daughter and 7 year old grandaughter (no previous cruise experience). Embarkation was reasonably quick as my ...

Embarkation was a breeze, but only because we were in a Jr. Suite and were able to skip the long lines. I believe being a US citizen (despite leaving from the UK), also made check-in faster. Since we completed everything online prior to departure, we spent only 2 minutes at the counter (no staff with iPads as previously described). Curb side to our cabin in 30 minutes.. the security line was long. ...

My husband and I have been on 60 plus cruises. We have been on several cruise lines and Diamond Plus members on RCL. We will never go on this class of Ship again. Please RCL get some more staff because it's a beautiful ship. Embarkation went good and we went at our requested appointment time. There was not any seats available hardly ever in the buffet. Food in all the no charge ...

Despite having taken many cruises this was my first time cruising with Royal Caribbean. Anthem of the Seas is a lovely ship, but I personally feel that it lacks something! (Fur coat and no knickers springs to mind). I'll start my review on a positive note. All the restaurants were lovely, and I particularly enjoyed the choice of dining venues, coffee shops etc. The food was also very good. The ...

This was our first Royal Caribbean cruise having only ever cruised with Cunard on numerous trips. We have done the Transatlantic cruise on Queen Victoria and Queen Mary so have two comparisons. Our first impressions were indeed wow and our inside cabin with virtual balcony was fantastic as was our steward Alpheus. We had pre booked all our dining and shows and to be honest we liked meeting ...

I have been a loyal Royal Caribbean cruiser for over a decade. This was my first transatlantic sailing and my first sailing on a Quantum-class vessel. I had read reviews and had spoken with others who had cruised on Quantum when she was based in New Jersey but nothing could have prepared me for the most fantastic week aboard Anthem of the Seas. I flew to London Heathrow from Newark on Virgin ...

We are very disappointed with Royal Caribbean. First the checkin was a mess too many people not enough help. The cabin was very nice with the split bathroom,shower was wonderful. Dining The windjammer was a joke not enough tables,when you found a table they were covered with dirty dishes and not enough help to clean up, never went there again. Once was enough. The restaurants were ...

We are avid RC cruisers, only 3 of our last 12 (2013- present) have been on a different line. Pretty new ship but after only 6 months the cabins are pretty dirty already. Hallway carpeting looks 3 years old. Bad weather that is no one's fault HOWEVER the cruise director, Luke, has done nothing to create extra things to do while pools and hot tubs are closed. Limited live music, shows being ...

As a Loyal to Royal Cruiser having sailed all the classes of their ship, the Anthem is a cut above. The venues, were all top shelf. The food, especially at the Windjammer and four no added costs restaurants, Chic, Grande, Silk and American Icon was simply outstanding. The entertainment; We Will Rock You, The Gift, Spectra and the Music Hall were spectacular. Things to do were off the ...
