My husband and I celebrated our 26th anniversary on this cruise. We had wanted to do it for our 25th, but of course, Covid got in the way. We've sailed with RCI before but never a transatlantic. Overall we enjoyed our vacation though there were a few bumpy spots. Embarkation went well. We were dropped off at the pier by my niece which was great since we didn't have to park. We had a 1:00 time ...

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 ...

We are Diamond members and stockholders, however will not go on this cruise ship again! Pros: 1. Very good food. 2. Room service good. Diamond Lounge was good. Cons: 1. Supposed to leave ship on debarkation at 8:15 a.m. finally got off at approx. 4 hours later. Stood in line to disembark for approx 2 of those hours! Many people had canes and a few wheelchairs, however, no assistance to help ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

Where do i begin? From the chaos of not organising the coaches effectively taking us to / from the ship, to failing to top up the soft drinks for days on certain machines, to failing to clean slippery spills in a restaurant completely when the ship was about to enter severe weather (and causing at least one serious avoidable fall), to the captain not caring / understanding that food should either ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
