Great for families with a variety of age groups. Something for everyone. Elegant, but still fun enough for teens. Younger children will really enjoy the kids club. The staff was friendly and the ship is immaculate. We traveled as a ... Read more

We throughly enjoyed our cruise. (I was worried after reading some negative reviews). The ship was big and had lots of people on board, but we knew that. After day one, the crowds disperse better and you can find quiet spots. About the ... Read more

Wanted to do a NE & Canada Itinerary for a change. Big Ship - Bar Harbor does not work. The Bar Harbor tendering process was TERRIBLE. If you weren't on an RCCL excursion, it took 3-4 hours to get to shore. Poorly organized, ... Read more

Anthem is a beautiful ship, but there were too many people, always crowded because school is out. Food in the main dining room was a bit disappointing. The lobster was good though. Went on a whale watching excursion in Halifax. Not good, ... Read more

We have been on many Royal Caribbean cruises...over 20 and have been on a variety of class of ships. This was the worst Royal cruise by far. The boat was full which we expected and have experienced on many other ships. This time, we ... Read more

We got off the 5 nighter to Bar Harbor and Halifax on Saturday. We chose the Anthem primarily because we didn’t want a long flight. We also hadn’t been to Halifax and were interested to see it. The Very Good Embarkation ... Read more

I chose this itinerary as a surprise for my husband for our 32nd anniversary. Overall, the ship is lovely and modern, but because it's meant for cold-weather sailings there's a lot of indoor spaces which seem to become overcrowded. I think ... Read more

A group of four of us, who have cruised on different ships about 6 or 7 times, picked Anthem of the Seas as it seemed to have many activities and great early summer ports ( Halifax and Bar Harbor).What we didn't know when we made our ... Read more

I went on this cruise because some friends were going. I had no real expectations, but was overwhelmed at all the amenities on the ship, as well as the entertainment, and of course, the food! Everyone on board was very friendly and very ... Read more

It was a short cruise (5 days) going to Bar Harbor and Halifax. The ship was in dire need of updating. The carpets were old and dirty and the furniture in the common spaces looked worn and sometimes had holes in them. The entertainment ... Read more

I’ve had several past cruises with Royal Caribbean to compare this one to. With 1 exception (order from Chops) the food was 3.5 stars at best where in the past I rated main dining at 4.5 to 5 stars. While it is true the ship’s ... Read more

Let me start off by saying bigger is not always better. I have cruised with Royal Caribbean many times in the past but after this most recent cruise I am certainly going to re-consider other cruise lines such as Princess or Carnival. ... Read more

My wife and I chose this cruise, because the port is only about one hour from our home, and we wanted to try one of RC larger ships. The tender experience was horrible. We had to wait in line for tender tickets for at least an hour, to go ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We were in a Superior Ocean view with a balcony that allowed us to view the water the entire trip. It was very relaxing sitting in the reclining chairs on the deck, while listening to the waves. The ... Read more

Itinerary, length of cruise and ship all played a part in our booking Anthem. Embarkation was smooth and quick even though it seemed crowded in terminal. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Ship is beautiful. Cabin in pristine condition with ... Read more

We were dis-satisfied with the tendering process at Bar Harbor. THis ship is simply too large with too many passengers to tender. We collected tender tickets as instructed, and anticipated a 45-minute tender process as advertised by the ... Read more

We like Royal Caribbean and the idea of leaving from a local port (Bayonne) was appealing. We were afraid the ship would be too large but it was comfortable- not at all overwhelming. The food and service were good. We did not like the need ... Read more

Frankly, we were both tired of the hot, humid Caribbean cruises, and this was a nice alternative. The weather was Great, cool, fairly dry and really nice, highs maybe 75 degrees out. Embarkation was quick and proficient, took us no time at ... Read more

The port (Baltimore) is only an hour from my home. I decided to join extended familly members on the cruise. It took me a while to get used to this ship. I'm used to slightly larger ships (not the HUGE ones). But after I did, I really ... Read more

This was our 12th cruise, but our first one to not be in the Caribbean. We have cruised in the past with Carnival and Norwegian, as well as Royal Caribbean. Our very first cruise was ten years ago on The Grandeur, and it is still as grand ... Read more
