We had an amazing time on the Anthem! My husband and I (mid-late-30's), our three daughters (13-11-6), and my parents traveled in three staterooms (two balconies and one interior virtual balcony for the older two children). The activities offered on the ship and ports on this sailing truly made for a perfect cruise vacation! Embarkation in Bayonne was quick and simple. We drove in from the ...

Cabin #10134 - deck 10 balcony room (just for reference). This is our 3rd trip on Anthem in 7 years. The good on the ship: Waiter in the English Pub was AWESOME! Big happy personality. Nearly all of the staff was very good aboard Anthem. Entertainment (with the exclusion of Spectra) was great. We Will Rock You is a must see. Most of the staff in the shops were very helpful and polite. ...

We have sailed on Carnival several times, but were ready to take a chance on a ship that left out of New Jersey where we live. The fact that we did not have to book flights and hotels was awesome. We were a group of 49 family and friends. Embarkation was very smooth. We were on the ship in less than half an hour even given the fact that I neglected to print my son's boarding pass. We arrived at ...

We booked a guarantee balcony only a few months before sailing and were very pleased with the cabin we were assigned, under a quiet part of Windjammer buffet. This was my first time on a Quantum class ship and wondered how it would compare to my favorite Oasis class ships. Here is what I found: Some things I really loved, and a few things I really missed. Typically I spend 90% of my at sea ...

A group of 21 family members ranging in ages from 7-69 just got back from a 9 night cruise on the Anthem of the Seas. While the trip was an overall success, we had issues on board throughout the trip. Our group had balcony rooms, most were connecting, and an inside room across the hall from my room. Next to them were two rooms comprised of college aged boys that were loud, ran through the ...

We chose the cruise as we stayed in New York for a few days and were drawn to the itinerary and wanted sail out of New York. The cruise port (once you get there) was good, embarkation was easy and quick, disembarkation was good apart from RC managed to drop and split one of our suitcases, not sure how but they did. The layout of the ship wasn't as good as some we've been on, we missed the Royal ...

My husband and I loved our Anthem of the Seas cruise that we took for our honeymoon! I had cruised previously but this was my husband's first time on a cruise ship. We stayed in a balcony cabin on the 8th floor in room 81030 - I prefer to be closer to the mid-front of the ship and this cabin was perfect. Our room steward Idewa was fantastic! Cruising out of Cape Liberty was a huge highlight! Be ...

We chose this cruise first because it was to cruise out of Cape Liberty. The second reason we chose it was because it was a 9-day trip. We had cruised on a 7-day and a 9-day before having children. Last year, we cruised on the Adventure of the Seas with the children (for the first time) and they loved it, so we thought a few extra days would be great. We had a really great trip and the ...

I have sailed on Norwegian, Carnival and Royal Caribbean. By far RCCL is my favorite. Excellent service, great food, activities and entertainment. On this cruise we booked a balcony (#8572) and was able to book all our meals, activities and shows (The Gift, Spectra, We Will Rock You) ahead of time on the cruise planner. We were also able to book another viewing of We Will Rock You while on ...

We were a group of 10: My husband and I and our two boys (9 and 11), my in-laws and their 2 girls (8 and 10), and my parents-in-law. We had three separate cabins booked. Our family chooses cruises so we can enjoy time together and still have time apart. Boarding and disembarking in NJ was so fast it was almost head spinning. Disembarkation was a little crazy with just the sheer volume of ...
