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 ...

Overrated; Poor

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. ...

I (we) knew what we wanted in a new ship experience and the Anthem of the Seas exceeded our expectations. We enjoy "new" and "different," as opposed to a more traditional sailing (which we also enjoy, but that's not what we were going for on Anthem). We loved everything about the ship. It was beautiful, fun, even exciting, with the IFly, bumper cars, North Star, etc. and we never had a dull ...

Our experience bore no resemblance to some of the reviews we read before we sailed. Check in was done on a tablet and we were on board in minutes.The ship is stunning and beautifully designed. The food in all areas was excellent and dynamic dining worked well. We booked all the restaurants in advance and enjoyed them all so didn't bother with any of the speciality restaurants. Service was ...

just came back from a fantastic holiday aboard the Anthem of The Seas. This ship has everything you could possibly want out of a holiday whether you want it relaxing, exciting or educational. this is our second time cruising as we sailed on the independence of the seas last year, and this ship did not disappoint. Unfortunately this ship is going to be based in America in 6 weeks time. Anthem had ...

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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...
