Anthem needs serious overhaul. This ship must have been beaten up in the storm

Sail Date: December 16, 2016

Reviewed: 5 months ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Sailed in Oasis and Freedom class ships. If you expect smooth sail like the other RCL ships, you will be very much disappointed with Anthem. Especially, if you are first time cruiser, avoid this specific ship. RCL has so many other ships that are much better.

Cabin / Stateroom
Very well maintained cabins. The room attend kept our cabins so clean and crisp all the time.
Ship Quality
Excellent cleanliness - I admire their relentless effort to keep it well maintained.
Anthem design lags, as compared similar sized RCL ships. The Royal Esplende is too narrow; the open concept seem to be missing.
Destinations and Excursions
Except Bahamas (cococay) no thing exciting
Onboard Activities
Be amazed if you could get on the North Star, or iFly.
Children's Programs
Only 3 production shows. Out of which, Spectra Cabaret is total wast of time.
Service and Staff
They are very sincere in keeping up the RCL standards.
Food and Dining
Typical RCL food varieties.


Avoid this specific ship, as it requires serious overhaul. You would not have the smooth sail that a typical cruise ship provides.
