BandTJ's Tips

Anthem of the Seas Anthem of the Seas - Book all the special activities on line as soon as possible (the 3 big production shows), and arrive early & book on board the activities that cannot be prebooked (iFly, North Star, Puzzle Break Escape Room), or else you won't get to see them! The ship is very different (and better) than other classes of Royal Caribbean ships, so read up on the ship and activities before the trip so you are prepared. Cruise Critic is invaluable.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Fun & beautiful. Take the FREE shuttle to tour the town, then get off at the Castillo fort (a must). At the highest point in Old San Juan, it is an easy stroll downhill thru the picturesque streets past all the sights, back to the ship. As long as you are going down hilll, it doesn't matter which way you go, you will end up at the port.
King's Wharf, Bermuda - Easy to get around on your own (no excursions necessary). But a pass at the info center and hop on the ferry to Hamilton, a #7 bus to the beaches and then back to the port. A great day at little cost!
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - Vastly improved. You can actually get something eat and drink there now (although the food shuts down early so eat early). The Ocean beach is coral covered in sand, so be VERY careful. The lagoon beach is much better. The pay activities are all overpriced so skip them and the vendors, while now licensed, so better behaved, are still a pain. There crafts are great, if you can ignore there pleas and always cut the first offer price by at least half. Walk away and they will do it for you.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Our favorite. There are some great excursions, but if you want the beach, grab a van to Orient Beach ($7. each way per person). A fantastic beach with friendly & beautiful fish, the best restaurants in the world (you are in France after all), and a gorgeous island protecting the beach form the full effects of the Atlantic ocean.
Celebrity Reflection Celebrity Reflection - If you are prone to motion sickness, pick a different (class) ship or come prepared!
