January 2016 - 12 Night Western Caribbean (Cape Liberty Roundtrip) Cruise on Anthem of the Seas
To begin with age 60 couple, with 30 plus cruises every cruise line,diamond level on rcl , elite celebrity, up there on ncl and princess. Love Bayonne as cruise port coming from Massachusetts it's an easy 3 plus hours trip early morning, arrived at port by 8:30 am into lounge area by 9:30 on ship by 11:30 am, used parking garage right there indoor parking reasonable aroun $200 plus for 11 nights cruise.
Anthem is a great ship with excellent venues for dancing, we went to music hall every night then to boleros, great bands Katrina and Latin band, plus 2 nights of dancing to a Beatles tribute band and a journeys band, could not have been better plus ballroom dancing. Wife did Zumba 5 times, belly dancing 3 times not to mention skydiving, circus trapeze, quest game show, dance parties etc.
food was never good I hope rcl fixes this, because I would love to go again but the dining rooms scare me.
I am healthy not over weight, do yoga daily, exercise, and from day 2 on my legs swelled from salty oily food, I spent an hour every night with legs up wall yoga poses to drain fluid from my legs. Beware if you have health issues, I recommend you contact rcl prior to cruising.
that being said ship activities and activities staff by far best ever, food and staff by far worse ever.
