Anthem of the Seas

March 2016 - Anthem of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Great Cruise

We enjoyed the Anthem of the Seas, the ship is beautiful and well maintained and  the staff was very friendly.  The  overall environment was perfect.

The other guests were also outgoing and enjoyed the opportunity to speak with new people.

The service in the restaurants was quite good.  We ate at Chefs Table several evenings and the chef and server made sure to change up our menu. The server at Chefs Table was absolutely wonderful. 

We are Kosher and every restaurant that we visited made sure we were accommodated.

The Kosher food was excellent when we reserved in advance, but the food that is provided in the plastic sealed trays is completely inedible.

Our cabin was really kept clean and well attended.

The shows were definitely entertaining and the musicals were top notch,  enjoyed the Spectra show a lot and loved the 270 lounge.  We visited the Music Hall each evening after Chef Table and the band was great.

There are a lot of activities to choose from and there always was a chair or lounge available to sit in.

We also tried the spa and the services there were okay.  After you finish a message and are relaxed it is a little obnoxious to have products sold,  there is a big push to sell in the spa.  I had 2 products in a bag and was charged $300 for these 2 products which I did not want but said ok to because of the timing that it was sold to me.  I did return them a day later.

The docking times at port were really precise and we went into every port.  We did feel that the time allowed in Cayman and Honduras was on the short side. 

The only complaint was that most of the staff when asked a question, could not answer or would send us to another person or location for help,  it happened often and we spent a lot of time running around to get questions answered or for service.  There were also constant picture taking which was annoying to us but we assume the passengers really like this.   We checked out the photo gallery and could not believe the pricing for a digital album so we passed.

I hope this information was helpful!

Cruiser281's Tips

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - maybe a good idea to provide additional transportation from ship to port. very long walk and many people can not handle it. there is one big tractor that can seat many people which is helpful
Cozumel, Mexico - its a zoo at the International port and very crowded. Do not bring food or snacks from the ship as they are confiscated
