December 2016 - Anthem of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas
this was my 6th cruise, my first on Royal. I always heard Royal was top of the line, and although it was very nice, Norweigan and Celebrity are comparable. The ship is new and beautifully designed. The indoor Sea Plex is great for kids of all ages with plenty to do. The pools are great and there are many of them, both indoor and out.The Solarium is one of the nicest I have seen.
Overall the restaurants, food choices and activites are great. There is North Star and surfing.
The negatives are that the crew, although pleasant and friendly, wasn't over the top impressive. The buffet closes by 9pm and the choices for food late night are very slim. The other big negative is that with so many people, activites book quickly and if they have to cancel any due to rough seas, you can expect not to have it rescheduled.
