Anthem of the Seas

December 2016 - Anthem of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Beautiful Ship

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.

Carnival Paradise

May 2016 - Carnival Paradise to Caribbean - Western

Eat up before you cruise!

Small ship which is convenient and easy to navigate. Older style but very clean and for small ship, had 3 pool areas.  BUT the food was bar far the worst of any cruise I have ever taken.  If you like burgers and hot dogs everyday, then you will be fine, otherwise, bring your own food.  The lunch and buffet items are very, very limited and almost always the same.  The fine dining is somewhat better in terms of appetizers and desserts but don't plan on gourmet dinner options.Sad

Shoelady's Tips

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras - stay in the port unless you have planned excursion. don't consider leaving port if you don't have a plan. it is a very poor country and once outside the port there are many people asking for you to buy something. it isn't really a safe place outside of immediate port.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - very nice port. nice beach that isn't expensive and allows use of recreation with purchase of food and drinks of $10.
Harvest Caye, Belize - absolutely beautiful port- one of the nicest I have been too. shopping is pricey and I feel they should include food and drinks since it is private island.
Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - I would recommend a lower floor - closer to the main activities on 6,7,and 8. Also I would recommend starboard for the sunsets.
