July 2016 - Anthem of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
The itinerary was nice. Loved the islands. Embarkation was a breeze, debarkation on the other hand, was a little crazy. We pulled into port at 7:15 and we were supposed to be debarking a couple of zones by then. If you have an early flight, don't do it. 1/2 way through the cruise, I started getting bites and they were itchy. SInce we were in the tropics, I assumed mosquitos. I was wrong. When I got back home, I went to the Dr because the itch was so intense. He told me it was bed bugs. Ugh. I had to wash everything in HOT water, decontaminate my luggage, etc. We have been back for 3 weeks and I am still itchy! As far as the dining, there were only 2 meals we enjoyed. The rest were mediocre at best. The Dynamic Dining does not work. We were a party of 2 and had difficulty getting a reservation. Our steward was great. I felt all the activities were limited. Please be sure to book them before you get on board! Tried to book the puzzle room when I got onboard, but it was fully booked. I didn't see it in my cruise planner either. Bumper cars were fun, but it was an hour wait. We were never able to get a chair near the pool. Always available one deck up however. I have sailed 15 cruises now, and would not consider another Quantum class. To each his own.
