I'm also pissed. Mainly because every time we call or contact them on FB it's a different answer. I am getting tired of checking the website every single day! I just want a straight up definitive answer. I am betting it's just a computer glitch and basically they don't know how to fix it. So their front line support is given no answers and we are constantly lied to.

Windjam064   Oct 24, 2016 - 11:10 pm

Angel1312 - you'll have a great vacation! However, don't judge the USA by the airport :-). Happy Birthday!

Windjam064   Oct 24, 2016 - 11:04 pm

Kodak7 - what I was told was the entertainment shows (the 3 of them on various nights) won't take reservations on this cruise. He didn't know why but said it has happened before. It will be stand-by only, just like other RCCL ships. So, queue up before the show. I myself doubt that Anthem can handle the waiting crowds property (I don't think the ship has waiting areas though of when it was designed) , but we'll see. The NorthStar and iFly you still book in advance. This weird snafu is certainly not communicated well but if this is the worst screw up I am facing then I am going to have an awesome cruise.

npierre890   Oct 24, 2016 - 10:57 pm

Do not get discourage and Don't think they are pursposely doing this to us Dec 9th sailors. It is not saving them any money by not posting our entertainment. There must be some technical issue or something. Hopefully when we are at our 30 day mark and if not, I plan to reserve the activities as soon as I board the ship.

Windjam064   Oct 24, 2016 - 10:51 pm

When I called they said there can be cases when entertainment can't be booked and this might be one of them. He said that it looks like this ship won't have reservations for the shows and it will be stand-by like other RCCL ships, which is fine with me. Denise44, I don't mean any disrespect but if this really irks you then this might not be the cruise for you. Cruises are what you make of them. For myself, I never had to reserve shows on any other ship and I'm a bit relieved that I won't have to here. If you have your NorthStar and iFly reserved then you'll be fine. The only thing they haven't (and apparently won't) opened up are the three shows. The Puzzle Room, Bumper Cars and the like are reserved on the ship as normal.

denise44   Oct 24, 2016 - 9:29 pm

Really starting to rethink royal Caribbean! Still no entertainment for Dec 9th. Their response keep checking. I think it's time to stick with Carnival. Not worth the dedication. 13 the cruise and not starting off on a good foot.

kodak7   Oct 24, 2016 - 12:40 am

This is getting Crazy. The one thing you see/learn on Ship Mate is you can't wait until getting on Athem to book your shows. My other RCCL cruise, the headliner show was by muster station. Of course it was on a day at Port. Wasn't going to miss a day in Bermuda to see the show. Not liking this at all.

rosens76   Oct 23, 2016 - 6:25 pm

Omg!! This sooooo freaking frustrating!!!! It's just wrong how they are handling this. I can only afford to take my kids (10yrs and 15yrs) on vacation every few years and want to make sure we can make the most of it. If we don't get to see the shows be of this BS...customer service on the ship is gonna have one pissed off Momma to deal with!!!! 😠

jdwix   Oct 22, 2016 - 3:48 pm

Yep. The more people that keep contacting support, maybe then they will actually fix it or change the process. I almost think they shouldn't have opened dinning reservations if they don't have entertainment open yet. Maybe it should be all or nothing. But no matter what still gonna be some long lines at customer service on the ship if they don't fix it.

pacotaco23   Oct 21, 2016 - 9:42 pm

I've been seeing the book on board thing for while. they r really gonna piss alot more ppl off especially bc all the other times around ours rnt having any problems. Just keep blowing them up they will get sick of it

Windjam064   Oct 21, 2016 - 12:40 pm

Jdwix, I was worried about having to book on ship but the agent said that (at this point) entertainment will be all open seating like on other ships. No booking. He didn't know the issues causing this

jdwix   Oct 21, 2016 - 11:07 am

Windjam064, yeah seeing the same message as you now. Please book on the ship. I just hope they fix what ever the problem is.

jdwix   Oct 21, 2016 - 11:04 am

Why is the Anthem December 9th 2016 entertainment still not available?!? I keep calling each week and keep getting lied to. I don't want to hear just wait till 60 days left or just wait another 7 more days. That is a bullshit answer. Please call your own damn ship and find out what the real holdup is and get back to us... PLEASE!!! Dinning is filling up and you guys keep comming back with no real answer. It's 49 days left till the cruise now and you have people able to book entertainment on all kinds of other dates for anthem all the way into February.

We're sorry to hear this, Josiah. We're looking into this matter for you. We'll be in touch shortly.

12hrs later

Thanks for your patience, Josiah. Entertainment is currently unavailable for all guests on this sailing due to some last minute changes. As soon as the scheduling is completed by our Entertainment department, the shows will be available to reserve. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

jdwix   Oct 21, 2016 - 11:03 am

I decided to contact them again, this time through FB like pactaco23 did. I am not one to be rude to support. But this is getting ridiculous. Here is what they said.

Windjam064   Oct 21, 2016 - 6:40 am

I notice that the message that comes up on the Cruise Planner has changed to "book on the ship" (or something like that)

jdwix   Oct 20, 2016 - 9:07 pm

I went ahead and just booked earlier dinners. Hopefully no conflicts with entertainment..

jdwix   Oct 20, 2016 - 9:07 pm

I really hope they are actually "working" on it...

denise44   Oct 20, 2016 - 8:37 pm

This is crazy!

pacotaco23   Oct 20, 2016 - 7:57 pm

I messaged their fb and gave me the same answer everyone gets when they call we r working on it ina week check back with us again. so don't waste ur time calling just message their fb instead of waiting to talk to someone

angel1312   Oct 20, 2016 - 6:44 pm

Me too. I'm so excited. It's my 50th birthday. I'm from England and never been to USA and on a cruise

jdwix   Oct 17, 2016 - 9:23 pm

53 days left now and still no entertainment?!?

npierre890   Oct 15, 2016 - 10:41 pm

Yayyyy me to....That's all my family and I can think of is our upcoming cruise

IzaBella   Oct 12, 2016 - 8:32 pm

Thanks 😀jdwix

jdwix   Oct 12, 2016 - 2:13 am

I'm guessing there will be some confusion with going back to old dinning rules but with 4 separate dinning rooms instead of one giant multi level one. But typically the old multi level dinning halls, one floor was dedicated to classic and the other floor mytime. I also loved the little show the waitstaff would put on, but I guess we now have 270 to make up for that ;-)

jdwix   Oct 12, 2016 - 2:06 am

You can make reservations online. However as of Nov 27th sailings it's now back to mytime dinning. So you will be limited to just one of the 4 main free dinning rooms. They will all serve the same menu. 2 of them are for classic fixed time dinning, and the other 2 are my time dinning. I don't know what criteria they will use to then assign you to a resturant from there. It might be something random they print on your room card, not really certain..

IzaBella   Oct 11, 2016 - 9:14 pm

I can't wait:) happy to see all Christmas decorations and have some rest before busy family time

IzaBella   Oct 11, 2016 - 9:09 pm

Could you tell me about dinner reservations? How to do to be in all 4 complimentary restaurant?

deannarusso   Oct 10, 2016 - 4:22 pm

Exactly! That's my concern too about the dinner times

pacotaco23   Oct 10, 2016 - 4:20 pm

Yeah this is super frustrating it'd be nice to know the times at least to be able to switch dinner if we have to

jdwix   Oct 10, 2016 - 4:16 pm

Ugh... Yeah someone on the forums here I think dec23rd sailing said theirs opened up over a month ago. Don't know why our sailing is having such a problem.

Windjam064   Oct 10, 2016 - 4:04 pm

I called them this morning. I got the answer I expected. He said that they see the same that we see but he looked in and said I should try back in 7 days. I asked if he could book the show for me and he said he couldn't, that it wasn't open yet. What is funny us my February Anthem cruise has some shows listed (although no dates). I will keep trying like you all.

denise44   Oct 10, 2016 - 3:55 pm

I've been checking everyday too. Frustrating

jdwix   Oct 10, 2016 - 2:46 pm

Same here. When I called a couple weeks ago they told me 60days out. But maybe something else is going on.

deannarusso   Oct 10, 2016 - 2:29 pm

60 days away and we still can't book entertainment?

angel1312   Oct 07, 2016 - 9:29 pm

Any of you on Facebook. Had me has a friend. Xx

lisarose   Oct 03, 2016 - 7:17 pm

Me and hubby...time needed to recharge our batteries!!!! Can't wait!

denise44   Oct 02, 2016 - 5:53 pm

Does anyone have a photo of cabin 11510? Ty

pacotaco23   Oct 02, 2016 - 1:58 pm

Sweet thanks

jdwix   Oct 01, 2016 - 8:43 pm

I called a couple days ago and they reached out to the ships coordinator whom said entertainment should open up at 60days out for us. Idk why some of the later cruises are supposedly already open.

denise44   Oct 01, 2016 - 11:56 am

I booked the ifly a while back and it was all booked up until the last day.

Windjam064   Oct 01, 2016 - 2:20 am

I was able to book iFly, NorthStar and specialty restaurants at the 90 day point too but that was it.

littletaipei   Sep 30, 2016 - 10:06 pm

Nope! Can't book I fly either :(

kodak7   Sep 30, 2016 - 9:34 pm

But better book Northstar and iFly now as it's been open for a few weeks now. Keep checking for the other entertainment venues. 60 days out soon.

Windjam064   Sep 30, 2016 - 7:34 pm

Nope but I will try at the 60 day mark

Grammie3   Sep 30, 2016 - 7:09 pm

Nope... I started checking when we were at 120 days till cruising, as I has read on other ships could book entertainment then, but still nothing

pacotaco23   Sep 30, 2016 - 6:45 pm

Anyone get to book entertainment yet

Marysy   Sep 29, 2016 - 4:51 pm

The Hilton garden inn on Staten Island. Stay one night, leave your car and they shuttle you to and from the ship. Parking at the pier is $20 a day

denise44   Sep 29, 2016 - 4:30 pm

Does anyone know of any hotel that offers the stay and park in the bayone area? I know in baltimore you can
Stay a night and park for free. If not does anyone know the price for parking at the pier?

denise44   Sep 29, 2016 - 3:43 pm


melsmullins   Sep 23, 2016 - 6:53 pm

We are too!

speakesup   Sep 20, 2016 - 6:07 am

Does anyone know if there is a "white night" or a "70's" night? Trying to let fellow travelers know what to pack

Marysy   Sep 14, 2016 - 3:15 pm

I don't see why not. It's their private island. If they booked both for you, I'm sure it's doable

ruger   Sep 05, 2016 - 7:26 pm

We're sailing on the Anthem to Bahamas in December. We arrive at CoCo Cay at 9:30 and depart at 5. Have signed up for snorkel adventure and underwater treasure hunt for the morning and stingray City at 1:30. Can anyone tell me if this schedule will work well?

mrron1206   Sep 01, 2016 - 8:13 pm

Me too!! 1st one!!

Marysy   Aug 27, 2016 - 8:27 pm

Welcome! Are you on the December 9th cruise?

Dfuture   Aug 27, 2016 - 7:25 pm

Dfuture checked in to this roll call and is traveling with 3 other guests.

Windjam064   Aug 26, 2016 - 6:23 pm

We did the same cruise for the same reason (just 2 of us). We have another booked on school vacation week with 8 in February so this December cruise will be our quiet vacation (hopefully)

pacotaco23   Aug 26, 2016 - 6:12 pm

just booked activities can't wait

Marysy   Aug 26, 2016 - 2:36 pm

We cruise in December frequently. Very few children as school is in session

kodak7   Aug 26, 2016 - 2:36 pm

Booked for December 9th, hopefully limited amount of children as most in school. What do you Think? Don't mind too many. Always amazed seeing at imbarking large number and not see many until disembarking, lol. Got a great deal on balcony room with BJ's Travel. Plus RCL has adult area, unlike NCL.

draodan   Aug 24, 2016 - 6:00 pm

I read that December is a lot better for a quieter crowd. Hoping so myself, as well.

kodak7   Aug 21, 2016 - 4:02 pm

I figured they would as the shops want everyone to be in a buying spirt for the holidays. Took a cruise in November and looked like shoppers were stocking up. Lol.

abokatu   Aug 13, 2016 - 1:14 am


Grammie3   Jul 17, 2016 - 9:10 pm

Hi! Does anyone know if the drink package can be used when in CocoCay at the beach? Thanks

Grammie3   Jul 12, 2016 - 5:30 pm

Does anyone know how much for a taxi from port to Atlantis? There will be 10 of us! Thanks!

badbritt3210   Jul 01, 2016 - 9:23 pm

Usually they decorate the ships the week right after thanksgiving so I'm sure almost all cruises will be decorated by end of November, first week in December at the latest..

badbritt3210   Jul 01, 2016 - 9:20 pm

Just booked ours for that date, really excited as we haven't been on the Royal Cruises. Heard lots of good things, hope everyone has a blast!

pacotaco23   Jun 08, 2016 - 11:39 pm


littletaipei   May 14, 2016 - 3:34 pm


Windjam064   May 08, 2016 - 10:16 am

Yup - we just booked a few weeks ago. I can't wait to check out Anthem

laur08   Apr 21, 2016 - 7:44 pm

That's great I'm sure we will have a great time

laur08   Apr 21, 2016 - 7:43 pm

When will they decorate the ship for Christmas

angel1312   Feb 15, 2016 - 11:59 am

Yay. Bet your excited. I sure am, it's my first ever cruise.

laur08   Feb 15, 2016 - 7:39 am


angel1312   Feb 15, 2016 - 4:13 am

Anyone on Royal Caribbean. Anthem of the seas ,9th December?

angel1312   Feb 15, 2016 - 4:07 am
