Beautiful Ship

Sail Date: December 27, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We went on the Anthem of the Seas and celebrated New Year's Eve.  The complimentary restaurants are very good.  The North Star was a great experience. The staff and wait servers were friendly.  We particularly liked the restaurants Silk and Grande.  The Grande is the only restaurant where men need jacket. We did not eat in the specialty restaurants as we thought the price range $40 to $85/pp was high.  We booked an inside Virtual Balcony room because we were doing a winter sailing.  That was a nice touch. The balcony gives you a view of the back of the ship. When you book an inside room sometimes you loose track of time but the virtual balcony eliminated that. We loved Spectra which was in their 2/70 room.  That room is amazing.  My only complaint was that if you didn't book special shows or activities before you got on the ship you were closed out.  I also thought they could have kept activities like bumper cars and skating open for longer hours.  Love the Roast Beef on Wick sandwiches as I am from Buffalo. 

Cabin / Stateroom
The virtual balcony gave you a "window" that eliminated that total darkness of an interior room. Good for winter travel.
