Our experience on Anthem was terrific up until the cruiseline cut the trip short by two days due to anticipated bad weather. We missed Barbados and St. Kitts. The embarkation and disembarkation process was the fastest we ever experienced anywhere. Our balcony room on the 9th floor was beautiful and always clean and made up twice a day. We did not like rotating through four dining rooms (we had classic dining) and missed having one large dining room, although our waiters traveled with us. Every dining room has a different theme and beautiful decorations, especially Silk. Chops and Jamie's were delicious and a nice break from the regular dining. We thought the onboard activities were the usual silly ones found on cruise ships. The entertainment everywhere was awesome and both the musicians and performers were so talented!! Don't miss Spectra and The Gift. Read your Compass newsletter daily though to know where the entertainment is because some people missed performances because that's the only way to find out where and when. Don't miss Will Joy in the Schooner Bar--he is a pianist that plays throughout the trip. So talented! We took the All Access tour of the ship and learned so much about the Anthem. Our favorite shore excursion was in St. Maarten racing on the America's Cup yachts--what an adventure! All in all, we loved the cruise, the staff and the ship!

Ship Tip

Book all shows and dining before leaving on cruise. Reservations necessary for Spectra, We Will Rock You, and The Gift. Read the Compass newsletter daily to find out about entertainment that no reservations are needed--lots of it everywhere. Don't miss talent in Schooner Bar!
