Review summary

Its a shame to have a new ship launched and it just plagued with problem after problem.  The first time I cruised on the Anthem was Jan.12th 2016 and I new before walking on board the ship that there were going to be problems.  The welcoming staff was very inattentive and my biggest problem was that the staff NEVER pushed or reminded the guest to Sanitize their hands.  This lack of protocol went on for the entire 12 day of the cruise.  When I filled out the Royal Caribbean customer survey at the end of the cruise I told them that the crew and staff is asking for an Outbreak of NOROVIRUS.  Sure enough exactly 1 month later the Anthem had an outbreak of norovirus.  Well I figured that with this current cruise the crew and staff would have cleaned up their act but after cruising on this weekend cruise to nowhere I can see that the crew and staff of the Anthem still hasn't learned their lesson about being pro active in informing everyone to Washy Washy / sanitize their hands. All I have to say is that I told Royal Caribbean that I wont be cruising on this ship ever again.
