The anthem is a beautiful ship but far too big, seniors for the most part  get around the ship with the motor power.  The food is good and especially good in the up charge Restaurants .   I Highly recommend Wonderland, worth the up charge and is something you will remember for a long long time.  The handicapped areas in the  Theater are bar none the best.  Getting on board with the new Bayonne terminal and parking garage is the best ever.  Last day we were out of our cabin @ 6:30AM down to deck 5 WITH ON waiting for the elevator, escorted with wheelchair assistance @ 7AM out and thru the terminal down the elevator got our bag with no problems, thru customs and NO ONE was there.  We were escorted wheel chair and porter to the side of the parking garage bags in car and out the parking garage @ 7:30AM.  On the turnpike and home by 8:40AM.  There were a lot of very good things about the ship but I found that being so big some of the personal touches are not there.  Every thing on this ship is about money.Wink

nice size. Bathroom was ok but for a suite and the money and considering you are a couple and probably seniors why would you wand to try to struggle to get into a bath tub to shower. I really liked the size of the NCL's Haven much more and there is a bathroom to die for. Don't feel bad Anthem, they are just trying to pack as many passengers into a ship without considering the comfort of said passengers

Ship Tip

RCCL needs to start considering the comfort of the passengers. This is a Smart ship and still has it's problems.
