Fantastic Cruise with Fantastic Service and Ports of Call...but now it's back to Oasis Class Ships!
Anthem of the Seas Cruise Review to Canada, New England, New York
Review summaryUsual fantastic service. First time on a Quantum class ship and I wouldn't return...Oasis class much better, more open and exciting. Upgraded to a Junior Spa Suite (TWO bathrooms, one with bathtub and shower and sink, one with toilet and sink) and a much larger balcony room. VERY nice, especially for a nine day cruise! Best benefit of Suite class was access to Coastal Kitchen restaurant (only available to Suites and Pinnacle Class). What a place to eat! No crowd, intimate fine dining every night and included in the cruise fare.
Food and Dining
Best Windjammer I've ever been at (11 RC cruises)....great selection and great service
The highlight of our cruise! Fine dining every night! Intimate and wonderful, got the same table and wonderful waiter each evening, was able to alter our seating time....just a WOW experience every night!
This was the BEST MEAL I'VE EVER HAD!!!! Seriously, a VERY special event! Not your typical "Steak House" type specialty restaurant. You want to go here if you're looking for something special in the presentation (even though the food was INCREDIBLE!)
Ate there first evening (before we realized we could go to Coastal Kitchen for dinner).....worst MDR experience ever. Food was slow in coming and cold when it got there.
Ate breakfast there one day....limited selection and poor quality
Schooner Bar is one of my FAVE places on RC ships, but this one is in a poor location...felt tight.
Really silly.....almost always either not open or very little interest.
Always great people to work with!
VERY cool venue for a show and for game shows and Karaoke final.
The Royal Theater
Another highlight of any RC Cruise is the entertainment. Every show was a winner, especially "We Will Rock You".....Broadway quality!
Kind of simple....went up on a sea day, so all we saw was water. A long wait (20 minutes) for a 9 minute ride.
Nice venue for music, Bingo and entertainment.
Only 5 books and a few games....TERRIBLE!!!!
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Wonderful cruise, but my first and last time on a Quantum ship....if you want big, go Oasis Class....MUCH more open and exciting!
