Great Cruise But the food, not so much.
Anthem of the Seas Cruise Review
Review summaryShip was nice, and big, but at the same time they crammed so much into it that made it seem small. Cannot walk to the bow on this one. Staff were unhappy and food was tasteless and cold. What saved this cruise was that it was only 5 days with 2 days in Bermuda, lovely little island.
Food and Dining
The breakfast was a complete disappointment. The bacon was thin and greasy as if they deep fried it and didn’t drain the grease. The eggs weather the precooked ones or the omelette made to order were completely tasteless. The pork sausages were either undercooked and pale in color or crispy on the outside almost burned it somehow with the middle not cooked. And of course super greasy. The french toast and waffles were absolutely disgusting, a mooshy wet mess in the middle, again not cooked/ baked properly. And don’t give me this complimentary crap because it’s not complementary. It is paid for!! Nothing, absolutely nothing is complementary on a cruise ship!! If you believe that you are too naive. Dinner was slightly better but not by much. The proteins again were tasteless. If my eyes were closed I wouldn’t know what I was eating. Quality is just getting worse and worse as the years go by. Confirmed this with other cruisers with many more years of cruising and a lot said they are giving up on Royal Caribbean due to the food just being bad!! Waitstaff were slower than molasses. Finding a clean table to sit and eat the horrible food took quite a search and a few loops around the place. Because 1 you have the inconsiderate fellow cruisers that finished eating but sit there hogging a table for another 30, 40min to an hour yapping on their phones. And 2 the waitstaff wouldn’t clean the ones that were empty and full of dirty dishes.
This one had good food. I don’t know how since the food pretty much all comes from the same place.
Service was great, however the food lacked in taste. Very blend.
Surprisingly good little pizza here. Saved us from starving due to the horrible tasteless food on other venues.
Very nice venue, lots of technology but nothing put of this world as they claim. Tv Monitors that get moved around by robots... ok. So what? They make it sound like its gona blow your mind. I found it boring. Maybe computer geeks will appreciate it bit for the common folk nothing out of the ordinary. Spectras Cabaret was ok. But just another musical with people dangling from ropes and the robots moving monitors back and fourth. Again, nothing out of the ordinary.
The Royal Theater
The Gift was the worst play I have ever seen in my life. Absolutely horrible. We will rock you on the other hand was awesome! The 2 comedians were also very enjoyable!
