We loved the food and drinks on this ship. Whatever cocktail you like, they will make it for you. Even if its not on the menu. We tried several speciality dining options. Loved them all. Main dining room also very nice food.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We booked an obstructed view balcony, but didnt really know what the obstruction would be. Turns out the balcony is "hidden" in the rounds in front of the ship. For us it didnt feel obstructed at all, just move private because it is not as open as a normal balcony. We loved it and would book again! The cabin is in front of the ship so maybe not the best if you are seasick. We loved the rocking on the waves at night :-)

Ship tip

We loved Anthem, have nothing bad to say about it. We would really like to cruise on her again in the future!

Ports of call

Bridgetown, Barbados

4 out of 5
We loved Barbados and consider going there for a vacation. Impossible to see al tbe beauty in one short day. We did a tour of the island with a local. Just walk out of the port and there are plenty to choose from. We loved it and really hope to go back. Beautiful white beaches and really green scenery when you go more into the hills, al mixed up. The people are so nice and like in Antigua, so proud of there beautiful island.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Nice to walk around and do some souvenir shopping. Very touristy minded but looks nice and fun to walk around.

Fort-De-France, Martinique

4 out of 5
We arrived in Martinique on a sunday. Al the shops were closed and the town looked empty. We took a boot to another side of the island were we had an icecream (in one of the few placed that was open) and a drink and went back to the ship.

St. John's, Antigua

4 out of 5
Antigua stole our hearts. The local people are lovely and so proud of their beautiful island. We did the stingray excursion from Royal Carribean wich was really fun. After we walk around near the port and had some yummy food. Hope to visit again someday!

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

4 out of 5
It was our secons time on Sint Maarten. We did a private tour the first time we were there (just ask a local taxi driver) wich was amazing. This time we took a taxi to the french side, to a beautiful beach. There is a little bar there were you can eat some nice food. Its called Pedro's. I hope they were able to rebuild after the hurricane, it is a super nice place to spend a day at the beach! You can ask you taxi driver to pick you up on a specific time, so you will be back to the ship in time. Also the water taxi from the boulevard to the ship is really handy and cheap.

San Juan, Puerto Rico
