We Will Rock You was a good show. Can't go wrong with Queen music!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We stayed in 10517, a virtual balcony stateroom. Although small, it was cozy and having the virtual balcony did make the cabin seem bigger. Our cabin streward, Karla, was awesome! She kept our cabin neat and tidy and well stocked. Karla was very helpful and very friendly. Hope to see her again on a future cruise on Anthem. Overall, very comfortable and would choose a virtual balcony cabin again.

Ship tip

Relax, have fun and do as much or as little as you want. Anthem is a beautiful and spacious ship. Never had issues with crowds as they are well dispersed throughout the ship.

Ports of call

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Labadee is very nice. The only issue we had was in the marketplace area where locals sell their items. They are very pushy and don't respect personal space nor telling them " no thank you".

San Juan, Puerto Rico

We chose to self disembark and were off the ship shortly after being cleared by customs. No issues nor delays.
