Good Time by sgriffey702

The staff of Anthem was as professional and friendly as you get. The interior design of the ship does not have the WOW FUN factor. Although elegant there is something missing. Shows were just OK, again technically sound and brilliant performances if not for the gift and comedians boring. Seaplex excellent from I fly to bumper cars, unfortunately no water slides in a limited pool area, the bubble was ok. All in all a 3.5 out of 5 (no outside walk around)

Nice ship and cruise could have been great. by dloomis

Verified Review

There is a lot of walking due to the lack of stairways and long waits for elevators. Our bathroom had a terrible Odor of old urine and it was not from lack of cleaning, our cabin was very clean. Due to the fact I waited to make copies of my reservation I lost $125.00 on borad credit and given a terrible excuse.

Fun time lots of history to explore by ksteward

Nice cruise plan with many things to at the ports, all the ports have sometimes to do even if you don’t book a excursion. Boston was a long walk to see the sites from the ship. The lobster on bar harbor was yummy and the Seaford chowder in Portland at bay of fundy was the best I every had. Easy cruise to go on with just enough time in each port.

Not a good as you might think by gadalya00

Verified Review

Overall, A big disappointment. You get a fair price for the cruise but Then Royal Caribbean nickel and dimes you on everything else. Royal caribbean charges you a fortune for a soda package but they make it very Difficult to get any soda. Royal Carribean have greatly cut back on the amount of food you can have The buffet is only open at limited times. Your choices of food after 9pm are both very limited and poor Basically after 9pm you had a choice of really bad pizza Or sandwiches that we're mostly bread and very little of anything else. The shore excursions we're very expensive and very Poorly orchestrated, in Halifax we had to stand out side the Cruise terminal in the rain for over an hour IN THE RAIN!! Before any busses were loaded. Royal Caribbean's customer service was rigid Not helpful and unresponsive. Basically if you had took a complaint to Guest services, you spoke to someone who Acted like they couldn't fully understand you And made you repeat yourself so many times That in the end you just get so frustrated You end up walking away with your issue unresolved. All in all a very poor experience that left you wanting I seriously doubt I will ever cruise with Royal Caribbean again. BJ's however we're great, They offered me a good deal overall and we're helpful and attentive. BJ'S customer service was great!! I would definitely use BJ's travel again!!!.

Xaing and Rakeshkumar were so wonderful in the Gramde Dining room (table 409). And Ahmet - head waiter was so thoughtful and caring at all times. They really made my family feel welcomed and well taken care of. Thank you so much!

Anthem of the Seas by colaj

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My husband and I enjoyed our cruise to Bermuda. The anthem is a nice ship, although it does not have the wow factor of the oasis. The food and service was good. We did not try the specialty restaurants but we especially enjoyed the bistro in the solarium. They served breakfast lunch and dinner without the crowds of buffet and main dining room. The solarium also is a nice place to relax without the the crowds by the main pools. We shows on the ship were ok, my favorites were the spectra cabaret and they had a accapella group that was terrific. One complaint I have is the dress codes are not enforced. Formal night is a joke with some in dress clothes, jackets and ties and some in tee shirts and gym shorts The sloppy attire belongs at the buffet, or stop the dress codes all together. My balcony cabin was very comfortable and spacious. Bermuda was beautiful, I really enjoyed the 2 days we spent there.

Great Cruise by mbisch04

This was not our first trip to Bermuda. The locals are friendly and helpful. There is some improvement needed aboard this ship. We were a little disappointed in a few things, but not enough for it to ruin our vacation. Looking forward to our next voyage.

Great Trip by ethanh434

Verified Review

The ships crew was great. Our stateroom attendant, Al was on point. The casino staff was amazing, and I lost. The only negative was the Nextcruise team. They gave me a price almost $2500 more than I found on the royal caribbean website. When I pushed for an answer why was told that I should just be cheap and book online. When I said that if I did that I would look at other cruise lines I was told that was fine because they didn't want me to cruise with Royal Caribbean.

OMG by editmetoo

You distorted one of my large pieces of luggage goin onto the ship. You glued it together worthless. You then ripped and ruined my other piece of luggage leaving the ship. You entertainment on this ship was worh a C rating. We have cruised over 15 ships. For the size of this ship you should have had top entertainment. You are NOT an NCL. Profit margins are very high and you are too cheap. Never again RCL. Nice ship design and layout.

The waters were rocky, as a result a lot of the on board excursions were cancelled. Myself and a lot of cruisers were upset because our reservations were cancelled and they were accommodated.
