  1. You can see the menus for each night in your RC app.
  2. I put mine away in my purse when i take it off. I try to keep it clean, since it’s going over my nose and mouth. I’m not fond of other germs either….
  3. Everyone is different, but we really loved Ovation. Also, we have sailed many times on Anthem fully booked and never felt like it was crowded. It’s a well laid out ship with gorgeous aft spaces like 270 and the beautiful Suite lounge. There are lots of comfortable spaces on this ship to relax and many, many fun things to do, and it’s awesome for cooler/cold weather sailings, which happen all winter from NJ. I would sail this class of ship anytime. For us, it’s easy since we don’t need to fly to get to the port. But, we are sailing Oasis for the first time in a few weeks. I’m sure we will love it, but I have a feeling I will be missing Anthem too.
  4. Thanks for your post, and Im happy you had a wonderful vacation. It’s always nice to see more pictures to remind us of our perfect cruise on August 20. We loved Ovation, and knew we would. We frequently sail Anthem from NJ, so I jumped at the chance to book this ship, especially now. I know we won’t see these low numbers onboard again so it made for an unforgettable cruise. It’s tempting to go back and see different ports someday…
  5. Sorry to hear this. I agree about Nassau. I refuse to get off the ship there and I hear it’s worse now. And we loved Costa Maya. We went to Maya Chan there and had one of the best excursions ever.
  6. This is one of the most ridiculous posts/complaints I’ve seen recently… We have sailed in Junior suites and Full suites and both are nice rooms to enjoy on a vacation. The amenities included with these cabins are very clear. If you want full suite amenities, then book one. Don’t whine about something you didn’t pay for. No one owes you something.
  7. We sailed on Ovation on aug. 20. While on board, we asked the suite concierge if there had been Covid cases on the prior sailing and she said no. We wore tracelets the entire cruise and turned them in as we debarked. We never heard of any Covid cases and since we were very active with ship activities and excursions, I assume would have been notified if some we had been near had tested positive. I’m assuming there were no cases. And we all know it would have been blasted all over the internet if there had been cases identified. We felt our health and safety were a priority on our cruise. Enjoy yourself and Alaska!
  8. Definitely! We paid $69 pp in March, 2020 and even then I thought it was a pricey excursion. The food was good, but certainly not for the ridiculous price they are charging now. We may stay on the ship or go over to Chill Island for awhile, depending on the weather.
  9. Now I’m jealous ! And by the way, we’ve done the beach club at a cheaper price, and I’d still pick Maya Chan 👏👏👏
  10. I understand your hesitation about cruising now with Covid worries. But with current limits on capacity, the testing requirements, constant cleaning onboard, changes in Windjammer, and the use of masks, etc… I feel cruising is a pretty safe vacation. The really great thing is there aren’t obviously sick people onboard like we always seemed to see on past cruises. I’ve come home with a cold on many past cruises in spite of hand washing, unfortunately… My husband and I have an October cruise (Lift and shift) that we are excited about. And.. we very impulsively dropped everything and went to Alaska last month, knowing that we would never see low capacity like this again. Even better, we booked Ovation of the Seas because it’s a sister ship of Anthem, which we love. I’m so glad we took a chance and went! We also drive to NJ to sail and enjoy the simplicity of not flying and the convenience overall. Anthem is a wonderful, comfortable ship and has so much to offer. I agree about the Bahamas itinerary but we always enjoy sailing on Anthem. I say Go!!!
  11. Me too. We wore bracelets and also tracelets on Ovation a few weeks ago. No big deal and no one was complaining either.
  12. I remember the food at Maya Chan! Probably the best we ever had on an excursion. Loved that place!
  13. So, it sounds like it’s really an Oasis Class benefit, not a true Suite benefit.
  14. We were in a suite on our Ovation cruise a few weeks ago in Seattle . We got to the port about an hour early for our Noon boarding time. Everyone was happily waiting in a very big line all together outside. My husband nicely and very quietly mentioned to the Boarding personnel that we were in a suite. They immediately took us out of line, checked everything and we were then the third group to board the ship. If we hadn’t mentioned anything, I’m not sure what would have happened since there was little communication going on. It’s seemed like a disorganized boarding process compared to what we’ve experienced in Bayonne in the past. Maybe because cruises had just resumed in Seattle?
