  1. Whatever you do, avoid the Windjammer. We went to the Park Cafe on boarding day. Short line, nice selection, did not feel like a madhouse.

    Majesty balcony staterooms

    Back on the early 90s when Majesty was built, cabins with balconies were rare. The next generation of ships, the Vision class, there were few more. It wasn't until Voyager class and Radiance class that balconies became commonplace--and much more affordable.

    Cold fruit soups in MDR

    It was on the menu one night (on a 9-night sailing) on Anthem in August.
  4. We've done this itinerary twice, and really enjoyed it. My recommendations for must do tours are: Boston - do the hop on hop off tour bus. There is so much history to take in, and you can maximize your day doing it this way. Halifax - Peggy's Cove is a beautiful and quintessential scenic view of coastal Canada. Also in Halifax, the Maritime museum, which is an easy walk from the ship. It's easily accessible from walking along the boardwalk, which is a beautiful pedestrian promenade.

    Air Portugal

    Researching flights for next fall. Miami to Venice, one way. Pricing is excellent. Anyone have any experience with this airline?
  7. Jamie's was, without exception, the best dining experience on our recent Anthem cruise. Our entrees, rack of lamb, were outstanding. Our server presented a beautiful appetizers board and told us just to taste, so we'd have room for our entrees. And that's what we did. We also had a dessert board, beautifully presented, and just took a few bites, which was all we wanted. It was a great meal, and I highly recommend it.

    Cruise Critic Mobile App?

    Thanks for the responses. Hope the app comes back.
  9. Anyone else having trouble accessing it lately? I tried to research it on the boards, but not able to find anything.
  10. In addition to crafts, you can bring cards and play different card games. On our recent 9-night Anthem cruise, we were 4 couples traveling together, and the 4 women are all mah Jong players. I bought a travel set for the trip, and we had 3 sea days where we were able to play. Great way to spend a few sea days. Sent from my SM-T713 using Forums mobile app
  11. If your ship has a Jamie Oliver restaurant, it's worth the upcharge. That was the best meal we had on Anthem last month. Lamb shank in the dining room is consistently good, and one of my all time faves. Windjammer is, IMO, not great. We typically avoid it. You won't go hungry.

  12. We had a very good dinner at Chop's on Anthem last month. Filets were done to perfection. But i was very disappointed that they served the same tired and uninspiring Caesar salad that is served in the dining room. This was the first time they didn't offer the Hearts of Romaine Caesar salad. Sent from my SM-T713 using Forums mobile app
  13. 270 and Solarium Bistro are better options than the Windjammer. Not crowded, easier to find tables, and 270 has the added bonus of the roast beef sandwiches. Great way to start a cruise. Sent from my SM-T713 using Forums mobile app

    What's new with Royal?

    And to expand on this accurate comment.....Dress has gotten even more casual in the dining room. We saw men in shorts every night at dinner, just a handful of tuxes and suits on "formal" night, with many men wearing slacks and collared shirts only, and overall, the most casual dress of any cruise we've been on. This was Anthem a couple of weeks ago.

    From Oasis to Anthem

    Anthem is a great ship for families! There are many kid-friendly and family-friendly activities you can all enjoy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Anthem to anyone, including families. Sent from my SM-T713 using Forums mobile app
