  1. Trying to figure out bed placement PORT side on the Anthem. Using this formula didn’t work for me last cruise. Cabin 12284 bed was by balcony which I didn’t like. Maybe it was a formula for a different class ship. Look at a deck plan and find cabins that are connecting. The cabin on the left as you enter the cabin will have the bed by the bathroom. The cabin on the right will have the bed by the balcony. This pattern will repeat with every pair of cabins.
  2. We are sailing next week on anthem of the sea room 12 678. We are leaving out of New Jersey which side of the ship is this room? Also from this balcony room where we have a view of the Statue of Liberty when we are leaving New Jersey? Does he even pass Statue of LibertyAnd if it does does the balcony view have a good view of it
  3. This will sound very strange but I am on the Anthem in April and will be wanting to watch some videos that will be with me in my computer whilst in my stateroom ( nothing dodgy) I need to know what connections are on the rear of the TVs if any, in the staterooms, USB, HDMI,Scart whatever so that I can see if it’s doable to watch on the TVs our not. (Some hotels have TVs specially made without any external inputs, maybe RCI do the same) a photo would be best but a description will be more than good. thank you. Mike
  4. i am booked on anthem nov 13 when do u think royal will cancel nov sailings? has anyone heard about crew returning to certain ships?
  5. Looking at a CB-connecting balcony room on the Anthem of the Seas. Does the room connecting (shared door) or does the balcony connect? Going with elderly parents and not so concerned about room but would love to have one big nice balcony.
  6. I’m considering buying the unlimited dining for my cruise (12 nights and 6 sea days). There aren’t as many options on anthem as on other ships. I have a few questions about inclusions: Michael’s pub food? (My guess is yes) La Patasserie (my guess is no) solarium bistro upcharges for the $10 extra for lamb chops (don’t know)
  7. I don't know how long this will last, but on my Cruise Planner today (9/21/2020) at 1:20 pm PST for Anthem OTS Norwegian Fjords 16-24 July 2021: DBP (it says including gratuity!): $46/day; total for each DBP was $368, so it looks like gratuity was included in the price. DBP + 1 Device VOOM: $54/day ("Each adult of legal drinking age assigned to the same stateroom must purchase this package. Price shown is per person, per day.). I couldn't tell if this meant that both had to buy DBP + Voom 1 Device) VOOM 1 Device: $11.49/day VOOM 2 Device: $17.99/day
  8. Good morning. Time for some planning. We are thinking about cruising on the Anthem in February 2023. It would be us, another couple and possibly their teenage son, so we are thinking about one of the Anthem 2 Bedroom Grand Suites. We've been on the Anthem several times so we know what to expect in that respect, but we do have a couple of questions. Is their anything about the 2 Bedroom Grand Suites that could be a red flag? We know there are only a small number of these on the ship, but is there a reason to choose a particular one? Thanks. Tom & Donna
  9. Did the RCI app support messaging without the need to buy the Wi-fi package? I can’t remember! Thanks.
  10. Crazy I just booked an obstructive cabin 6560 for a B2B 11/28-12/12/21 with a REFUNDABLE deposit. Never booked an obstructed balcony before but did read it’s mostly non-obstructed. I can always cancel before final payment. Any thoughts.
  11. Did a mock booking for a solo cabin on Anthem January 2022 sail and only cabins on 6 & 7the deck are reflected. Worried about minor obstructions and wondering are any cabins on higher decks.
  12. Hey Does anyone have any ideas when the planned technical dry dock is on Anthem? thanks
  13. can anyone tell me what are all the options for dining on anthem
  14. I have this booked but am wondering if it’s worth the cost. I have done the tour on another cruise line and enjoyed it. Anyone have details or opinions on it? thanks.
  15. What is the EARLIEST time slot for My Time Dining on the Anthem of the Seas ? Called the Cruise Planner today and was told the earliest is 6:30 pm. ??? We have sailed on the Anthem before and know the hours for MTD were earlier than that ??
  16. Looking to cruise January 2021, we are young 50’s Diamond members so we are very familiar with RCL. We live in NJ so getting to Bayonne is easy but we’ve always flew to Fla or SJU. Looking at the 11 day with a few concerns. Most of the reviews On the Anthem I’ve read are negative for various reasons, rowdy passengers, terrible food and service, dirty ship etc...Has it been that bad? Did a ship tour on her a few years ago and it didn’t seem that way but things change I’m sure. Here’s another question if you’ve read this far. Never did Celebrity and considering the Apex if completed by Jan. Big concern is being bored. We like the music by the pool and just the overall atmosphere going on the on the RCL big ships. We are late diners and usually hit the late shows, karaoke, comedians after dinner and are concerned that the ship is dead by then. Thanks for your opinions
  17. We are thinking of booking our first RCL cruise on Anthem of the Seas out of New Jersey 🙂. I realize that Feb will be cold leaving from NJ but how long before it will warm up? Days? Has anyone done this cruise during the month of February to give feedback? Are the seas rough? We are looking at booking the virtual inside cabin - thoughts on this? Any suggestions/advice would be much appreciated!
  18. I just went to check on prices for one of our booked cruises and noticed Anthem OTS is not available for Jan. 2021. First, I had January selected and noticed the ship was not available to select. Next, I did the opposite and picked Anthem, but no sailing is available for Jan. 2021 at the moment. Anyone know what is going on?
  19. I'm writing this in the past tense because, well, the cruise is over. I knew I would be busy on this one so in fairness I'm going to skip a lot of things about this magnificent ship. I've always enjoyed Anthem and Quantum class in general as evidenced by this being my fourth time on Anthem. I wouldn't keep coming back if this wasn't a great ship. Itinerary: Day 1 - Bayonne embarking Day 2 - Sea day Day 3 - Sea day Day 4 - San Juan Day 5 - St. Maarten Day 6 - Antigua Day 7 - St Lucia Day 8 - St Kitts Day 9 - Sea day Day 10 - Sea day Day 11 - Sea day Day 12 - Bayonne debarking Spoiler alert - I still love this ship after my latest cruise. Without further adieu, let's get this started.
  20. Just booked this cruise for my two grandchildren and my friend. We had to cancel our cruise in May this year so my grandchildren were very disappointed. We got a very good deal as we previously booked for the 7 day cruise but they cancelled it to make a 14 day cruise instead so we got a two weeks cruise instead of one. Just hope the virus will have abated by then.
  21. I heard from a crew member friend that on May 9th the Anthem will transfer all non-Indians stuck on ships off South Florida to other ships and all Asian Indians will board the Anthem to journey home to India. I guess they will include other RCL brands but perhaps even non-RCL brands . Seems strange - must be a long journey
  22. Anyone have any guess as to which ship will be replacing Anthem in Bayonne when she sails to Europe in 2020?
  23. ANTHEM O.T.S. maiden arrival at Piraeus Port... not under the best circumstance though. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nmwp2yC7NRU
  24. Looking at booking a backup cruise in case our current plan doesn't go ahead with potentially more covid cancellations (This Dec on Anthem isn't looking overly promising). We are looking at Anthem for March 2022 with out 2 kids (pre-teen and a teen). Normally we stick with a promenade or a balcony room, but for what we've saved from our cancelled cruises, I figure we can pay a bit more and treat ourselves. Deciding between 2 connecting balcony rooms or a Junior Suite on deck 9. These JS rooms have a sofa bed and a pullman bed. Cost is the same. One question Do the JS rooms on deck 9 (e.g. room 9210) have 1.5 bathrooms (one toilet/sink and another toilet/sink/shower) or just a single bathroom? Opinions? What would others pick for a family of 4? We would have become diamond after completing our original booked cruises had we not had a couple of them cancelled, so double points are a bonus. I've heard very good things about Coastal Kitchen. But having said that, our son loves the MDR with same waiters and assigned table, so it's hard to get him to be happy going elsewhere for dinner. On the flip side, our kids would each get a regular bed, 2 full bathrooms is a bonus (esp as we typically shower before dinner so would save time). And I assume we have more chance of a price drop on 2 balcony rooms vs a JS, as JS seem to only increase in price (and 2 rooms are only so pricey due to the refundable difference). Thoughts?
  25. Saw a lot of posts saying August/September cruises in Europe were cancelled. It was final payment day for me for this cruise so just phoned up now to check the status and was told that Anthem for 16th August has not been cancelled as of today. Just a heads up for any other people with final payment due today.
