"LIVE" from Anthem of the Seas - January 19, 2018


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone . . . It is once again time to Cruise. Welcome to the start of “LIVE” from Anthem of the Seas. I will driving up to my precruise Hotel today for my sailing on Anthem of the Seas tomorrow for a delightful 9 Night Cruise (Florida and Bahamas). I have been following Anthem of the Seas and Grandeur of the Seas for a few weeks as they have been sailing to many of the same ports.

We will be going to Port Canaveral, Miami, Nassau, and CocoCay during this voyage. Coco Cay has been missed a few times, but there doesn’tappear to be a storm in the forecast during my sailing and I will be hopingthat Anthem will be able to anchor off the coast next week.

I last sailed onAnthem of the Seas in June 2017 to Bar Harbor and Canada for a short 5 NightCruise. I think I really need a longer cruise now and this 9 night Cruise fitthe bill. My last Cruise was on Carnival Pride back in November 2017. Mysailing appears to be sold out so there are a lot of passengers like me whowant to escape from this very cold January and spend a few days in some warmerweather.

I will be posting “LIVE” daily with photos and commentsabout the public areas, cabins, as well as my four ports this sailing. I amtraveling with several Cruise Critic Members and it will be very nice to speakwith them while onboard. I have spoken with several on previous cruises, andwill meet some for the first time. Some good luck charms are always positiveand maybe Casino Royale could be very “Radio Friendly”

It has been very cold this month in Maryland and I am hoping fora relaxing and warm cruise. (with a valid wireless connection, keep your fingerscrossed). Have a cup of Coffee, relax and welcome aboard!

Thanks for tuning in . . .

Another Radio "LIVE". This is great news!

 

Radio, another message thread here reports the Anthem is heading back to Bayonne at full speed and will drop off a sick passenger at 4 pm today (Thursday).

 

Then the Anthem will head back out to sea, to return at the scheduled time Friday morning.

 

Info here, it is message #90.

Yes...another "Live" Radio report. The only difference is that I am on this cruise to take a break from the cold.

 

Looking forward to meeting you and the rest of the CC at the Meet and Mingle.

Another itinerary update today from the Captain...

 

We will be arriving to Bayonne later than anticipated due to the heavy seas we experienced all night. They seas continue to be heavy and should remain this way for the rest of today.

 

He said we should arrive at the entry to the port about 7:00 and it will be about 9:00 when we finish docking.

 

We will now remain port for the evening, and not go back out to sea.

 

The shops and casino will close about 7:00 pm and not reopen for the remainder of the cruise.

 

Pat and hubby Tom
