Twangster - How were the seas sailing down and back from NYC?  We've only done one cruise out of Bayonne (to Bermuda and back) and the seas were very rough the first and last day.  Outside decks closed and barf bags on the stairs.  That was also back when the terminal was a big tent and they shuttle bused you to the ship.  My wife swore never again.  I've tried to tell her that we had an unusually bad experience with the rough seas, but I don't know how true that really is.

 

On this cruise the rough seas were in the Caribbean.  The North Atlantic was smooth.  That's the thing, weather is weather.  No telling what it will be like one week to the next.  

 

Right now as I write this the Caribbean Sea is rough and ships are missing ports in the Bahamas.  

 

That's winter cruising.  Everyone fears hurricane season yet the waters tend to be smoother in the summer months until a tropical storm comes along and ships tend to avoid those.

Thanks for those menu pictures!!

 

I know that the Starbucks drinks are not included in the Deluxe Beverage Package, but are the other coffee drinks from La Patisserie included?

12mm full frame

 

I knew it looked unique.  Something that wide is difficult to frame subject matter correctly.  You do a great job of it.  My widest lens is 16mm and I have a hard time getting things to look "right" and interesting.

Ultra wide angle is useful on a ship due to tight spaces but you have to careful using them.  The trick is to finding natural lines in the scene that compliment the lens distortion.  Shooting straight and level is also important to minimize keystone effect.   Some of that I correct in Lightroom but if you can reduce it when shooting it makes it easier later on.

On anthem, the Starbucks drinks at LA Patisserie are included in the deluxe drink package. As long as it's not a stand alone Starbucks, they are included in the deluxe drink package.

 I've not seen this before.  Is it a functional bench/swing, or just an interesting light feature?  If the former, at what time do towels appear on it during sea days. 😁

 

You can sit on it and swing.  One person capacity.

@Twangster - Wow! What a great review and fantastic photos. You truly bring out the best of these ships with your photos. Looks like you had a great time and thank you for sharing all the info. 

I have followed the Quantum Class build for some time now and looking forward to sailing on one soon.
