I was attempting a bad joke.  At first glance I saw "New York of the Seas" which struck a chord since Anthem is based in Bayonne.

 

 

I did get it😀 but it was also clear which ship was involved from the other posts. I should have added a 🤣though.

One thing I really like about Quantum class is the non-suite cabins.  The bathroom in particular is well laid out.  A standard interior virtual balcony or standard balcony cabin has loads of storage and is one of the best overall functional and aesthetically pleasing cabins that is available across the fleet.

 

I also prefer the JS on Quantum class.  JS access to Coastal Kitchen for dinner is much better on Quantum class as well.  

 

When it comes to loft suites I give the nod to Oasis class including easy access to the lounge and Coastal Kitchen. 

 

I like having variety to mix things up.  Sailing the same ship class over and over is alright but it's nice to experience something different and finding the best of both breeds.  The Music Hall on Anthem beats the Oasis Music Hall for example.  As I've gone back and forth to Quantum class ships versus other classes I've come to appreciate a lot about them in many small ways.  I could sit outside at the NorthStar bar for the entirety of happy hour just watching Alaska sail past.

I would pick either one.  Have sailed Anthem a bunch of times and should have been on Symphony this month, so if itinerary and price were comparable, I would go with Symphony.  On the other hand, if Anthem is sailing tonight from Bayonne at 7pm or later, I can make it! 😄

Have been on both- Harmony multiple times.  I didn't like the Anthem.  The layout isn't as nice as the Oasis class ships. Missed the giant promenade-  I also preferred the Harmony's food and restaurants.

 

The Anthem also seemed crowded.

Agree...I hated how the Promenade on Anthem just kinda dead ended in front of Sorrento's.

Tsk, tsk.  Judging without any actual experience.  😉  

 

Not cursed.  I have been on her many times.  MANY times.  Never had a bad cruise.

 

Other than location,  do you prefer Quantum class to Oasis class?

Do you think that is Harmony, or Symphony 🤔

 

I'd give Anthem a shot over Harmony

 

What would be cool is if they interported between NJ and PC

Left, the Anthem is cursed (my opinion)

We've sailed on her a couple of times without a problem, too.

 

I'll let you know about Symphony in May (knock on wood).

Always Anthem.  Disappointed by Oasis.  Only ship where we had to wait on line to get into WJ!  Space is too small.  Took 2 days to find out where made to order omelets were made (not WJ, was wipe out cafe not sure where now).  But lots of people like it.  Have sailed Quantum when she first sailed and Anthem.   Have sailed at least one ship from every class since early 90s.  Missed a couple of the very early ships.
