  1. As it was a UK cruise in October there were plenty of available loungers on the pool deck , the inside pool and solarium were busier but we always found a couple of loungers. Nowhere on the ship felt crowded, not even We Will Rock You, though they did perform it twice.
  2. Just spent 5 days on Anthem with 1699 other passengers, heaven
  3. Celebrity have just released some of theirs today, Austrailia/New Zealand, Alaska, Pacific Coast and Mexico, would imagine Royal wouldn't be far behind them.
  4. It does for the UK, first time that I can remember it being available to us.
  5. Excellent, it says we're working on the fun for our July sailing but at least it's not greyed out anymore
  6. They did the same on Celebrity Silhouette in the UK when we had a case on board ealier this year
  7. So it's not just us then, not sure why as we subscribe to their marketing e-mails, but then again they're pretty infrequent.
  8. Looks like the restriction is being lifted on all sailings after 29th August, unless they've moved the goalposts again https://www.royalcaribbean.com/gbr/en/the-healthy-sail-center/getting-ready-to-cruise As a reminder all guests sailing on Anthem of the Seas between 07th July 2021 – 29th August 2021 must be a resident of the United Kingdom (including the Channel Islands & Isle of Man).
  9. Yep we're the same, didn't want to wait until next May so found a reasonably priced UK cruise in October, no real interest in the destinations, just wanted to get back on a cruise ship.
  10. October 15th 2021, Anthem 5 nights UK
  11. Just spent 8 days on the Silhouette, all I can say is WOW, just WOW. All the staff were so happy to see us and all went the extra mile, best service I've ever had on a cruise. We were fortunate to have a 1-1 staff to customer ratio (about 950 of each), no queues (except at the coffee shop), brilliant shows and fantastic food. Not even the British weather or Covid could spoil things. We did have a positive case in a minor, we were informed and updated the next day that all close contacts had tested negative. Loved the ship, it was our first cruise for many years without our son so we didn't miss the climing wall and family features etc. Think we'll be trying Celebrity again in the near future, but still can't wait to get back on Anthem next year. Oh and it confirmed what we all knew, we've missed cruising.
  12. Can't see them using "It goes on like tar and doesn't smell like a Pina Colada" as a marketing slogan ?
  13. Serenade of the Seas in 2014, Eastern Med and Adriatic, we were hooked
  14. http://crew-center.com/cruise-ship-security-discovers-69-pounds-cocaine-during-vessel-inspection Apparently it was found by Royal Caribbean security while the ship was at Port Everglades, any idea which ship it was??
  15. Anthem leaves Southampton on the 20th October heading to Cape Liberty, it's been recently reinstated on the website, wasn't there a couple of weeks ago.
