  1. We got our Anthem room assignment 11 days out- and got 2 great rooms on the 11th deck
  2. Hi- I am not really a show person, so the late dining didn't affect me. i know some people arrived late one night after We Will Rock You let out at about 8:15, so it didn't seem like a big deal.
  3. Casino- AVOID the craps table! The table is dead, you can only play 1x odds, and I saw nobody win all week. The slot machines are old, none of the new fun machines, but that is to be expected on a cruise ship. Wasn't a bad week, but def not a winning one. My daughter and her friend made friends at the teen club, but said the teen club staff never did any of the activities that were listed. It was kind of an i don't care what you guys do attitude. I also didn't like that there was no way to contact the kids without purchasing the internet package. i didn't purchase it because I didn'
  4. Food- I found the food to be good. The windjammer got a little stale for breakfast by the 7th day, but that is to be expected. The fresh squeezed OJ was great! We ate lunch in the windjammer most days, except the last sea day we ate in the main dining room (American icon) and found the menu to be a nice change from the windjammer. They also had a smaller buffet set up in the MDR at lunch. MDR for dinner was great. They had the staples of chicken, steak, etc every night, accompanied by a few different items every night. The turkey dinner was very good, as was the prime rib. the lobster
  5. Last 2 sea days- The first sea day back was beautiful- we laid out by the pool for most of the day. Last sea day was cold and the water was a bit rough- it doesn't bother me at all, but the girls all took motion sickness meds and were fine. We had another medical emergency the last night around 11pm. They needed someone with type O- blood with a donor card to go to guest services immediately. Not sure what happened that someone needed a blood transfusion at sea, but I am guessing thats what was happening. Debarkation- again, the fastest debarkation from a ship we have ever had. We me
  6. Port Canaveral- Didn't plan any excursions here, thank goodness, because we were delayed getting into port because of the emergency evacuation the day before. We took an Uber to Ron Jon's, had lunch by the beach at Captain Jacks (Avoid this place) and then my wife and the girls went to Cocoa Beach for a while, but the weather was crappy. We talked to people that did excursions, namely Disney, and they said they got there, had time for a ride or two, and had to get back on the shuttle to the ship. Id be annoyed if I spent the money on that. Perfect Day at Cocoa Cay- I booked the water p
  7. Just got off the Anthem of the Seas from our 11/2-11/9 trip for my daughter's Sweet 16 and our 20th Anniversary cruise. It was a great cruise, lots of fun, and a lot to discuss. i will start from the beginning. Embarkation Day- EASIEST embarkation we have had in 16 cruises. We got to the port around 10:00 am. By the time we got our bags out of the car, we were in the terminal at 10:15. We got right up to an agent who checked our set sail passes and passports. They had to retake my wife's picture, as well as my daughter's friends picture. The whole process took about 5 minutes. We
  8. Thank you Fiona! So, if you reach the $500 limit, you would have to go pay that and then your limit would go back to $500?
  9. When setting up expenses on the ship, if you do it as a cash account, do they take a cash deposit when you check in?
  10. We got our assignment 11 days out from our Nov 2nd Anthem Cruise. Didn’t get our muster station or deck ahead of time.
  11. Yeah I guess my wife and I will take the connecting room and put the teens in the non connecting room- hopefully no issues with the people next door
  12. one has a sofa bed and one has just a sofa- my bad
  13. Our GTY obstructed view balcony rooms were assigned today for our Anthem cruise on Nov 2nd. Deck 11 we got a 2D 11656 and a 5D 11586. Having never sailed on Royal before, which room is considered better? Both are mid ship, one has a sofa one doesn't. And, if anyone has knowledge, are these obstructed? Thank you!
  14. If I originally elected not to pre-pay the gratuities for our cruise, but I now want to pre-pay them, what is the easiest way to do this?
  15. Thank you all so much for answering my previous questions. I have another one. We are taking my daughter and her friend for my daughter's Sweet 16 on the Anthem November 2nd. Do I need to have a letter from her friends parents saying they are aware that she is on a cruise with us? I remember reading somewhere that someone was given a hard time because there was no permission/letter from the other parents. I don't want to not have one and have complications at the terminal. Thank you again!
