  1. Chicken and waffles....who am I kidding...ALL THE FOOD
  2. The ship is Departing from Southampton, not Portsmouth, make sure you have the correct arrangements made.
  3. Disney is more expensive, but if you are a Disney fan (Marvel, Star Wars, ETC) I would say it does offer value for money in that case. I was lucky to do Disney twice , both Wonder and Magic. I would definitely not hesitate to sail them again if I can afford it.
  4. Overpacking. Stressing over the schedule "in my head" instead of relaxing on vacation.
  5. I agree with others, no reason to stay up, just do it as soon as you can.
  6. Why not is because we are not missing any ports, and Madeira being the shortest, and our stay is still 7 hours in port. I'm on the 23rd sailing as well, disappointed but not enough that I would change sailing or expect compensation.
  7. I'm on that cruise, I did both, I scanned in ours and typed in our friends.
  8. Hi Steve, my last two cruises on Anthem (one from NJ, and one from Southampton), they used Deck 4 - American Icon Grill and Silk both for My time Dining. I was sat at the same table and had the same waiters for the duration of each cruise.
  9. We have always been sat sat with the same waiter and table, when using MTD on Anthem. Luck maybe?
  10. Most likely some red tape created by their insurance companies. They probably cant get the shipped insured when sailing from Southampton without this silliness Who knows though? I paid £8.82 for 5 tests and happy to play along, LoL
  11. Anybody, know if this has been an issue recently? I just bought the shoe organiser with metal hooks for our upcoming cruise.
  12. The rules state you can take a picture of the negative test or bring in the negative strip. We are going to bring all four strips in a ziplock bag, it's negative so no cause for alarm. Now sharing a positive result would be a bit different Accepted Tests for Europe Cruises Departing on or After September 5, 2022; with no stops in Greece The test you take can be professionally administered by a health professional, such as a doctor or pharmacist, or you can use a home test kit. Home test kits for these sailings are not required to be administered under live video supervision. You will present the negative test result at the time of boarding. You can show it in the form of a printout, an email, or an app screen from the test provider. Or you can show a picture of your negative home test on your phone, or present the actual negative test itself. Telehealth tests and self test kits are not accepted if your cruise departs from Athens.
  13. This! And I would add make sure if you are booking direct with Royal that you wait for the invoice to some through while still on the phone with them!
  14. I just got the itinerary update email, Anthem of the Seas: a change to your itinerary RC Royal Caribbean <[email protected]> Mon 22/08/2022 13:35 Dear Guest, To accommodate routine engine maintenance, we've reduced our speed between ports and as a result, we've adjusted some of our arrival and departure times in Spain, Portugal, and the Canary Islands. We're terribly sorry for any inconvenience caused by this, but the safety and comfort of our guests and crew is always our top priority. Below, please find our revised Anthem of the Seas 23 September 2022 itinerary.

In the meantime, feel free to browse all the exciting shore excursion options for your sailing in Cruise Planner to level-up your holiday. Thanks for your understanding. We can't wait to welcome you onboard Anthem of the Seas! Sincerely,
  15. I wouldn't risk it, especially if its going to ruin your vacation. I would say the cabins near the casino would be the worst affected, with forward and aft cabins probably safe? My wife has the nose of a sniffer dog and she would notice it. She can smell what the neighbors are having for dinner 5 houses away.
  16. Still 2 days testing for Southampton sailings as well.
  17. Would be more credible if you posted more than once. In this case I will give the benefit of doubt to the show cast. How dare you besmirch hard working crew members with no backup or proof?
  18. Could you please post what brand/model/type was confiscated so that others may avoid your troubles?
  19. Pleas let us know more details? Ship? saying date? Destination/Ports? It would be helpful to let others know. Please let us know the details? What ship? Sailing Date? What Destination/Port? Where you ate? What you ate? It would be helpful to allow others the chance to avoid the same fate.
  20. Anybody who mentions they are from California during their show, get a walk out as well from us. I don't care where you are from and certainly not impressed unless you are buying us ALL a glass of wine
  21. Thanks Fiona, Checked in Tuesday Morning. Now the wait for luggage tags, and buying my return train Tickets:)
  22. 1. You can choose a time every night in advance on the Cruise Planner before you sail, or just show up and wait for a table. 2. Sealed prefaced snacks allowed, YMMV on other food. You should be fine bringing an open can or bottle of coke/water back with you, but no to other drinks. 3. You can totally stay on board, it's your vacation. 4. I cant think of any on board shows or movies that cost extra, its usually activities/experiences that cost extra, like escape rooms, fly, dining, etc. 5. Drinks run between $3.00-13.00 plus 18% from the states. Really depends on how much and what kind if you want a drinks package.
