@TheHobbys  Yeah trying to get the giraffe in a picture in not simple.

I am kind of jealous of you right now, but I only have 36 days to go until we sail under the Verrazano Bridge.  We are going on Adventure so it won't be as cool as the Anthem due to height, but still it is amazing.

Plus, since you sail away during rush hour...you kind of get that gloating feeling of them in bumper to bumper traffic and you sipping on a Lava Flow doing the Cha Cha on the pool deck

The only problem I have ever found on the sail away is they do the Cha Cha and follow it up with something like cotton eye joe or cupid shuffle.  I always think. dang did I sign up for Zumba and didn't realize it?  

The next thing I do is while dancing is to look over at my hubby lounging on a chair and raise my cup....hint hint honey I need a new one!

How was embarkation ?  What do you think of Yen ?

Went very smooth.  We got dropped off little before 1030 and waited maybe 10 minutes for someone to show up.   Went through security easy but noticed the big sign that said key folks ...  guess they were already there because there were quite a few folks in our area. Only about 8 seats designated for SC.  Key folks were drinking our coffee.   Yen is very cool.  Told her howdy for you.  She is very matter of fact. heh. Think this cruise she had about 12 guests in 3 rooms.  We won't harass her to much.

Here's a guide that @Lovetocruise2002 had asked for.

Hello Hobby's!

Enjoy, Enjoy the Anthem!  My husband and I were on the 9 night from 23rd of May to June 1st!  It was our second time doing this exact itinerary and loved the ship and the wonderful group of cruisers were fantastic!  The staff was even better also!  (Except the cruise director Mitch wasn't as present as other cruise directors we've had in the past)  When he was present he was nice.  He was the same way on our cruise on the Allure in September in 2018 too!  We had a great time with great cruise loving people in the Conceirge lounge each night before dinner also!  Great waiters and great view with floor to ceiling glass windows that were stunning to look through for sailaway from ports when a random rain shower happened!  We loved the Manager of the Coastal Kitchen Reuben.  He was the best we ever had by far and we have been in CK on Allure Oasis and Harmony ships in the past!  He is so personable to everyone in the entire room!  He and I became very good friends!  Please tell him Michelle and Bill said hi!  He is very friendly with everyone really!  His young assistant, Annabelle, is very sweet and very smart!  Our waiter was Kerismir!  Very big athletic looking man!  You won't be able to miss him really.  He was the very best we've had also!  I like that they give you the same waiter and table each evening even if your dinner time is different!  He would bring my husbands wine immediately, etc.  You really became engaged in the entire experience even more!  Also meeting the people around you!  The last night we were seated at another great table but had our same waiter!  The view in the Anthem Coastal Kitchen was by far better than on Oasis ships also!  Everywhere in the room you felt closer to the water!  His brother, Kerismir, (I know the same name!) was our waiter 2 nights in Jamie's Italian!  He is really awesome there!  We remembered him from our other Anthem sailings!  We had the 3 night dining package when it was $60 a piece and a free night from our travel agent.  So the other two nights we went to Chops!  We had great meals also!  We upgraded to a J1 or J4 #9632 the extra large pie shaped Jr. Suite!  It was fantastic!  But since we are Diamond Plus we had some awesome Bridge, Galley and a backstage tour!  The Captain was so great also!  You saw him all over the ship starting with Cafe Promenade in the morning!  

I'm blabbing on and on!  There is so much more to tell!

Enjoy the gorgeous sailaway!  Bon Voyage!

Michelle
