Symphony

So much to do, and it really has the "wow" factor.  Shows were incredible, and I just love exploring and seeing all the art work, decor and such.  We stick to included venues (but did love El Loco Fresh), but has great additional dining choices for those that want to try.  So many options and things to do.

Having said that, I have loved every Royal cruise so far as each brings something unique....and then there is that Royal familiarity.

Hehehehe ...... So far, my daily departed Lady G (very cozy & intimate, more like old style cruising) -- we don't need all the bells & whistles to enjoy ourselves.----

We would've like Brilliance more had there been fewer kids (totally our fault for booking a cruise over Easter) ---- the back patio of the Windjammer on Brilliance is insane.

Loved Navigator (pre-amp'd) ---- it was like the Goldilock's of ships --- not too big, not too small

This is difficult, I have 3, but if I must choose 1:

Oasis. We sailed her January of 2010 and at the time she was one of a kind. I loved everything about her. We sailed her again in 2012. Since 2012 I've been trying to sail her again but vacation life took us to other ships (not even an Oasis Class!). We were supposed to sail her September of 2020 but that failed. Hopefully this September. 

I still remember obsessing over every announcement they made leading up to our 2010 cruise.

I have a conflicted opinion. I'm very partial to Anthem simply because it was the first Royal ship we sailed on and I had such a great time that it just will always stand out as "the first". Our second was on Harmony, and to reiterate everyone else's thoughts of the WOW factor and the amenities, the shows, the Oasis class...the Harmony is simply amazing, but that's where my conflict comes in. I'm so deathly afraid of heights that the openings in the middle to look down into the neighborhoods, and the sheer size of Harmony in port, makes going near the railings and doing some of the things on the ship near impossible for me, so I feel like I miss out too...I mean even typing about them now my palms are a little sweaty 🤣 We are supposed to go back on Harmony in January 2022 (a glutton for punishment I suppose!) and my goal is to conquer that fear, or at the very least leverage the beverage package into allowing me to try everything this time!

This is a close 2nd or 3rd and one I was referring to when I mentioned having 3. We sailed her 3 times and each time has personal significance to me.

2016: "Wedding cruise" didn't use the ship service but we cruised to Bermuda and married on the island.

2018: Cruise with family/friends & in Bermuda we scattered some ashes of a friend. It was going to be him and maybe his sister joining us. Having his sister still come along & bring some ashes was awesome.

2019: A bunch of friends invited themselves along and it ended up being an awesome cruise with tons of memories.

Honestly not got a favourite but I'm probably team Oasis Class as well. I was meant to do the revamped Oasis last July and had I been on her, I think she'd have maybe became my new favourite - better than HM & SY with the upgrades. Plus, she still has the original Oasis decor which I prefer to the Quantum decor that is on Q Class & 2nd gen O class.

While we are partial to Voyager because our honeymoon was on the maiden voyage and we had so much fun visiting the islands an experiencing the islanders joy at seeing "the big ship," our favorite Freedom. Not too big, not too small. 

My first cruise was Grandeur...but DH and I had our honeymoon on Voyager too (and first cruise together).  At the time, it was the largest ship in the world...lol.

Harmony has been our favorite ship so far! 

But the experience we had on Empress sailing to Cuba was one of a kind. Even though we didn't have all the bells and whistles, the group we sailed with, the intimate experiences the crew gave us, and the unmatched service make it our clear favorite cruise! 

I missed not having a Broadway quality musical on board... but at least it wasn't CATS 🤣

Anthem because it was our first and only with Royal so far! Loved the aft deck and activities like flow rider and I fly.  Honestly, I think Oasis will take top spot; deck 17, proximity to CK, the aqua theatre, Portside BBQ and everything else! Since April 2021 is a bust, only 459 days to go. 🥰

Limited sample size for us only sailing on Enchantment and Anthem with RC, but would say Anthem so far.  We loved the solarium and sailing out of NJ felt the ship was perfect for it. I felt like there was a lot to do but I don’t think the ship felt too big either.

 That said, we are looking forward to trying a different class of ship for our next cruise.
