This blog is great so far! I have such wonderful memories of suite 10724 and Leroy. Sorry to ask for something while you’re on vacation, but if you could tell Leroy that the Gallers wish him well and that we miss him, especially Judah and Lily, I’d really appreciate it! Is Raj your room attendant? If he is, could you tell him that Lily still has the towel bunny he made her back in March, and she hugs it and says, “I miss Raj” ❤️ You are going to have such an amazing trip - enjoy every second! 

We will tell him! Raj is not our attendant. Maybe he is @GregD’s? We have Cathy and Mark.

My youngest broke my heart tonight, she said she prefers the Chops filet over CK. I must have made a mistake training her along the way. Lol. 
 

On a happier note, there is a CK crew member that we met on our first time on Anthem (March 2018). We ran into him on Allure in December 2021. Now he is back on Anthem again. Love running into crew from sailing to sailing. Hubby says that is a sign that we cruise too much.

@GregD, the Boss, Hubby, and I found this interesting. Why did all these people leave their luggage at their trunks?

Did RC start a service I'm unaware of?  I've never heard about leaving your luggage at your car?

Last night was busy for us, and the internet on my phone decided to stop working for a bit, but overnight it returned. We too went to Coastal Kitchen last night for dinner. 
 

As @twangster said about predictable……we are the same….

Filet…..this was interesting because our sauce was served on the side, which was good because it allowed for dunking each bite!

i do have to say that I agree with @Lovetocruise2002 youngest. This filet wasn’t the best. All the different filets I had on Oasis in February were better than this one, not that this one was bad by any means.

Our server also brought us a crème brûlée for dessert, and this is one I think we are going to give up on for good. I make crème brûlée at home often since it’s The Boss’s favorite, and the one made by RC doesn’t even come close.

Day 2 - Sea Day

Slept great last night. Not too much motion yet. Today we have Bumper Cars, North Star, and iFly. You can probably guess where I am right now😉

I am predictable lol

There are many things I don’t like about Anthem, but Anthem’s CK is still the best for service and their French Toast!

On a side note, I took a walk this morning to the Concierge Lounge. It was actually my first time there because our last two times on Anthem we were in a JS. It was quite the hike! From my room, down the hall to the aft stairs, then up two flights, back down the hall to the very back of Deck 12. I really miss Deck 17 lol. The views there are fantastic and surprisingly, there was no one there other than the suite concierge.

Last night we watched the welcome show. The cruise director is funny and entertaining. The lead for we will rock you sang a few songs. He has an amazing voice, and we had a moment of nostalgia because the first song he sang was the opening number in Aqua80, The Power of Love.

The comedian Mick Miller was quintessential British. His jokes are mainly one liners, and a one and done for us.

We too we’re boring cruisers and went to bed after the show. We missed the sunset, but we have a few more nights🤣

Darn. We should have gone with you guys.

After breakfast we met Leroy up in the seaplex for some bumper cars. Shortly after @Lovetocruise2002and her family arrived and we had some epic battles in the bumper cars. We all left with huge smiles on our faces and headed to Ifly. The weather is getting cooler. The shorts were shed for long pants and sweatshirts. 

Someone it ready!

We were also scheduled for the northstar this morning, but that got canceled due to weather. Leroy already has us rescheduled for later this week. 
 

We also decided to check out the concierge lounge. There are a few people here, as well as a stowaway. Hopefully someone doesn’t scare him away, the Captain came on to give an update, and the closest land is 40 miles away. He still has a long journey to Kristiansand too.

We leave in a week on Allure and my app shows filet on Day 3 instead of Day 1, so I had Romina put us down for Day 3. I assumed this was fleet wide but now I'm worried the app is wrong and the filet is really still on Day 1.

Just let Romina know that you want to eat there on filet night and she will make it happen regardless of what night it is.
