Day 4 - San Juan, Scheduled Arrival 3pm  As we approached San Juan our sunny day ended and it became apparent we would have some liquid sunshine, emphasis on liquid, to contend with. We

Before your blog my wife would not even consider Anthem because of the long haul from NJ to the Caribbean (She remembers all of the horror stories of the rough seas a while back), but now she is at least considering the group cruise in 2019.

We went well out of our way to sail in more favorable seas.  I recorded the 18 minute explanation from the Captain on channel 40. I'm sure it greatly increased fuel consumption running at top speed.  I think they learned a lesson from that one.

You've taken pictures of hundreds of people; where is the picture of you??   How are we going to be able to differentiate you from Super Mario when we are sailing?

Super Mario is a lot better looking.   Come on the Alaska GC if you want to see me 😎

No interest in cruising Alaska but like @Floski I am definitely very curious Twangster!  I imagine the Alaska GC will go something like this...

Someone on that GC needs to capture it for all of us left here in suspense 😜

Thanks for that info @twangster! I am out of reactions for the day as I just got off the Disney Fantasy and had limited wifi. I have missed this live blog!  Catching up on your posts and the message boards has been a great way to pass the time at MCO while waiting for my delayed flight back to DTW. It's been delayed two hours due to ice in Detroit. What a way to come back after great Caribbean weather 😔

I grew up in the metro area.   Do you live around there?   Jane

Thanks for the post about Vintages! That's definitely one area I plan to check out when I sail Freedom in March and Anthem next October. It's great to hear that they have selections not listed on the menu, at least on Anthem. Also good to hear that the servers know their stuff! I'm not at all a fan of Pinot or Cab, much prefer Malbec / Chianti / Zinfandel, so hopefully they'll have some good off-menu recommendations for the poor sods like me that don't get a lot of on-menu choices.

Joe...vintages was my go to stop before dinner to grab a glass of wine and I loved the bartender there.   It was one of my face spots on freedom (next to the schooner bar and 80s trivia) and I never understand why it isn't more crowded.  Jane

Christmas decorations went up while we were in Nassau.  I caught this photo earlier in the day while they were assembling the tree.

Note they also placed a Menorah to the right of Michael's.

They were starting to add festive bling to Guest Services as I headed off to bed.

We just returned from the Anthem New Year's Eve cruise and saw them taking down all the decorations. Ours was Port Liberty to Port Canaveral to Nassau to CocoCay; we also had to skip CocoCay due to weather.

This was my first cruise; already starting to plan the next one.

Welcome to the message boards!

I'm going back on Anthem in 11 days and looking forward to it! 

Hoping to make Coco Cay this time, but if not, oh well, next cruise.  Once the new pier is finished in June that shouldn't be a problem any more.
