Anthem of the seas Feb 9th 2018

Recommended Posts

Greetings all.

I'm writing to you from my pre-cruise hotel listening to the dulcet tones of airbuses and boeings flying overhead as I await the arrival of the Anthem tomorrow morning.

Travelling with me is my wife, 3 year old daughter and a friend of ours who has NEVER CRUISED BEFORE. We are staying in a grand loft suite (I feel she may be screwed for any subsequent cruise if she likes...)

I'll do my best to post here daily but copious amounts of watered down American beer (if you can call it that) may get in the way.

Feel free to ask any questions. I'll do my best to answer them.

Oh. Before I forget.. The Lids store located within the Jersey Garden mall had paw patrol hats on for 50% off. I know you'll sleep better knowing that.

Cheers.

Well first off, thanks for offering to feed our vicarious cruise addiction for another 9 days! Your service is much appreciated! :10_wink:

As to the beer, @twangster had showed in one of his earlier liveblogs that the pub on board actually has a pretty good selection of decent beers, including some good German double bock. Have a couple of those instead of the Bud and you’ll be singing a different tune, I’m sure! :3_grin:

You raise a valid point about Michael's. I'll gladly give those brews a try.. But this Canadian is discerning when it comes to barley and hops.

Brooklyn lager isn't terrible beer and it's on tap ( at Michael's).  Canadian with proud Molson muscle here, but beer like food is a very personal preference. 

I'll give you that. Brooklyn lager is the closest American brew to Creemore Springs (my favourite beer) that I've found to date.

Looking forward to watching your journey and try to take some pictures of the food (I know its hard I tend to forget because I'm all like "get in my belly" lol, but it will make me drool for sure lol. Thank you for taking the time for these :)

Have a great cruise! Can I ask you all the qustions I forgot to ask @twangster? Can you tell me if you see information on booking the escape room? Also, are you eating in the MDR? Can you post pictures of menus? Are they the same cruise to cruise? Thanks and enjoy!

Not stepping foot in the MDR for the first time ever. Our genie booked escape room. I'll see if I can get any info. Menus should be the same from cruise to cruise.

For the record, no issue getting beer for the room. Wasn't however able to get a cooler.

There was lots of beer in my room. 

Not as much anymore. Must be evaporating as I get further south. 

 

Dinner tonight was in the CK. Pork belly app was spectacular. Filet was very good for a main. Cheesecake for dessert was very good. Service was phenomenal. 

 

Wonderland and Ifly tomorrow.

No idea where we are... But it is a helluva lot warmer than where we were.

High of 17 today. Costal Kitchen for breaky then Ifly. North star ressys this afternoon as well.

856 kids on board. 200 aquanot aged kids... Only 30 spaces per session in that room. Thank God for the drink package and WiFi while we wait... (go ahead.. Judge me. I'll sleep fine).

More to come later after I drive 15 cocktails into my yap.

Ask any questions.

Your stateroom TV has one channel that will show you a map.  Granted, that's time away from the pool!

Oh I'm very much aware of the bridge map channel but I wasn't in the room when I was inquiring about my current coordinates.
