Anthem of the Seas - March 9-17, 2018

Recommended Posts

Regular breakfast in the WJ today. Grabbed a few photos. I have noticed that for lunch and breakfast they always have a section of Asian food. I don't remember seeing this that regularly on other ships. @jurrjurr no dim sum though.

Sorry for all the slanted shots. It was crowded as usual. I am certain I don't like the WJ here on Anthem. The food is good but the poor flow of traffic really bothers me. It is consistently like this. 

I did find this which I thought was very interesting....

And here on Anthem, mimosas can be found on carts that look like this...

Trying to decide what to do now. Hubby might take the kids to the pool so I might go check out the solarium finally. 🤗

Stayed in the WJ so long that they rolled out lunch desserts...so I snapped a few pics before everything was picked through. Something for all of you to look at while you are having lunch at work 😉 don't hate me lol

The chocolate one looks like a ding dong from hostess.

Solarium Bistro recon

On Oasis class, they had separate breakfast, lunch, and dinner times here. I found this interesting once I got to the entrance:

Here are some sample food offerings in the Solarium Bistro:

They are also making Coco locos on board.

The Coco Locos were probably already made earlier.  The bar staff on Anthem told me they start prepping for CocoCay many hours before the ship arrives.  They have to haul cart after cart of food and beverages down to the lower deck to get ready to off load it onto tenders to supply the island (certain tender boats have a flat cargo area on the front to transfer supplies to the island).  This is all accomplished in the 4-5 hours leading up to arrival.  When they skip CocoCay they get to drag all the carts back upstairs and unload them.  It's a tremendous amount of effort.  The Coco Loco (same as the Labradoozie) is made without alcohol.  Alcohol is added at the time of drink purchase.  Instead of just dumping the Coco Loco semi-frozen slushie mix out, they start selling it on the ship.

That's what I figured too. Especially when I watched mine come out of a cooler 😊

Side note: IMO it is not worth it to get the refreshment package and then pay for the difference in alcohol. For example, the rum for my Coco loco was $7.95 plus 18%. That works out to $9.38. A margarita is even more because it has 2 liquors. So basically if you get a good deal on the deluxe package you might as well get that.

Sabrina, I think it would be impossible for anyone to hate you. You are absolutely one of the nicest people I have never met!! I am certainly not alone in loving your review. Enjoy the rest of your cruise---and the We Will Rock You show.
