Just returned from a 5-day Bermuda trip. We're a quiet couple that was looking for relaxation and fun together. While this is of nobfault of RCCL, our trip was a bit ruined due to having very boisterous neighbors. We've been on other cruises where we could enjoy our balcony (or have the door open to the balcony if in the room). The ENTIRE 5 days we didn't go out on the balcony and would have to keep the the sliding balcony door closed due to the obnoxious neighbors continually hanging out on their balcony. Kids screaming, humans screaming and drinking. One day maybe cruise lines will have adult only floors (no groups, no families, no kids) or even adult SIDES of the boat. No noise from above, below, or next door. EUREKA! Or maybe I need to switch to a more upscale cruise line or boat? 1) more expensive cruise + 2) smaller boat would perhaps yield a more refined group of passengers. Not saying EVERYONE on my boat lacked refinement (we actually met a lot of lovely nice people), but people like my neighbors need to be weeded out, and there were just way too many kids around. Trying to have a romantic dinner in the MDR? You're only as peaceful as your closest neighbor...and your closest neighbor may have a screaming kid. Other than this I would give the Anthem of the Seas and the itinerary 5+++ stars. The BOAT was clean, gorgeous, and lots to do. Never had a problem getting deck chairs on the top deck (15), even if we showed up in the afternoon. We enjoyed playing ping pong, foosball, watching people on the FloRider and got on the North Star twice. We saw all the shows. Loved going in the Adult's only solarium pool. NOTE: if you're reading this and have kids- kids under the age of 16 are NOT allowed in the Solarium or the Solarium bistro. I can't really comment on the FOOD as I am not a picky eater lol. I wouldn't say it was the "best" food I've had on a cruise but I was continually going Mmmmm Mmmm at the MDR (we ate there every night - no need to pay for dinner at the expensive restaurants, people!). Lobster night was great, and we regularly ordered MORE apple pie dessert! So good. If you're a GYM buff - the gym is really nice. Walking track on 15 is really nice (unless it's windy, then you might feel like you're going to get blown overboard haha). There's also a little walking area on either side of the boat on deck 5. It doesn't go all the way around the boat, but you can walk up and down the sides of the boat and be away from the chaos. The LIBRARY could use some love. Not a lot of books to choose from or games. The ELEVATORS - I love taking the stairs as much as I can, but when you're going from the very top to the very bottom of the ship (or vice versus) it's best to take an elevator - well, be prepared to wait a long time for that elevator! CABINS - balcony room was well laid out. Two nice sized closets and larger square footage than other boats we've been on. Glass shower door (no shower curtain sticking to you ha!). Perfect for a couple. BERMUDA was a great destination (especially with it being an overnight stay). We walked over to Snorkel Bay the first day ($5 entrance fee). Very pretty. Later that day we did the Famous Homes tour via boat. Great way to see the island. The next day we went to Horsehoe Bay. Gorgeous beach there too. Take your sunscreen! KITCHEN Tour (with bottomless mimosa brunch) - highly recommended. Loved seeing the inner workings of the kitchen and lunch was delicious. Getting on the boat was a breeze, but if you're carrying your own luggage off for disembarkation at 7:45 I suggest getting there at 7:30 (or earlier) to line up (deck 5, mid ship) as the line was back to Two70 by 7:45am. The line moves fast, however. We had THE KEY. Cost $25 per person per day. Probably wasn't worth it in the end, but we enjoyed all the little perks - speedy check in, free lunch at Chops or Jamie's (on embarkation day), Wifi for the entire trip (the wifi on the boat is GREAT!), special times to do Flo-Rider, I-Fly, North Star (we went up twice - I had made a reservation for one of the times, the second was during the Key viewing time), designated seating at shows. Which came in handy for Spectra's Cabaret as the Two70 is not a big venue. And with that being said, be sure to book stuff ahead of time. Reservations are not always needed depending on what the demand is, but it's best to be locked and loaded. Especially for Spectra's Cabaret. Get to shows early to get the seat you want. Overall a great trip and nice clean, big, impressive new boat. Very easy taking it out of New Jersey - no need to fly. We took a train up from Maryland, stayed overnight at the Hilton (walking distance from the Newark Penn stop) and took an uber (30 min) the next morning. We were on the ship by 11:30 (slight delay due to the Coast Guard doing a boat check). Give it a shot! But just pray for quiet neighbors :-) Read Less

Well this is going to be a long review so get ready folks. As an avid cruiser (this was my 11th) I was really looking forward to going back to Bermuda for 3rd time. Please remember in this review Bermuda itself is incredible! The people! The beaches! It is paradise. I'd still say check out Bermuda but just on this ship. So the check in process was easy but it felt like cattle. The seating area was tight and awkward. Thank god that wait was only about 30 minutes. Once we got on at first I was so excited because I was on anthem to Bermuda back in May 2016 on my honeymoon so my husband & I were trying to "recreate" the trip. I am aware on boarding day that ships are usually busier but holy crap was this ship a nightmare. The layout just doesn't allow for everyone to be comfortable. It was just packed and miserable. This cruise also had a lot of children so if you aren't a fan of that just be aware. I am talking many from under 1 to teenagers. Be prepared for many screaming kids, running around everywhere, and the teens roam the ship all day/night (they are have a 1am curfew which shocked me). To touch on the cabin. We got an inside cabin which was fine. The only thing I can say is the virtual balcony sound didn't work, and many times the screen would randomly go black and stop working. For an inside it was a good size, and decent layout. The bed however was HORRIBLE! The sea day on the way back was rocky and being the very back you feel it more and every wave we physically rolled in the bed. That rolling causes a creak in the bed so you can imagine how hard it was to fall asleep. The walls are also paper thin so as the waves got nasty we could hear everyone puking around us. Lovely eh? I am now going to touch on the worst part of the cruise which breaks my heart because to me the food is such a large part of the cruise. I am loyal to Princess which always has amazing food. Well RCL you sucked in the food department. The food just lacked flavor (I never use salt on other lines but you needed it on everything). Say a breakfast potato (its as if they just boiled it and served it). Also as someone who cruises a lot I love trying new foods from around the world but I was reminded how "american" the food can be on RCL. Every night the buffet was the same and honestly there wasn't much change from lunch to dinner. We opted for the anytime dining option but it was constantly so busy we never went to the dining room. I understand you have to pre book but when you just aren't sure when you will return to the ship or what shows/activities you will be doing I find the concept of pre booking "anytime dining" very ironic. Don't call it anytime if you cannot go anytime!!! I am going to touch on the service now. I've never had bad service on a cruise ever but this one was a bit sad. I felt if you weren't buying something they weren't bothered (especially by the pool bars). Also I just found it hard to get help in various venues, and our cabin stewart was miserable. On princess I love making small talk, and learning about them. I think cruising is so incredible how so many people from all over the world work on one vessel. But we couldn't get a word out of him. Just a lack of smiles and honestly it was sad because I wondered if RCL treated their employees right because their unhappiness showed. Activities lacked. All the fancy bumper cars, ifly, and etc we didn't go on because it would be full of bratty children. I could drown on and on about this cruise. Overall it lacked in almost every aspect. Dining, room, activites, service. One last thing. RCL needs to stop nickel and diming. Here is a quick PRINCESS vs RCL. Popcorn on RCL they wanna charge like $3.50 vs princess its free! Room service on RCL they wanna charge $8 plus 18% vs princess its free! Drinks are pushed everywhere at all times vs princess they don't really bug you! Movies in the cabin on RCL are $12 vs princess has many movies to watch for free! So if I were you I'd rethink that bermuda RCL cruise. Read Less

We did a 5 day cruise to Bermuda, leaving from Cape Liberty in Bayonne, NJ. Embarking and disembarking went smooth and quick. We stayed in a balcony cabin. Only 2 complaints- 1) we could not hear when the Captain (or anyone else) made announcements over the PA system. As a result, we would have missed the muster drill if I hadn't read the Cruise Compass in our room indicating what time it would take place. 2) the shower leaked all over the bathroom floor. We dined at American Icon each night for dinner and sat at the same table with the same wait staff. Our waiter was great and took time to chat with us each night. The food was decent. We also ate breakfast at American Icon 2 mornings, again the food was decent. We dined at Windjammer for breakfast the other mornings as well as lunch the day we embarked. The food there reminded of me of a college campus all you can eat buffet. It was incredibly busy and at times hard to find a table to sit at. One morning I started clearing a dirty table myself because it took so long for an employee to do it. We Will Rock You was AMAZING!!! All of the actresses/actors/singers in all of the shows were super talented. The Gift's storyline was a little hard to follow and Spectra's Cabaret was bizarre. That aside, we did enjoy the talent! The only shore excursion we booked (Glassbottom Boat into Bermuda Triangle) got cancelled because of high winds. We were notified via a phone message and by paper delivered by your stateroom attendant. That was a bummer, but I'm glad we weren't lost in the triangle due to bad weather ;) The island of Bermuda is so beautiful! We chose to take the ferry over to St. George's on day 1 and then to take the public bus all the way back to King's Wharf. The ride took about 1.5 hours and we got to see a lot of the island and interact with the locals. On day 2 we took the ferry to and from Hamilton. The food at Wahoo's Waterside Bistro in St. George and at Flanagan's in Hamilton was delish! Read Less
