Review & Pics of the Anthem. 7 Night Florida & Bahamas 2/19-2/26/17
We just got back yesterday from the Anthem of the Seas that sailed to Port Canaveral, Florida and then onto Coco Cay and Nassau, Bahamas. This was our second time on Anthem. We sailed her in October while they still had Dynamic Dining. We had a total of 7 people with us. Me, my wife, my 3 year old, 3 of her cousins and a family friend. 2 of them have never cruised before. Our age range goes from mid 30's to late 40's and of course my 3 year old.
Day 1. Cape Liberty, New Jersey.
We live within an hour of Bayonne (Cape Liberty). We booked a limo for 10am. Once we got to the port it took about 15 minutes to get up to a spot to unload. When all was said & done we were onboard by 11:30 or so. We all went for lunch at the Solarium Bistro. To be honest I don't even remember what I had. I don't remember it being bad though!
After lunch it was only a few minutes to 1pm. We headed down to Deck 7. Balcony room 7660. I really like the layout of the rooms like I said in my first Anthem review. I didn't take any shots of the room. Sorry. I'm not good in small spaces with photo but you can rest assured you will love the bathroom, USB ports for charging, Much more space for clothes and such while at the same time making the room feel more spacious.
We set sail around 3:30ish I believe so I headed up to watch pass under the Verrazano Bridge. Awesome. It is such a fun way to kick off your vacation. It feels like your breaking past some boundary into the relax, unwind, have fun, enjoy yourself zone! Went back to the room to relax a little and watch the sunset on the balcony. It was almost 75 degrees that day. You couldn't have dreamed of the weather being any better for February 19.
We had Wonderland booked for the first night at 8pm. We loved our experience there the first time so it was a no brainer to reserve again. All 7 of us went. They had some new dishes as well. We enjoyed every dish thoroughly and ambiance.
We didn't wrap up dinner till almost 11. Went back to the room and relaxed on the balcony s bit before heading to bed. The sunrise the next morning was beautiful.
Day 2 at Sea coming right up!
