Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas Room Assessment
I simply obtained again from my first Royal Caribbean Cruise on the $940 Million Anthem of the Seas Ship, the second ship of the Quantum Class. I booked a Superior Oceanview state room with balcony on the 10th ground. (Room 10252 to be precise.) This assessment is proscribed to room. Subsequent week I’ll do a full assessment of the ship and general expertise.
The overall for the journey for room, taxes and costs for 2 folks got here out to $2325. Cruise costs actually range extensively relying on how and whenever you e-book them in addition to what’s included in your package deal. I ended up reserving by the AMEX Cruise Privileges program as a result of it gave me a state room credit score and an additional membership rewards level per greenback on the price. All for a similar value that Royal Caribbean prices.
Room Sort: Superior Ocean View State Room with Balcony
One Phrase: Tiny. After we first walked in, my first thought was one thing alongside the traces of “Wow, have staterooms all the time been this small or did I get larger? I’m really down just a few lbs, so I don’t assume it’s me.” When you recover from the dimensions, you possibly can recognize the fashionable model and engaging colour scheme.
Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas is three years outdated and it’s nonetheless obtained the polished look of one thing new. I additionally felt the small space was laid out nicely, in order to maximise area. Sadly these final two factors are the one two positives I can share in regards to the rooms.
For body of reference, I’m not an enormous cruiser. I’ve been on eight or 9 cruises totally on Norwegian and Carnival Cruise traces. I used to be wanting ahead to Royal Caribbean as a result of it appears to be thought to be the perfect of the three. I positively don’t have the identical impression. Each Norwegian and Carnival had larger rooms and Norwegians appear to be nicer.
Cleanliness might have been higher, I used to be consistently noticing issues that had been dusty or soiled. There have been 4 staterooms between us and the opposite members of my group felt the identical manner. Additionally the mattress was very uncomfortable, it felt like it could have been damaged, so hopefully that was an remoted incident. Although the balcony chairs weren’t very comfy both.
So far as facilities and different extras, I actually really feel that is an space that might simply be improved to raise the expertise. There’s hand cleaning soap and a two-in-one shampoo and conditioner supplied. That’s it. I don’t want them to offer a lot, however nowadays a separate shampoo and conditioner and possibly q-tips seem to be the naked minimal. I even have by no means been on a cruise the place robes aren’t supplied.
The lavatory was acceptable however once more, very small. The bathe was fairly tight and I stored knocking the shampoo dispenser off of the wall which obtained a bit annoying. We additionally needed to name upkeep the second day as a result of the bathe wan’t draining. It was dealt with shortly and glued for the rest of the journey. Temperature and bathe stress had been respectable, so no complaints there. One factor to remember, if you need to blow dry your hair or prepare within the mirror, there’s positively not sufficient area to try this within the rest room, however there’s a desk with a mirror.
I want I had extra, however you recognize what they are saying: Small room….. small assessment. I feel for the worth, I might have accomplished higher on a unique cruise line. Total, I used to be a bit dissatisfied and felt the rooms might have been nicer and bigger. Royal Caribbean’s state room appeared to be fairly primary with out many frills. I might be afraid to see how small a room and not using a balcony would really feel. Generally visitor expertise comes all the way down to the small particulars and I feel that’s the case right here. The excellent news is which you can get a significantly better deal on a unique line and the staterooms can be larger.
