I have to also agree that I was surprised at how much movement I felt on Anthem in seas that were not particularly rough. I happen to enjoy a little movement so it wasn't an issue for me, but it...

Fascinating to hear Captain Claus' perspective in comparison to what has been printed elsewhere (like the Washington Post article earlier today). Thanks for posting!

Get home safe! Hope the port staff help people with their cars... That's a lot of snow for some guests to shovel.

There's no dedicated nightclub like on previous classes of ship, but both Two70 and Music Hall serve as a nightclub depending on the night. While I was initially unhappy that there was no dedicated...

Thanks for your tips OP. The one thing that really drove us nuts on our first BA cruise was the insanity at the buffet at breakfast time. I really wish we knew about the smaller buffet at Moderno! ...
