Frugal Husband’s Anthem of the Seas Review

Recommended Posts

Thank you for your great review! 👍 We are going on Anthem in a couple month and we also received specialty dining from our TA and I am strongly considering Wonderland. Did you make your actual dining reservation after you boarded or were you able to do that online? I was told we would get a voucher in our room once we board, which means I will only be able to book Wonderland AFTER we board and I am a little worried about availability seeing how popular this place is. What did you do?

 

Thanks for the kind words!

 

we could not reserve Wonderland online before because if we did we would of had to pay right then. 

 

As as soon as we boarded we went straight to Wonderland to book our night. We got behind a family who was trying to make reservations for their entire week!

 

i found out after that you can go to ANY specialty dining restaurant and make reservations for any play. 

 

My my suggestion is when you board make a right. Wonderland is right there. If the line is long keep walking past Wonderland and you will get to Izumi and you can have the hostess make your reservation for Wonderland there.

Thanks for the entertaining review!! Wondering if you ever received your ifly pics? Crazy the cruise line doesn't offer pics. Missing a major revenue opportunity there 🙄

 

Still waiting for our ifly photos. Hahaha I really don’t know how the couple forgot to send them to us?

Loved your review, this is george35 wife & I want your wife to answer this question. How can you stand your husbands DARK & bristly beard. My husband cant get near me with out a clean shaven face, dosent it scratch your face? I know its not a cruise question but after seeing all the pics of both of you I thought of how my face would feel. Dont answer if you dont care too.

Wow!!! The entire week! :classic_ohmy: 

So then once you boarded, did you not have to go to your room first (once it was available) to get the actual voucher, then go to Wonderland to make the reservation? My TA said there will be a voucher waiting for us in our room. Unless they are able to see that we have the voucher in their system when making the reservation right away?

I really enjoyed your review. NYC is an amazing place to visit and I can’t wait to go back. We went In April and used AirBnB for our lodging. I must say We will never stay in a Hotel in Manhattan again. We were able to get a private apartment in the village for $70 a night and another right next to Central Park on the upper east side for $85 a night. I highly recommend checking there when planning your next trip to NYC! Being on the frugal side ourselves, AirBnB is the best way and we are able to travel more.

I didn’t wait for the voucher. They won’t charge your account until you go to dinner and even if they did you could just go to guest services and preset the voucher and have them remove the charge.

I totally got your Disney reference about the Fast pass expiring. Had a feeling you were fellow DCPers. Thanks for your review. Ronda
