If you’re looking to book a cruise for your next vacation, I’ve got one for you!! Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas is simply amazing. I mean – AMAZING. I just spent 2 1/2 days aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas with my 11 year old son William and we had the time of our lives!!
Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas
I’m going to be totally honest with you here, I’ve always been “skeptical” of cruises for our family of 7 because I wasn’t sure if everyone would enjoy the time at sea. With 4 sons, a toddler daughter and me and my husband… I need to make sure that there’s a little something for everyone – regardless of where we go on vacation. Since it’s not easy finding that “perfect medium” for our whole family, we tend to book vacations that are pretty regular for us. The funny thing is – if you know me and my husband – we love to go on excursions and adventures with our kids, so I’m ALWAYS up for suggestions and recommendations from my friends and family.
When I received the press invitation for the Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas, I jumped at the opportunity to spend 2 nights and 3 days at sea with my oldest son to check out – up close and personal – a cruise. We went on a cruise over 5 years ago with the boys (Victoria wasn’t born yet!), so I was really curious to see how much fun me and William would have… and most important, if it was family friendly for our large family!
Let me just say this one word —— YES.
Oh my goodness, YES!!
I had truly, the best time ever with my oldest son William. We took advantage of all of the activities and fun and goodness on Anthem of the Seas… from dining to daytime activities to nighttime fun, we did it all! Our press trip left out of Bayonne, NJ and cruised to Washington DC… in that short amount of time, I can’t believe how much we fit in! We wanted to get the most out of the cruise as we possibly could!!
Here are some photos from our trip!!
