Anthem of the Seas Postcard #7 – Sea Day 3

We went to another amazing show in the Theatre Royal last night, this time it was called Frankie and The Dreamers which is a Frankie Valli show performed by Ryan Molloy, star of the original West End Jersey Boys production. Backed by his three Dreamers , they put on an exceptional performance and had many on their feet at the end of the show. It was his first live performance since lockdown stopped the world in its tracks and his happiness at being back on stage was very evident.

When the fog came down yesterday afternoon, it never lifted and at various times throughout the night the ship’s fog horn sounded out every 2 minutes or so. We woke up to thick fog again this morning and because we were moving quite slow in a flat sea it was really quite eerie. Fortunately it all cleared just after 9:00 along with the foghorn. Nicole had her last yoga session while I went down to two70 to watch Captains Corner which was a Q&A with the Captain, Hotel Director and Cruise Director. It was really interesting with lots of very good questions being asked by some of the attendees.

For me it was also a great opportunity for a nice coffee before meeting up with Nicole for breakfast in the Windjammer. During breakfast we encountered another fog bank, which we soon sailed through but with plenty of sunshine following on behind. On arrival back at the cabin we found we had received our disembarkation times and luggage tags, ours being 16 which is an 8:30 slot and also the last to go. Cases will need to be out by 11:00pm and will be available for collection in the terminal when we get off in the morning. As part of the process, you are encouraged to watch channel 7 for additional information and also again on disembarkation day for notifications when to leave the cabin.

Once you have taken breakfast, you are to return to the cabin to await your turn to leave the ship. Back to today, after breakfast we returned to the cabin and the case’s were packed in preparation for putting out in the evening. One last lunch in the Windjammer, followed by a few laps of deck 15, eventually deciding to grab a couple of beds at the aft to see the afternoon out.

We have had some glorious weather for our last afternoon onboard Anthem of the Seas. Before we made our way back to the cabin, we decided to go to two70 and have a coffee and were very lucky to find a couple of seats looking out over the wake. Absolutely stunning views!!

The last day is always a bit of a weird one, while it’s great to still be onboard, getting off is only just around the corner.

  1. Before the pandemic we were avid world cruisers and we have followed your intrepid travels over a number of years and it is great to get another persons views ( written and pictorial) on places and ships
    We are not fans of the larger ships but have been fascinated by your staycation experiences on Anthem. Sadly our smaller favorite ships are not yet going to pastures new to merit spending and going onboard – nor have they done any sensible staycations . Great blog but also a nice selection of pictures of the ship and locations visited
