I recently returned from a 3 night cruise on Anthem of the seas, what can i say other than this ship is AMAZING. I have cruised with P&O, Cunard, Celebrity and other Royal Caribbean ships before but this one blows all of them out of the water. This is a fun ship with is packed with technology and things to do. From the Flo Rider, Ifly simulator, bumper cars, Circus school, Roller disco, climbing wall, puzzle break, i could go on and on. The dynmic dining is great as long as you book your restaurants before you board, dont leave it until you board the ship you you might find the restaurant you want to eat is in fully booked and you could be waiting in a long line outside the resturant. However so long as you have booked you walk up and a quick swipe of your wrist band you and shown to your table, which can be a table to for 2. The food was good, but i would say that i was a little disappoint that as this was a 'taster' cruise they offered the same menu in each of the complimentary restaurants (different to the ones you see online). The service and cabins are fine, nothing to complain about. Once again with the activities and the shows you need to book these either before your board or as soon as you get on board. There are ipad/tablets all over the ship which means you can do this without queuing up at guest relations. I would give this cruise ship a 10 out of 10 for being a throughly well thought through ship. Also if you think that it would be crowded on board, its not. Where 5000 guests and 3000 employee's go, i dont know but as this ship is huge and i mean huge, it doesnt feel full. If you get a chance to try this ship, i highly recommend it. However this ship wouldnt be for everyone, if you are used to crusing with Cunard, you might want to avoid this ship. This is a family fun ship which is mixed with great dining and entertainment. The seaplex area is a huge area which is for teenagers and children, if you are taking your kids with you, you are likley to lose them to this area. They have xbox's, basketball, bumper cars, football, table tennis etc.
