There are four main restaurants which are all included in the cruise fare. These serve up a varied range of dishes from classic New Orleans Gumbo at the American Icon Grill, to contemporary and stylish cuisine at Chic. Silk boasts a menu of exquisite pan-Asian delicacies, and if you are a fan of formal dining options then elegant restaurant, The Grande, truly delivers.
For a casual dining experience or a quick bite on-the-go, passengers can choose from six further eateries. Pick up a tasty hot dog at Seaplex Dog House (the first food truck at sea), grab some coffee and cake at Café Promenade or sail your way through the varied world food islands at the Windjammer Marketplace. For burgers and shakes galore, head to the 50s themed diner Johnny Rockets, or for scrumptious New York style pizza, pop over to Sorrento’s. Café @ Two70° offers gourmet salads, sandwiches and soups which you can choose to eat in or take away in picnic form to enjoy elsewhere on the ship.
To top off your dining experience, there are several speciality restaurants onboard which are available at an additional cost, including the popular restaurant by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, Jamie’s Italian, serving lunch and dinner. For a super healthy option, the Solarium Bistro serves a menu of low calorie, health-conscious dishes designed by media personality, weight loss expert and chef, Devin Alexander.
On the other hand, if you feel like indulging, find perfectly cooked steak and seafood dishes available at Chop's Grille. For a unique and memorable dining experience, head to the magical Wonderland, which offers creative cuisine inspired by tales from down the rabbit hole, a unique experience not to be missed and perfect for a birthday celebration. Izumi Japanese Cuisine offers an a la carte menu, ideal for freshly made sushi and sashimi. For an extra special dining option, book a place at the Chef’s Table where you will be presented with gourmet delicacies by the head chef himself. There is also an experienced sommelier on hand to recommend the finest wine pairings for your food.
Suite guests can also enjoy exquisite food and high-class service at the fabulous Coastal Kitchen dining venue. Dishes here blend Mediterranean styles with California's punchy produce.
Multi-level venue Two70° promises unbelievable performances day and night, with 270-degree panoramic views of the sea scaling almost three decks in floor-to-ceiling glass. Performances you can see here vary widely, with some using impressive high-tech robotic screens alongside live performers. In the evenings the ample window space here is used to display projections of varying imagery which serves to complement the entertainment, or indeed the atmosphere.
Music Hall is a rock-and-roll inspired space fitted with a distinctive design, hosting daily activities from sun-up to sundown. Spanning decks three and four, Music Hall hosts dance classes and improv workshops, along with bars and billiards. A raised main stage also features live music with unobstructed views.
Head to the Royal Theatre for some of the world's most exciting productions, and get swept up in the vibrant world of show business with a range of outstanding shows.
Alternatively, if you'd prefer a calmer evening simply chatting with new friends over a drink or two, Anthem of the Seas has a range of lovely bars and lounges. One must-see venue is the Bionic Bar, where you'll watch in amazement as your favourite cocktail is made by robotic bartenders. Or, by night look for the spiralling staircase which encircles Royal Caribbean's first ice bar.
Anthem of the Seas provides the ultimate hub for relaxation. Find yourself on a blissful cloud of wellbeing when you visit Vitality at Sea Spa, where you can indulge in a whole host of treatments such as massages, body wraps, nail services and much more. Adults looking to escape the hubbub of the rest of the ship can venture into the tranquil exclusively for adults solarium, where it's easy to lose a few hours simply chilling out.
If you're anxious to stay on top of health and fitness during your cruise, you can burn a few calories on the running track or in the state-of-the-art gym.

There is also an onboard library and workshop where lectures, demos, and arts and crafts activities take place.

All rooms have updated amenities including USB outlets, larger storage solutions, and multi-functional furniture.

Anthem of the Seas is a beautiful ship, with lots of things to do at almost all times. The crew (all departments) are very committed to making a brilliant vacation experience.
Excellent although expensive.
Very enjoyable cruise. Excellent parking facilities at ABP Southampton. Cases delivered from car park to ship. Boarding was simple and efficient. Food and facilities excellent though some queuing both at breakfast and dinner. Shows were great. Excursions were expensive but we booked our trips (the same as RC ones) separately on-line direct with the providers at a much lesser cost. Overall a lovely experience and the weather was perfect.
