Our experience bore no resemblance to some of the reviews we read before we sailed. Check in was done on a tablet and we were on board in minutes.The ship is stunning and beautifully designed. The food in all areas was excellent and dynamic dining worked well. We booked all the restaurants in advance and enjoyed them all so didn't bother with any of the speciality restaurants. Service was excellent and staff couldn't be more helpful. Of course the Windjammer was busy at breakfast and lunch but there were minimal queues and there are plenty alternatives open. Entertainment was all excellent especially the production shows.
We're glad we experienced the Anthem before she moves to the USA.
We were in a balcony stateroom and the new design is an improvement with more storage space.
