just returned from our cruise on Anthem of the Seas and was very disappointed. We have previously cruised on Independence and this cruise ship is no where near that standard. Main problems were too many people on board. We could not get a seat in any of the bars in the evening. We had pre booked for the two shows "The Gift" and "We will Rock You" which were both very poor. The entertainment in general was very poor not anywhere near the standard we have had on either the Independence or on P & O. Other problems were unable to get a sun lounger on deck and also did not manage to get any loungers in the Solarium all holiday. Complained to the pool manager and he just shrugged his shoulders. The staff in general were no where near as professional as we have been used to and some of the Eastern Eiropean staff in the Grand Restaurant and the American Icon Grill were frankly quite rude. There were no sail away parties and no pool parties. We hardly saw the entertainment crew. The food in the Windjammer was very good with an excellent choice however we thought that the food in the Grand Restaurant was poor with the same menu every night. All in all we were very disappointed with this cruise and would never go on a Qantum Class ship again
