  3. Anthem of the Seas
Nothing but EXCELLENT to say about everything. We loved THE GIFT, but caution you to be there BEFORE the show starts and stay through till the end. Sit father back so to get the full concept of the stage presentation. The story begins with a performer giving you a little background about what is going to happen. If you miss this, you will be lost to what the gift really is about. Virtual Concert shows in the Two70, were worth the time to watch. Music Hall is a good venue for special shows and for dancing. Boleros featured Katrina Love and Synergy - she is a high energy performer, singing music for dancing. Anywhere Hot Spices is playing is worth attending. They play good reggae tunes. The 3D movies in Royal Theater were a great way to see fun movies, no matter your age. If you think a movie might be for the younger set, give it a chance. You might be pleasantly surprised. Same for the Bumper Cars. If you can sit down and get back up, they are FUN to ride. Don't let the line intimidate you - it moves fast and while you wait you will enjoy watching some good "races". The Solarium pools are wonderful. Loved the SOLARIUM BISTRO for evening dining. The WINDJAMMER was a lovely evening dining option. There is a grill that will cook-to-order your choice of steak, chicken, pork, or salmon (according to the offers each evening). The food is really good in the WJ, all the time. The one negative is the Drink Stations. They tend to get messy, quickly, and often there is a long line. The staff will help you get drinks if you ask them. Bring a jacket (required) for GRANDE. ICON rolled out the red carpet for our CRUISE CRITIC ROLL CALL group, complete with (unlimited) Champagne for a lovely lunch. The MEET & MINGLE Party was fun with very many nice door prizes, etc. The CRUISE DIRECTOR, ABE, was THE BEST CD, ever! Really did a top notch job with what started out to be a challenging cruise because of changes made due to weather conditions. The CREW went above and beyond to perform their duties. Everyone seemed Happy and went out of their way to acknowledge pax. The ANTHEM does have mobility-restrictions for certain amusements, so be advised. Best cruise ever!!
