Just got off from Anthem yesterday and already miss it!
Our last cruise was 3 years ago at Independence with extended family and we only booked this cruise 2 months ago wondering if it will be the same but it turned out to be absolute success. This time it was for family of 4 including myself husband and 7,11 years old children.
At terminal we were told it is about four thousand something passengers and busy ship, but didn't really feel overly crowded. Of course if you go to windjammer around 10:30 there is long q as well as some complimentary activities but other than that it was pleasantly crowded with family with children as well as adults only crowd.
