As we left Southampton and cruised around the English Channel we decided to start to explore the Anthem of the Seas . I was absolutely blown away by the beautiful décor. Around the ship there were snug areas where you can sit and relax with a book and watch the world go by.
As we explored the ship we discovered many futuristic and exciting facilities that we had never seen with any other cruise line before. The Bionic bar was one of my favourites it has ipads around the bar that you can order a cocktail from and you watch as the robotic arms make your chosen cocktail.
Another futuristic wow was a huge light filled with bulbs and their was a stand where you place your hands and the bulbs flash to coincide with your heartbeat. The more I saw the more I loved the ship. I decided to go and explore the solarium and relax for an hour or so and relax I certainly did!!! As I walked into the solarium a friendly staff member greeted me with a smile and an alcoholic shot of something warm and tropical tasting. I lay on a huge comfy bed that faced the huge windows so I had an amazing view of the sea and felt so calm and relaxed that I fell asleep whilst watching the waves.
As I dressed for dinner I eagerly anticipated my dining experience. I was not disappointed as I went into the main dining room we were greeted and seated by a very friendly waiter. He gave us a menu which was a sample of all the different restaurants onboard and I must say the food was outstanding and the waiter was more than attentive to our every needs.
After dinner we made our way to see the ‘We will rock you’ show I must say I have been on a few ships in my time but this was the best I had ever experienced!!! The Cast, Lighting & sound was amazing and I felt like I was at a Broadway show in London.
Overall I had a fantastic trip on the Anthem of the Seas I would certainly recommend this ship to anyone who likes luxury but certainly families, couples and passenger of all ages would enjoy this wonderful ship and the abundance of facilities and activities it has to offer.
