Anthem of the Seas is a beautiful new ship. Plenty of activities and high end entertainment on board. The idea of the virtual balcony in the inside cabins is fantastic. We found the Windjammer, the buffet on the 14 deck, to have many good and savory choices for breakfast and lunch. The 12 nights Southern Caribbean itinerary is good, although we didn't care much for Labadee and Martinique.
Food in the complimentary restaurants is not good. Royal Caribbean pushes heavily the packages for the pay restaurants. Didn't we pay for good food already? The center of the Explenade, the concourse on deck 4, is occupied with a few mobile sales counters, very busy every day with the sale of junk items. It resembles a flea marker more than an elegant town square, which the ship deserves.
