The Anthem is a perfect mix of activities for both adults and kids.  The Seaplex is a multi use facility which changes hourly.  There is roller skating, bumper cars, trapeze lessons, basketball, soccer and more.  The second level of the Seaplex has ping pong, XBox stations, air hockey, foosball tables and a full arcade.  On the topside aft are the Flow Rider (surfing)and I Fly (simulated skydiving).  They are truly unique experiences for everyone.  Also, the Northstar is a glass enclosed room that goes 300 feet above the ship for a truly unique view.

Dining is a unique experience on the Anthem.  Instead of a large dining room they have created 4 smaller themed restaurants.  American Icon, Silk (Asian), Chic and Grande.  Reservations are required, which you can do online before sailing.  The specialty restaurants are amazing. Wonderland is ideal for adventurous foodies. Chops is a more formal steakhouse. But best of all was Jamies Italian. Be sure to order the black truffle pasta.The Windjammer was among the best buffets we have experienced. The solarium cafe, for adults, has a menu of healthy foods. 

The shows are awesome.  We Will Rock You was magnificent, but geared to adults.  The Gift and Spectras Cabaret are great high tech, although the kids found the sound to be too loud most of the time.

Don't miss the robot bartenders in the bionic bar.
