Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas – I sailed 2 days on this ship November 8.

I really enjoyed the newest ship. Royal Caribbean is now offering amenities for suites which are bi-level. Besides inside (which has the changing picture frame outside and balcony cabins they now offer smaller 1 person cabins. This ship also has adjoining cabins in different categories for family travel

New items on ship are:

* Rip cord –sky dive simulator
* Simples sports complex which changes from bumper cars to roller skating to tennis to gymnastics and circus acts.
* Nothstar is a enclosed platform that takes you up 300 feet above ship
* Kids club is excellent and they also have the 2 foot kiddie pool
* Shows are good and in 270 room shows are incredible. In 270 there is no back stage so the performers come from ceiling or up an elevator under stage
