…that’s Anthem of the Seas (picture) latest addition to the Royal Caribbean fleet. For the 5,000 passengers, there’s every kind of amusement from onboard surfing (really), dodgems and climbing walls… not forgetting the extraordinary North Star, a pod on a long arm that can swing you right out over the passing sea! And then – all the food you can eat and a great deal more that you should (one seasoned passenger carries two sets of clothes on his cruises – with one two sizes up for when he disembarks…) But of course you don’t have to do that – just enjoy the ship, which is a technical marvel. Big thanks to Royal Caribbean’s super Kathryn Neilson for facilitating our visit, and to her son Matt (Second Officer) and Cadet Robert Mackin-Lang for a great day on board.
