Anthem of the Seas
Anthem of the Seas is Royal Caribbean's brand new cruise ship that is under construction and a member of the Quantum class of cruise ships. Anthem of the Seas will have her first cruise in spring 2015, with a homeport of Southampton in the summer and Fort Lauderdale in the winter.
Two70, Royal Caribbean's transformative space onboard Anthem of the Seas fuses highly advanced robotic and projected technology with live performance, creating an unparalleled entertainment experience on land or sea.
Royal Caribbean senior vice president of sales, Vicki Freed, is asking the help of travel agents to name the arms of the robotic arms that "work" in the Bionic Bar aboard Anthem of the Seas.
Freed posted the contest on her Facebook page and is offering the winner of the contest a chance to win a stateroom on an Anthem of the Seas inaugural sailing from New York.
The contest is open from July 27 through August 3.
Each travel partner is limited to one submission for one arm. The winner will be awarded a stateroom on an Anthem Inaugural sailing for the 11/8 sailing.
Vicki will announce the winners the week of 8/10 on Facebook as well as Loyal To You Always.
The contest is only open to travel agents but what would you name the robotic bartenders?

Royal Caribbean's Anthem of the Seas had its high-speed internet access enabled while the ship is in the Mediterranean, according to O3b Networks.
O3b uses a new type of sattelite internet that reduces latency, increases internet speed and improves voice and video quality for the user.
O3bMaritime has already provided four of Royal Caribbean’s ships (Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas,Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas), each with more bandwidth than the rest of the cruise industry combined. In the near future, Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas will move across the Pacific, bringing exceptional cruising experiences and at-sea high speed broadband to the Japanese ports of Okinawa and Kyoto, as well as other Asian destinations.
Royal Caribbean President and CEO Michael Bayley commented on the partnership with O3b, "With O3b we have added a dimension to cruising that has never existed before. Our new internet capabilities allow our guests to surf, stream and share their vacation experiences with their friends and family back home. It also allows us to provide our business clientele a new way to stay connected with their colleagues."

Royal Caribbean has reversed a change on its newest cruise ship, Anthem of the Seas, by going back to a cover charge at its Jamie's Italian specialty restaurant.
The cover charge for a meal at Jamie's Italian will be $30 per person.
Cruise Critic is reporting Royal Caribbean brought back the cover chanrge instead of an a la carte pricing structure.
When Jamie's Italian first debuted on sister ship Quantum of the Seas, the restaurant featured a cover charge but when Anthem of the Seas debuted, the restaurant pricing shifted to an a la carte structure.
According to Cruise Critic, the decision to go to an a la carte pricing in the first place was made by Jamie Oliver's team.
