The big news this week was Royal Caribbean's decision to remove Devinly Decadence on Anthem of the Seas just before the New Year.
Celebrity chef Devin Alexander confirmed that the restaurant was being removed from Anthem of the Seas due to a conflict in commitments.
Devinly Decadence was among the initial restaurants announced for its Quantum class ships and started out as a specialty restaurant on Quantum of the Seas.
