Surf, skydive, ascend 300 feet in a gondola and top off the day with a drink served by a bionic bartender. It’s all aboard Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas, now sailing 7- and 12-day itineraries in the Bahamas and Caribbean from Bayonne, New Jersey.
Passengers on the 2,090-stateroom ship can surf or boogie board in the giant wave machine, the FlowRider, or “skydive” in the RipCord by iFLY. The North Star, a jewel-shaped gondola, ascends 300 feet for 360-degree views.
Order a cocktail on an iPad and two mechanical arm robots, named Shaken and Stirred, mix it for you.
