On any given day, the view from Anthem of the Seas’ Two70 entertainment venue is breathtaking, thanks to the three-story, floor-to-ceiling windows that give guests a 270-degree panorama of the sky and sea. You’d think that impressive daytime views are enough, but this space pulls double duty—every night, Two70 is transformed into a high-tech entertainment space like you’ve never seen.

When the curtain goes up, you’ll find more than just talented live performers. Six graceful Roboscreens controlled by robotic arms and 18 video projectors create an immersive experience that feels like a 3-D movie and a Broadway show combined. Incredibly, the budget for the technology alone on this ship is more than the original cost of Royal’s Caribbean’s entire first vessel.

Technology featured in Two70 is truly groundbreaking. In terms of robotics, it is the most complex project on the planet right now. Robot experts (yes, they exist!) said that screens like these wouldn’t function at sea because of the ship’s movement, but the engineers at Robotic Arts refined the technology to keep the robots moving flawlessly.
