Discovering that performing on luxury liners was a great way to see the world, Anello spent several years circumnavigating the globe on some of the finest cruise ships in the world, including Cunard Lines' QE2, Crystal Cruises, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and Costa Cruise Lines. During this period, the writing skills that were first noted by Bobby Darin began to develop as it gave her something to do between performances and helped increase her ability to communicate with audiences on a more personal level.
