Royal Caribbean International’s Anthem of the Seas is set to return to the UK in 2020, Cruise Adviser understands.
The Quantum-class ship was based in Southampton after it launched in 2015. The 4,905-passenger ship was christened by Emma Wilby, a Thomson travel agent.
Anthem of the Seas will be based in Southampton from Spring 2020.
Key features on board the ship include the North Star, a viewing pod that ascends 300ft above sea level; dodgems; Rip Cord by iFly, a skydiving simulator; and Bionic Barmen. The ship also has the innovative Two70, which features six 12K resolution roboscreens that move in front of the audience.
Speaking at the launch of Anthem of the Seas, Stuart Leven, then managing director at Royal Caribbean International, said: “Anthem of the Seas is designed to deliver what today’s holidaymakers want – new kinds of experiences and adventures, whether you’re travelling alone or as a family. Ships like Anthem of the Seas will help attract new groups of people and build the future of cruising.”
Further details will be revealed later this month.
