Anthem of the Seas

Anthem of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International has pioneered the use of innovation in all aspects of ship design throughout its history – and the Anthem of the Seas  is no different. Spanning 18 decks, at 167,800 gross registered tons and a capacity of 4180 guests (double occupancy), Anthem is just a bit bigger than the popular Freedom class ships.  Royal Caribbean has delivered incredible “firsts" at sea for decades such as the Rock Climbing Wall, ice-skating rink, FlowRider surf simulator, Central Park and the AquaTheater – and this new class of ship will reveal many more with new signature venues that transform from day to night; providing rich experiences that evolve throughout a cruise vacation. And there’s the new generation of staterooms including the largest staterooms in the fleet (Interior, Ocean View, & Balcony) and new accommodations that give more flexibility to active families, multigenerational families, or groups of friends traveling together. With the introduction of Quantum and Anthem of the Seas , Royal Caribbean takes WOW innovations to new heights with more “Firsts at Sea". Literally – with the unveiling of North Star, an awe-inspiring experience where a jewel-like glass capsule take guests on a spectacular journey more than 300 feet in the air above sea level, which is comparable to the height of the New York’s Statue of Liberty, to deliver unprecedented 360 degree views.
