With the Quantum of the Seas already patrolling the waters of the world, Royal Caribbean is prepping its sister ship for debut later on this year, and it’s called Anthem of the Seas. Just like the Quantum of the Seas, this boat is going to be fully loaded with all of the things passengers have come to expect from this amazing cruise line.
In addition to an onboard surfing and skydiving simulators, passengers will be able to visit the SeaPlex, which will feature bumper cars and roller-skating. Also, Royal Caribbean is promising “smart entertainment”, and many of the entertainment venues that passengers can visit on board will be fully interactive as a result. What’s more is that the ship is set to feature robotic bartenders in the Bionic Bar, like the ones that can be found on the Quantum of the Seas.
So, let’s take a look at the newest cruise ship in Royal Caribbean’s line, which is set to debut in a few short months. While many of its features will be familiar to those who have travelled on the Quantum of the Seas, it’s cool to check them out all the same!
