Cruise ships just keep on getting bigger and better, don’t they? It seems like every month that goes by, there’s another cruise ship taking to the seas that offers more and better. Well, when it comes to this department, there’s one ship that’s really made the effort to stand head and shoulders above the rest, and it’s called the Anthem of the Seas.
The Anthem of the Seas recently took to the open ocean, and now we’re starting to get a clearer picture of what’s on board and what passengers can look forward to.
Below, we’ve collected 25 absolutely stunning pictures of the ship and its many amenities and luxury features. We think you’ll see why many people are saying that the Anthem of the Seas just might be the greatest cruise ship ever built, better even than the already critically-acclaimed Oasis of the Seas.
So, come take a brief tour of Royal Caribbean’s newest ship with us, and see for yourself why you should book passage on it sooner rather than later.
1. She’s A Big One!
The Anthem of the Seas is the latest in Royal Caribbean’s line of cruiseships, and she’s the most tricked out of them all!
2. Beautiful Environments
There are a number of things to gawk at while you’re aboard the Anthem of the Seas, chief among them the stunning Solarium.
3. Get Excited
Ever wanted to try skydiving but have been afraid to actually do it? Well, you can give the experience a test run on the ship’s simulator!
4. Surf’s Up
Or you can get a flavor for another extreme sport: surfing. There’s a simulator for this up on deck, as well!
5. Soar To New Heights
One of the hallmark features of Anthem of the Seas (and the other Quantum-class ships) is the North Star, which will take you up into the air for unparalleled views.
6. The Main Pool
Of course, you might just want to chill out for a few. Thankfully, the main pool up on deck is a real stunner, offering plenty of places to lounge and relax.
7. More Fun
Near the main pool, you’ll also find an exciting rock climbing wall. You won’t be able to miss it due to the tall giraffe standing right next to it!
That big yellow giraffe you just saw is only one of many examples of stunning artwork aboard the ship.
9. The Future Is Now
Need a drink? Well, you can order one through your tablet anywhere on the ship. Your cocktail will then be mixed and served by a pair of robot bartenders.
10. Kid Stuff
When it comes to entertainment, there may be no cooler place on board than the SeaPlex, which features bumper cars!
11. Stay Active
Those who want to stay active while on vacation will appreciate the Anthem of the Seas’ jogging track, which runs for several kilometers.
12. Your Name Up In Lights
If you snap a particularly tasty pic of you and your travel companions on Instagram, you can share it on the ship’s huge outdoor screen.
13. Relieve Your Stress
Just as you might expect, the Anthem of the Seas is home to one heck of a spa, which offers all the treatments and amenities you could ever want.
14. More Fitness
The spa area is also where you’ll find the ship’s gym, which will likely put the one you use at home to shame.
15. Center of the Action
Below deck, the center of action is the Royal Esplanade, where the expense of building the ship is readily apparent.
16. Foodie’s Delight
There are plenty of stunning restaurants aboard the Anthem of the Seas, including Silk which serves up some exceptional pan-Asian fare.
17. Down The Rabbit Hole
One of the coolest spots onboard, though, is Wonderland, which is inspired by the Lewis Carroll story.
You can give Jamie Oliver’s restaurant a try. It’s rather predictably called “Jamie’s Kitchen”.
19. Casual Fun
Hey, it doesn’t have to be all high-class food when you’re on a cruise! We recommend this hidden gem – a bus up on deck that’s actually a hot dog stand!
20. Late Night Games
Those who don’t mind risking a little to get their kicks will appreciate the Anthem of the Seas’ massive casino.
21. Follow Up With A Show
After hitting the casino, you can have an authentic Las Vegas experience by catching a show in Spectra’s Cabaret.
22. More Shows
That’s not the only place to go for a show, though. For example, there’s this gem, which features performers from Circe du Soleil.
23. Loft Space
If you and your travel companions want a lot of space in your accommodations, then you’d be well advised to book one of the loft suites.
24. Keeping It Simple
Of course, you can save some money by going with one of the ship’s regular staterooms. They’re certainly nice!
25. Welcome Aboard!
Without a doubt, the new Anthem of the Seas is one of the coolest ships on the oceans today. Maybe you ought to book passage and check it out for yourself?
