About the Ship:
We will be sailing onboard the incomparable Anthem of the Seas. This amazing ship debuted in 2001 and is among the world’s larger ships, with a range of the most uncruise-like venues at sea. Ambience and variety are key on this ship. There is something for everyone – all age ranges, all activity levels, and all interests. Every day onboard Anthem of the Seas® is like embarking on a whole new adventure. Yesterday’s roller skating at SeaPlex® is today’s bumper cars — or circus school. And tonight’s mesmerizing roboshow at Two70® is completely different from tomorrow’s Vistarama® experience. Throw in a culinary scene to rival most metropolitan cities, and you’ve got a game changing vacation that transforms every day into the best yet.
