Anthem of the Seas is the sister ship of Quantum of the Seas, the biggest launch of 2014. With Anthem, which debuted in 2015, Royal Caribbean took the best features of Quantum while adding a few new ones as well. The ship sails to the Caribbean, Bermuda, and Canada/New England.
Technology is what makes Anthem special; the broadband access is 10 times faster than what every other line has, and reasonable in price. There's also no more fumbling around for your ID card when you need to enter your cabin or charge an item. The new passenger wristbands have replaced the old cards, and make locking yourself out of your cabin a much more difficult feat. The ship also uses technology to improve embarkation, allowing you to check in at home, upload a photo so you don’t have to commemorate your just-off-a-plane dishevelment, and sail through customs. Ideally, you can go from the terminal to your cabin in 10 minutes. Once onboard, use the line’s app to track your suitcase.
Anthem of the Seas is perfect for fun-seeking adults and families. It has more activities than you could ever do in a week, including a surfing simulator, rock climbing wall, North Star (a robotic arm that takes passengers on a 15-minute ride into the sky), and the popular skydiving simulator. The sports complex also houses bumper cars and arcade games.
In addition to the traditional dining room and lido buffet, some complimentary restaurants aboard Anthem of the Seas include The Dog House serving up several styles of hot dogs, Sorrento’s Pizza, The Cafe at Two70, and pastries and other bites at Cafe Promenade. Specialty venues include Jamie’s Italian, a modern, yet rustic Italian restaurant in partnership with Chef Jamie Oliver; Izumi Japanese Cuisine, Chops Grille, and the first American gastropub at sea, Michael’s Genuine Pub. The star of the specialty show, though, is without a doubt Wonderland. Venture down the rabbit hole into a venue where food is so unusual and beautiful, you may pinch yourself to see if you’re dreaming.
Quantum-class ships have a lot of cabin categories. Here, you’ll find a whopping 34. Some inside cabins have “virtual balconies” with 80-inch LED screens that project the view from the deck. The ship also has a few studio cabins for single travelers, and more interconnected staterooms for families and large groups.
For those who want to splurge, the suites include everything from practical family-friendly junior suites — with a modular design that gives kids and parents, or traveling friends, separate areas — to impressive, two-story, loft-style designs that feel like penthouse apartments and come with their own outdoor dining space. Suite guests also have a private seafood restaurant, Coastal Kitchen.
