Anthem of the Seas Sailings from Southampton in Summer 2023

One of Royal Caribbean’s most well-known ships, the Quantum-class Anthem of the Seas has some of the fleet’s very best activities and amenities, including neon-lit skydiving sessions on Ripcord by iFly, immersive virtual vistas, imaginative cocktails and roboshows at Two70 Bar, 90m views from North Star Bar, thrilling entertainment including ‘We Will Rock You’ and round-the-world dining ranging from sashimi to Italian.

Sailing from the UK with Royal Caribbean in summer 2023 allows you to avoid the queues and potential delays of airports as well as luggage restrictions. Anthem of the Seas’ sailings from Southampton in summer are excellent ways to see Northern European gems such as the Norwegian fjords or further-flung destinations including the Canaries. You can even grab yourself a cruise taster with a two-night getaway to Paris – a great way to dip your toe in the water of cruise holidays.

The Royal Caribbean Experience   

All Royal Caribbean vessels have roomy pool decks, giving you plenty of scope to seek out a peaceful spot on complimentary loungers in the sun or the shade to enjoy live music and tropical cocktails. Food and drink are among the standouts of any Royal Caribbean holiday: our favourites include Izumi Sushi with its handcrafted rolls, fresh sashimi and nigiri, Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver, with home-made pastas, and the exclusive Chef’s Table, inviting you to taste your way through five courses paired with wine, all presented by the ship’s head chef.

There are also find plenty of buzzing bars onboard, from the Bionic Bar® with its cocktails shaken up by robots to North Star Bar with its space-inspired drinks. The entertainment also lives up to the hype, whether it’s Spectra’s Cabaret with its state-of-the-at blend of lights, music and tech or the Olivier Award-winning musical We Will Rock You, showcasing iconic Queen ballads.

There’s also plenty of opportunity to focus on fitness and wellbeing if you want to, with world-class exercise classes and Technogym equipment.  And when you’re in the  mood for winding down, Vitality Spa beckons with massages, body wraps and facials, including the YSpa programme especially for tweens and teens.

Discover the Canaries Aboard Anthem of the Seas: 10/9, 21/9 or 3/10/23

These Spanish islands sit more than 1600km from the mainland and feel like another world, with rugged volcanic landscapes, desert areas, dense forests, spectacular beaches and natural salt-water pools. From scuba-diving amidst octopus and barracudas to feasting on local fare accompanied by a glass of sangria in a seafront restaurant, the Canaries are always a delight – and a Royal Caribbean cruise from Southampton is a great way to see them.
