Anthem of the Seas going to Southampton

Recommended Posts

To say i'm happy is an understatement  :D  :D  :D  :D as soon as you can book we will be on the phone for a late 2015 cruise.

 

The only down side is that as she arrives the Independence will leave which is a shame as i really hoped that RC would expand the amount of ships based at Southampton  :( so our 2014 cruise may be the last time we sail on the Independence or the first time we cruise on Adventure.

Well if demand from UK is high then Royal Caribbean might think about placing more ships there.

We love the Independence and even though it was our first cruise with Royal Caribbean you just felt at home as the staff were amazing and the ship was way above what the other cruise lines we have sailed with offered.

 

Not sure what your itinerary is in October but we did the Canaries ( Vigo, Lisbon, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Funchal & La Coruna) in late October this year and it was fantastic. The weather was good and in the high 80s in the Canaries. If you need to know anything just let me know and i will give you as much info as i can.

 

How did you find the difference between Voyager and Freedom class ?

Not a lot to chose between them, only real difference is that Voyager class do not have Flowrider or cantilever whirlpools.

We have sailed on every Voyager and Freedom class ship and tell them apart by the car or motorcycle on Main street.

 

Has any one a photo of the Car!! that was on Mariner before revitalization? Its the only one I don't have in my collection.

 

Anthem of the Seas is a real boost for all of us in the UK and we will be sure to book as soon as available.

 

Keep on Cruising

I was reading some posts on the internet (a reputable source of information if I've ever seen one) and some people think Anthem will go to UK when she is ready. 

 

Anyone heard anything?

How time has flown since RCL4Life posted the above and how right we all were. I can't wait till next year when she arrives at Southampton. I will be sad to see the Independence go but what a fantastic ship that is going to replace her.

Always fun to look back at old rumor posts

Yes news broke back in March or so when they released all the itineraries and had to backtrack on prior statements.

 

Quantum to NJ for this winter then off to China.

Anthem to do next summer (2015) in UK, then to NJ for the winter to replace Quantum.

 

Anthem is "expected" to go back to UK for Summer 2016 as far as I know although the schedule hasn't been released that far out so its speculation.

 

No idea on Quantum 3 :)

Hey, for those of you who are interested: Anthem of the Seas arrived at the Columbus Cruise Center in Bremerhaven, Germany last night. :)
I got to catch it on camera, eventhough it was a little bit dark ;)
This is the video link:

Hopefully I can film again within the next days :)
Greetings from Germany
