Royal Caribbean Deploys Anthem of The Seas for UK Sailings

Royal Caribbean International is setting a spectacular soundtrack this summer with its return to the UK.

The cruise line has announced that Anthem of the Seasa firm favourite in the region, will begin sailing from Southampton, England as soon as this 7th July.

Plus, in recognition of the tremendous efforts of the emergency services, National Health Service (NHS), social care sector and armed forces over the last year, Royal Caribbean will offer 999 free staterooms on its first Ocean Getaways to those UK residents in these professions.

Pre-registration for guests eligible for one of the 999 free staterooms open on 13th April, and final names will be drawn from a ballot by the end of April. Overall bookings open on 7th April. 

“The UK is a place we hold near and dear to our heart at Royal Caribbean. We miss our UK guests and are as eager as they are to get back to cruising from Southampton,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

“We are delighted with the UK government’s recent announcements regarding cruising and excited to set sail again with a phenomenal ship and favourite such as Anthem of the Seas. After a tough year, we all need a holiday, but no one more so than the emergency services, NHS, social care sector and armed forces who will have the long-awaited opportunity to get away and relax with total peace of mind.”

The cruises will be available to UK residents who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and those under the age of 18 with negative test results. The cruise line will set sail with a fully vaccinated crew with suitable protocols in place.
