The newest of Royal Caribbean International’s cruise ship, the Anthem of the Seas was christened on April 20, 2015 in Southampton, UK. The festive christening showcased talent in the form of a boy band, DJ, Scottish pipers and the cast from the Queen musical entitled, “We Will Rock You.”
The Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean, Richard Fain, commented on the new cruise ship addition. He said, “I believe . . . the architects and contractors have taken a ship design and turned it into a masterpiece.”
The 4,180 passenger ship will offer future cruise-goers with a memorable cruise ship experience, all of which will include exemplary cruise ship catering and services. The ship is scheduled for its first revenue cruise journey on April 22, 2015. At that time, the ship’s itinerary is slated for a number of Mediterranean cruise journeys.
