Statue of Liberty watches Anthem of the Seas arriving
Lady Liberty oversees the arrival of Anthem of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International’s second Quantum-class ship – Anthem of the Seas – and the second to call New York home, recently sailed into the ‘city that never sleeps’ under the cloak of darkness, passengers greeted by the iconic Statue of Liberty.

Now calling Cape Liberty Cruise Port as her year-round home after an initial season in Southampton, Anthem of the Seas follows her sister ship Quantum of the Seas into the New York market.

The 18-deck, 4,180-passenger megaship will take passengers to far-flung shores including the Bahamas, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Mexico, Puerto Rico and more on itineraries ranging in duration from seven to 12 nights.

Features available to passengers include The North Star – a London Eye-style capsule which utilizes a giant arm to raise guests high above and to the side of the ship. Other amenities include RipCord by iFly skydiving, the Two70 entertainment venue and much more.

Onboard, passengers will enjoy one of the most technologically advanced ships in the fleet, including the ability to pre-book seats at a variety of restaurants and theatre shows. The line’s VOOM internet service is touted as one of the best available at sea, with RFID technology able to help passengers track their baggage from embarkation all the way to their stateroom.
