Anthem of the Seas deck plans
Deck layouts, review of facilities, activities, amenities
Anthem of the Seas deck plan review at CruiseMapper provides newest cruise deck plans (floor layouts of the vessel) extracted from the officially issued by Royal Caribbean deckplan pdf (printable version).
Each of the Anthem of the Seas cruise ship deck plans are conveniently combined with a legend (showing cabin codes) and detailed review of all the deck's venues and passenger-accessible indoor and outdoor areas. A separate link provides an extensive information on Anthem of the Seas staterooms (cabins and suites), including photos, cabin plans and amenities by room type and category.
Anthem of the Seas (built 2015) is the second of the Quantum-class Royal Caribbean cruise ships (the project’s former name was “Project Sunshine”) – together with Quantum of the Seas (2014) and Ovation of the Seas (2016). RCI’s Quantum-class ships (builder Meyer Werft Germany) as capacity and size (GT tonnage) are similar to the MSC Cruises largest Vista-class ship MSC Meraviglia (builder STX Europe, France). Next is shown a Quantum-class ship as looked from above.
Note: CruiseMapper's Anthem Of The Seas deck plans are valid for the period 2018-2019 (April 28 through October 24).
The Anthem cruise ship has a total of 2090 staterooms for 4180 passengers (4905 max capacity), 1500 crew/staff, 4 swimming pools (1 covered with retractable roof), 10 jacuzzies, 16 elevators, 18 dining options, also the RCI’s feature Rock Climbing Wall and Flowrider.
- In comparison to the fleetmates, Quantum ships don't have the following signature RCI facilities: Ice Rink, Bowling, Zip-Line, Water Slides, Rope Course, Golf Simulator, Boxing Ring, Smoking Lounge, Royal Viking Crown (Observation Lounge). The traditional Royal Promenade is replaced by a 2-decks high walkway (location decks 4-5, connected with staircases). The new walkway passes through the center (roughly half of the vessel’s length). New dining venues replace RCI’s traditional Main Dining Room concept and serve the new “Dynamic Dining” concept.
- Several dining venues replace the traditional Main Dining Rooms with the Royal Caribbean’s new “Rotational Dining” system. This was implemented to replace the previous “Dynamic Dining” concept. The new Rotational Dining system allows guests to dine at different restaurants (complimentary venues only) each night on the ship (based on a rotational dining schedule). Just like on Disney ships, Anthem cruise ship passengers are served by the same wait staff and enjoy the same table companions each evening.
- In March 2018, due to contract conclusion (between RCI and celebrity chef Michael Schwartz), the Anthem ship's "Michael’s Genuine Pub" (midship on Lobby Deck 4) was renamed to "Brass and Bock Pub".
All Quantum-class "WOW ships" feature numerous unique facilities and onboard activities (never available at sea before), including:
- the “RipCord” (located on deck 16) – the sky-diving simulator
- the “North Star” (located on deck 15) – the above ship observation capsule for 360° ocean views
- the “SeaPlex” (located on decks 15 and 16) – the bumper cars in the largest sports complex at sea
- “Two70°” (located on decks 5 through 7) – big-size LED screens and glass walls allowing live panoramic views
- the new Interior cabin type called “Virtual Balcony” (decks 7 through 11)
- new Studio cabins with balconies (with single occupancy rates for solo travelers)
- multi-million dollar onboard art collection
- RFID cabin door locks and RFID wristbands (an optional choice to replace the traditional SeaPass cards) allowing passengers to purchase items on the ship and access into their cabins. The new wristbands are placed in envelopes in the passenger rooms.
- New entertainment option on the Anthem ship is the “Escape the Rubicon” – an interactive gaming room part of the Fuel Teen lounge on deck 15. The participants are locked in the room and must work together to solve puzzles, find hidden clues and eventually to find the key and escape the room. The game’s capacity is 6-12 players. The experience is between 60 to 90 min.
