Royal Caribbean’s second Quantum-class ship may still be under construction, but cruisers can start booking cruises on her from late February this year.

Anthem of the Seas’ first itineraries are out. They commence from April next year when she is launched.

Joining Adventure of the Seas and Brilliance of the Seas she will be based in the UK.

Her European home port will be Southampton, where she will make 19 cruises to the Spanish, French and Italian rivieras and the Canary Islands.

Itineraries will vary from three-to-16-night itineraries. Royal Caribbean members can book her European cruises from 26 February 2014 and general public sales will commence from 3 March 2014.

Following her season in Europe, Anthem will reposition to the Caribbean in late-October 2015.

She will be based out of Fort Lauderdale and will sail five-night short Caribbean, six-night Western Caribbean and eight-night Eastern Caribbean itineraries through to April 2016.

Caribbean cruises will go on sale for members from 12 March 2014.
