The Anthem of the Seas will be a 4,900 passenger (maximum occupancy) cruise ship that will be among the largest in the world, only behind the mega Oasis Class. Being a sister ship to the Quantum of the Seas (voted best new cruise ship in 2014), the vessel will share many of the same innovations and technological advances.
The Anthem of the Seas will sail out of Southampton, England from April until late October before re-positioning to Cape Liberty, New Jersey.
The Norwegian Escape was voted the 2nd most anticipated new cruise ship for 2015. The Norwegian Escape will feature the largest waterpark and ropes course at sea, as well as the first Margaritaville on a cruise ship. The ship will begin sailing in the fall of 2015.
Coming in 3rd place was P&O Britannia. The Britannia will be the largest ship in P&O’s fleet at 142,000 gross tons. This 3,650 passenger cruise ship promises to be family friendly, combining signature features, modern design, and sophistication.
