NEWS: Royal Caribbean is extending its British Isles sailings for Anthem of the Seas through October 2021. Since early July, Anthem has been sailing from Southampton and welcoming thousands of U.K. residents on board.
Starting in September, eligible international guests will also be able to set sail from Southampton, subject to the latest travel guidelines from the U.K. government and their country of residence.
Royal Caribbean is extending its British Isles sailings for Anthem of the Seas and guests on board Anthem’s 5- to 7-night British Isles sailings can experience the perfect mix of British culture and breath taking natural scenery at ports of call such as Liverpool, England; Belfast, Northern Ireland; and Kirkwall and Glasgow, Scotland. Anthem’s extended season is open for bookings today.
“We are thrilled with the response to our Royal Caribbean holidays from the U.K. Since recommencing sailings in early July, our British Isles itineraries have achieved peak guest satisfaction levels. Anthem of the Seas is an incredible ship and very popular with U.K. guests, so we have seen excellent demand from families wanting a holiday like no other this summer,” said Ben Bouldin, vice president EMEA, Royal Caribbean International.
“We welcome the recent update from the U.K. government, which lifted advice against international cruise travel. While this marks a positive step forward in the global return of cruise, there are still complexities to navigate when calling at multiple European ports of call from the U.K. This, coupled with the popularity of our British Isles sailings to date, has led to our decision to extend our sailings around the British Isles, and I’m delighted to welcome international guests to experience these itineraries, starting in September.”

All guests must provide negative test results before boarding.
