Get an exclusive sneak peek here.

You might have heard the buzz. Or even seen an early glimpse. But you haven’t really seen our brand-new ship, Anthem of the Seas, until now.

She received her finishing touches in Southampton, England, before her first guests set sail on April 22. There are more rooms onboard than the tallest hotel in the world (2,090 to be exact), she’s 2.5 times the height of the great Pyramid of Giza (348 meters tall) and almost as wide as three basketball courts.

But there’s more to Anthem than just the numbers. Check it out.
