Fly from Dublin, Cork or Shannon and board Anthem Of The Seas in Southampton for a seven-night cruise to France and Spain. 

Located on England's South Coast, Southampton is a city full of surprises. Home to one of the largest ports in Europe, the city has a lot to offer people passing through for the day. Check out SeaCity Museum, or venture out and explore the Hampshire countryside: Iconic Stonehenge is just a one-hour drive away.

Head to southwestern France to see the town that is known all over the world for its wine. The historic part of this lively university city is the world's largest urban World Heritage Site. Stroll around the elegant Place de la Bourse with its beautiful 18th-century limestone palaces and continue on to the public gardens that are situated near the quays of the river Garonne.

The new and the old meet head-on in Bilbao – the unofficial capital of Basque country in Spain's northwest, near southern France. Once an industrial capital, the opening of the Guggenheim in 1997 propelled Bilbao into a hub of outstanding art, architecture and gastronomy.

Perched on a rocky peninsula in Spain's northwest, La Coruna is brimming with ancient Roman heritage and maritime history. Head to the Crystal City, located right near the harbour, and check out the galerias — the city is famous for these 19th-century enclosed glass balconies that reflect the glittering waters of the Atlantic. 

Paris is an iconic city – a melange of everything artistic and sublime, with a worldwide reputation for excellence in cuisine, fashion, architecture and the fine arts. After you take the drive in from the port (just over two hours), hit the streets to see the city's monumental landmarks. Cruise back to Southampton and catch your homeward flight.

Anthem of the Seas® isn't the same old song. It's a thrill ride that packs in cutting edge experiences – like North Star®, which gives you 360-degree views from 90 metres above sea level. And flavour firsts, like creative fare at Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine. Plus showstoppers like We Will Rock You.

Defy gravity with a free-falling experience on Ripcord® by iFLY®. Practise your surf skills on the FlowRider® surf simulator. Score views 90 metres above sea level in North Star®. And witness a spellbinding show in Two70®.

This is a culinary scene to rival many metropolitan cities. Get your family-style fix at Jamie's Italian by Jamie Oliver, and sip cocktails crafted by robots at the Bionic Bar®. Venture down the rabbit hole at Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine. Or dine like a VIP at Coastal Kitchen – exclusively for suites guests and Pinnacle Club members.


Anthem of the Seas® has its very own art installation in the form of Gigi – a 10-metre tall carbon fibre giraffe created by French artist Jean Francois Fourtou. Sporting a stylish swimsuit and buoy (and a custom airbrush paint job), Gigi presides over deck 15 – higher than the Statue of Liberty - where she can be admired by guests up close.


Foodies rejoice because Anthem of the Seas® has all the cuisine you could ever dream of. Tuck into rustic Italian fare at Jamie’s Italian or transport your taste buds to Japan, with fresh sushi and sashimi at Izumi. And for a truly unforgettable dining experience, venture down the rabbit hole to Wonderland, where chefs stretch their imagination to create a menu of whimsical dishes. Or if it’s something simple and classic you’re craving, devour a gourmet picnic with a delicious view at The Café @ Two70.


It’s up to you. You can dress your best and dine in style, or choose from a variety of other restaurants. Enjoy truly unforgettable evenings onboard Anthem of the Seas® with a host of fantastic entertainment, including live music, West End shows and state-of-the-art entertainment in our amazing Two70 venue! Remember to consult your Cruise Compass for an up-to-date guide to all the events happening across the ship.


Choose My Time Dining for the freedom to select your own dining time and table companions on a daily basis between 6pm and 9.30pm – this doesn’t have to be the same every night. If you prefer the more traditional style of dining you can choose either an early or late seating. You’ll have the convenience of the same dining time each night, with the same wait staff and dining companions at your table throughout the cruise.
