SOUTHAMPTON: World’s third largest cruise ship Anthem of the Seas arrived in UK, local media reported on Wednesday.
According to details, the ship was packed with robot bartenders at Southampton docks.
Ahead of its naming ceremony, which will take place on April 20, the mammoth ocean liner has reached its berth: the 101 in Southampton Docks, which will be its home port for the summer season.
As many as 80,000 people are expected to travel on this Royal Caribbean owned ship this summer.
With 18 decks and a capacity for almost 5,000 passengers at a time, the MS Anthem of the Seas, is truly an engineering marvel.
On board, guests will experience robotic bartenders, be able to take part in circus skills training activities and even go on a virtual sky dive.
‘Ships like Anthem of the Seas will help attract new groups of people and build the future of cruising.
The UK and Ireland is our second largest market and with over 1.7 million Britons now taking a cruise every year, it has huge importance for our business.’
The company also said that they expect the ship to deliver around £50 million to the Southampton economy during the upcoming season.
