Luxury family cruise holidays aboard Anthem of the Seas

When are family staycations not staycations? When they’re four-night Ocean Getaways aboard spectacular Anthem of the Seas, sailing round the British Isles with everything on-board from surfing and skydiving to the fun of SeaPlex: the largest indoor activity centre at sea. Longer UK cruises are also available from mid-July giving you the option of five-to-eight-night family holidays, again aboard Anthem of the Seas.

Try everything from surfing to skydiving round the British Isles

All cruises sail from Southampton and featured destinations include Liverpool, Belfast and the beautiful Orkney Islands. Ocean Getaways are perfect for first-time family cruise holidays or if your sea legs need some gentle reviving after the long 2020 travel break. And longer cruises simply give you more time to enjoy everything that makes Anthem of the Seas one of the world’s most popular family cruise ships.

Safe family cruise holidays are always priority for Royal Caribbean

Over 50,000 passengers have cruised with Royal Caribbean since it returned to sailing in December 2020. So if you have any concerns over safety, that success rate should put your mind at ease. However, it’s also good to know that all Royal Caribbean crew are fully vaccinated; adult passengers must have both COVID-19 vaccinations prior to their departure date and children under the age of 18 require proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

Booking for both 4-night Ocean Getaways and 5-to-8-night British Isles’ cruises opens on 7 April 2021. If you’re a Blue Light Card holder, Royal Caribbean have put aside 999 free staterooms on their first Ocean Getaways this summer to thank you for your service over the past 12 months – register by 13 April 2021 for your name to be entered into the 999 ballot.
