Miami-based cruise line Royal Caribbean International has marked the launch of Anthem of the Seas with a naming ceremony led by Emma Wilby, a British travel agent who was selected to be the ship’s Godmother in a singing competition for travel agents.
Emma took center stage during the ceremony together with Welsh choir Only Boys Aloud to deliver the performance of her life, Royal Caribbean said in a release.
Anthem of the Seas spans 18 decks, encompasses 167,800 gross registered tons, carries 4,180 guests at double occupancy and features 2,090 staterooms.
The ship will sail out of Southampton, UK for her inaugural season before departing for New York Harbor and her new homeport of Cape Liberty Cruise Port in Bayonne, New Jersey.
