Anthem of the Seas deck plans review will show you the current position of Anthem of the Seas cruise ship, actual location of cabins and facilities by deck, along with information on Royal Caribbean Anthem ship rooms sizes, types and categories (codes).
Anthem of the Seas (built 2015) is the second of the Quantum-class Royal Caribbean cruise ships (the project’s former name was “Project Sunshine”) – together with the Quantum cruise ship (2014) and Ovation of the Seas (2016). This is an outbound link to the Quantum ship official page at RoyalCaribbean.com.
Anthem of the Seas cruise ship rooms
Because of the new Quantum-class ships design, the Anthem cruise ship rooms, just like those of the RCCL Quantum and Ovation, will be ~9% (on average) bigger than the staterooms on both Oasis-class ships – Allure and Oasis.
Below is the Anthem’s sister Quantum ship decks layout infographic (click on image to enlarge). Think of it as the Anthem ship decks layout – only the name of the ship is different there. This is a cutaway image in high quality and great resolution showing all there is on this unique cruise ship. Which is why the file is relatively big, so it might take you some time to load it in full size.

Anthem of the Seas Deck Plans Review
Anthem of the Seas deck plan review is about a latest generation passenger ship featuring so many activities and unique facilities never seen at sea before. The list of new Royal Caribbean Anthem ship “WOWs” and “ever firsts at sea” includes:
- the “RipCord” (located on deck 16) – the sky-diving simulator
- the “North Star” (located on deck 15) – the above ship observation capsule for 360° ocean views
- the “SeaPlex” (located on decks 15 and 16) – the bumper cars in the largest sports complex at sea
- “Two70°” (located on decks 5 through 7) – big-size LED screens and glass walls allowing live panoramic views
- the line’s new Interior cabin type called “Virtual Balcony” (decks 7 through 11).
- New technologies list also has the RFID wristbands (aka WOWbands). These are an optional choice for replacing the line’s traditional SeaPass cards. They will allow passengers do onboard purchases and also to access their cabins. Wristbands will be placed in envelopes in all passenger rooms.
Like her sisters Quantum and Ovation, the Anthem cruise ship will have 2090 staterooms in total, for accommodating 4180 passengers (4905 max capacity), 1300 crew, 4 swimming pools (1 covered with retractable roof), 10 jacuzzies, 16 elevators, 18 dining options, also the RCI’s feature Rock Climbing Wall and Flowrider.
- On the Anthem cruise ship deck layouts you will not find: Ice Rink, Bowling, Zip-Line, Water-Slide, Ropes Course, Golf Simulator, Boxing Ring, Cigar/Smoking Lounge, Bridge View Observation Area, Upper Deck View Observation Lounge (aka “Royal Viking Crown”), Royal Promenade. Instead of the traditional for RCCL ships “Royal Promenade”, Anthem will have a 2-decks high walkway (on decks 4 and 5, linked with staircases). It will pass through the center, roughly half the ship’s length.
- IMPORTANT: In our Anthem ship deck plan review, marked with “new” are all the onboard dining venues. They will replace the traditional Main Dining Rooms with a new Royal Caribbean “Rotational Dining” (replacing the old-new “Dynamic Dining” concept). The new Rotational Dining system allows guests to dine at different restaurants (complimentary venues only) each night on the Anthem cruise ship (based on a rotational dining schedule). Just like on Disney cruise ships, RCI Anthem passengers will be serviced by the same wait staff and will enjoy the same table companions each evening.
IMPORTANT: The following Anthem of the Seas deck plans are valid on Royal Caribbean cruises between 15th August 2015 and 17th April 2017 (including all months of 2016).
You can watch the following official RCI YouTube video release about the review of the Royal Caribbean “Dynamic Dining” options:
