Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Anthem of the Seas launches in April
Royal Caribbean International’s newest ship, Anthem of the Seas, which will be sailing from Southampton, is set to wow the cruising public with a show-stopping line-up of entertainment to push the boundaries of the imagination, when it launches in April 2015.
From stage shows to multi-dimensional productions combining cutting-edge technology with highly trained live performers, stunning visuals and special effects, Anthem of the Seas delivers a programme of productions and performances to leave audiences spellbound.
Seating 1,300 guests, the Royal Theater is home to two main shows:
- We Will Rock You – the smash hit musical featuring the greatest hits of legendary rock group Queen and written by Ben Elton, is a hilarious, award-winning phenomenon. Based around 24 of the group’s greatest hits, the record-breaking show tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and does the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown.
- The Gift – an original Royal Caribbean production created exclusively for Anthem of the Seas, The Gift is a musical journey of fantasy and illusion that begins one stormy night with the arrival of a “Magical Gift”. A beautiful production that is sure to delight, inspire and touch the hearts of all who come to see it.
Two70, which is named for its magnificent 270-degree panoramic sea views provided by vast, floor-to-ceiling glass walls spanning almost three decks high at the stern of the ship, is a multi-level venue that seamlessly fuses entertainment and technology to create a transformative journey for guests from morning to night.
With the integration of Vistarama and RoboScreens with highly trained live performers, music and special effects, Two70 provides an endless landscape for Royal Caribbean to create stunningly visual, original productions that can only be seen on Anthem of the Seas. Main shows include:
- Spectra’s Cabaret – created by Moment Factory exclusively for Two70 on Anthem of the Seas, this production features the Maestro and his Agents of Rhythm as they invite you to an electric multi-dimensional cabaret transporting guests to invisible realms. Each night, the portal opens for a limited period of time and the audience is immersed in a multi-media show brimming with kaleidoscopic sounds, effervescent colors and dazzling movement. Spectra’s Cabaret blends live performance and experiential cinema along with music from popular culture. It creates a world seen through the lens of music and technology, all the while exploring the deepest recesses of the heart.
