Photos: “Anthem Of The Seas” In Dockyard

May 2, 2016

Bermuda welcomed a notable cruise ship visit today [May 2] as the 1,141-foot Quantum Class “Anthem of the Seas” arrived, marking the largest ever cruise ship Bermuda has hosted.

A Transport Ministry spokesperson previously said, “Accommodating the mega ship for a Dockyard berth – the vessel is 136 feet wide and 1,141 feet long with a draft of 28 feet – necessitated the arrival of specialized equipment for the recent dredging and widening of the North Channel between St. George’s and Dockyard.

.

“With the Inaugural visit to the island, the ship will be greeted by a senior Government delegation including the Acting Premier and Cabinet Ministers. City and town Mayors will also be a part of the welcome delegation”

The Anthem of the Seas is scheduled to make 21 calls during the 2016 cruise ship season, and the Royal Caribbean cruise line has already announced that the ship will return to Bermuda in 2017.

    Nice to see, but I don’t think Bermuda can handle it.. transportation ie.. Nice to see tourist here but don’t want them leaving with a bad taste about Bermuda..

    • Lois Frederick says:

      As long as Anthem and Breakaway aren’t in on the same day I think we can learn to cope with the volume.

    • tony saccomanno says:

      if you had more then scooters to get around i think more tourist would in hotels for a longer time enjoying the island and spending a lot more then when they visit by ship, and yes i did both
