Photos & Video: “Anthem Of The Seas” Arrives

May 2, 2016

[Updated] In what marks the largest ever cruise ship to visit the island, the Royal Caribbean Quantum Class Anthem of the Seas arrived in Bermuda this morning [May 2] carrying nearly 4500 cruise visitors.

The Royal Caribbean ship – just a year after its maiden voyage – is due to dock at Heritage Wharf at the Royal Naval Dockyard later this morning.

Update: We have live video showing the ship in Dockyard on both our Periscope and Facebook pages.

The Anthem of the Seas is pictured below off the east end just before 7.00am this morning

      • serengeti says:

        That’s the dock that had to be rebuilt properly a year later, right?

      • Build a Better Bermuda says:

        Just think how much use that new dock would have been for this if we hadn’t cleaned up the mess of the first job.

      they had no choice….

    • Anbu says:

      And it had to be done twice on your dollar. No problems though right? Hypocricy on this island is hilarious.

    • Lois Frederick says:

      Just a shame about the cost.

    • David says:

      I suppose being able to see past the end of one’s nose counts as “vision” on this island these days. Fair enough I suppose :)

    • Build a Better Bermuda says:

      It was one of only a few choices left to us… shame they didn’t have the vision to not cut corners on the first dock works and get it right the first time

  3. U’lot keep talking about the dock, what about all them passenger that will get off them cruise-ships and discover there isn’t adequate transportation available :-( By the way, I’m speaking in reference to this huge Anthem of The Seas…What’ll happen when other ship/s arrive?
