But the Anthem of the Seas is more than its destinations; it’s about the journey. In its continuous quest for excellence, Royal Caribbean introduces more short getaways than ever, including five coastal cruises and a memorable five-night trip to Hobart. The holiday spirit soars with festive sailings over Christmas and New Year, making unforgettable memories. The ship is a treasure trove of experiences, featuring skydiving simulators, the most significant indoor activity space at sea, a Latin-themed club, an English pub, and world-class dining options, including Jamie’s Italian. Entertainment is front and centre with the ship’s rendition of the Olivier Award-winning musical “We Will Rock You”, featuring Queen’s iconic hits.

Not to be outshone, Voyager of the Seas sets sail from Brisbane for the first time in December 2025, offering 20 unique holidays, including a maiden voyage to Luganville, Vanuatu. From sunny escapes to Noumea and Mystery Island to an extraordinary 12-night adventure from Singapore to Australia, the Voyager offers a blend of relaxation and adventure. Onboard, guests can indulge in high-speed waterslides, ice skating, mini golf, and glow-in-the-dark laser tag. Entertainment options are abundant, with “Ice Odyssey” and “Broadway Rhythm & Rhyme” taking centre stage.

The allure of the 2025-2026 season includes six Wiggly Sailings, a collaboration between Royal Caribbean and the beloved Wiggly Friends. These exclusive voyages are designed to bring families together, offering live concerts, exclusive merchandise, and unforgettable character events.

Royal Caribbean’s Vice President and Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand, Gavin Smith, encapsulates the excitement, stating, “Between the excitement of Anthem of the Seas making its Australian debut, Voyager’s return Down Under, and more weekend getaways than ever before, the 2025-2026 summer season is one for the books. Every kind of holidaymaker can make memories in more ways than one.”

As the 2025-2026 bookings open on Royal Caribbean’s website, the anticipation for a summer filled with unparalleled adventure, luxury, and memories is palpable. This season is not just a collection of voyages; it’s an invitation to explore, celebrate, and create moments that will be cherished for a lifetime.
