Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas Delights Families and Food Lovers Alike


For a culinary vacation on the high seas, check out this ship.

Keeping up with an expanding cruise market, Royal Caribbean International recently introduced its newest ship, Anthem of the Seas. This Quantum-class behemoth caters to what seems like every different type of market: children, millennials, and multi-generational families. While the ship offers everything from bumper cars to Broadway-quality entertainment, along with adventure seeking activities like I-Fly, its food and beverage program is crafted to please virtually any palette – a truly exemplary offering in the cruise industry.

This ship, similar to its sister ship Quantum of the Seas, offers what the cruise line calls “Dynamic Dining” that has done away with the traditional dining room dinner guests enjoy at the same table every night. While aboard Anthem, guests have the option to tailor their dining experience to whatever they would like by dining in a plethora of the ship’s specialty restaurants. Furthermore, these restaurants also offer specific cuisines and specialty menu items that are based upon seasonal ingredient availability, provided to guests for an additional cost.

While aboard the Anthem of the Seas, I sampled a white truffle tasting menu at the Chef’s Table inside Chops Grille. The fresh white truffles flown in from Alba, Italy, were the stars of the show. Dishes included a creamy cauliflower soup withpancetta, mascarpone cheese with sage croutons, and the Wagyu New York strip loin with creamy polenta, porcini mushrooms, and rapini topped with Barolo au jus.
