Exploring Anthem of the Seas’ Fantastic Dining Options


Much of the talk about the hotly anticipated Royal Caribbean liner Anthem of the Seas has been about the exciting iFly skydiving simulator and the North Star Observation pod, but at Cruise1st, we’re just as excited about the incredible array of dining options that are going to be available. Here are just a few of the complimentary and additional fee dining options that you will be able to enjoy next year when the Anthem of the Seas first sets sail.

Jamie’s Italian

Italian Cuisine, Additional Fee

The Quantum Class of Royal Caribbean ships will be the first to take Jamie Oliver’s incredibly popular Italian restaurant food franchise to the seas. Jamie’s Italian has built up a reputation of putting a unique twist on authentic Italian recipes and pairing these with an exceptional wine list. With meat, fish, pizza and pasta in abundance, Jamie’s Italian is sure to be a huge hit with the whole family.
