RCI’s Anthem of the Seas is Officially Named in Southampton

Royal Caribbean International has marked the launch of Anthem of the Seas with a grand naming ceremony in Southampton led by 27-year-old Scottish travel agent Emma Wilby as Godmother of the ship. Anthem_of_the_Seas_launch   Emma, a budding singer and member of the Military Wives Choir in Kinloss, Scotland, took centre stage during the ceremony, together with Welsh choir and Britain’s Got Talent finalists, Only Boys Aloud, to perform to an audience of more than 1,300 guests, followed by a traditional bottle break officially naming the ship.

The naming ceremony took place in Anthem of the Seas’ Royal Theatre and was broadcast live throughout the ship. Stuart Leven, Managing Director, UK & Ireland, Royal Caribbean International, said: “Royal Caribbean really likes to do things differently; from the way we build our ships to the way we found our Godmother. Just look at Anthem of the Seas – there’s something for everyone, indoors and outdoors, and we are confident this ship will help us to attract a whole new audience to cruising.”
