RCI’s Anthem of the Seas to debut Down Under in 2025-26

Gavin Smith said RCI’s 2025-26 Australian summer cruise season is ‘one for the books'
Royal Caribbean International’s Anthem of the Seas will make her debut in Australia and New Zealand in the 2025-26 cruise season, joined by Voyager of the Seas.

Anthem of the Seas will be based in Sydney, while Voyager of the Seas will be based in Brisbane for the first time.

The two ships will operate cruises around Australia and to the South Pacific and New Zealand between November 2025 and April 2026.

Anthem will offer two- to four-night getaways, as well as longer sailings to New Zealand and the South Pacific.

New port of call

Voyager will chalk up a new port of call — Luganville in Vanuatu — when she operates seven-to-nine-night voyages to Noumea, Port Vila (Luganville) and Mystery Island in Vanuatu.

‘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 2025-26 summer season is one for the books,’ VP and MD Australasia Gavin Smith said.
