Who said cruising is for oldies? Let's get ANCHORED!
So, you’re thinking of booking your getaway this Summer but can’t decide where to go? Why pick only one destination? This year with Anchored you can visit Barcelona, Cannes, Ibiza AND Palma with their 7 day ALL INCLUSIVE cruise.
Prices start from just £899 which includes accommodation, entertainment, food and drinks! Some of the biggest names will be headlining incredible sets, including some of the artists who were at the U&I Christmas Carnival back in December. It’s definitely worth checking them out here.
We were part of the 'festival at sea' last year and we can safely say it was a once in a lifetime experience.
The Champagne Spray Pool Party was our personal favourite (and you can see why from the video above!), but there were so many themed nights, day parties, beach parties and also the opportunity to relax and unwind. Onboard Royal Caribbean’s majestic ship, Vision of the Seas, was a rock climbing wall, miniature golf, a casino, numerous pools, spa, a full gym, theatre and many other activities to keep everyone entertained.
Dining is spectacular onboard – there are numerous restaurants to choose from, and also a buffet which has food around the clock. Most nights we opted to eat in the main dining room for a more luxurious experience. In London, we don’t go out for gourmet meals every night, so why not?! The menu changed every evening with delicious steaks, risottos, pasta dishes and grilled meats, but also a selection of gluten free, vegetarian and vegan choices every day! They really do cater for all.
Room service is also available for those who don’t want to leave the cabin. Imagine having Eggs Benedict come right to your door, along with a Mimosa? Yes please! There's a buffet style restaurant on the Lido deck where you can always find some food (pretty much 24/7!) , which is perfect for an after-party munch, post gym refuel, or if you're just feeling a bit peckish between meals.
Last year we visited Rome, Santorini, Mykonos, and Cannes, and what a fabulous itinerary it was. This year they’re starting off the party in Barcelona, then heading to Cannes before sailing to Ibiza, where there will be a HUGE island party. Next, onto Palma, no doubt another incredible night there, with the celebrations continuing onboard! But it’s not all about partying… last year, we opted to see some cultural aspects of the cities we visited when the ship docked. We hired a car and drove around the island, and went to some of the quieter beaches to relax. There were also many architectural monuments to gawk at, food to sample, interesting locals to meet, street markets and shops to name a few other things to do!
As we mentioned, we started off in Rome, then sailed to a few different Greek Islands; Santorini and Mykonos. These islands were so tranquil and there's plenty to do at each destination.There were some spectacular views at the top of the hill in Santorini (pictured below). Just imagine how incredible it is to wake up in a new destination each day!! Cannes was also beautiful and a luxurious destination which is on the 2018 itinerary. Email us to find out exactly what to do there if you need some tips!
Sailing at sea is one of the most peaceful expereinces, and aboard the Vision of the Seas you can expect 5 star luxury treatment from the moment you leave the shore. The ship itself combines a chic interior with spellbinding panoramic views. Expect elegant décor, intuitive spaces and balcony areas that are perfect for enjoying breakfast, drinks or dinner al fresco. Luxury can be found at every corner and with a staff to customer ratio of 2:1, guests are provided with a 5-star service that makes each individual feel welcomed. Not to mention some of the most beautiful sunsets over the Mediterranean Sea!
Expect style, service and limitless entertainment. Spend your days exploring the most idyllic destinations in the Mediterranean and your evenings star-gazing, as you party long after the sun has set. From Champagne Sprays to Casino Royale themed nights and live performances, the entertainment combines all of the best elements that Europe has to offer, and Anchored has the VIP treatment to accompany it.
