Pick a Cabin: Anthem of the Seas Deck Plan Decoderby Kayla Becker | January 23, 2016
Choosing a cabin on Anthem of the Seas is no easy feat. This new Quantum-class ship contains 2,090 cabins (1,571 with balconies) in almost 20 categories ranging from interior staterooms to luxe two-story apartments.
Not sure which one's for you? To help, we've decoded the deck plans. Read on for our breakdown of what’s included in each cabin category from lowest to highest price.
Interior Stateroom With Virtual Balcony — Starting at $695 per person per week, this small, 166-square-foot room includes two twin beds that convert to a king, a sitting area with a sofa, and a full bathroom. All 375 interior staterooms on this ship have a "virtual balcony" — a floor-to-ceiling screen displaying a live feed of what’s happening outside. It's as convincing as a screen can be, so if it’s sunny, rainy, or nighttime, that’s what you’ll see. Strange, but true.
Large Interior Stateroom With Virtual Balcony — Pay just a little more ($719 per person), and get a slightly larger interior room — 178 square feet — with the same live-feed screen.
Interior Connected Stateroom With Virtual Balcony — This version of the Large Interior Stateroom, starting at $786 per person, is for groups or families that want to share space without the hassle of booking separate rooms.
Ocean View Stateroom — Pay $50 more per person than a Virtual Balcony Stateroom and get a 182-square-foot cabin with a non-opening window. This room features twin beds that convert to a king, plus a sitting area with a sofa.
Large Ocean View Stateroom — This more spacious version of the Ocean View Stateroom measures 214 square feet and starts at $833 per person.
Superior Ocean View Stateroom — Paying $882 per person bumps you one step up to this 302-square-foot cabin with an alcove that includes a panoramic window and lounge chair.
Superior Ocean View Stateroom With Balcony — At $941 per person per week, this is the most popular accommodation choice on this ship: a 198-square-foot room with a 55- to 65-square-foot balcony. It also features twin beds that convert to a king, plus a sitting area.
Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom With Balcony — For not quite $50 more per person than No. 7, upgrade to this 177-square-foot cabin with a larger 82-square-foot balcony.
Ocean View Connected Stateroom With Balcony — A good option for families, this cabin features three separate sleeping areas and a balcony and starts at $990 per person.
Spa Junior Suite With Balcony — At 267 square feet, this roomy cabin sleeps two and has an 81-square-foot balcony. But the real draw is the bathroom: The spa-inspired split bath showcases a soaking tub and a separate shower. There's even a separate half bath. Rates start at $1,428 per person.
Junior Suite With Balcony — The next level up is this 276-square-foot cabin, which features a 161-square-foot corner balcony that feels very private. Starting at $1,640 per person, these rooms can also connect to adjacent Interior Staterooms or Ocean View Balcony Staterooms.
Family Junior Suite With Balcony — At $1,640 per person, this 301-square-foot cabin can sleep four to five people and comes with a full bath plus a separate half bath, as well as an 81-square-foot balcony.
Grand Suite With Balcony — Pay $2,295 per person to get this 351-square-foot cabin that includes a living room with convertible sofa, an entertainment center, and a desk. Plus, this suite's balcony measures 109 square feet and includes its own dining area.
Royal Family Suite With Balcony — This family suite sleeps up to eight people, with two bedrooms, a convertible sofa, and two full bathrooms. Its balcony varies from 166 to 263 square feet. Rates start at $2,851 per person.
Owner’s Suite With Balcony — This 541-square-foot cabin includes plenty of luxuries, such as a marble entry, large closets, a living area with a dining table and a convertible sofa, plus a spacious balcony that measures up to 263 square feet. This stateroom sleeps up to four people and starts at $3,135 per person.
Sky Loft Suite With Balcony — Starting at $3,435 per person, this two-deck-high, 740-square-foot stateroom provides sweeping views, a balcony, two full bathrooms, and an open living and dining area with a convertible sofa.
Grand Loft Suite With Balcony — For around $300 more per person than the Sky Loft Suite, upgrade to this two-deck-high, 696-square-foot stateroom with similar views. The larger Grand Loft Suite features a 236-square-foot balcony and an open living and dining room with a convertible sofa, plus two full bathrooms.
Royal Loft Suite With Balcony — Spending $10,000 to $16,000 per person per week (maximum six people) gets you exactly 1,640 square feet. And this two-story apartment is packed with amenities: comprehensive views, a whirlpool tub, a bar, dining room, media room, a spacious master bedroom (and master bath with soaking tub, bidets, and a dressing room). The balcony alone is a jaw-dropper — at 415 square feet, it’s triple the size of most staterooms on Anthem of the Seas.
