Anthem of the Seas: Lesson Learned

After Anthem of the Seas’ rough ride through a storm less than a month ago, the line said they had more resources and new procedures in place to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Apparently that new level of cautiousness is already coming into play because Royal Caribbean is returning Anthem of the Seas from its current cruise to keep it well away from a storm it would have encountered on its return should it have kept to schedule.

The line said on Saturday, Anthem would be skipping its last two ports of Barbados and St. Kitts and heading home to New Jersey right away in order to stay what is now considered a safe distance away from the storm which is predicted to create hazardous seas and has now produced gale warnings.

Details appeared in the February 29 edition of Cruise News Daily.
