Three Cruise Ships To Look Out For In 2015

As 2014 slowly ticks into its final couple of months and the wintry weather descends upon us, many holidaymakers will be looking towards next year and starting to plan their 2015 cruises. As well as those ships that have been available throughout this year, 2015 will bring with it a few much anticipated arrivals which are already receiving interest and praise from the cruising community.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at three cruise ships that will make their debuts next year.

Anthem of the Seas

Royal Caribbean's Anthem of the Seas

As the largest ship in the world, Oasis of the Seas, is currently receiving all the headlines after recently visiting Southampton, but Royal Caribbean are planning to launch not one but three more ships in the coming months. The cruise operator’s first next-generation, Quantum class vessel, Quantum of the Seas, is just a couple of weeks away from her eager awaited maiden voyage on Nov 2nd and 2015 will see the arrival of her sister Anthem of the Seas. On April 22nd she will make her first sailing towards France and Spain with a whole host of futuristic features on board.

Just like Quantum of the Seas, passengers will benefit from a range of exciting additions during their 2015 cruise on board Anthem. Virtual balconies will mean that those staying in an inside cabin will be able to watch an image outside, whilst guests will be able to dine at eighteen different restaurants and even try their hand at skydiving whilst at sea. The trio of Quantum class ships will be completed in late 2016 when Ovation of the Seas is completed.

Britannia

P&O's Britannia

P&O’s Britannia is set to be the largest ever ship produced for the British market and will enter service in February next year. The 141,000 ton vessel will dwarf the rest of her fleet mates and bear Union Jack livery proudly across her hull.

P&O have taken notice of the rising single cruising market by incorporating a number of cabins specifically for those travelling alone; whilst other highlights will include the largest spa found on any of the P&O ships. To further represent everything that is great about being British, her interior will feature nods to the country’s history and culture and also include a one thousand seat theatre that will offer shows of the same quality as those on the West End.

Norwegian Escape

After introducing their Breakaway class ships, Norwegian Cruise Lines are planning to ‘up the anti’ even further with the introduction of two Breakaway Plus class vessels. The first of these, Norwegian Escape, will be delivered in November 2015, giving holidaymakers yet another new option for their 2015 cruises. Both ships will eventually be the largest in Norwegian’s fleet, but Norwegian Bliss, the second of the two, is not due until 2017.

Not much has been revealed thus far, but we do know that there will be a whopping eighty two single cabins as well as fourteen suites that are specifically designed to promote relaxation, situated close to the spa and fitness facilities. Successful features from Norwegian Breakaway and Getaway, such as the boardwalk area known as ‘The waterfront’ and the atrium dubbed ‘678 Ocean Place’, will also be present once again.
