Royal Caribbean International has announced that its Seattle resident Anthem of the Seas will be joining Quantum, Radiance and Serenade of the Seas in summer 2025 sailings to Alaska.
Between May and September 2025, passengers will enjoy seven-night vacations departing from Seattle, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada or Seward, Alaska.
Vacations will spotlight Alaska’s wildlife, majestic landscapes and local cultures, visiting destinations ranging from Sitka to Skagway, Haines to Juneau, Ketchikan, Hubbard Glacier, Alaska and beyond.
While on board, passengers can experience action-packed adventures such as the gravity-defying RipCord by iFly skydiving simulator, the deck-defying North Star all-glass observation capsule, the rock-climbing wall, FlowRider surf simulators and ample ways to dine, drink and be entertained.
Anthem of the Seas to Sail Roundtrip from Seattle
Adventures can choose from two different seven-night itineraries that include locales such as Sitka and the Gold Rush-era town of Skagway. Travelers can get up close to the awe-inspiring Endicott Arm fjord and Dawes Glacier, and enjoy unparalleled views while heading to the state’s mountain-framed capital city, Juneau, and Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
Thrills are taken to new heights on board with adrenaline-pumping experiences
like the RipCord by iFly skydiving simulator and the North Star glass observation capsule that can reach as high as 300 feet above the ocean.

Serenade of the Seas Sailing from Vancouver
Returning to Alaska for an encore following a standout summer in 2022, Serenade makes its way to Vancouver via a unique 16-night Panama Canal cruise. Vacationers looking to journey along Alaska’s Inside Passage and see the region’s captivating wildlife are in for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Port stops include Haines, Sitka, Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, Alaska. Between port visits, adventure seekers can enjoy front-row seats to some of the Last Frontier’s best coastal gems and glaciers including Hubbard, North America’s largest tidewater glacier; and Tracy Arm fjord, with more than 30 miles of narrow passageways surrounded by cliffs and waterfalls.
While at sea, guests can take in endless ocean views through Serenade’s three acres of expansive windows or the rock-climbing wall.
Radiance of the Seas Cruising Vancouver and Seward
Radiance is the ideal choice for vacationers seeking more immersive Alaska experiences. Alternating northbound and southbound adventures start from Seward and Vancouver, along with visits to Juneau, Sitka, Skagway, Ketchikan, Icy Strait Point and Hubbard Glacier.
Before or after their seven-night cruise, travelers may extend their adventure with a Royal Caribbean Cruise tour visiting popular landmarks like Denali National Park. On board, passengers can enjoy breathtaking views, whether poolside or even from the rock-climbing wall.
