Anthem of the Seas Sailing Delayed Until Tomorrow

Royal Caribbean is turning away passengers for today’s sailing on the Anthem of the Seas following the Coronoavirus scare this morning. Guests are being told to come back tomorrow.

 

In a press release, the cruse line assured passengers that none of the 4 passengers tested positive for conavirus and that the Anthem of the Seas will depart tomorrow.

“We appreciate the CDC’s abundance of caution and their partnership. We understand CDC intends to test samples from four guests for coronavirus. None of the four guests showed any clinical signs or symptoms of coronavirus while they were onboard our ship. One had tested positive onboard for Influenza A. Our records indicate the guests had not been in China since January 26 — 14 days ago.

All other guests have been permitted to disembark as usual. We have also been cleared by authorities to depart on our next cruise as usual. However, to reassure concerned guests, we will delay our departure until tomorrow, when we expect to receive conclusive test results from CDC.”

Anthem of the Seas Docked in New Jersey This Morning for Coronavirus Screening

Four Royal Caribbean cruise passengers have been taken to the hospital in New Jersey  for observation and 23 more are being screened for the Coronavirus. While none of these Chinese nationals aboard the Anthem of the Seas are from Wuhan, the outbreak’s epicenter, nor have traveled there since the outbreak was first identified, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line is not taking any chances.

In a statement from Royal Caribbean, spokesperson Melissa Charbonneau said the company is participating in “elevated levels of guest screening to check the spread of coronavirus.”

“We are closely monitoring developments regarding coronavirus and have rigorous medical protocols in place onboard our ships. We continue to work in close consultation with the CDC, the WHO, and local health authorities to align with their guidance and ensure the health and wellbeing of our guests and crew,” Charbonneau continued.

Health officials and the CDC took the 23 other passangers, who all happen to be Chinese nationals, off the ship this morning to be taken to the airport and sent back to China. This was just a precautionary measure as there is no indication any of the passengers have the coronavirus.

Augmented Reality Comes to Anthem of the Seas

Royal Caribbean has launched a new free to play augmented reality game on the Anthem of the Seas called Expedition Two70. Once aboard the ship you will access the interactive game via the Royal Caribbean App and head to the Two70 venue to begin the game.

“Journey to Two70 and test your adventuring skills in four fully immersive augmented reality games. Locate artifacts placed around the room and scan them with the Royal Caribbean International app to begin each challenge. Raise temples, blast ruins and more on your quest to recover ancient masks. Finish all four games to win.” – Royal Caribbean

This AR experience made its debut on the Spectrum of the Seas, which has been sailing out of Shanghai since June, 2019. Royal Caribbean has since announced that Anthem of the Seas will now have this technology as well.

Royal Caribbean has been working with Firstborn, a creative innovation agency out of New York, to create the first ever augmented reality experience designed specifically for a moving ship. This groundbreaking technology transforms event space of the Quantum class ships into a massive experience “designed to delight guests and expand Royal Caribbean’s adventurous brand into new, uncharted territories.” In one challenge, players fire arrows out across the balcony at an archipelago of floating islands. In another, they walk 360º around the stage as they navigate a giant maze carved into a four-story temple. With four fully-immersive games, Firstborn designed a cohesive universe with an authentic and ownable connection to the Royal Caribbean brand to create a guest experience on a scale never before seen at sea.

Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information.

We will be keeping a close eye on further digital entertainment offerings from Royal Caribbean as this looks to be an experience for the entire family!
