Two Royal Caribbean ships in Australia in 2025-26

Anthem of the Seas and Voyager of the Seas will replace RCI's current Australian complement from 2025-26

ROYAL Caribbean International has announced its 2025-2026 deployment in Australia, with Anthem of the Seas set to make her Down Under debut.

Anthem, which most recently cruised in Singapore, will join Voyager of the Seas in Australia, which is returning Down Under from Asia.

The new Australian ship will cruise “shorter and bolder” getaways from Sydney, while Voyager will cruise from Brisbane, with the two to sail a line-up of 45 itineraries to New Zealand and the South Pacific.

The two ships will be based in Australia from November 2025 to April 2026, replacing Quantum of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas Down Under.

Anthem will sail 24 cruises, ranging from three to 18 nights, exploring destinations across New Zealand, the Australian coast, and the islands of the South Pacific.

Royal Caribbean has also added more short getaways than before, with five two- to four-night coastal cruises.

Voyager will sail 20 itineraries, including a new Royal Caribbean destination of Luganville, amid a series of seven- to nine-night escapes to Noumea, Port Vila, and Mystery Island.

Those seeking a longer escape can hop aboard the 12-night adventure from Singapore to Australia in December, which visits Benoa and Airlie Beach.

Rounding out the program are four-, six-, and seven-night holidays visiting Airlie Beach and Cairns, as well as six Wiggly Sailings in partnership with The Wiggles.

“Between the excitement of Anthem of the Seas making its Australian debut, Voyager’s return Down Under, and more weekend getaways than ever before, the 2025-2026 summer season is one for the books,” Vice President & Managing Director Gavin Smith said.

“Every kind of holidaymaker can make memories in more ways than one with a varied line-up, from short getaways to a longer sailing from Asia, and new experiences like the show-stopping ‘We Will Rock You’ musical production, ice-skating shows and six exclusive family adventures created by Royal Caribbean and the Wiggly Friends.”

Both Anthem and Voyager are now open for booking.
