Hold that thought*… all Anthem cruises have been pulled from sale. Lots of rumours flying around; but yes, they test on Jewel before you get off so you have a Fit to Fly so no reason why they wouldn’t do it on Anthem.

 

*I think your relationship with this ship is jinxed! 

One of our favorite ships, not jinxed!  I also just noticed that all Anthem September and October cruises have been pulled.  Yuck.  Was so looking forward to our trips.

Hopefully for capacity control!  We are in a Grand Loft in October and most of those rooms were still available the other day.

Both our cruises are still listed in our upcoming cruises  and in my app.  Waiting.

Yep.  If it is cancelled, at least my air is protected since I used Choice Air.  Havent did hotel rooms or excursions yet.  If it is cancelled, I hope they let us lift and shift it.

We’re also on the island and struggling to find somewhere to take the PCR test. Did you manage to get something sorted?

 

Not yet.

Waiting to see where the nearest Eurofins is.

I did find this as a possible alternative:

Looking at switching our harmony 29th aug cruise to anthem 29th aug cruise. Although may not get the weather, with the way international travel is in the uk. I think this is the way forward. Cant cruise next year due to work so the FCC wont work.

Thanks for your reply, in the end we’ve booked eurofins, Solent hotel Fareham, which is the nearest. Just accepted 1/2 day off work and car ferry cost. Looked at the island clinic but was hesitant in case it wasn’t accepted. The company never got back to me to confirm if they met RCI required standard for PCR test. Such a shame Boots on the island aren’t offering.

Does anyone know why they have pulled September cruises from UK?

I believe it's an internet glitch. Still available on other sites

There was talk of Harmony moving to Southampton, but who knows nowadays.

Anthem does appear on other sites but when you go to book it doesn't let you. With Anthem now appearing on UK cruise port schedules it's looking likely that the Europe season has been pulled and will continue with UK only ports. Hope I'm wrong because I was just about to book yesterday but it's not looking good

It’s looking more and more likely that Anthem will continue with British Isles cruises for the rest of this season. The Royal app has been updated showing the following itineraries:

 

19th September: 7 night British Isles (Southampton - Cruising - Liverpool - Glasgow - Belfast - Cruising - Cruising - Southampton)

 

26th September: 6 night British Isles (Southampton - Cruising - Belfast - Liverpool - Liverpool - Cruising - Southampton)

 

15th October: 5 night British Isles (Southampton - Cruising - Liverpool - Belfast - Cruising - Southampton)

This is what I heard yesterday.  If they are canceling my October cruises I wish they would tell me.  Royal's US website doesn't show any cruises from Southampton for September or October 2021, unless the cruises you are seeing are for UK residents,  which contradicts from the UK said when they opened up for US travelers.

We are on board the 5th Sept and the app is still showing the first port to be Vigo but looking online I see that the Anthem is due in Kirkwall on the 8th. Just wish Royal would tell us what is happening.
