For some, a cruise holiday hasn’t truly begun until they’re lying back on a sun lounger with a cocktail in hand. Alternatively, a tangy aperitif can be the perfect start to an elegant evening of classy entertainment. If you’re ready to indulge in a classic or would like to try something a little more adventurous, keep reading to find out our recommendations onboard Anthem of the Seas!
The Iglu Cruise team have been lucky enough to experience a number of different ships, becoming experts in the venues, dining, entertainment and, of course, the drinks! Anthem of the Seas is bursting with innovative features, including an array of delectable cocktails. From the classic favourites to brand new inventions, the team discovered the top 8 cocktails onboard.
1. Ultimate Bloody Mary
Royal Caribbean have amplified the classic favourite. This Bloody Mary uses premium ingredients to infuse the cocktail with just the right amount of spices, perfect for a pick me up or to kick the night off.
2. Kraken Colada
This fun take on a classic pina colada includes Kraken Dark Rum floated on top of a flavourful mix, a must for rum-fanatics.
3. Frozen Mojito
This refreshing cocktail goes perfectly with a hot summer’s day spent by the pool. Enjoy mint, rum, lime and a touch of sweet sugarcane over slushy, pureed ice, quenching your taste buds and bringing you to the heart of the Caribbean.
4. Sparkling Sombrero
Packed with tons of flavour, a Sparkling Sombrero is a must for fans of tequila. Featuring a fusion of ginger ale, 1800 Tequila and passionfruit, this cocktail will be the perfect kick off for a fantastic night out.
5. Crown Royal Old Fashioned
This classic favourite is made with Crown Royal whiskey, a top-selling whiskey from Canada. Infused with fresh, tangy orange and sweet maraschino cherry, this is a perfect blend to enjoy a relaxing evening with.
6. Strawberry or Mango Daiquiri
An excellent choice for those looking for something less intense, you’ll find a range of daiquiri flavours onboard Anthem of the Seas. Our favourites were the fresh and fruity strawberry daiquiri and mango daiquiri, both tasting more like a smoothie with a tangy kick. Bar staff are also happy to whip up virgin daiquiris.
7. Ultimate Mai Tai
Packing a real fruity punch, the Ultimate Mai Tai goes great with a night of lively music and dancing. Infused with Myer’s Dark Rum, let the zing of orange and pineapple carry you away to the Caribbean.
8. Create Your Own Cocktail
Perhaps the most exciting of all, indulge in a bespoke cocktail rustled up by two robotic bartenders at the Bionic Bar. You’ll only find this futuristic feature on Quantum Class and above, so don’t miss out on this experience when onboard. Order from a selection of mixers and spirits on an iPad and watch as the bionic bartenders get to work on your very own creation.
