The Anthem of the Seas is a rather impressive structure when you think about it. Consider the scale. At 348 metres, she's the equivalent of nearly four football pitches. And at 41.4 metres wide she could easily fit three double decker buses end to end on board with room to spare. Plus, have you seen that giant cherry picker like orb sticking out from the top? Yes, you can go for a ride in that. 

On March 23 2015, the Royal Carribean cruise vessel entered Hamburg port ready for docking at the Blohm + Voss shipyard. Here are 12 shots of her arrival as captured by videographer HD1080i (for the full video head to the website, www.hd1080i.de).


AotS is one of the biggest and most technologically advanced cruise ships in the world. 

Weighing 168,000 gross tonnes, it has accommodation for a total of 4,180 guests and has 2,050 staterooms. So many people!

The North Star is rather special. It's an observation capsule that takes you 300 feet in the air and provides 360-degree views day and night. (Not for those scared of heights!) 

This is the third Quantum class vessel from Royal Carribean. Quantum of the Seas made her debuted in Autumn of 2014 and is already sailing the world, while the Ovation of the Seas is expected in 2016. 

The Anthem of the Seas is, along with the Quantum of the Seas, the third biggest cruise ship in the world and the biggest ever built in Germany.

Construction began back in 2013 at the Meyer Werft shipyard. Look how far its come!

There are over 18 restaurants on board, including Asian, Italian, buffet, pub and steakhouse options, and even more impressive there's a Bionic Bar, where robot arms serve you drinks in futuristic fashion.

AotS will begin its season in Southampton this year. 

Once the Southampton season ends the vessel will head to Cape Liberty, New Jersey to offer cruises to the Bahamas and Caribbean.
