Royal Caribbean said the Anthem of the Seas, a Quantum-class ship due to enter service in April 2015, will sail from England in the summer and South Florida in the winter.

The ship will be based in Southampton for Mediterranean cruises. In the winter months, the ship will sail from Fort Lauderdale.

The 4,108-passenger Anthem of the Seas is under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

The first Quantum-class ship, the Quantum of the Seas, is scheduled to enter service in fall 2014, sailing Florida-Caribbean cruises year-round from Cape Liberty in Bayonne, N.J.
