Introducing Anchored 2017

The ship will be setting sail between June 11th and 18th 2017 and will travel to Rome, stopping to party on the way on Greek islands of Santorini and Mykonos, as well as in the South of France, before finally returning to Italy.

What to expect from Anchored 2017

Each daytime pool party and evening event will be nothing like the last. Brands hosting some of the parties on board include Ibiza legends Kaluki and world famous ANTS from Ushuaia, as well as the global house label and brand, Hot Creations. On top of this, much loved London party people Abode will be bringing the sort of up-front DJs and producers that have made them one of the most talked about names on the scene.
In terms of just some of the DJs spread over the course of the trip, expect to hear every style of house, represented by new school heroes and legendary figures alike. Hot Creations hitter Patrick Topping will headline for Abode, while ANTS will welcome Steve Lawler, Andrea Oliva, Eli & Fur on board. Last but not least, representing Kaluki will be Richy Ahmed, wAFF and Solardo.
The parties will take place on the state-of-the-art ship with tailored stages, production and sound systems. So enjoy pool parties all day long, and then prepare to get back to the top deck and be part of some of the most unrivalled parties of the summer.
The ship will host 2500 guests and boasts 1000 rooms, many with sea views and a VIP butler service, as well as 10 restaurants offering Michelin star food, a cinema, gym, theatre, spa, 24 hour casino and games room plus a whole host of cocktail and lounge bars. The Jewel of the Seas really is an adult playground with everything from rock climbing, basketball, mini-golf, football, gym facilities, whirlpools and solariums, poolside big screens, a 24 hour casino, a Broadway style theatre and much more.
