Ship leaves building dock II and floating unit enters the dock
The Spectrum of the Seas (see also CruiseMapper) will probably be leaving the covered building dock II at the MEYER WERFT on 25 February 2019. The ship has a rating of 169,300 GT and measures 347.75 m in length and 41.4 m in width, with ca-pacity for 4,188 passengers.
The ship built for the American Royal Caribbean International shipping company will start to leave the dock at around 8 p.m. Once the Spectrum of the Seas has left the dock, it will berth at the shipyard's out-fitting pier to be fitted with its funnel cladding. Weather permitting, the North Star (glazed viewing capsule) will also be installed on the ship. The ship will then remain in the shipyard port for further out-fitting work and on-board trials until its passage through the river Ems up to the North Sea, which will probably take place mid March.
Possible delays due to the weather
For the Spectrum of the Seas to be able to berth at the out-fitting pier, the floating section (engine room unit) of the Norwegian Encore that is currently moored here will have to be moved to another berth in the shipyard port. Once the Spectrum of the Seas has left the dock, the floating part for the Norwegian Encore (see also CruiseMapper), which is due for completion in autumn 2019, will be manoeuvred back into the free covered building dock II for further construction work.
