Neptun Werft laid the keel for Spectrum of the Seas today in Wärnemünde, Germany. Royal Caribbean International's fourth in the Quantum series is also the first in a new Quantum Ultra design.

The 620-ton keel block measuring 59 feet/18 meters by 121 feet/37 meters was lifted into Neptun's building dock with an 800-ton crane.

Neptun Werft is now specializing in building floating engine room units for ocean-going ships being constructed at sister yard Meyer Werft in Papenburg and at Meyer Turku.

On hand for the event were Kevin Douglas and Sebastian Brunel of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.; Thomas Weigend, Carsten Pengel and Stephan Schnees of Meyer Werft; Mathias Kopitzki and Raimon Strunk of Neptun Werft and Thomas Murken of DNV GL.
