Meyer Werft expects to float out Dream Cruises' first newbuild, the 151,300gt Genting Dream, from its covered building dock on Saturday.

In recent weeks the Papenburg shipyard has been busy conducting extensive tests, interior work and machinery trials. After the float-out and more tests to be carried out in the harbor, the ship will be berthed alongside the yard's outfitting pier.

Genting Dream's conveyance along the Ems River to the North Sea is scheduled for mid-September.

The ship's overall length is 335 meters and its beam is 39.7 meters

Weather permitting, the float-out will commence around 8 a.m. local time. The operation will be broadcast on the yard's webcam.
