Quantum of the Seas conveyance scheduled for Sunday (**updated**)

Meyer Werft
Quantum of the Seas will soon exit the Papenburg harbor
Saturday update: Citing weather conditions, Meyer Werft said Quantum of the Seas' passage would begin no earlier than Sunday evening, and a later date is possible. A decision was to be made at around noon on Sunday. Quantum of the Seas is scheduled to begin its conveyance on Sunday afternoon from Meyer Werft in Papenburg along the Ems River to the North Sea.

The approximate departure time from the yard is 2 p.m.

The ship is scheduled to complete the 32-kilometer journey early Monday, with arrival in Eemshaven, Netherlands.

Assisted by two tugs, the Royal Caribbean International ship will move backwards, a procedure that ensures greater safety.

The schedule is subject to wind, weather conditions and water levels.

After a short sailing in the Eemshaven area, Quantum later will moor for several days at Bremerhaven's Columbus Cruise Center before sea trials begin.

The conveyance can be viewed on Meyer Werft's webcam.
