Due to adverse weather conditions in Papenburg, the float-out of Quantum of the Seas will not take place as planned on Saturday.

The new date for the Royal Caribbean International ship to leave the covered building dock II at Meyer Werft is expected to be Tuesday, at approximately 4 p.m., depending on the wind and weather.

Also, the positioning of two grand blocks of sister vessel Anthem of the Seas inside the dock will not take place as planned. One of the blocks is in the shipyard harbor.

The float-out is to be broadcast on the Meyer Werft webcam.
