Spectrum of the Seas to leave Meyer Werft covered dock

Spectrum of the Seas will remain in Meyer Werft's covered building dock for only a few more days PHOTO: Meyer Werft
Spectrum of the Seas is scheduled to leave Meyer Werft's covered building dock II Monday to make room for the first section of Norwegian Encore.

The Royal Caribbean International ship will continue to be outfitted at Papenburg until mid-March, before setting sail for the North Sea. Spectrum of the Seas is RCI's first Quantum Ultra class and purpose-built for China.

Before the 169,300gt Spectrum of the Seas is able to berth at Meyer's outfitting pier, a floating engine room section currently berthed there will be removed.

Once the dock is vacated, the floating part for Norwegian Encore, due for completion this autumn, will be manoeuvred in for further construction work.

Funnel cladding and North Star to be fitted

Weather permitting, Spectrum of the Seas is going to start leaving the covered building dock at 8 p.m. February 25.

Work to be done at the outfitting pier includes, as first steps, the installation of the ship's funnel cladding as well as the North Star viewing capsule. Both installations will be completed in the first days after departure from the covered dock.
