New construction photos have been released of Odyssey of the Seas which has reached a milestone at Meyer Werft.
Odyssey of the Seas Construction Milestone
Even though the ship is delayed by six months due to the global health crisis and the suspension of cruise operations work still continues on the second Quantum Ultra-class vessel.
Odyssey of the Seas is currently under construction at the Myer Wert shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. In a social media post, the shipyard has said the cruise ship has now moved around 150 and is now floating on water. The ship is next to the main gate entrance which is where she’ll emerge from once ready.
Work is still taking place on some exterior areas and a major focus is also focused on the interior spaces. Things like cabling and electrics can be complex on such huge cruise ships and all the interior spaces will begin to take shape too.

Odyssey of the Seas was originally scheduled to be completed in November 2020 but due to the current situation impacting the industry, the ship now won’t be delivered to Royal Caribbean until April 2021. Cruises will launch from April 17, 2021, and she will sail the inaugural cruises in Europe. The ship will still reposition to offer Caribbean cruises from Fort Lauderdale in November 2021 as planned.
