Let’s forget about the pause in cruise operations for just a minute and enjoy these new photos of Royal Caribbean’s new Odyssey of the Seas cruise ship. The vessel is currently under construction at the popular Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, and is the second Quantum Ultra class ship in the fleet.
You can take a look at the two photos below showing how odyssey of the Seas currently looks while in the construction hall. The vessel is now whole and all the blocks are already together. A lot of work is taking place on the interior with a limited number of workers following social distancing.
The ship will be identical to Spectrum of the Seas which is the first in the Quantum Ultra class. Once completed Odyssey of the Seas will be 169,000 gross tons, 1,138 feet long and 135 feet wide. She will have a guest capacity of 4,198 at double occupancy along with 1,550 crew members.
Royal Caribbean has already mentioned that new cruise ship deliveries for 2020 and 2021 are delayed but no specific details about when Odyssey of the Seas will enter service. The ship was originally scheduled to debut out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida in November 2020 offering 8-night and 6-night Caribbean itineraries.
