Spectrum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s newest ship designed specifically for the Chinese market, has left Meyer Werft’s covered building dock II.

The ship has a rating of 169,300 GT and measures 347.75 m in length and 41.4 m in width, with ca-pacity for 4,188 passengers.

Spectrum of the Seas will berth at the shipyard's out-fitting pier to be fitted with its funnel cladding. Weather permitting, the North Star (glazed viewing capsule) will also be installed on the ship.

The ship will then remain in the shipyard port for further out-fitting work and on-board trials until its passage through the river Ems up to the North Sea, which will probably take place mid March.

Now the floating part for the Norwegian Encore, which is due for completion in autumn 2019, will be maneuvered back into the free covered building dock II for further construction work.
