Keel-laying ceremony held for Odyssey of the Seas

The keel of Royal Caribbean’s latest cruise ship, the 169,000gt Odyssey of the Seas, has now been laid at a ceremony held in the group’s Neptun Werft shipyard.

The ship will be one of the five largest cruise ships in the world and will join sister vessels Quantum of the Seas (2014), Anthem of the Seas (2015) and Ovation of the Seas (2016) when it is delivered by Meyer Werft in Papenburg in autumn 2020.
The first steel parts of the Odyssey of the Seas have already been manufactured at Meyer Werft’s Laser Centre and the ship’s keel-laying and construction has begun only a few weeks after the shipyard group delivered Spectrum of the Seas.
