Odyssey of the Seas floats out

Royal Caribbean has floated out its newest ship, Odyssey of the Seas, in a key construction milestone for the vessel. It is Royal Caribbean’s second Quantum-Ultra class vessel, following Spectrum of the Seas, and will sail in Europe from spring 2021.

Ben Bouldin, vice president, EMEA, Royal Caribbean International, commented: “We are delighted to reveal a glimpse of Odyssey of the Seas to the public. She will be the latest Royal Caribbean game-changer to join our fleet next year. When we welcome our guests back, they will be able to enjoy unforgettable activities onboard Odyssey, dig in to delicious dining from around the world, and soak up the sun at a newly designed resort-style pool deck.”

The operation at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany took more than seven hours to complete. The next stages are to complete interior work, after which the ship will be conveyed down the River Ems to complete sea trials. The new ship features bumper cars, glow-in-the-dark laser tag and the largest indoor activity at sea, SeaPlex. There is also Sky Pad, the virtual reality bungee experience, and RipCord by iFly, a skydiving simulator.
