A piece of steel which will make up Royal Caribbean International’s highly anticipated new ship ‘Anthem of the Seas’ was transferred out of a building hall in the Meyer Werft ship yard Papenburg, Germany, earlier.
Royal Caribbean International’s Anthem of the Seas is being built after sister ship, Quantum of the Seas leaves the building hall later this year.
This ‘piece’ is approximately 120 metres long and 60 metres high.
Anthem of the Seas is Royal Caribbean International’s second Quantum-class ship.
Due for delivery in spring 2015 the ship, along with Quantum of the Seas, will be a dramatic leap forward for the cruise industry and introduce more game-changing “firsts at sea”.
These include a skydiving experience called RipCord by iFLY and the North Star, an engineering marvel featuring a jewel like capsule that extends 300 feet above the ocean and over the sides of the ship to deliver 360-degree views for guests.
Cutting-edge transformative venues include SeaPlex, the largest indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea with bumper cars, roller skating and more; and the cruise line’s largest and most advanced staterooms ever.
These new, larger state rooms enable innovation in design, storage and comfort including the industry’s first virtual balconies.
