Just Can’t Wait

Update: Friday noon ET: Due to weather conditions, the float out has now been rescheduled for Saturday afternoon (German time), 7am eastern time in the US.

Earlier this week we told you that Meyer Werft was planning to float out Anthem of the Seas and webcast it early Saturday morning. Not now. Because of predicted windy weather on Saturday, the yard has decided to move up the operation to Friday afternoon (in Germany) at 3:00pm. That’s 9:00am Friday morning (February 20) eastern time in the US.

The photo below shows Anthem of the Seas in Meyer's covered building dock 2 today, awaiting floating up. Note the tugboat to the right of the photo. It has been lifted around the ship and placed in the dry dock so tomorrow it will be positioned at the ship's bow to assist during the float out.

Details appeared in the February 19 edition of Cruise News Daily.
