Meyer Begins Assembly of Ovation of the Seas

Assembly of Ovation of the Seas began today in the covered building dock at Meyer Werft in Papenburg (Germany). Royal Caribbean President and COO Adam Goldstein placed the lucky penny in the dock before the first block of the ship, weighing 740 tons, was lowered onto it. The 168,600-ton ship, the third in the Quantum-class series, will be delivered in the spring of 2016.

The first of 74 blocks is lowered into place.

placed below the keel for good luck.
