On Tuesday (June 16) the final block was placed on the ship, completing the construction of the hull and superstructure. Then on Thursday (June 18), the dry dock began flooding to float the ship up for its float out over the weekend. Once floated out, it will be moved to a finishing dock where it will remain while the interior is completed.
