The 750-ton block, designated block 45, was brought into the dry dock in Meyer’s covered building dock several days ago. It is one of about 80 blocks (pre-built pieces) that will make up the ship. This one is part of the engine room. Today, an 800-ton crane lifted it into place in the dry dock.
The complete story appeared in the April 5 edition of Cruise News Daily.
