Final Block of Disney Dream in Place

Disney Dream is still eight months away from its maiden voyage, so it is nowhere near complete, but a major milestone was achieved in its construction earlier this week.

A ship's hull is composed of giant blocks, which are preconstructed and then fitted together into place in the drydock like a giant jigsaw puzzle. Disney Dream is composed of 80 blocks, and the final one, this time the bow, was lifted into place in Meyer Werft's huge covered drydock at their Papenburg (Germany) facility.
