Construction Continues on Quantum of the Seas at Meyer Werft

Construction is continuing on Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas at Meyer Werft's Papenburg, Germany facility as shown in this construction photo taken late last week. The ship is being constructed inside one of the company's giant covered building docks, which has allowed construction to continue through the harsh winter of northern Germany. Meyer's order book is so full, the yard is working at capacity into 2017. The building large enough that it allows multiple vessels to be inside at once, and they are only floated out for approximately the last month before they leave the yard on sea trials.
