Meyer Werft is planning to float out Genting Dream from their giant indoor building dock on Saturday (August 20).
This will be the second ship they are completing this year.
The process is scheduled to begin at 8:00am, local time in Germany (2:00am Eastern time in the US).
Once the ship is docked at the finishing dock on Saturday afternoon, the stack will be attached. On Sunday, there will be thruster tests and lifeboat launching. During the following weeks, the ship's interior will be completed. A mid-September river conveyance is planned. The exact date will be chosen late.
The 151,300-gross ton ship will be the first ship in the Dream Cruises fleet, and it will be based in China.
Weather could, of course, alter Saturday's schedule. Meyer will webcast the event on their website at www.meyerwerft.de
