Despite recommencement of construction work at German Shipyard, Meyer Werft, Royal Caribbean have confirmed the delay in launching Odyssey of the Seas by at least 6 months. Odyssey, the newest and largest Royal Caribbean Ship was due to debut in Fort Lauderdale in November 2020, but all sailings from November 2020 – April 2021 have now been cancelled and Odyssey will now launch in late April 2021 and begin sailing from Rome.
Despite the inevitable delay in construction due to Covid-19 and an unexpected fire at the shipyard, Odyssey is making huge progress in her construction. Odyssey has now moved from dry dock construction to a flooded construction area, this means her hull is now in the water rather than her being completely on dry land.
Construction of a ship is a little like a car and done in an assembly line fashion. This movement is the next stage on the assembly line for Odyssey and one step closer to the end of the construction hall.
Odyssey will be the first of the Quantum Ultra Class Ships. She will have all the amazing features of Quantum class ships plus more entertainment than you can imagine. You’ll have bumper cars, Ifly Sky Diving, Lazer Tag, The North Star and even Skypad Trampoline Park.
If that’s not enough you’ll have incredible evening entertainment every night; with live music in the Music Hall, Awe inspiring technological spectaculars in Two Sixty or show stopping Broadway style shows in the Theatre.
So whilst Odyssey is delayed by the looks of the videos and images Royal Caribbean have released it seems Odyssey will be well worth waiting for.
