New Royal Caribbean vessel receives her podded propulsion units
This week at Meyer Werft, the shipyard building the Quantum-Ultra class vessel, Royal Caribbean International's latest Odyssey of the Seas got its podded propulsion units.
As it reaches its completion and floating out date, the German shipyard installed the enormous propulsion units to the aft of the ship.
The 4,200-passenger Royal Caribbean ship, delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, is scheduled to enter service this coming spring. The ship is expected to make its debut season in Europe, taking it home to Civitavecchia and sailing in the Mediterranean.
Her North American market debut comes next winter on six- and eight-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises sailing from Port Everglades.
