Spectrum of the Seas Is Coming Together One Block At A Time (VIDEO)

Royal Caribbean’s Spectrum of the Seas hits a milestone today in its unique construction process. Spectrum’s Floating Engine Room Unit mega-block set sail on its 3-day, 296 nautical mile journey down the River Ems to the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Royal Caribbean International documented the journey down the River Ems. Watch the video to see just how much went in to the movement of this massive Floating Engine Room.

The mega-block was built in Rostock, Germany and measures 11.7 meters by 41.5 meters. The massive blocks weighs in at 10,800 tons (the equivalent of 86 blue whales). Hydraulics were then used to move the Floating Engine Room Unit onto a pontoon which took a whopping eight hours and significant man-power!

The mega-block is expected to attach to the rest of the ship, which is scheduled for delivery in 2019. Spectrum of the Seas will be Royal Caribbean’s first Quantum Ultra-Class ship, and has been designed specifically for the Chinese market.
