The river conveyance is a unique process for the ships built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Unconventionally situated inland to avoid impact from the storms in the North Seas, Meyer Werft has been sailing ships down the River Ems 32 kilometers to sea since 1795.
Quantum of the Seas has already begun her 10 hour journey and I have highlighted it so far in today’s photo blog.
With the introduction of Quantum of the Seas in 2014 (the introduction of Anthem of the Seas in 2015 and Ovation of the Seas in 2016), Royal Caribbean takes WOW innovations to new heights — literally — with the unveiling of North Star, an awe—inspiring experience where a jewel-like glass capsule takes guests on a spectacular journey more than 300 feet in the air to deliver unprecedented 360-degree views; RipCord by iFly, the first skydiving simulator at sea; as well as the first bumper car and roller skating offerings at sea.
