I was lucky enough to catch Ovation on a repo from Southampton to Barca on her way to China, balcony cabin, flights & hotel stay for £800pp.... doubt that will ever happen again 🙂

I was on that cruise too as a solo, in a balcony, and it was cheap! What awful weather we had lol!

The dates for April and early May 2021 Caribbean cruises are out. Can we expect Odyssey to sail that area later in May or will her cruises be added to the already posted schedule?

Quiet at Meyer Werft when it comes to this ship. 

Here is a block plan to keep us entertained in the meantime. :classic_tongue:

Lloyd thanks. Is this block plan currently identical to the one for Spectrum as far as you know? I can't tell if it also includes those new forward suites on Spectrum. Thanks.

Are they behind schedule on those other two builds? Fall of 2020 sounds ambitious for completion of Odyssey with two ships still  in the hall.

They build the ships in blocks, mega blocks (assembly of blocks) and I imagine super blocks (assembly of mega blocks).  If you find videos of float-outs of completed ships from this shipyard you will see in some what looks to be only a section of a ship.  Those floating sections are then floated into the portion of the hall seen in the pictures above and assembled into the complete ship.  I'm sure the block and mega block construction is well under way.

No, not yet. The Norwegian Encore is to come by the end of October. Iona (spring 2020) just started (as the Spectrum opened up the space in the building hall). So when the Norwegian Encore is out of the building hall Odyssey (fall 2020) will be the next. Meyer is able to build two large ships and one small one per year.

Have they done the keel laying yet?

I recall that Spectrum keel laying was at Neptun Werft

 

Just the steel cut. No keel laying yet.

Thanks Lloyd. While it's a different department, if you hear anything about when they plan to release the itineraries for booking, please let us know!
