The latest webcam image is the one that I posted sans Sky Pad. If you're seeing Sept 1 image, you may be having the issue that I was having, where I was seeing new date, but I wasn't seeing updated webcam image on my phone when I clicked on  webcam app icon. I now go to Google and search Meyer Werft webcam to ensure that it's the right one that I'm seeing. 😁

I went to Meyer Werft on a tour last week and saw Odyssey there. She looked amazing already. Can't wait to sail her in September.

From Meyer Werft:

Oohh, how big is this O. That's what we thought when the name Odyssey of the Seas was finished on the hull of the ship.  The O alone measures 11.2 meters in height.  The entire name spans a full 87.4 meters along the ship.  What do you think of this new “detail” of the outer skin painting?

Not really a fan of it, but I t won’t effect me sailing in her though. 
 

When she is docked though won’t it be mainly under the pier not to mention the abuse by the elements?  Doesn’t seem to make sense to me to be there.🤷‍♂️

It wouldn't be the first time Meyer Werft made a mistake painting the name of the ship.  Norwegian Encore had the "Wonky C" where they used an O cut in half rather than a full letter C.  That was corrected before delivery, as I expect this will.

Compared to her sister Spectrum the placement looks very low. Though ass Biker notes, it's different which is not bad.

The wonky C, that was a good one. :classic_biggrin:

 

But, at 11+ meters high and stretching over 87 meters (!) that is as far as the second or third lifeboat or even further. :classic_ninja:

I really like the big lettering.  I hope they do that to all the fleet as each one goes into dry dock.  It's a great look.

Skier I couldn’t agree more.  It’s a nice change.

Carnival just announced Mardi Gras getting pushed back until February 21

She's far enough along that her AIS transponder has been turned on, so you can now follow her in your favorite tracking app/site.

I think it's going to be hard to maintain rubbing against docks/piers

I'm not so sure.  Here's a picture of Anthem from a similar viewpoint (but on the starboard side), it looks like most of that name is not going to be in contact with the pier/quay/dock.  At least on the Port side as pictured from Meyer Werft...

Correct, but that looks nothing like the placement on the Odyssey 😉

I get that, but you can see where the dock "lands" in my picture and compare it to the Odyssey picture.  Not until you get back to the 'E' do you get to a part of the ship where the dock/bumpers might rub.  Of course, we don't know what that means for the name on the other side of the ship...

See the thruster marker, x in a circle, look for it in the Anthem picture. Plus the Odyssey will ride a little lower once full.

 

As far as Port side, the big O will definitely be on the flat part of the lower hull
