Ovation Of The Seas Begins Conveyance Along River Ems

Royal Caribbean’s latest ship in the Quantum Class, Ovation of the Seas, has started her conveyance from the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg to the North Sea.

The ship will travel 26 miles along the River Ems backwards and at a low speed. The journey will usually take 10 hours and once she arrives in the North Sea, she will undertake a series of sea trials which will give her propulsion systems their first real tests.

The 167,800grt ship will leave for Southampton once testing is complete and is due to arrive in April 2016. She will then undertake a series of cruises before being  officially named. She will then depart Southampton on a Grand 52 night voyage to Tianjin, China. She will be based in China for the Asian market and will depart on her first cruise from Tianjin on 24th June.
