A partial float out has taken place for Anthem of the Seas, which is currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany.
Footage has been uploaded onto YouTube showing a large mid section of the ship exiting one of the yard’s hangers.
This is the first section of the ship to be floated out and it was certainly an impressive thanks to the sheer enormity of the vessel, despite the fact that it will be much longer once it is fully constructed.
The newest addition to Royal Caribbean’s UK fleet, Anthem of the Seas is due to make waves at Southampton from next year.
It is one of two major new vessels being constructed specifically for the UK cruise market, with P&O’s Britannia also set to sail from Southampton.
Among the features on Anthem of the Seas will be a second Jamie’s Italian Restaurant at sea, with the first appearing on Quantum of the Seas when it makes its debut later this year.
