Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas built one block at a time

Quantum of the Seas, at 140,000 tons, will take 10 hours to make it’s way down the River Ems to the North Sea from the Meyer Weft shipyard.

The individual mega-blocks of Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of the Seas are being floated into the massive building hall to be connected to construct the smartest ship in the world and at 18 decks, that’s a lot of smarts. Anthem of the Seas is the second of the three Quantum class ships, the first, Quantum of the Seas, will be put into service in early November.

The Quantum Class ships encompasses 167,800 gross registered tons, carries 4,180 guests at double occupancy and features 2,090 staterooms. Quantum of the Seas will sail out of New York Harbor from her homeport of Cape Liberty for her inaugural season before departing to her new homeport of Shanghai (Baoshan), China. Anthem of the Seas will debut in Southampton, U.K. in April 2015 sailing Mediterranean itineraries.
