New photos shared online show the new lifeboats for Odyssey of the Seas on their way to the shipyard.

Unimedien shared photos and even a video of lifeboats being delivered for Royal Caribbean's next new cruise ship.

The lifeboats were moved from the Fassmer shipyard in Berne, Germany through the Küstenkanal canal to the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

On June 30,  Royal Caribbean announced Odyssey of the Seas will be delayed until April 2021, when she will begin sailing in Rome.

The cause of the delay is a combination of the global health crisis, delays in the supply chain, and fires at the shipyard compounding other shipyard issues.

Odyssey of the Seas will be Royal Caribbean's second Quantum Ultra Class ship and will come in at 168,000 gross-tons.
