Odyssey of the Seas construction photo update - October 30, 2020

Here is one last Odyssey of the Seas construction photo to share before the month of October ends.

Royal Caribbean's next new cruise ship is under construction in Hall 6 of Meyer Werft shipyard.

The photo was released by the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

Odyssey of the Seas is scheduled to sail in Spring 2021, with newly added sailings in April from Southampton and Barcelona.

Once Odyssey completes these new sailings, she will spend her summer in Rome offering sailing Eastern Mediterranean cruises.

Finally, Odyssey will head to the United States for her North American debut in November 2021. There she will continue her inaugural year in Fort Lauderdale, FL with 8- and 6-night Caribbean itineraries.

Delivery still on schedule

Over the last few weeks, Royal Caribbean has confirmed that Odyssey of the Seas is on schedule for her 2021 delivery.

She was originally to debut in November 2020, but delays at the shipyard due to the global health crisis changed plans.

Nonetheless, her current delivery date appears to be accurate, as Royal Caribbean Group confirmed this week in its third quarter earnings report that Royal Caribbean Group has allocated funds for delivery of Odyssey of the Seas during the first quarter of 2021.

Some cruise fans have also noted the fact Royal Caribbean added earlier sailings from Southampton and Barcelona to be a positive sign that the ship is going to be delivered on time.
