Hi everybody.  For those ship geeks out there like me, the float-out date for Quantum has recently been revealed online.  She will be floated out of Hall 2 at Meyer Werft on August 2 at approximately 1am Eastern time.  Thanks to a particularly awesome thread on Cruise Critic about the Quantum construction, I have the link for a website where we will be able to watch the float-out in real time.  It will be a late Friday/early Saturday morning but I know I'll be up watching!




If anyone is interested in that CC thread, it is: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1855809


There are some truly amazing pictures scattered throughout the thread of the entire construction process for Quantum.
