Earlier this week, Royal Caribbean's newest cruise ship floated out of its Meyer Werft shipyard, and we have a first look at what the ship looks like lit up at night.

The talented photographer, Björn Haß, sent us these great shots of Spectrum of the Seas.

The ship is scheduled to be delivered in April 2019.

Spectrum of the Seas is entering her final phases of construction. See what it takes to install the ships massive propellers for its azipod propulsion system. Designed specifically for the Chinese market, Spectrum of the Seas will be the largest and most expensive ship in Asia when she sails from Shanghai, China starting in June 2019.

Meyer Werft shipyard has announced Spectrum of the Seas is scheduled to leave its dock on February 25, 2019.

Once Spectrum of the Seas has left the dock, she will berth at Meyer Werft's out-fitting pier to be fitted with its funnel cladding.  If the weather holds up, the plan is for the North Star to also be installed on the ship.

The plan is for Spectrum to remain in the shipyard for further work and onboard trials until the ship's conveyance through the river Ems up to the North Seas, sometime in March 2019.

The ship yard reiterated that all of these plans are contingent on weather, and delays may result.  Before Spectrum of the Seas can berth at the out-fitting pier, the floating section (engine room unit) of the Norwegian Encore that is currently moored here will have to be moved to another berth in the shipyard port. Once the Spectrum of the Seas has left the dock, the floating part for the Norwegian Encore, which is due for completion in autumn 2019, will be maneuvered back into the free covered building dock II for further construction work.

Royal Caribbean's China website has posted a video that gives an artist rendering of a few of the venues on the cruise line's next cruise ship, Spectrum of the Seas.

Spectrum of the Seas will be the first Quantum Ultra Class cruise ship and is scheduled for delivery in 2019.

The ship will feature a number of firsts for a Royal Caribbean ship, including the cruise line’s first private enclave for suite guests, new stateroom categories, "innovative dining concepts", and "stunning features and experiences".

Thanks to Lloyd Marchand for alerting us to this video.

Spectrum of the Seas is another step closer to completion. The ship’s two large megablocks were merged and fastened together at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg Germany – the latest milestone in her unique building process. Spectrum is scheduled for delivery in 2019.

The shipyard that is building Royal Caribbean's Spectrum of the Seas released a batch of photos to show off the progress being made on Royal Caribbean's first Quantum Ultra Class cruise ship.

The photos were posted to the shipyard's Facebook page, and shows off that the bridge block was added to Spectrum of the Seas, weighing 750 tons.  In fact, the bridge block was barely light enough for the largest crane in Meyer Werft's yard to handle (the crane can handle up to 800 tons).

Spectrum of the Seas will be the first in the Quantum Ultra class of ships, and will boast the cruise line’s first private enclave for suite guests, new stateroom categories, innovative dining concepts, and stunning features and experiences – many of which have never before been seen at sea. Spectrum will be the largest and most expensive ship in Asia when she sails from Shanghai starting in June 2019.
