RCCL-Quantum of the Seas reaches the Netherlands

RCCL-Quantum of the Seas has completed a historic conveyance sailing from the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany to the Netherlands. The newly built Royal Caribbean vessel is docked in Eemshaven where she will receive final outfitting and testing before her launch.

The conveyance is unique, because Quantum of the Seas is the largest vessel built at Meyer Werft shipyard. The yard is located 26 nM from the nearest sea, the North Sea, so the cruise ship must travel backward on the River Ems before setting sail. The Meyer Werft shipyard has maintained its location inland for nearly 250 years to avoid the North Sea’s storms.

Royal Caribbean has released an infographic of the conveyance according which, the conditions for each ship must be exact – the moon needs to be full or new, the speed of the winds must be max 20 knots and tidal barriers must be closed.

The cruise ship was guided by two tugboats, power lines had to be rerouted and bridges along the river were forced to be lifted out. Quantum of the Seas gathered thousands of spectators along the route.
