Royal Caribbean’s Ovation of the Seas has been floated out from the Meyer Werft Shipyard along the Ems River toward the Black Sea.
The ship was getting plenty of admiring glances as she made her way down the shallow waterway – even the local livestock were impressed.
Ovation will officially launch in April and spend her first season cruising in Asia. She will then head to Sydney in December this year, making her the largest ship ever to homeport in Australia.
