Odyssey of the Seas is currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany and the final two blocks were added to the cruise ship this week. The shipyard posted the following photos of the vessel.

Odyssey of the Seas will homeport in Port Everglades starting in November and sail six and eight night cruises to the Caribbean.

Odyssey of the Seas will tout game-changing, technological innovations like the next generation SeaPlex, the largest indoor space for recreational activities at sea, which will see the addition of this venue’s first Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade with club-level views of the competition below; a reimagined Adventure Ocean kids program and a maxed-out teen lounge with gaming consoles, music and movies.

Guests onboard Odyssey of the Seas can enjoy all-new dining, including Teppanyaki, serving East Asian flavors in a traditional Japanese style; and Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar with rustic Italian dishes and a contemporary flair.
