Voyager of the Seas Arrives at Grand Bahama Shipyard

Monday, May 06, 2002
The Voyager of the Seas, owned by Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, arrived at the Grand Bahama Shipyard on Sunday, May 5 for a two week drydocking. This is the first time that the vessel has been docked since delivery from the builders yard in November 1999 and it is also the first time ever that this class of vessel has been docked in a floating dock. The vessel, which measures 311m long with a beam of 38.7m carries 3144 passengers and 1176 crew and weighs in at approximately 140,000 gross tonnes. It is the largest vessel ever to dock at the yard and purportedly the heaviest vessel ever to dock in a floating dock. The ship is planned to be in dock at the yard for a 14-day maintenance period which will include work on the ABB Azipod propulsion units, regular underwater maintenance, hull treatment and work on board the vessel on systems and accommodation. Commenting, CEO Chris Millman said “ This is a proud moment for all of us at the shipyard. It is a major achievement for the company, that after less than two years in operation we are in a position to take this vessel and it marks a major milestone in our development.”
