Prize ship nearly complete

//Prize ship nearly complete

celebeclipse.jpgThere’s only a few days left to enter the competition to win a trip on the new ship Celebrity Eclipse asd it leaves the shipyard in Germany and travels down the River Ems to the North Sea.
Entries in the contest – which I am helping to judge – must be submitted by midnight on Sunday. Full details are in my earlier story.
Not sure whether the picture above will be of much inspiration to entrants, but I thought you’d want to see it anyway. It shows the Eclipse nearing completion at the Meyer-Werft yard in Papenberg. And yes, it’s indoors.
epicstern.jpgTalking of new ships, here’s the latest picture of Norwegian Epic, which will leave the STX yard at St Nazaire in France on Friday for its first sea trials.
It’s not the prettiest of vessels, and purists have criticised its top-heavy appearance, with a huge bulge over the bridge. I’m not sure the critics will be soothed by this shot of the stern.
The biggest new ship of 2010, Allure of the Seas – a twin sister for Oasis of the Seas – is being built in Finland. Work is ahead of schedule; Royal Caribbean have announced that it will now be departing on its maiden voyage on December 5, a week earlier than previously planned.
