Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Odyssey of the Seas was originally due to set sail on 5th November 2020. Unfortunately, a pause in shipyard operations meant that Odyssey’s launch date was been pushed back to spring 2021.
The good news is that work on Odyssey of the Seas is currently underway and she has been floated out of the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany.

Once the interior work on Odyssey of the Seas is completed, she will be floated down the river Ems for sea trials.
