Steel Cutting for Spirit of Adventure

Construction work has begun at Meyer Werft in Papenburg on the second cruise ship for the British shipping company Saga Cruises. The shipyard started its steel-cutting process for Spirit of Adventure. This newbuild for Saga Cruises is to be delivered in summer 2020. 

The teams of Saga Cruises and Meyer Werft pressed the start button on the computer-operated cutting machine that will process the first sheets of steel for the new ship. This marked the start of the vessel’s production. 

Like her sister ship Spirit of Discovery, Spirit of Adventure will be constructed in Building Dock I. It also means three cruise ships will now be delivered to various customers in 2019 and 2020 by Meyer Werft. 

The vessels each have an overall length of 236m, a width of 31.2m and a tonnage measurement of 58,250GT. 999 passengers can be accommodated. 

The new builds will be tailored to the British market with a completely new design to make them stand out in every port, and their interior design and technology will set new standards.
