In 2011 I had a chance to tour Meyer Werft Shipyard in Papenburg,Germany.The Aida Sol had just been undocked a week before.Under construction were the Celebrity Silhouette and the Disney Fantasy,here ill be adding photos about this tour.I must its worth the visit.

The first thing I saw upon arrival at Meyer Werft was the Aida Sol,which had been floated out a week before.

Upon entering the main building you are lead to a lounge after a short wait you are sent into a small cinema area,here a 10 minute film is shown with the History of the shipyard.

The missus was there a few weeks ago to see Quantum and Anthem of the Seas being built - all hard hats and goggles. Don't think Anthem is quite ready yet :D
