Meyer Turku shipyard celebrated the end of 2023 with another big milestone.

This was the start of the hull assembly of ‘Star of the Seas’, the second Royal Caribbean Icon-class ship.

The keel laying ceremony was held on the 15th December.

“’Star of the Seas’ is very important for both the shipyard and the partner network: the 13,000 man-years spent on building the ship create employment and business in Varsinais-Suomi and, with the supply chains, significantly wider as well.

“Once the ship is complete, it will strengthen a completely new kind of cruise experience with the standards set by its sister ship ‘Icon’,” said Meyer Turku CEO, Tim Meyer (pictured).
