It looks like they built a scaffold around it and enclosed it for sandblasting or painting but in the first photo the stack seems to be painted. Perhaps the coating was rejected and they have to do it again?

Perhaps, or maybe they are hiding the famous funnels until delivery?

Most likely they covered the funnels to protect them from the welding that is/was going on,and also to protect the paint job from the installation of other things that go into and on the stacks like Aeriel Vision, lights for the shows,(or at least the rigging for them) the actual exhaust ducts for the engines etc.Also, theyll be doing a lot of painting to the rest of the ship, so it may to protect them from the overspray also. You can see in the last pic, that some fo the foward balconies are covered in plastic also.

That would be their standard procedure to protect certain areas....Here's the latest web cam photo and if you look at the picture above the Dream you will see the same canopy's over that ship. They did the same thing to the Celebrity ships that were previously in that dock...
