At Aker Finnyard in Turku, Finland two blocks were finished on schedule under severe weather conditions (minus 24 centigrades) last month. The blocks each weigh some 800 tons and are built in two separate elements (PS and SB). Final connection will take place in the dock on the Freedom III vessel. At the moment some 60 Genfer Lloyd co-workers are working at Finnyard under the direction of site manager Gracjan Borowiak. Work leaders are foremen Robert Adamski and Wiktor Brzostek.

Independence of the seas is much further on than this and the construction looks different bigger building blocks.

Construction of the “Genesis” cruise ship started at Finnyard in Turku, Finland on March 1. Aker Yard employees and Aker Yard partners, including Genfer Lloyd, were invited to celebrate the start-up with a so called “Production Cake”. The “Genesis” will be the biggest cruise ship in the entire world and its dimensions are mind boggling: length 360 meters, tonnage 190,000 GT, passenger capacity 5,400 plus 1,800 crew, cost approximately €900m. The Genfer Lloyd team will start working on the “Genesis” in September 2007.

I hope it's no mistake and that the length will be 160 meters. Please, not bigger

Well, I sure hope Independence is further along than this since she has floated out already. If not, she would be on the bottom of the ocean.

I am sure that I will try the ship out however tendering will be a nightmare with 5,000 unless they get a better way to do it on these huge ships. To me even tender tickets can sometimes take a hour before you are on land from the time posted on your ticket and this is with a smaller ship like the Voyager Class.

The skuttlebutt from Liberty last week was the Genesis ship would have two promenades, two flowriders and a swim-up pool with a sandy beach and wave machine. Has anyone else heard this?

Of course they all told me "this is speculation" but it was said by quite a few crew members.

I am pretty sure the two flowriders is true. I heard it on RCTV when CD Becky Thompson was doing an on air interview with one of the activities directors on Freedom.

My son wants to do this ship when it come out but I am not convinced. I cruised Freedom and though it was an amazing ship, it was just too big for a 7 night cruise with 4 port days. There was not time to see and do all that it had to offer. I was racing the whole time instead of relaxing. We are dropping back down to Voyager class next summer. Its at least a ship the whole family can agree upon.

To me that's an advantage as we like to return to a ship. What you don't do on one cruise you do on another.

family cruiser...
I felt the same on the LOS.. loved the ship,
but ran the whole time, not much time to relax
but a few hours on the beach......so many things
happening on the ship at once... would stick to
3 ports instead of 4 next time too.
Hubby wants to go on the Genesis...I have mixed
feelings.

Those are not photos of the Genesis above. Those were of the Independence. I posted this link a week or so go showing the first pieces of Genesis.
http://www.steve-read.co.uk/GenesisSep2007/

Also the place where I obtained this link has a worker from Aker yards who posts on there and keeps us up to date with the construction of RCI ships and photos, posted the below on September 16th in a thread concerning the Genesis. Keep in mind when reading this that the person is Finnish and his skills with the English language are not perfect.

I have to correct some things about Genesis, the keel-laying will not happens in december, its more like january - february period, maybe later. It all depens of modyfication of our drydock area, is supouse to take 5 moths of time, so you can calculate the possible keel-laying moment.
About genesis fotos, there is really nothing mutch to see yet,
So be patient G will come ... in time!

After looking at them, yes it is. Again I posted this link in a new thread about a week or so ago with those photos stating when the Genesis keel would be put down.
