Icon of the Seas Blocks Are In The House!

The sphere definitely looks like a stairway. Given its location in the middle of the ship, maybe it's the entrance to a venue along the Royal Promenade. I could imagine it's a large digital projection dome you pass through to enter a nightclub? Restaurant? Bar? Hopefully we learn more soon. 

 

Circular stair to casino😉

A stern keel piece maybe. It's all I got... there is not much we can see in the ship yard lately. 😌

We definitely need a dose of updates and photos.

 

Loyal to Royal twitter page shared a video of a block on the move. However you really can’t see the building dock and were it was placed.

MERI is heading soon to Turku, arriving on friday morning. It's now in Gdansk, but before that it was in Klaipeda, and that could mean it might be time for the bow (but just guessing). My drone broke two weeks ago (motors stopped working) and it's still heading to the service center (nearly 2 weeks already and still not arrived in the Netherlands where they repair them). I decided to order a new drone, I hope to get it within 1-2 weeks when they get them in stock. It will take ages before I get my old one back if just transporting takes that long.

Looks to be that one behind the bulb, arrived in two parts about 3 weeks ago.

Thank you for the update on the (possible) Icon of the Seas bow!

Sorry to hear about your drone. Glad that you are able to get a new one, & of course thank you so much for updating us on the Icon of the Seas build with your great images.

Well, managed to see from the Port of Gdansk's webcam what Meri will bring to Turku, and still not bow. And new ETA for Meri is tomorrow evening.

I wonder how many different ports and locations are building the various blocks for the Icon.

Like a car some parts are USA and some are foreign and then assembled in another location.

Would be interesting to know just where all the parts come from.

Thanks for sharing these photos. They look like blocks of decks 7,8 and 9 to be installed above the Lifeboats.

This hull design is very odd. It appears Icon's lifeboats may be positioned very differently than the Oasis-class—above the main deck rather than hanging below it. And is it possible Icon will have a real promenade deck? On Oasis ships the Central Park basically replaced space that could have been an outside promenade deck. These images look like Icon will have very wide spaces facing the sea on the main deck with the lifeboats above—like on more older ships, as well as Quantum-class.

A block in Gdansk that is in the same area as were the two Icon of the Seas blocks being delivered yesterday by Meri.
It just might belong to the Icon of the Seas as well. Could that left top corner be a possible seating area for the AquaTheatre on the upper decks? 😃

That could be for the Ice Skating rink.

I won't even bother to ask how you managed to find these photos. 😁

That certainly looks like a possibility!

True.

You have seen the renderings. Can we definitely rule out it being the AquaTheatre?

I am looking at what is around that corner section to determine where this spot may be located.

If that were the rink (on deck 4 most likely), then that would be decks 3 to 1 below it. That doesn't look like it would be those decks, especially decks 1 &  2.

Good point and observation. If I recall correctly, I think Studio B on Oasis Class  is on decks 4,3 and 2 perhaps the lowest?. There were some blocks either posted here or on FB by you or @Lloyd555 that some referred to as a ski slope. Is this similar to that maybe?

I saw your post elsewhere. Good one. 😁
So is that what the sphere could possibly look like when its poking out of deck8 floor and into the neighborhood?

 

 

I can only assume that there will be a glass wall around the sphere, allowing guests to see not only it but the open area behind it.

Lloyd, where is the shipyard located in Gdansk.  Would it be visable from Voyager who will be stopping there as a replacement for  St. Petersburg.
