The modernized Papenburg shipbuilding and repair yard of Meyer Werft features what is claimed to be the world's largest covered building dock. The dock's features are described, as are those of the first vessel to be floated into it after 18 months of outdoor construction, the 1221-passenger cruise ship CROWN ODYSSEY. The divided building dock was large enough to allow the building of a block for the next ship to take place at the same time that the 187.74m CROWN ODYSSEY was being fitted out.
