On Friday, July 24, Spirit of Adventure - the 2nd new cruise ship for the UK-based company Saga Cruises - left Meyer Werft’s drydock (the covered building dock I / Hall 5).

The vessel's float out started Friday morning. During it, the funnel was lifted onto the ship by crane and was mounted. In the afternoon Spirit of Adventure was then moved to the outfitting pier for a variety of tests. Afterwards, she berthed at the outfitting pier. During the following days, more tests will be executed at the shipyard's outfitting pier.

In August, Spirit of Adventure will probably commence the passage on River Ems to Port Emden, Germany to begin North Sea trials later on.

The 58,250 GT-tons boat has an overall length of 236 m (774 ft), width 31,2 m (102 ft), 554 staterooms, 10 decks (6 with cabins), max passenger capacity 999, max crew capacity 505, max speed 23 knots (43 kph / 26 mph).
