As Seabourn Odyssey is being prepared for her maiden Voyage in just a few short weeks, the second sister is also “coming of age” over at San Giorgio di Nogaro. If you recall, the hull segments are built in two halves and then set on barges and taken to a place called Rijeka in Croatia where they can be joined into one sleek hull. This week, the front half of Seabourn Sojourn’s hull was finished and carefully loaded onto a semi-submersible barge for the trip to Rijeka. There it will be precisely fitted against the aft half of the hull and the two will be welded together. Once they are joined and the hull has been made watertight, it will be towed around the boot of Italy from the Adriatic up to Genoa and the Mariotti shipyard. It appears that both Odyssey and Sojourn’s hull may be there at the same time just before Odyssey departs for Venice. Once the Sojourn hull leaves Nogaro, the workers will begin crafting the hull segments for the third sister.
