Construction Begins on Allure of the Seas

All is set this morning in STX Europe's empty drydock at Turku (Finland) for the laying of Allure's first block. You can see the supports on which the ship will rest until it is floated up next summer. Beyond the end of the drydock, Oasis of the Seas is visible. Oasis occupied the drydock until November 21 when it was floated out to the finishing dock where it will remain until its sea trials next summer. 
Here the first block of the keel is being lowered into the drydock.
