During this time she will be receiving a degreasing and high pressure washing of the hull, application of final anti-corrosive coats and a final inspection processes before dry dock flooding and her return to the Uljanik shipyard for final preparations, which will lead to sea trials in June and her launch on August 15, 2019.

The ship will also offer a 5,920-sq.-ft. spa with a gym and a separate yoga and Pilates studio; two 6-guest helicopters and one 6-guest submarine; plus a 240-seat theater for entertainment and lectures.
