For the marine interior refurbishment specialists, the last three months have been spent securing work with P&O Cruises, Disney Cruises, Cunard Line Noble Caledonia, Windstar Cruises, Thomson Cruises, Holland America Line and Royal Caribbean.

Recent refurbishments carried out have included a £3m refit for Thomson Cruises’ Thomson Dream, as well as a refresh of the company’s Thomson Celebration.

There are many projects in the pipeline for Trimline over the next few months, including refits for P&O Cruises, Noble Caledonia, Cunard Line, Windstar Cruises, The World, Thompson Cruises, Holland America Line, Seabourn, Azamara and Grand Circle Cruises.

Trimline’s ceo Andrew Richards said: 'There has been a real growth in the marine refit market with customers wanting more from their cruises.'
