New crew cabins for Celebrity Summit by ALMACO Group

New crew cabins for Celebrity Summit by ALMACO Group
Celebrity Cruises has awarded ALMACO Group the contract to build 16 new crew cabins onboard Celebrity Summit during a short drydock currently taking place at Grand Bahamas Shipyard and continuing during sailing.

A notable aspect of this project is the extremely short timeframe from the date when the order was received, which was December 16, to the start of the project on February 29.

Both the block stage works in GBS and preparation work on Celebrity Summit started before the vessel reached the shipyard.

Herve Touzard, vp after sales for marine, stated, 'ALMACO’s experienced organization and in-house capabilities in engineering, purchasing and project management in coordination with the owner’s and the yard’s project teams allow for this short turnaround.'
ALMACO Group has built a combined 60 cabins during sailings on separate occasions for Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas this past year. Since the company’s beginning, ALMACO has built and modernized over 25,000 cabins.
