The 71,300gt AIDA Cruises’ ship, named in Hamburg in 2012, has undergone a series of repairs and renovations to its public areas, spa facilities and over 180 cabins.
The work was undertaken in dock in Marseilles and the ship will shortly sail to Palma where the SD team will depart following two weeks of repairs.
Cosmetic repairs and French polishing
The project was headed up by director of marine services Gareth Preston, who said on its completion, ‘We’ve had six cosmetic repairs and French polishing specialists onboard carrying out renovations and spraying, including in the ship’s 2,300sq mtr spa.’
SD Marine Services, a division of UK-based SD Sealants Group, recently also completed work on 38,768gt Phoenix Reisen’s Amera in Hamburg. The £30,000 project required a month-long refurbishment that involved silicone replacement inside all passenger cabins and marked the first major project for SD’s Marine specialists.
