Industry leader discusses the Importance of ship interior refreshes

With most cruise ships that are already in service having a major refit every 2 years, and some new-build ships planning a major refit up to every 5 years, maintaining the high standards of the ship interiors between refits is vital to the overall passenger experience. At any time during the ship refit cycle, the passenger expects the same standard of interior furnishing.

Wear and tear is a major factor for cruise lines with several thousand-people boarding their ships each week. Carpets and flooring get worn, dance floors get scratched, wall coverings knocked, upholstery soiled and generally, furniture gets damaged.

During a refresh, marine interior contractors like Trimline, bring specialist marine trades onboard (joiners, soft furnishers, carpet fitters, hard surface repair experts, french polishers, decorators etc) to update areas showing signs of wear, returning them to their original condition before passenger awareness.

In addition to the major refits that Trimline have just undertaken including Marella Discovery 2, Zuiderdam, Arcadia, Crystal Symphony and Sage Sapphire, they have also carried out many ‘refreshes’ in the last few weeks alone including Marella Dream and Marella Celebration, and as the market leaves a longer term in between major refits, this is a trend set to increase.
