UK marine interior refit firm Trimline predicts that cruise ship operators will increasingly carry out small projects to refresh interiors onboard their ships to keep standards high in between major refurbishments.

These small refresh projects enable cruise operators to quickly replace worn carpets and flooring, damaged furniture and restore other surfaces and furnishings to their original condition before they impact on the passenger experience. Trimline has recently completed such upgrades onboard Marella Cruises’ Marella Dream and Marella Celebration.

“With most cruise ships that are already in service having a major refit every two years, and some newbuilds planning a major refit up to every five years, maintaining the high standards of the ship interiors between refits is vital to the overall passenger experience,” said Trimline in a press release. “At any time during the ship refit cycle, the passenger expects the same standard of interior furnishing.”

Trimline has also renovated Marella Discovery 2, Holland America Line’s Zuiderdam, P&O Cruises’ Arcadia, Crystal Cruises’ Crystal Symphony and Saga Cruises’ Sage Sapphire in the past few months.
