UK-based marine interior refurbishment firm Trimline has completed a 14-day refurbishment of the 55,000gt Thomson Dream in Gibraltar.


Following a recent refurbishment of Thomson Celebration, Trimline’s 187-strong team of joiners, fitters, furnishers, deck head staff, plumbers, electricians and decorators boarded the ship as passengers disembarked in Malaga, Spain. The work was completed before the next guests embarked in Lanzarote, Spain.

“The work to Thomson Dream came after a successful refurbishment of Thomson Celebration, which Trimline were delighted to win,” said Andrew Richards, CEO at Trimline. “Winning repeat refurbishments is testament to the work of our team and the commitment and dedication that we show to our customers. Heading into our 50th anniversary in 2015, this is a quality that Trimline is very proud of.”

Reconfiguration work took place inside the ship, where Trimline fitted new baths and bath panels in a number of bathrooms, and created four new guest cabins with wet units constructed and plumbed by Trimline. The company also completed electrical work and added furnishings.

Trimline also replaced the carpets, curtains and more than 500 chair and sofa covers in the Broadway Show Lounge. All fabrics and upholstery were manufactured by Trimline’s in-house soft furnishings team at the company’s headquarters in Southampton, UK.

New carpets were also fitted in the Lido Restaurant and Ocean Bar, which also features refreshed optics and decorations to low-level cabinets on the back bar back bar. Meanwhile, the Photo Studio features newly clad and painted shutters, as well as new carpets and curtains.

In addition, the Sunlounge Bar now has a stainless steel bar top and a full-length canopy over the outside bar seating, while Trimline repaired 42 sqm of flooring and fitted new carpets, tiles and roller blinds in the Sirens Restaurant.

Located on deck 11, the Terrace Grill now has new shutters, repainted deck heads and perimeter lighting, while the bar has been re-clad with teak effect tiles.

Elsewhere, the Shorex Desk and the Thomson Manager Office were fitted with Amtico flooring, banquet seating and new desks, while three multimedia pods were created and installed to enable passengers to book excursions while onboard.

Flooring, deck heads, lighting and bulk heads were replaced in seven of the ship’s elevators, while 19 public toilets were re-decorated with marble tops, taps and toilet back boxes.
