Interior outfitter Trimline has completed a refurbishment of TUI Cruises’ Mein Schiff 4 during an 11-day refit in Marseille, France, redesigning two restaurants, a bar and a lounge.
The Café Lounge has undergone a full refurbishment as the venue was adapted into a day-to-night French Bistro, while Diamant Bar now features a new design. Italian specialty restaurant La Spezia and Japanese restaurant Hanami by Tim Raue have also been remodeled to incorporate new designs.
“We were very impressed by the great team spirit that was visible for us throughout the entire dry dock time,” Eline Daetweiler, senior maintenance, repair, and operations manager at TUI Cruises. “All technical crew were working hand in hand in a very professional way under the leadership of the on-site project management.”
Over 40 items of bespoke joinery were custom made and installed onboard, including a wine chiller cabinet and booth seating. Trimline also sourced a working Vespa for La Spezia, which was then decommissioned and refurbished before being installed in the restaurant.
“We are delighted with how the ship looks and at how close to the original design the finished areas actually are,” said Trimline’s commercial manager Simon Dawkins. “In the end, there is hardly any difference from the initial design renders of the areas.”
