Germany: 330 Shipyard Workers Complete MS EUROPA's Facelift

The focus of the works carried out on the EUROPA during her 13-day shipyard stay was a complete facelift of the interior design of the Lido Café, which now boasts a new design of shades of beige and dark blue. Furthermore, the bathrooms on Deck 9 were gutted and redesigned according to the latest standards.

Here, light-coloured virgin stone and granite create a modern ambiance. The two Penthouse Grand Suites, each measuring 85 square meters/ 915 square feet, were also overhauled in every respect and fully renovated in the living and sleeping areas as well as in the bathrooms. Beyond this, a new communication system was installed in all of the suites.

A total of 330 shipyard workers, technicians and engineers were involved in the comprehensive renovations on board. The complete shipyard list consisted of several hundred items. Twenty-four containers and three trucks delivered the required spare parts, furniture and carpets to the shipyard with a view to the implementation of the envisaged works. In total, 2000 square meters/ 21528 square feet of new carpet were fitted on the EUROPA, and 5600 litres of paint were used to provide the ship with a makeover both on the inside and on the outside.

With immediate effect, the new communication system Media4Cruises by Siemens ensures state-of-the-art infotainment in all of the suites. Besides the features already available in the past such as video and music on demand, television, access to the latest news, weather forecasts as well as information on the ship and the itinerary, it boasts additional services, e.g. the possibility of posting electronic greeting cards. The system is very user-friendly and also offers the guests convenient Internet access using their own smartphones and tablet PCs.
