Contractor De Wave Group has completed four 2021 outfitting projects onboard newly built cruise ships, including Holland America Line’s Rotterdam, MSC Cruises’ MSC Seashore, Viking Cruises’ Viking Venus and Virgin Voyages’ Valiant Lady.
Work on Rotterdam focused on the spa, gym and beauty salon areas, including massage rooms, a gym, fitness area and dressing rooms, and a beauty and hair salon. De Wave Group also outfitted a thermal complex comprising a Turkish bath with mosaic walls and cupola ceiling, sauna, swimming pool, horizontal shower and chromotherapy showers. The ship was delivered at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard on 30 July.
On MSC Seashore, De Wave Group coordinated a team on 80 workers to outfit areas of the MSC Yacht Club, an outdoor steakhouse and an ice cream bar. The contractor also carried out work on the arcade and a bar on deck 20, as well as installing pools, a Jacuzzi and an infinity whirlpool. MSC Seashore was then delivered at Fincantieri’s Monfalcone shipyard on 31 July.
