The Virginian Pilot reported that the Disney Wonder, a 964-ft. Disney Cruise Line ship arrived at BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair last week for a 10-day overhaul. The yard has assigned 200 employees and subcontractors to blast and paint the hull, change out propellers and do basic hull, mechanical and electrical work. Disney brought in an additional 600 contractors for interior work. The cruise ship receives dry dock maintenance twice every five years and has visited the Norfolk shipyard twice before.
