Royal Caribbean Cruises’ Liberty of the Seas and Freedom of the Seas Receive Rollback Renovations; Crystal Cruises’ Crystal Serenity Receives Complete Cabin Refit; Sea Level Awarded Splendour of the Seas Viking Crown Lounge Contract from Royal Caribbean Cruises

Miami-based SEA LEVEL MARINE, full-service marine outfitting contractor, celebrates completion of the renovation of Britto Art Gallery, Cupcake Cupboard, Nursery, and Vintages Wine Bar aboard the Liberty of the Seas (January 2011) and Freedom of the Seas (March 2011). The project was completed in seven days during dry-dock in Freeport, Grand Bahama. For these renovations, the SEA LEVEL team led an experienced crew of more than 75 craftsmen and technicians in transforming these spaces to duplicate new venues introduced on the Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas.

Sea Level also announces its recent successful completion of the Crystal Serenity refit (May 2011) for Crystal Cruises at Blohm + Voss shipyard in Hamburg, Germany. The scope of the 14-day project was an interior renovation of all passenger accommodations on the vessel including 436 Standard Staterooms, 72 Penthouses, and 33 Penthouse Suites.  In addition to the upgrade of passenger accommodations, SEA LEVEL renewed finishes in all of the vessel’s passenger corridors including wall finishes, carpet, artwork and lighting. Architectural design for the project was developed by II x IV Design of Toronto.

“I believe this successful and timely finish of a major refit illustrates to the cruise market the capacity and caliber of work our company is capable of,” said SEA LEVEL’s V.P. of Business Development, Darelynn Prejean. “We have put together a skilled team of construction professionals that ensures projects run smoothly and on time.  I believe our continued success and on time completions of marine refits have shown to our clients that SEA LEVEL is a leader in the cruise ship outfitting business.”

Following on the heels of the successful Crystal Serenity project, SEA LEVEL was recently awarded the contract to execute the renovation of the Viking Crown Lounge on the Slendour of the Seas (October 2011) for Royal Caribbean Cruises (RCL) during its 31-day dry-dock in Cadiz, Spain.


Sea Level Marine has established a reputation for quality and organization in cruise ship outfitting and renovation, focusing exclusively on the interior outfitting of cruise vessels. The firm’s experienced management team, President Barry Lee, Scott Clark, Head of Project Management, Safety & Logistics, and Darelynn Prejean, V.P. of Business Development, take a “hands-on” management approach for each dry-dock refit.  SEA LEVEL continues to be the leader in quality cruise ship refurbishment, building on a reputation for excellence, attention to detail, and reliability.
