 Sembcorp Marine, a global leader in cruise ship repair, refurbishment and conversion work, has successfully upgraded the Pacific Eden (formerly Statendam) and the Pacific Aria (formerly Ryndam) at its Admiralty Yard. 

 
The concurrent drydocking of these two cruise vessels at the same shipyard was a first for its operator P&O Cruises (Australia), which is part of the Carnival Corporation and a long-term partner of Sembcorp Marine.   
 
With the sailaway of the Pacific Aria last week, Sembcorp Marine has set a record of 12 cruise ships repaired, upgraded and refurbished in a single year. Besides P&O Cruises (Australia), the customers for these projects were Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Star Cruises and SkySea Cruise Line. 
 
“2015 has been a busy year for Sembcorp Marine in the area of cruise ship refits and upgrading,” said Sembcorp Marine Executive Vice President and Head of Repairs & Upgrades Wong Lee Lin. “Our successful completion of these very challenging projects reinforces Sembcorp Marine’s reputation as a leader in the cruise refit market. This in turn boosts the status of Singapore as a major global cruise hub.” 
 
“We thank our partners and customers for choosing Sembcorp Marine to execute the projects, and for their trust and confidence in our capabilities,” Ms Wong added. 
 
Sembcorp Marine’s customer portfolio today includes Carnival Corporation and Royal Caribbean Cruises – the world’s top two cruise companies – as well as Star Cruises, Asia’s leading cruise line.
