Sembcorp Marine’s wholly-owned subsidiary Sembawang Shipyard secured an agreement with RCL Cruises, a member of the Royal Caribbean Cruises group, to perform the extensive revitalisation of Royal Caribbean International’s 137,276-gross tonnage, passenger-ship Voyager of the Seas.
"We are very pleased to be chosen by Royal Caribbean for the revitalisation of Voyager of the Seas," said P.K. Ong, deputy president of Sembcorp Marine and managing director of Sembawang Shipyard. "We have over the recent few years, focused strongly on the development of our fast-growing niche markets, one of which is the cruise ship repairs/upgrades and conversion market. As such, we are delighted with this award from Royal Caribbean. Our dedicated Sembawang cruise ship project team has worked very well with Royal Caribbean’s team on several ships and look forward to another successful collaboration on Voyager of the Seas. We thank Royal Caribbean for the support and the confidence in our Shipyard.”
Sembawang Shipyard successfully performed the revitalization of Royal Caribbean International’s Rhapsody of the Seas in 2012 and the Legend of the Seas in 2013. Voyager of the Seas is scheduled to enter the shipyard in the fourth quarter of 2014. She sails out from Sydney for the winter and spring seasons, and in North Asia for summer and autumn.
