Blu Marine started work mid-February with a core team of 30 craftsmen fitting out various areas throughout the ship, including the following –
New club class lounge – works included new interior bulkheads with a timber walnut upper feature panel incorporating stainless steel portholes. The existing carpets, seating and walnut tables were all replaced. The existing bar top was modified to create a self-serving counter with new drinks units below. The existing walls received a new Tektura finish throughout.
Main Bar – New carpets were installed throughout with new Oak table tops. The existing walls received new wall coverings with feature graphics.
Coffee area & food court – New wood plank floor finishes installed throughout with the existing seating being re-upholstered with new fabric . New s/steel counter tops were installed with separating balustrade glass screens and new wall coverings throughout.
Toilets – The existing toilets received new strataflex wall finishes and new vinyl floor finish throughout. The existing Vanity tops were upgraded with new taps & mirrors. Existing lighting was changed to new LED throughout.
Overall a very successful refit which we are proud to have completed and pleased to say has led to further works on board The Express and within the P&O fleet.
