The public health emergency caused by the spread of Covid-19 continues to have a huge impact on the whole cruise sector. We continue to work behind the scenes because mid- and long-term big projects do not stop and all the actors on the naval industry stage proceed to project and undertake new and even more modern outfitting for cruise ships and yachts.
Our labs are buzzing with activity
In our laboratories and workshops, we continue to shape and bring to life important interior design and naval furniture projects committed to prestigious clients, without forgetting all the necessary precautions and following the strictest security protocols. The second processing line, linked to the materials integrated with the furnishings, such as iron, is in full swing and the use of high-performance vehicles and industry 4.0 techniques allows us to optimize time and resources
At the same time, we are carefully observing everything that happens around us and that involves big naval and cruise companies for whom our commissioners work. In fact, important companies suggest different solutions to cope with the on-going and ever-changing processes. They are also doing everything to make sure that each of their ships is well equipped in order to follow all necessary protocols and to allow travellers to enjoy their safe cruise in the forthcoming months.
From Princess Cruises to Royal Caribbean: stops and news
Princess Cruises, for example, have decided to stop all cruise ships from docking in U.S. homeport until next March 31st in order to draw up a safety plan which can meet the standards required by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Likewise, Carnival Cruise Line has suspended its operations and cancelled all planned cruises in U.S. seas during February and March. Instead, Royal Caribbean has launched an original idea to try out its newly set up anti-Covid protocols in view of the test required by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They will employ volunteers aboard simulated cruise ships to test facilities and protocols. Twenty thousand people have already enrolled for a free cruise between Miami and CocoCay, the Royal private island in the Bahamas.
We, for our part, are committed to providing the best experience and craftsmanship together with technological innovation in production to support the creation of new floating wonders. And when we can finally leave this pandemic nightmare behind us, they will sail the seas around the world and let people dream again.
