ALMACO to build 81 new cabins on Navigator of the Seas

ALMACO was awarded the contract to build 81 new cabins on board Navigator of the Seas during its January drydock at Grand Bahama Shipyard. The turnkey contract includes design, interior, insulation, electrical works and piping.

'We are thrilled to join Royal Caribbean International in this exciting project,' said Ana Albert, vp sales and marketing for ALMACO.

The contractor has installed more than 1,000 new cabins and wet units to existing ships during the past 15 years.

'ALMACO is fully capable of delivering these short time frame projects due to the high level of planning that goes into prefabricating as well as our expert engineering and project management teams,' Albert said.

The 2002-built Navigator of the Seas is scheduled for a four-week revitalization in Freeport in January.

The cabins will be added to Decks 2, 3 and 12. The current boardroom on Deck 2 will be converted into four new cabins. The photo gallery, pizza dining and nightclub areas on Deck 3 will be modified to accommodate 39 new accommodations. The remaining 38 new cabins will be added to Deck 12.

As part of the project, the shipyard will deliver the new aluminum housing for Deck 12, which ALMACO will pre-outfit prior to lifting the blocks on board. Extensive work in prefabricating the modular cabins will be done before the drydock, which will allow ALMACO to complete the new cabin areas within the designated short time frame.
