ALMACO Group recently delievered 36 new luxurious Seabreeze Penthouses and two new spacious Seabreeze Penthouse Suites to Crystal Cruises’ ocean-going vessel Crystal Serenity. The project, which was part of an extensive redesign of the ship, started during the drydock at Lloyd Werft shipyard in Bremehaven, Germany, in mid-October and the suites were delivered on November 10, 2018, in Lisbon, Portugal, from where the ship sailed towards Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

ALMACO’s scope of work included demolishing the existing 58 Standard staterooms on deck 10 and building in their place two new Seabreeze Penthouse Suites and 36 Seabreeze Penthouses, increasing significantly the space and decreasing the guest count to provide a more exclusive guest experience.

This project presented greater complexities in the construction and a very tight installation schedule for ALMACO’s team. 

“This was a successful project for ALMACO not only because we were able to work closely with Crystal’s and Lloyd Werft’s teams, but also because we were able to make our own project team more agile and lean, with thorough risk analysis and prevention plans,” said Tommi Virta, ALMACO’s Project Manager.
