As Scenic’s second “Discovery Yacht”, the Eclipse II will provide a superlative cruise experience. Pampering up to 228 guests in 114 six-star suites of exceptional comfort and style, she will take them to explore many of the most memorable lesser-visited places on earth, from the immense glaciers of Greenland to the majestic Norwegian fjords and geological splendours of Iceland. The expedition experience offered will be equally exclusive, guided by an expert Discovery Team to explore along, below and above the horizon by zodiac, submarine and helicopter.

De Wave Group undertakes major project in Singapore as P&O Cruises Australia transforms its fleet with entry of Pacific Encounter and Pacific Adventure to follow

Pressemitteilung

Following its involvement in the extensive refurbishment of Pacific Explorer last year, the De Wave Group is again contributing to P&O Cruises Australia’s fleet transformation project with recent work on Pacific Encounter at the Sembcorp Marine shipyard in Singapore in preparation for the ship joining the P&O fleet. De Wave Group is also set to contribute to Pacific Adventure’s preparation for its planned entry to the fleet later this year.

Australia’s leading cruise line after nearly 90 years of cruising from Australia, P&O Cruises is operated by Carnival Australia, the nation’s largest cruise organisation, which, in turn, is part of the Holland America Group (HAG) of cruise lines within the global travel and leisure group Carnival Corporation & plc.

The De Wave Group’s contribution to the recent Pacific Encounter project involved skilled work on the ship’s interiors as the sole contractor providing a full turnkey service inclusive of all logistical and technical aspects.

Giacomo Poggi, Chief Executive Officer of Precetti Far-East, commented: “Even in this challenging period, we were able to organise many containers of materials and coordinate the work of a team of over 200 skilled people from 4 continents, successfully completing a highly prestigious project for our Group.”

The works on Pacific Encounter

In preparation for joining the P&O Cruises Australia fleet from sister brand Princess Cruises, Pacific Encounter was refitted with new fixed furnishings, upholstery, and floor and wall coverings. In addition, the existing ceilings were repainted. The project involved around 50 containers of shipped materials, 200 people from 4 continents split across the various works, over 5,000 sq. m of refurbished areas, more than 3,000 sq. m of wall coverings, 3,500 sq. m of outdoor artificial turf, 8,000 sq. m of fabrics and 10,000 sq. m of carpets fitted. A significant part of the project undertaken by the De Wave Group’s skilled workers was on the dining area called ‘The Pantry’, installing special catering fittings including protective glass screens with LED lights and built-in heating lamps, which are integral to maintaining the health and well-being of guests and crew.

Areas involved in the work on Pacific Encounter included:

  • WATERFRONT DK 5 – DINING ROOM
  • ANGELO’S DK 6 – DINING ROOM
  • DRAGON LADY DK 6 – DINING ROOM
  • INTERNET DK.05
