Major refit at Damen

On 19 December Damen Shiprepair in Rotterdam redelivered Saga Sapphire after her major refit, including the replacement of the ship’s two sewage plants, a job that involved cutting through the hull.

In addition, the vessel’s freshwater tanks were sand-blasted and repainted, but with around 425 people, including members of the ship’s crew, living on board, arrangements had to be made to supply fresh water and remove grey water. Deck steelwork, lifeboats and davits also received attention, as did piping, electrical and hydraulic systems. The 37,000 ton Saga Sapphire sailed on schedule for her Christmas Canary Islands cruise.
