Thomson Cruises has posted one of the best dry dock videos of the year so far. Watch as Royal Caribbean’s Splendour of the Seas is transformed to the new TUI Discovery for British based cruise line Thomson Cruises.
Back in early 2015 both cruise lines announced that Splendour of the Seas will be purchased by Thomson with the 69,100 gross ton vessel being transferred in 2016. Once Thomson Cruises took control of the vessel it went through a major multi million pound dry dock. The ship’s last voyage for Royal Caribbean was on April 4, 2016.
You can take a look at the video below where the ship can be seen getting a huge makeover including a totally new paint job, upgrades externally and brand new features inside. The ship has been in dry dock since April and being refurbished for the British cruise market.
