CFC-Compagnie Francaise des Crocieres (new French cruise brand line) has chosen Damen Brest Shipyard to carry out the refurbishment/technical upgrades of their first vessel - CFC Renaissance.

The 1993-built former ms Maasdam of HAL-Holland America will be repainted.

All staterooms and public areas will receive upgrades.

During the drydocking, CFC Renaissance will be also fitted with a ballast water treatment system. The current open-loop scrubber system will be replaced by closed-loop technology to eliminate any pollution from exhaust gas cleaning.

The liner is scheduled to arrive in Brest (France) on Friday, October 7.
