A cruise ship operated by China’s Blue Dream Cruises has resumed service after undergoing a refit at COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry's Zhoushan facilities.

The Blue Dream Melody (fka AIDA Cruises' AIDAvita) underwent a comprehensive refurbishment over a span of two and a half months. This refit included the addition of shore charging capabilities, renovation of 35 guest cabins across six decks, repair and replacement of PU flooring, an upgraded CCTV camera system, new galley equipment, a renovated onboard theatre, and the installation of large outdoor viewing screens on the open deck.

This project marks the second refit by the same shipyard for Blue Dream Cruises.

The first vessel in the fleet to receive a similar extensive upgrade was the Blue Dream Star.
