Azamara Pursuit Receives Unprecedented Refurbishment in Belfast

   April 6, 2018 ,   Cruise Industry

A cruise ship of Azamara Cruises docked at Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast for "unprecedented" drydock refurbishment.

Newry-based MJM Group will work on Azamara Pursuit (former Adonia) over the next 3 months. MJM usually sends its workforce to undertake projects at docks in mainland Europe or the Caribbean. This is the first time the company undertakes a cruise ship project in Northern Ireland. It shared the project had the potential to "open up Belfast for further work of this scale".

Up to 800 people will be working on the project that is understood to have a value of about GBP 50 million. Harland & Wolff will provide the berthing and support along with other services for the refurbishment project.

Azamara Club Cruises recently bought the vessel and will bring it into service right after the refurb. Azamara Pursuit is due to sail for Southampton UK at the end of July 2018 ahead of her maiden voyage to Norway on August 1, 2018.
