Artania Suite

The refurbishment of the Phoenix Reisen’s Artania was completed by ALMACO, according to a press release.

ALMACO won the contract to refurbish the cabins and suites on the Artania back in April 2022. The ship arrived in Marseille, France for a four-week drydock in November 2022.

“The project was a success and went according to plans thanks to the great teamwork we experienced with Phoenix Reisen,” said Jean-Pierre Lepage, ALMACO’s vice president of modernization accommodation systems.

Eric Guiot, project manager at ALMACO added: “ALMACO’s expertise and long experience in cabin refurbishment was of great importance in making the project run smoothly. Both Phoenix Reisen and ALMACO are very proud of our refurbishment team and the work performed onboard Artania.”

The scope of work on the cruise ship included refurbishing a total of 255 cabins covering an area of about 3060 m2 on three different decks. The ALMACO team also refurbished 64 suites of which 52 were junior suites and 12 were gold suites. The project also included adding new carpets, furniture and fabrics, as well as doing electrical work and wall modifications.

On February 26, the Artania will embark on a 22-night voyage exploring Africa departing from Cape Town with calls in Durban, East London and Port Elizabeth in South Africa; Luderitz and Walvis Bay, Namibia; Luanda, Angola; Principe, Sao Tome and Principe and Banjul, Gambia before reaching Dakar, Senegal.
