In dry dock with ORIANA

With ORIANA's refit complete and having left dry dock heading back down river we take another brief trip to Germany to have a look at some of the work that took place during the refit.
With her hull cleaned and freshly painted ORIANA waits to return to the water.

Alongside the upgrade to cabins/bathrooms and the revitalised public spaces ORIANA has been undergoing the regular dry dock hull inspections which are required every 5 years and cleaning /maintenance including the ship any work required on the hull, rudders, propellors, shafts and seals.

As mentioned earlier in the year during the refit ORIANA's emergency generators have been undergoing a complete overhaul.
From the cruisers perspective the most important changes are to her accommodation and below share some  images from around the ship showing the work in progress.
