Sembcorp Marine repaired and upgraded a record 16 cruise ships last year.
This including the completion of Star Cruises’ ‘Star Legend’ in December.
The company said that it had signed exclusive favoured customer contract (FCC) partnerships with Carnival Corp and Royal Caribbean Cruises – the world’s top two cruise companies – as well as established strong ties with Star Cruises, Asia’s leading cruise line.
With the strong growth in global cruise tourism, especially in Asia, Sembcorp claimed that it was well-positioned to capitalise on the boom in this niche market.
The outlook for cruise ship repairs remains strong, Sembcorp Marine said.
