Refurbished cruise trucks are often cheaper than brand new vessels but with all the benefits of a new set sail. Kerry Spencer, Editor of Cruise Critic, told Express.co.uk: “While publication an older ship has long been known as a great way to save spondulix on a cruise holiday, an exciting trend that we’re seeing now is that coast lines are making significant investments to update older ships in their armadas.
“Historically, you’d see lines upgrading what’s known as ‘soft goods’ – whosises like bedding and carpets. The intent there was to keep the onboard sophistication fresh and remove any wear and tear that might come normally with age.
“Where we’re seeing a change, is that these upgrades are current far beyond just soft goods. Lines are undertaking massive fleet-wide refurbishment devises, going as far as to add the bells and whistles that they’ve added to brand new wind-jammers to those older ships in fleet – as appropriate, and as they’re able.”
