The all-suite Clelia II recently left the Mediterranean, after a period of extensive renovations. She is now crossing the Atlantic on her way to the Great Lakes for the summer.
In addition to the tasteful redecoration and refurbishment of all public rooms and suites, visible in these photographs, a number of works took place that are less obvious but equally significant. These include the ice-strengthening of the hull in preparation for the ship’s operations in Antarctica and the Arctic, and full compliance with the stringent regulations of the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Public Health authorities.
The U.S. standards are far more demanding than those of SOLAS and result in a vessel that meets the latest requirements for environmental impact, safety at sea, and health standards. Virtually every system aboard ship was overhauled and upgraded – galley equipment, food storage areas, garbage management, water and fuel tanks, air conditioning, etc. The modifications to the engines now make it possible now to burn cleaner, very low-sulfur fuel.
Among the guest amenities aboard the 50-suite Clelia II are the gracious dining room with a single unassigned seating, two lounges, an expansive library with Internet access, gym, beauty salon, boutique, Jacuzzi, infirmary, and ample deck areas for relaxing and sunbathing. An elevator serves all decks.
We look forward to welcoming Clelia II to American shores and the Great Lakes.
