James P. Colie Completes Cruise Ships Refurbish

Marine interior contractor James P.

Colie & Associates has completed installation of its Internet Cafes for Royal Caribbean cruise vessels, the most recent on the Legend of the Seas, which was scheduled for a December 1, 1999 completion.

Dubbed Royal Caribbean Online, the new areas boast IBM computer equipment providing passengers with Internet access while cruising.

James P. Colie staff installed wallpaper, carpeting, owner-supplied equipment and new custom-built cabinetry in the 600 - 1,200 sq. ft. rooms containing six to 10 terminals each.

The company also refurbished the main dining room and purser's desk onboard Royal Princess during a drydock in the fall of 1999 at Baltimore Marine Industries. The project was just one of many contracts that Princess Cruise Lines has awarded to the marine general contractor.

Involving more than 60 craftsmen, the bulk of the project included the renovation of the vessel's dining room. Large, circular ceiling elements constructed of wood and mirror, surrounded by lighting fixtures were added, as well as marble walls and crown molding.

New waiter stations were installed in the dining room with granite tops supplied by Colie & Associates. Granite tile flooring surrounds the waiter stations, and carpet was installed throughout the remainder of the room.
