After almost two years of actual construction, Marina is trotting into the home stretch. Being our first new, custom built ship, I am amazed at how much of a difference each and every day makes in her appearance. After so many months of seemingly never changing bare steel, Marina looks new and different every day.

Here are a few updates from the shipyard today

Here is the Grand Dining Room chandelier, it was lit for the very first time today. The wall sconces have also been installed and they have laid the luxurious carpet.

The carpet throughout the ship is really very special and I will share the details on that in an upcoming post.

Here is Martinis. They have taken the protective covering off of all the paneling and bar and if you look closely, you can see they have hung the first set of sheers in the windows.

I am certain we will have more and more to share with each passing week!
