The ability to adapt in the Marine Industry to frequently changing environments is one of the reasons customers choose to partner with ALMACO. Whether it’s inclement weather conditions or or today’s challenging and unprecedented environment, these obstacles did not alter the level of professionalism from employees or diminish quality of the final product.    ​

The Carnival Elation work scope consisted of 30 full turnkey outfitted staterooms located on deck 9 during a drydock at the Grand Bahamas on March 2-31, 2020 as a part of Carnival Cruise Line’s “Fun Ship 2.0 Ship Enhancement Program.” During the 29-day refurbishment the ALMACO crew endured several challenges including 25+ knot winds in bringing materials onboard, issues with receiving materials from vendors due to air freight restrictions associated with COVID-19 rules and limited airline flights for employees to return home.

ALMACO Project Manager, Tommi Virta and the team of 125 individuals worked extremely hard to overcome every obstacle.  The team was able to complete the project on time and the customer was extremely pleased with the quality of work considering the circumstances.  The last phase was getting the workers home and Carnival stepped up to provide rooms, meals and assisted with return flights.​

Thanks to our Global supplier Network and Project Management team we were able to supply this complex turnkey project and reinforce our relationship with Carnival Cruise Line’s appreciation of ALMACO’s commitment to excellence.
