Grimaldi Group Officially Presented The ‘Extended’ CRUISE ROMA
Grimaldi Group officially presented the renovated and lengthened ferry CRUISE ROMA in the port of Barcelona. She re-entered service on the Civitavecchia – Porto Torres – Barcelona route after completing a lengthening work at the Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo.
A new 29m section including 600 additional freight lane meters, together with 80 sleeping accommodations in new passenger cabins and two new public spaces was inserted at the centre of the 2007-built vessel.
A message saying “Zero emission in port” is now visible on both the sides of the vessel since the CRUISE ROMA was also fitted with a scrubber system, as well as a system to power the ship during the turnaround time in ports based on mega-lithium batteries.
The same works are to be done also for the sister ship CRUISE BARCELONA, which is currently dry docked at Fincantieri Palermo’s site.
