Blohm + Voss Awarded $3.4-Million Contract To Renovate Cruise Ship

The Hamburg yard of Blohm + Voss in West Germany has received an order from Sundance Cruises of Seattle valued at some $3.4 million for renovations to the 26,747-grt liner Scandinavia. Sundance, a consortium of the MacDonald Corporation of Seattle, Johnson Line of Stockholm, and Effoa Finland Steamship Company of Helsinki, bought the cruise vessel from DFDS Line of Denmark last November. To be renamed Stardancer, the Scandinavia was completed in 1982 by the Dubigeon Normandie yard in Nantes, France.

The liner is due to arrive at the Blohm + Voss yard on April 10 this year, with redelivery scheduled for "the 28th of that month. B + V is understood to have been the low bidder for the conversion job, but the deciding factor may have been the fact that the Hamburg yard had the available berth to meet the very tight schedule.
