After months of planning things and a delayed start we finally have a build date for our next Ice Bar & Lounge project with Norwegian Cruise Line. This time we will be working on the Norwegian Getaway whose theme is Miami.
The boys went over to the boatyard in Meyer Werft, Papenberg in Germany at the beginning of October to take the exact measurements of the room so that they can start preparing the ice and to ensure that the walls of the room set behind the ice walls will be painted in white. Then it was back to London to make all the necessary arrangements.
Over the next few weeks all the sculptures and the bar will be cut and carved here in the UK for shipping to Bremen in December. Then it will be two weeks hard graft in order to complete it in time for its first sailing debut in January 2014.
Time is quite short as we are entering our busiest period of the year but I’m sure they will all do a terrific job as always. It probably means I won’t see too much of my husband, Percy between now and Christmas but in this business that’s perfectly normal!
