The planned technical works will include, in addition to regular maintenance activities, the replacement of the ship’s two reduction gears.
The retrofit of the ship’s facilities will include converting the old Buffet Silja Line into a Grande Buffet, to follow the same concept already in use on other Silja Line cruise ships; converting the old Cafeteria to a Fastlane restaurant, following the same concept as the Fastlane on the Megastar; refreshing the ship’s Fashion Street shopping area and enhancing the Silja Land children’s play area to include many new features as well as occupying a bigger space in a new location on deck 5.
MSC certified fisheries are continually monitored and must complete annual surveillance audits as well as being reassessed every five years.
More than 1,200 improvements to fishing practices and environmental management have been delivered by MSC certified fisheries since 2000.
About 160 tonnes of shrimp and 22 tonnes of herring are served on their cruise ships and this certification ensures that customers onboard these ships can enjoy seafood in restaurants that has come from a sustainable fishery and can be traced from ocean to plate.
“Tallink Silja strives to source sustainably and to guide its customers towards making the right choices,” explains Marika Nöjd, Communications Director at Tallink Silja.
The Tallink Group is one of the largest maritime carriers of passengers and cargo in the Baltic Sea region and this MSC certification demonstrates their commitment to sustainability and support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), particularly SDG 14, which calls to conserve and sustainably use the oceans.
