Southern Contracts embark on a Spirit Of Discovery

WITH the first cruise ship leaving Southampton yesterday since lockdown last year, galley and laundry fit out specialists, Southern Contracts announce they are appointed by Saga Cruises to carry out a full service of their appliances aboard one of their newest additions to their fleet, in anticipation of their imminent cruise relaunch.

The Spirit of Discovery prides itself on providing the design, cuisine and levels of service one would expect in the world’s finest boutique hotels. She is the sister ship to The Spirit of Adventure, which are the only small ships built for the British market, offering a balcony for every guest and a choice of speciality restaurants.

Southern Contracts are one of the UK’s leading suppliers of industrial laundry equipment, catering and commercial cleaning equipment for offshore and marine, as well as onshore businesses such as care homes, holiday parks and schools.
Due to the laying up of all cruise ships over the past year, Southern Contracts were approached by Saga Cruises to carry out a full survey and service of their galley equipment to include ovens, refrigeration and all laundry equipment prior to them recommencing their long awaited cruises.
Adam Elphinstone, Managing Director of Southern Contracts said: “We have a very well established relationship with Saga going back many years, and were delighted when they approached us to carry out the servicing onboard their brand new ship The Spirit of Discovery.

Our dedicated team have just completed a comprehensive service of all the equipment to ensure the safety of the crew and passengers when they are able to finally set sail again.”
“We pride ourselves on delivering the very best products and service to our customers by stocking the leading products of commercial washing machines and industrial tumble dryers, cleaning and catering equipment” he added.
