The MAKINEN team partnered with Compagnie Française de Croisières to transform the interiors of CFC Renaissance, the former Holland America Line Maasdam. Acquired by the cruise line in August 2022, the vessel overwent a multi-million-euro renovation at the Damen Brest shipyard before debuting later in 2023.
In January 2023, the MAKINEN team dedicated themselves to refurbishing a total of 628 passenger cabins and staterooms, in addition to 17 public spaces. The areas were upgraded to ensure a higher standard of comfort and elegance.
