Default Re: Re: dry dock

A ship is dry docked or taken out of the water mainly to make repairs, paint, upgrades or to clean up those portions of the ship that is always underwater. this is a very common practice with ships and I would think that the cruise lines would use this dry docked period to reburbish the interior and exterior of teh ship as well.
