This week our volunteers completed the reconstruction of the baldachin above the bar in the Tropic Bar. The original baldachin was scrapped during the refurbishment in 2007. Although the original drawings of architect Carel Wirtz were available, it was not easy to rebuild the baldachin, due to a sloping wall and sloping corners. But the volunteers succeeded in the reconstruction. They had a drink with the management of the ship.
