International Hospitality Industry Making Waves in Cruise Ship Interior Design

By ,   July 31, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

The international hospitality industry is making waves in the development of interior cruise ship design. Passenger shipping companies now realize the importance of implementing an innovative, show-stopping design in making their own brand stand out from the rest. Among the most intriguing challenges is how to bring the seascape into staterooms.

P&O Cruises UK have been pioneering in their latest approach to meeting the challenge as their newest liner (currently under construction) - MS Iona (to be launched in 2020) boasting "conservatory mini-suites". The innovation allows staterooms to extend out onto the balcony, thus bringing the seaviews into the cabin.

Seabourn have fully embraced how a quality design will impact their guests. They utilized over 1000+ handmade Venetian glass chandelier bowls, 14 different sofa fabrics, as well as 1600 pieces of art from 120 international artists, curated by ArtLink.
