New issue of Cruise & Ferry Interiors out now!

By Rebecca Gibson |

The 2023 issue of Cruise & Ferry Interiors is out now, offering exclusive insights from across the passenger ship interior design industry. Subscribe to view the digital edition or order a printed copy. 

An article by McKinsey & Company ahead of the latest United Nations Climate Change Conference addressed the ‘devilish duality’ of how CEOs can square resilience with the net zero promise. Passenger shipping businesses were hit particularly hard by the pandemic, so leaders may have been tempted to park sustainability initiatives as they focused on building resilience during their road to recovery. However, many of the executives featured in our 2023 issue of Cruise & Ferry Interiors articles indicate that sustainability has continued to be a top priority.

Sustainability features prominently throughout this issue, for example, our lead feature introduces a new Sustainable Maritime Interiors Declaration and initiative that provides a pathway to greener passenger ship interiors. The declaration was launched on 30 May and will be discussed at Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Americas in Miami, Florida, on 6 June. We hope you will visit to register your support.

The cover of this issue also reflects the industry’s commitment to protecting the oceans and the marine ecosystem. The image was inspired by the ‘Save the Sea’ fresco created by German graphic artist Alex Flämig for the hull of MSC Cruises’ latest pioneering ship, MSC Euribia. In the cover story, MSC Cruises’ Trevor Young and Daniel Mocreia give an insight into the brand’s ship design process and why MSC Euribia represents its commitment to protecting the environment.

Meanwhile, in our keynote, Explora Journeys’ Michael Ungerer explains the pivotal role interior design and sustainability has played in helping the brand to deliver a luxurious guest experience on its first ship, Explora I. 

Elsewhere in the magazine, we celebrate the highlights of the more than 30-year career of our latest Design Legend, De Jorio Luxury & Yacht’s Marco de Jorio. Plus, we profile eight new vessels in our Interior Views articles, share design insights from experts in our Design Perspectives section and showcase revitalisation projects.

We also hear from designers, outfitters and the supplier community via interior commentaries and interviews, report on the latest industry updates in CFI Curated, and profile some of the finest companies involved in the passenger ship interiors sector in the CFI Featured Partners section.

We hope you enjoy the issue – happy reading!
