Cruise & Ferry Interiors 2022

1 1 9 provides passengers with uninterrupted views. Designed to feel like an English park in summer, the space features a pool, two whirlpools, sun loungers and dining areas. And AIDAcosma is altogether different again. “Here we created 17 different restaurants and 23 bars,” says Seidenfaden. “But the real star of the show is the Theatrium. Unlike many other cruise ships, AIDAcosma doesn’t feature a dedicated theatre. Instead, we implemented the popular Theatrium concept which we developed with AIDA Cruises for its Sphinx-class ships on AIDAcosma and her sister AIDAnova.” Another company favourite is Hanse Explorer, which Partner Ship Design transformed from a training vessel to an exploration yacht. “Before we started working on the ship, it was used for training seamen,” says Seidenfaden. “The owner asked us to turn the upper deck – which had been a technical area – into a public space. We made some technical modifications and also added a whirlpool, two cabanas and a seating area. This area contributes to the new look and feel of the ship.” Seidenfaden recalls the joy of incorporating nature into the redesign of Hanse Explorer. “We achieved a 360-degree view of the surroundings from the open deck, and this was echoed throughout the ship by incorporating larger windows. The connection between inside and outside is very important, especially on an expedition cruise ship. The German design studio created 17 different restaurants and 23 bars on AIDAcosma Partner Ship Design created several family-friendly areas for Carnival Cruise Line’s Mardi Gras, including the BOLT roller coaster
