While many refurbishment projects are smaller in scope than originally intended, delayed projects are continuing to be rescheduled. Conversation topics have changed since the restart – material availability, logistical challenges and sustainability performance increasingly dominate industry designer-yard-supplier discussions. Availability and logistical issues will be resolved in time, but sustainability will soon sit alongside two other mainstays of the industry. “Our highest responsibility and top priorities are to operate safely, protect the environment, and comply with regulatory requirements,” says Carnival Cruise Line’s Ben Clement in his Design Perspective on page 100. “Sustainability is not just a commitment, but a mindset that influences our daily decisions in everything we do from operations to interior design,” says My Nguyen in our sustainability feature on page 38. Nguyen and over 180 other experts have contributed to our Sustainable Maritime Interiors report which is also published this month. Sustainability is the theme of our front cover, which was created by Steen Friis Design. We ask the firm how it uses life cycle analysis to develop data-driven design strategies and deliver more sustainable ships in our cover story on page 34. Our keynote on page 12 explores how Viking’s interior design strategies have evolved and ensured its success in three cruise segments over the past 25 years. Other highlights include our Interior Views showcasing nine new ships starting on page 58, our interview with Ponant on page 94, and our Design Legend interview with SMC Design’s Andy Yuill on page 148. And there’s so much more – happy reading! Jon Ingleton Executive Editor, Cruise & Ferry Interiors
