Cruise & Ferry Interiors 2022

5 1 Retail area – Aura and Luna Seaways DFDS Seaways’ newest ferries, Aura Seaways and Luna Seaways, are now operating on routes in Sweden, having been launched in January and April 2022 respectively. The ro-pax ferries were built by COMEC Guangzhou Shipyard in China. Both sister ships feature well-lit retail areas, where the contemporary design has created spacious areas that allow passengers to browse freely and shop conveniently. In the shops, DFDS sells a variety of cosmetic products, including perfumes, make up and other travel necessities. According to Iveta Žutautien˙e, travel retail category manager at DFDS, local and international produce such as spirits will also be available. Promenade – MSC World Europa MSC Cruises' MSC World Europa, which will launch in December 2022, showcases a promenade that will be the highlight of the ship at 104 metres long, six decks high and with a ceiling that is half open to the sky and half covered with an LED screen that will show different images throughout the day. At the core of the promenade is The Venom Drop @ Spiral, a dry slide that spans 11 decks and is incorporated into the architectural design of the area. Lighting, windows and the variety of venues throughout the promenade will contribute towards an energetic atmosphere where restaurants and bars are just a walk away from one another.

American Symphony will join American Melody, American Jazz, American Heritage and American Splendor in August 2022, operating on the Mississippi River in the USA. The ship’s Grand Suite will offers panoramic views through floor-to-ceiling glass windows and feature a separate bedroom and living area. Created by Studio DADO, the space will offer an elegant and refined aesthetic, with a colour palette and architectural design that pays homage to the line’s American origins. This, combined with Scandinavian-style furniture, will create an overall atmosphere of relaxation. Photo: American Cruise Lines
