The 2021 issue of Cruise & Ferry Interiors provides exclusive insights from stakeholders across the passenger ship interior design industry.

This issue features a cover painted by Tomas Tillberg of Tomas Tillberg Design, who joins Nedgé Louis-Jacques to explain the role his company is playing in China’s burgeoning cruise ship building industry in our cover story. There is also a keynote with Trevor Young who discusses MSC Cruises’ interior design strategy and new ships.

Features explore the importance of good collaboration, the crucial role interior design plays in elevating the guest experience, and how to create long-lasting ferry interiors. Meanwhile, our Design Perspectives section offers design insights from executives such as Norwegian Cruise Line’s Mark Kansley, Carnival Cruise Line’s Chris Nelson, Tillberg Design of Sweden’s Iina Forsblom and others.

In our Interior Views section, cruise and ferry executives reflect on the design process and onboard highlights for their newest ships, including Royal Caribbean International’s Odyssey of the Seas, Seabourn’s Seabourn Venture, Baleària’s Eleanor Roosevelt, and Havila Voyages’ Havila Castor and Havila Capella. Plus, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines and Windstar Cruises provide updates on their multi-ship revitalisation projects.

Elsewhere, our CFI Curated section highlights the latest updates from across the cruise ship interiors industry, and our CFI Directory provides a comprehensive guide to some of the finest companies involved in the sector.

We close the issue with an exclusive piece authored by our Design Legend Vittorio Garroni.

There’s plenty more too – enjoy the issue!
