Any new ship that is built is always the outcome of a long experience and an attentive study of what has been done in the past. The global shipbuilding of passenger cruise ships has made great strides and today is one of the most advanced, thanks to the know-how and technological experience gained and passed down over time.
There is an element, however, that is not found in the shipyard analysis and that during construction of the ship you cannot observe, and that is the feedback from the people that will experience the ship by sailing on a cruise. Months after its construction, even the most excellent ship will demonstrate some management issues, small space calculation errors, inconvenience of some equipment, and have areas of the ship that are not well-liked by crew and/or passengers.
Effectiveness analysis and feedback
Only a passenger or member of the crew, and not an architect or engineer, can identify in a practical way an inconvenience on board: whether it is a badly designed space, an impractical drawer or an ineffective piece of equipment.
For years Cruising Journal has been analyzing, collecting and archiving passenger and crew member feedback creating a precious database of reports, advice, things that are appreciated as well as disappointments. This constitutes the base of our support services in the design of cruise ships, already utilized by many companies and in continual evolution.
We strongly believe that only the synergy between technical design and consultancy regarding the actual needs and expectations of the cruise public can lead to new ships that, in addition to representing the highest expression of cutting-edge technology, always have the well-being of passengers and crew members at the forefront.
Design assistance, with specialized reports on the needs of passengers and crew members.
Build to “wow”, without disappointing
An always increasing number of flagships today tend to aim to “wow” their clients with technology and surprising novelties. It is important, however, to always keep in mind the overall needs of those same passengers, through the acquisition of information on the implementation of those innovations in previous constructions, on expectations and on any disappointing elements.
Cruising Journal intervenes with a group of experts with various backgrounds (shipbuilders, journalists, travel agents, long-time cruise passengers) and with a large database from which to obtain information that can assist and support the construction of new ships.
