Attendees from across the entire cruise interiors supply chain including Virgin Voyages, AROS Marine, MSC Cruises, Royal Caribbean Cruises, YSA Design, Hurtigruten, Studio DADO, and OBERFLEX gathered to raise a glass and celebrate industry excellence.
The excitement and champagne bubbled as Toby Walters, CEO of the CSI Awards and CSI Design Expo Europe, took to the stage to open the ceremony and announce the first winners.
This year, 13 awards were up for grabs. The awards themselves were crafted by Spared by Volume Creative. The material of the trophies was created using waste, transforming unwanted items into a beautiful and unique new design. New to 2023, CSI introduced two awards within the Spaces category that reflect the industry’s growing passion for improving onboard crew experience and reducing industry emissions. The first of these, Best Crew Area was awarded to the crew area on board A-ROSA Cruises’ A-ROSA SENA, designed by JOI-Design. Tui Cruises and P-O-I Design took home the Most Sustainable Interior award for Grööne Bar on board Mein Schiff 3. Princess Cruises won Best Casual Dining for O’Malley’s Irish Pub on board Enchanted Princess, while the Horizon Deluxe Stateroom on board Mystic Cruises’ World Traveller, designed by Oitoemponto, was crowned Best Stateroom.
Within the Products category, NIT Naval Interior Team won the Sustainability Award for its cutting-edge Carbon Footprint Calculation for Ship Interiors tool. This calculates the environmental impact of marine interiors, enabling NIT to identify and improve factors with the highest carbon footprint.
As the awards ceremony came to a close, Toby Walters made a special announcement. After four years of providing support, guidance, and leadership as head of the CSI Advisory Board George Scammell, ASID, IIDA, Director Interior Asset Management at Princess Cruises would be handing his title to My Nguyen, Director of Interior Design at Holland America Group. This was commemorated with the presentation of the CSI Advisory Board gavel.
