In cruise design, outdoor spaces are becoming just as important as interiors. As passengers head outside to enjoy the views, soak in the sun’s rays, or lounge by the pool, cruise lines must provide outdoor furniture that is stylish, comfortable and practical. As a result, outdoor fabrics used in these furnishings face a unique challenge. They must be able to withstand exposure to sea air, UV rays from the sun, chlorine from swimming pools, cleaning chemicals, frequent passenger use and more. This needs to be paired with the ability to provide comfort as well as a sleek design.

However, as passengers are increasingly eco-aware, sustainability is becoming a driving factor in their decision-making. Therefore, it is now vital for cruise lines to show passengers that they are making the most sustainable choices.

Reducing your carbon footprint through good design is easier than you think. Check out Four Things That May Surprise You About Sustainable Design.
