How are guest preferences and expectations evolving as the industry returns to service? Have these changed on a deeper level? What are the most important factors for frictionless service design which is delivered in line with brand values?
How do we interpret emerging guest behaviours to design better interiors? Featuring perspectives from the airline industry, alternative travel, theme parks and cruise – our expert panel examines the challenges of designing spaces which create ambience, a sense of safety, whilst retaining enjoyment factor that passengers expect from their vacation.
This session debates how the cruise industry can as a whole start to mandate sustainable practices and processes across suppliers, shipyards, cruise lines, outfitters and contractors. And it asks – what do you prioritize when there are so many aspects to consider within sustainability? From environmental impacts to circularity, waste reduction to social equity?
Creating a safe and healthy environment on board is critical for confidence and for the guest experience. This session looks at the possibility of creating uniformity in health and hygiene across the cruise brands and across different geographical areas.
