The way passengers use space has changed over time. When re-configuring older vessels to extend their lifespan, it becomes important to develop some multipurpose public spaces to get maximum use out of the real estate.

This session looked at:

  • What are the considerations for changing the function of a space?
  • What kind of venues are popular?
  • Designing spaces for multiple purposes: where are the opportunities?
  • Understanding the complexities around the addition of balconies to older ships
  • Maximising the impact of outdoor decks – enhancing the outdoors experience
  • Getting the most from the technical upgrade – energy savings, increasing life-saving capacity
