Item description for Cruising Architecture by Images Publishing Group...
As cruise ships become increasingly popular, the facilites and experiences they provide must also become more sophisticated. Today, cruise ships are much more than an important mode of transport. They offer the promise of adventure, luxury, relaxation and escape. Cruise ship clientele have come to expect the very best from these maritime 'hotels', which include cavernous shopping malls, top-class entertainment facilities and luxury dining and accomodation. Alternatively, for a truly exclusive property, it is even possible to purchase your very own apartment on board a cruise ship. Such vessels provide a fascinating challenge for their architects, who must work within stringent safety parameters, in conjunction with highly refined maritime engineering principles. In this new volume, Michael J Crosbie examines some of the very best architectural achievements on board these 'giants of the sea', presenting some extraordinary and inspirational work.
