The sophisticated ships designed by ULSTEIN has cruised the seas of the world for decades, enduring all conditions. Our cruise vessels are based on our experience from the harshest of climates. The combination of classy ship lines and the overall luxury results in a vessel for unforgettable adventures.
ULSTEIN has developed cutting edge cruise ship designs of several sizes, ranging from small vessels with accommodation for approximately 100 or more passengers, to large vessels that can accommodate 800 passengers or more. More than just power and performance, an ULSTEIN designed cruise vessel is a piece of art.
Robust to endure
With our background of designing robust, offshore-tough vessels, our high-performance cruise ships have been developed to withstand the inhospitable conditions of sea areas such as the North Sea and the Polar regions. Our solid, reliable platforms secure a safe and comfortable journey, for the passengers to fully enjoy their holiday of fun. The exceptional seakeeping and high operational reliability add extra value to our vessels. All our vessels comply with international class regulations and rules.
Customer experience is crucial
The cruise ship layout has been designed in order to make a memorable journey and a unique experience. We cooperate with renowned cruise interior designers, and our cruise vessels come with a blend of rich, sporty and luxurious interior. Naturally, all passengers have ocean-view cabins and suites, and most have balconies to get even closer to the natural experience. The ships offer facilities for entertainment and fine dining, exercise and adventure, wildlife and underwater spottings, recreation and relaxation. The details of our cruise ship designs are elaborated in close cooperation with established cruise ship interior architects, all adjusted to the owner’s requirements. Much effort has been placed in securing the best on-board logistics in all aspects. Our close cooperation with the owner is supported by our analyses of flow logistics as well as field trips.
ULSTEIN’s core mission is sustainability. Cruise journeys should lead to minimum effects on the natural climates during transit or at the destinations. We take into consideration the whole life-cycle of the vessel, contemplating alternative materials, fuel-efficient propulsion systems and engines, low energy consumption with minimised emissions, alternative power sources and efficient hull forms. The overall expedition logistics is also carefully considered.
