High Design Cruises

by Colleen Clark

For far too long, cruise lines chugged along with onboard interiors that were either depressingly bland or eye-gougingly garish. Thankfully, there's been a sea change in cruise ship style, and design-minded travelers no longer need to swallow their taste and concentrate on the view. Plucky boutique lines have led the way with eco-friendly initiatives, luxe textiles, and sophisticated decor. Larger lines are now getting on board, replacing crayon color schemes with more subtle palettes and calling in the big design guns, such as Ralph Lauren, to bring high class to the high seas. Say ahoy to the new fleet of design cruises.
