Solarglide ‘Deep Dive’ Into Fred Olsen Cruise Ship Interiors. Lets Take a Closer Look
Solargle onboard The Fred Olsen ‘MS Bollette’
At Solarglide, we live and breathe cruise ship interiors and it’s exciting when we see some amazing interiors when we are out and about in the field. Modern interiors on board cruise liners, ferries and yachts are really starting to push the boundaries of modern design and they rival land-based hotels for their exceptional quality and charm. Onboard the Fred Olsen Ms Bollette did not disappoint !
Interior designers working within the maritime industry realise that people want to be pampered and feel comfortable when navigating the oceans. Gone are the days of seeing neglected spaces and unimaginative customer experiences, in the modern world, cruise companies need to stand out from the crowd. As the passenger ship market expands rapidly, ships must appeal to a wide age demographic to draw back existing customers and entice new ones onboard. Finding a balance can be a challenge because as humans we all have such different tastes.
Luxury Cruise Interiors with An Eclectic Touch
Unique passenger ship interiors can impact a passenger’s experience significantly and a great interior can act as a magnet for passengers during long sea days or when relaxing on an evening. Whether it’s a calming atmosphere, a particular colour scheme that appeals or the furniture and dressings, all factors play an important role in how passengers share their experience with family and friends after the voyage has concluded.
Other things to consider are current interior design trends – do the spaces appeal to the modern client? Does the design idea suit the age demographic that the ship is targeted at? Do the cabins match the design of the public spaces or is there a design imbalance? All these things are important.
Contemporary Marine Interiors With Traditional Themes
Solarglide recently visited the Fred Olsen Cruise ship ‘MS Bolette’ (formerly MS Amsterdam). In this blog we share and showcase some of the amazing interiors that were experienced onboard. The one thing we loved about the interior spaces onboard were how different they were to each other; each individual space was extremely well thought out by the designers. A great deal of thought had been put into the colours, materials, and the furniture – we were very impressed considering its an old vessel built back in the year 2000. The public spaces, whilst traditional in parts, were very modern and offered a nice peaceful experience for all onboard.
Deck 5 showcased the main lounges, and the interiors here did not disappoint. This included the piano room, the bookmark café, and the oriental tea rooms. All these spaces were very different in styles, but all worked together surprising well when travelling by foot between them.
