Welcome to the June CSI+ Community Round-up!

Wow, it has been a month since we were in Miami at Cruise Ship Interiors Expo America…

Firstly, I just want to say a HUGE thank you to our amazing members Dauerflora, Chelsom Lighting, Bourne Group, Forbo Flooring, JANUS et Cie, Gervasoni and We Are Light that supplied products for the CSI+ Lounge designed by YSA Design.

I think we can all agree that it was a beautiful space!

Studio DADO

Studio DADO joined us at Cruise Ship Interiors Expo America last month, and they brought with them some delicious DADO Gelato. Truth be told, the frozen treats facilitated a lot of great conversations with people from across the industry.

Why not take a look at their five big takeaways from the show…

Waterbury Bathroom Accessories 

ADA compliance is a top priority for cruise lines at the moment, so much so our next Community Networking Hour is dedicated to it.

One CSI+ Member already offering ADA compliant bathroom accessories is Waterbury. Waterbury offer a range of ADA compliant grab rails that are not only functional but also match with beautiful design schemes.

Ship interior refurbishments must run as smoothly, efficiently, and transparently as possible. That’s why MAKINEN has instituted the MAKINEN Way, which fully optimizes the use and purpose of every area, resource, and function: everything from financials, streamlined material selection & sourcing to warehousing, logistics, and the constant quality control.

Disney Cruise Line

Disney Cruise Line officially christened its fifth ship, Disney Wish. The magical ceremony even featured appearances from beloved characters from Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar.

If you haven’t yet taken a look at the beautiful interiors onboard Wish, you really should as it is something quite special!
