As the cruise industry’s most significant worldwide event, Seatrade Cruise Global unites over 13,000 professionals linked by an unbreakable esprit de corps—unique among a community that always feels at home on the sea. It’s a place to connect with passionate contemporaries all looking to increase their ingenuity, discover the latest trends, and secure profitable partnerships.
The cruise business is undergoing some transformational shifts. At one end of the scale is the latest generation of giant vessels, each the size of a small town, with a set of unique challenges not seen in other sectors of shipping. Meanwhile, the fast-developing expedition cruise business is also on a roll. These small, niche vessels come with their own set of challenges, operating in remote regions where emergency support is limited, and vessel safety and system reliability are absolutely paramount.
With the cruise orderbook continuing to grow, leading classification societies are competing to make the most of a sector that has defied the contracting downturn suffered recently by most other shipping markets.
LR also offers support functions that include third-party advisory services for cruise lines themselves, designers, builders, ports and original equipment manufacturers. LR is often number one in cruise ship classification and a pioneer of new technologies in the business, tackling a diverse range of projects.
