Dazzle cruisers with unforgettable experiences.

Design a Modern Masterpiece

With the bar set by bold visions at brands like Virgin Voyages and Celebrity, cruise lines are hungry to stand out – and nothing is off limits. Mirroring greater hospitality trends, interiors are becoming more specialized, spacious and connected to the sea than ever before.

Design Ambassador

The daughter of a UN diplomat, Ayesha had been around the world before she knew how to walk. This spawned a lifetime of wanderlust and parallel careers as an interior architect for the hospitality field and travel writer for the likes of Starboard, Condé Nast Traveler and Architectural Digest.

Having contributed to the design of 10 cruise ships and counting for clients as diverse as Costa, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Disney Cruise Line, Ayesha counts maritime design as her greatest expertise.

On any given day you will either find her traveling to the world’s shipyards for Jeffrey Beers International (JBI), or touring and writing about the world’s hottest new maritime wonders.

A show designed with you in mind.
