The new issue of Ship Technology Global is out now!

Three years on from the worldwide lockdown, the cruise sector, is continuing its recovery from the pandemic. Royal Caribbean’s new ship, the Icon of the Seas, is a physical embodiment of this bounce back – being the largest cruise ship in the world. In this issue, we profile the new vessel.

Whether you are on a desktop, tablet or smartphone, you can read the magazine for free online.

Elsewhere in the cruise sector, we also hear from a host of industry experts as they highlight the key industry themes that will define cruising in 2023, as well as looking at how a new set of challenges – namely a cost of living crisis – is impacting the luxury cruise market.

We also take a critical look at the UK’s National Shipbuilding Strategy, launched in 2017 as an attempt to revitalise a flagging industry in Great Britain. Recent statements from UK officials have highlighted the difficulties in building up the workforce required for the strategy. We dive into the matter.

As well as all of this, we speak to I-Tech about the importance of anti-fouling solutions in the maritime sector, look at three of the best hub locations to set up a logistics business, and highlight the ten most expensive maritime construction projects to break ground over the last year.

For all of this and more, read on. And don’t forget to stay up to date with everything at @ShipTechMag and @FutureCruiseMag.
