Steel Cutting Ceremony

Posted in: News

The steel cutting ceremony which celebrates the official moment that production starts, has now taken place for P&O Cruises’ newest ship for which Richmond has created the designs for the interiors of all the public areas of the ship, including the passenger cabins, restaurants and entertainment areas.

This will be the first time that a British design company is responsible for the design of the whole interior. Richmond is proud to take on this responsibility, merging the classic style typical of P&O Cruises’ iconic ships with modern and innovative features that will appeal to both the current and a new generation of passengers. Richmond’s designs will produce a new standard for P&O Cruises and will go towards creating the ultimate P&O Cruises experience.

P&O Cruises managing director, Carol Marlow, said ‘Richmond’s design will make a stunning statement across the entire ship’s interiors. Through their ideas they will imbue the ship with a cohesive personality which works across all the public areas including the cabins, cafes, bars, restaurants and lounges. Richmond’s designs will add an elegant and timeless Britishness to appeal to everyone who steps on board and will facilitate an excellent evolution of the P&Oness our passengers know and love.”
