The Futuristic Cruise Ship


The Futuristic Cruise Ship

A futuristic cruise ship concept design has been developed by Chantiers de l’Atlantique (France). The Jules Verne concept has opened up a new approach to the design of cruise ships by re-defining the arrangement of public spaces, providing the passengers with better access to a whole new range of on-board leisure activities. The vessel concept was on show at the ALSTOM Marine Stand during the last SEATRADE Cruise Ship Convention, held in Miami in March 2005.

Jules Verne’s trimaran hull, a combination of central monocoque hull and two ‘Swath’ type lateral outriggers, makes the ship a very stable platform ensuring more comfort for its passengers. This configuration also makes it possible to integrate additional two or three large decks. The outrigger arms act as structural reinforcement for the hull, meaning the total glazed surface area of the main superstructure can be increased, reaching ratios close to those of land-based architecture.

This opens up a multitude of various interior design possibilities with regard to size and location of public spaces, cabins, private decks, etc. The total area of public spaces is estimated at 26,000 m² and 1,700 passenger cabins will occupy approx. 34,000 m².

The vessel has four onboard marinas, giving the passengers opportunities for sea discovery excursions on small boats or submarines. All marinas are covered by glass domes creating ‘light wells’ down to the waterline. The wheelhouse is featuring panoramic views and will be partially open to visiting passengers. The bows and stern forms have been carefully studied to minimize the sea motion impact aiming to further improve onboard comfort.
