Although not typical buildings, cruise ships have amazing architecture. The first time I went on a cruise was the Disney Magic Cruise ship, and from the first moment I stepped onto it I was amazed. It was a lot to take in, but I spent much of the first day just observing all the details that went into every aspect of its structure and design. It was amazing, and I’m sure I wasn’t even able to see everything. Disney is the master of subtle inferences (like hidden Mickeys) and gearing things to appeal to families, kids, and everyone in ways they may not consciously recognize. The lighting, size of rooms, height of ceilings, EVERYTHING was an important aspect of making guests feel welcome and at home. It also amazed me how much they were able to fit into not that large a space. Two theaters, over ten restaurants, teen and kids club, and lodging for over 2500 people and more on one ship.
