Shippax Award 2011

Outstanding Ferry Concept

For creating “a home away from home” feeling onboard, by combining several side lounges into a living-room-like area, a design that is quaintessentially Scandinavian. Think about the egg-and-ant chair by Dane Arne Jacobsen, and those colourful, obligatory Dala horses. STENA HOLLANDICA, the largest ferry in the world!
Owner: Stena Line
Yard: Nordic Yards
Design: Figura

Outstanding Ferry Concept

For pioneering unique features within a small frame, a concept worthy of much larger vessels. We, at ShipPax, have no hesitation in presenting her and her owner this award.
Owner: Wyker Dampschiffs Reederei Föhr-Amrum GmbH
Yard: J.J.Sietas
Design: Atelier 522

Outstanding Ferry Conversion

For her exceptionally high standard of conversion, a conversion standing head-and-shoulders above that of her peers. The new cabin section of this conversion, in our view, is a celebration of new lifestyle trends onboard an innovative ferry.
Owner: Stena Line
Rebuilder: Cityvarvet/Damen
Design: Figura

Outstanding RoRo Exterior

For her extraordinary, eco-friendly and aerodynamic design, a design that eliminates air resistance by almost 50 percent, reducing fuel consumption significantly, emitting 2,500 tons less CO2 per year.
Owner: Nissan Motor Car Carrier
Yard: Kyokuyo Shipyard
Design: N/A

Outstanding Cruise Concept

For incorporating outstanding features such as the spectacular waterslide, interactive art throuhout the ship and, above all, for introducing, in the inside cabins, the so-called “a window to the outside world” via virtual portholes, an excellent Meyer Werft idea.
Owner: Disney Cruise Line
Yard: Meyer Werft
Design: Disney Imagery in cooperation with Tillberg Design (accommodation) and Yran & Storbraaten (outside area)

Outstanding Cruise Concept

For successfully combining the features of an elegant boutique ship with that of an expedition vessel in a modern design, both interior and exterior. Well done, Compagnie du Ponant!
Owner: Compagnie du Ponant
Yard: Fincantieri
Design: Agence Nuel

Outstanding Cruise Cabins

We applaud NCL for being the first mass-market cruise operator to identify and acknowledge a modern lifestyle by introducing an onboard area for single cruisers, with their own small inside cabins and an exclusive adjacent lounge for socialising. A truly visionary move.
Owner: Norwegian Cruise Line
Yard: STX France
Design: Paul Priestman / Priestmangoode with Tillberg Design as coordinating architect
