The benefits of livecookintable® onboard ships
Livecookintable® can been seen across multiple cruise lines and ships, be it sea or river cruises. The cruising industry has quickly seen the benefits of livecookintable® onboard ships after the launch of the Baukasten.
The cruise industry is one of the most important growth sectors in the tourism market. Over the past few years, the cruise market has seen an enormous growth in passenger numbers, while an increasing number of new cruise destinations are emerging. This growth has given rise to a demand for very large cruise ships as well as luxury exploration and adventure vessels.
As per the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), in 2020, worldwide passenger volume decreased by 80.0%. Due to the pandemic, the majority of the cruises were stranded at various locations and other cruises were cancelled. Between mid-March and September 2020, it is estimated that the suspension of cruise operations has resulted in a loss of more than $US 77 B in global economic activity, 518,000 jobs, and $US 23 B in wages.
However, the industry is anticipated to witness a slow and healthy growth rate owing to the resumed activities and relaxed restrictions.
The global cruise market size was valued at $US 7.25 B in 2021 and is expected to grow to $US 15.10 B from 2022 to 2028. This can be attributed to the rising popularity of the vacation on a cruise due to the cost difference and the amenities provided by the alternative vacations. Cruise vacations are more affordable compared to alternative land-based vacations, which include transport, meals, accommodation, and entertainment. According to the Cruise Lines International Association, 58% of international vacationers are first-time cruisers, who are likely to cruise in the next few years.
Livecookintable® can been seen across multiple cruise lines and ships, be it sea or river cruises. The cruising industry has quickly seen the benefits of livecookintable® onboard ships after the launch of the Baukasten. The long-standing relationships and return clients with multiple ships support this. Rolling out an entire fleet with the same setup or extending it is possible with the Baukasten, as this is at the core of the concept.
Companies like Seaking, Silversea Cruises, Viking Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line rely on the highest-grade stainless steel used in the tables on many of their ships. Additionally, outdoor material makes the tables seaworthy and adds to the durability when using the tables outside permanently.
Moreover, flexibility and varying entertainment on a cruise ship are important aspects for operations and their choice of equipment. While one day the guest may dine on deck, the next day they will have a gala dinner in the ballroom with live cooking. This is possible with the Baukasten and its easily interchangeable components and multiple appliances.
As the cruising industry is growing, so is the demand for flexible F&B solutions, and livecookintable® is successfully supplying the solution. With multiple ships launched in the last few years, more under construction, we are proud to work in providing unique experiences to guest exploring our blue planet.
