This ‘Bon Voyage’ cruise ship personalised coffin was inspired by a lover of Ocean Liners and cruising.
A cruise ship is a luxury vessel that is used to take passengers on a pleasure voyage in a journey that is as much a part of the experience as the various destinations on the way. In contrast to an ocean liner that transports passengers from one point on the globe to the other often across the oceans, a cruise ship or a cruise liner as it is known by most, takes the people on board to a round trip that is of varied duration, from a single day to possibly a week and culminates at the originating port.
This is a very refreshing mode of enjoyment and recreation, which relaxes the mind and replenishes energies to a great extent.
The present day form of cruising can be traced back to the beginning of the twentieth century when the transoceanic traveling was at its zenith. The only mode of transport was the ships so the different companies that were in this business offered the best services to compete in the market. These ocean liners with luxurious services offered what came to be known as line voyages.
But because of the long journey, which at best would be no less than four days, there had to be huge storage for fuel and other necessities and that didn’t leave much room for luxuries. With the advent of jet airplanes in the latter half of the last century, there was a shift in passenger preference and the long sea voyages were left for only the ardent sea fans.
