Cruise ship solutions: first impressions matter

For the passengers on a cruise, the experience is more important than the destination. So once they step on board, they expect everything to be perfect, from the first impression to the last look back as they disembark and head for home. KONE elevators and escalators are an important part of the passengers' memorable experiences.
