Floating Works of Cruise Ship Art are Big Hits on Social Media

Cruise ship art on Norwegian Cruise Line

People love posting vacation photos on Instagram and Twitter, but, thanks to a relatively new trend in the cruise industry, more and more people are posting pictures of themselves posing in front of their cruise ships.

But these aren’t just cruise ships. These are floating works of art.

Norwegian Cruise Line revolutionized the concept of “cruise ship art” in 2013 when they hired famed Pop artist Peter Max to paint the hull of Norwegian Breakaway.

Since then, many ships in the Norwegian fleet have had their exterior artwork designed by some of the most famous artists in the world—artists like Guy Harvey, Lebo, and Wyland—and travel fans LOVE IT. The colossal hull art isn’t just beautiful. It also makes the perfect backdrop for gorgeous vacation selfies.

Here’s a small selection we collected from the huge number of fantastic vacation photos currently on Instagram, highlighting the unforgettable artwork on four of Norwegian’s most popular cruise ships.
