Pearl Seas Cruises Announces Complete Interior Redesign of the
Pearl Mist to Celebrate the 2023 Season

Guilford, CT— March 27, 2023—To celebrate the opening of the 2023 cruise season, Pearl Seas Cruises announces a major interior redesign of the Pearl Mist. The company has offered personalized destination-focused cruises on the Great Lakes, New England, and Canada since 2014, and has a fabulous new season of small ship cruises beginning in May. The 210-passenger Pearl Mist remains the only fully stabilized all-balcony small ship cruising the Great Lakes and the surrounding U.S. and Canadian coastal regions.

Pearl Seas Cruises commissioned Miami-based design firm, Studio DADO, for the redesign of Pearl Mist. Studio DADO is renowned throughout the industry for sophisticated, contemporary, and elegant ship interiors. The design company was recently contracted to do all the interior projects for Pearl’s affiliated company, American Cruise Lines, creating two, stunning new series of U.S. riverboats and small cruise ships. Pearl Mist’s beautiful new redesign will be revealed to guests aboard the first cruise of the season, which departs from Portland, Maine May 6th, 2023.

“We have been so pleased to work with Studio DADO again on the recreation of the Pearl Mist. The design projects they completed for our affiliated company, American Cruise Lines, have been widely acclaimed. DADO combines both modern sophistication and worldly design elements into every interior space they create. They have elevated Pearl Mist’s décor to the finest available in small ship cruising-- masterfully blending the casual elegance and comfortable luxury our guests enjoy,” said Carter Robertson, President of Pearl Seas Cruises.

From the staterooms and suites to the lounges and dining areas, the Pearl Mist has been completely made over with fresh color palettes, sumptuous textiles and linens, new furniture and carpets, and regionally inspired artwork and flourishes. Studio DADO has reimagined every space aboard the ship, incorporating themes that expertly highlight the local historical, cultural, and geographical influences characteristic to the regions Pearl Mist sails.

The beautiful new spaces DADO has envisioned for the Pearl Mist have elevated the ship, showcasing the finest interior design available in small ship cruising today. By Implementing their own signature style while retaining elements true to the pristine waterways Pearl Mist explores, Studio DADO has truly created a small ship masterpiece.
