Abstract: As a place for tourists to communicate and interact, the public space of large cruise ships has become an important aspect of the design and construction of large cruise ships due to its dense functional units and core spatial location. In response to the lack of experience and spatial vitality in the public space of large cruise ships, this study attempts to apply dramaturgical theory and take the theatre, the physical space that carries the core of dramatic meaning, as the origin of the analogy. From the perspective of the dramatization of large cruise ship public spaces, “theatricalization” is introduced into the design of large cruise ship public spaces for exploration, returning to the meaning and emotional value of large cruise ship public spaces and attracting tourists to revisit them. Based on the core characteristics of the “theatricalization” of large cruise ship public spaces - theatricality, presence and spectacle, combined with theatrical narrative performance and scene construction, the design methods of large cruise ship public spaces are summarised and analysed in depth, actively building large cruise ship public spaces that interact with tourists. The study breaks through disciplinary limitations and forms a heterogeneous dimension for observing and understanding large cruise ship public spaces.
