The anatomy of a cruise ship (report)

  1. 1.  Primarily used for transatlantic crossings or world voyages.  Mostly built before 1970
  2. 2.  They’re sleek, streamlined and built to knife their way through open oceans.  Most are rather small by today’s cruise standards, but several vintage liners are as big as some of the larger contemporary ships.
  3. 3.  Tapered, knife-like hulls gave way to broader, boxier, still attractive vessels .  Built to accommodate uniformly sized staterooms and the numerous activity venues that the modern cruise vacation experience requires.
  4. 4.  It is generally called these giant-sized ships, megaships.  They can accommodated 2,000 passengers or more and have 12 or more decks.
  5. 5.  Most of which accommodate fewer than 200 passengers.  The cruise lines that rely on small ships cruising often stress education, soft adventure, and/or luxury experiences.
  6. 6.  These vessels are technologically sophisticated, with computers controlling sails.  The crew and even passengers volunteers rig the sails.
  7. 7.  The ships have motors, just in case the wind dies down.  People who sail on such ships want an experience rooted in other times, when billowing cloth and the romance of the sea were what sailing was all about.
  8. 8.  It is also called paddle wheeler.  Often modeled after the great steamboats of the 19th century.  These vessels permit passengers to experience America’s great rivers.
  9. 9.  Modern-style riverboats, too, are popular vehicles for experiencing such legendary rivers as the Rhine, the Danube, and the Nile,
  10. 10.  Passenger barges are usually luxurious, affording a pampered and leisurely discovery of the countryside.
  11. 11.  Usually we don’t think of a ferry trip as a cruise.  In Europe (especially in Northern Europe), many ferries provide an overnight or even multiday, cruise like experience, with private staterooms, glitzy entertainment, and bountiful dining.
  12. 12.  Some vessels, like those that sail the fjord- lines west coast of Norway, serve many functions.  They carry cargo, transport passengers between close-by villages and they also serve as cruise ships for leisure travelers too.
  13. 13.  Many unusual form of water transportation provide cruise like vacations.  It’s possible for a leisure traveler to book passage on freighter,  The itineraries are unpredictable and the entertainment are nonexistent.
  14. 14. OLDER OR CLASSIC SHIPS NEWER, MODERN SHIPS Much use of wood, brass, and other natural materials. Synthetic materials more common Modest-sized public areas Large public areas Can travel up to 30 knots Travel at 20-25 Nostalgic appearance Modern appearance Hulls have deep drafts; some ports are therefore inaccessible and/or require tendering. Hulls have shallow drafts; ports more accessible. Small windows or portholes Larger windows More obstructed stateroom views Fewer obstructed stateroom views
  15. 15. OLDER OR CLASSIC SHIPS NEWER, MODERN SHIPS “Pedestrian” flow through ship sometimes awkward Easy “pedestrian” flow through ship Stateroom verandahs more rare Stateroom verandahs more likely Smaller swimming pools Larger swimming pools “Promenade” decks common “Promenade” decks less common Many different-sized staterooms; staterooms are relatively large More standardized stateroom size; some staterooms mar be small.
  16. 16.  By the number of staterooms  By how many passengers the ship accommodates  By gross registered tonnage or GRT
  17. 17.  GRT is determined by a formula that gauges the volume of the public spaces on ship.  It measure only measures only enclosed space available to passengers.
  18. 18. SIZE OF SHIPS GRT PAX Very small Under10,000 GRT Under 200 pax Small 10,000-20,000 GRT 200-500 pax Medium 20,000-50,000 GRT 500-1,200 pax Large 50,000-70,000 GRT 1,200-2,000 pax Megaship 70,000 GRT or more 2,000 pax or more
  19. 19.  Offer many more facilities, activities, choices and options.  Are often more dramatic-looking  Are able to serve a wider spectrum of guest types  Easily accommodate groups  Are generally quite stable in the water  Offer a more intimate atmosphere  Can sail into smaller places  Permit easier embarkation and debarkation  Make it simple for passengers to get to know the ship and others onboard.
  20. 20.  The space ratio number conveys the “space” or “elbow room” each person will have.  The space ratio of a vessel is determined by dividing the GRT by passengers capacity. For example: If a vessel has a 30,000 GRT and carry 1,000 passengers, its space ratio is 30. Space Ratio= GRT pax = 30,000 1,000 = 30
  21. 21. A stateroom, also called a cabin, is to a ship what a guest room is to a hotel.
  22. 22.  Deck plans are important.  In brochures, color coding makes a deck plan easy to read.  Usually, the higher the deck in on the ship, the higher the category and price.  Deck plans often note certain special stateroom circumstances,  Deck plans are also posted aboard ship.
  23. 23.  A ship’s “registry” usually has nothing to do with where the line is headquartered.  On some ships smoking is permitted almost everywhere onboard.  Where do ships go when they “retire”?  Each year the Center for Disease Control (CDC) co conduct about two unannounced inspections of any cruise vessel that carries 13 or more passengers and that call on US ports.
