The interior of passenger ship and cruise ship

Thursday, July 16, 20092comments

In my previous article about the Cruise Ship and Passenger Ship, I mentioned that both ships are built for transporting people but their purpose of service is different. For passenger ships, the faster they reach their destinations the better their services will be. For cruise ships, the more the passengers spend their time aboard the ships the better should be the service of the ships and the higher the profit ship owners can get. These differences in purpose of service determine the interior of the ships. Please, read Oasis of the Seas Interior if you want to know more about the Cruise Ship.

In passenger ships, cabins for accommodating passengers are grouped into several classes of passengers. They are Class 1, Class 2, Class 3, Class 4 and Class Economy. The facilities in Class 1 will definitely be different from facilities provided for economy class passengers. Class 1 passengers have their own private bed rooms equipped with a television set, and wash rooms whereas the economy class passengers sleep in large halls similar to school dormitories or military barracks where some 50 to 100 passengers sleep in one large compartment.
For cruise ships, naval architects prefer to design the cabins with smaller range of classes. A cruise ship may only have VIP and First Class. Every cabin is designed to accommodate two passengers. It means that the ships are designed for couples who like to enjoy their ocean travel in their own private rooms that sometimes overlooking the blue ocean. Rooms and facilities in cruise ships are usually more spacious. Some ships even have casino or gambling floors and golf floors.

For short distance travels across a straight or gulf, naval architects prefer to design small ships that are fast. The choice for this requirement will be catamaran or swath ships that have higher speed with water jet or highly skew propellers as their propulsion systems. The use of highly skew propellers greatly reduces the vibration which is the main issue in passenger ship design.

the interior of Iris catamaran passenger ferry with capacity of 240 passengers. It looks similar to the interior of an airplane. There are not any bedrooms for fast ferry because the duration of sailing is between 1 and 2.5 hours. A TV set is usually installed to entertain the passengers. I haven't seen any catamaran whose passenger cabin interior has tv set in every seat as what we now see in modern first class airplanes manufactured by Boeing and Airbus.
Besides designing lavish and comfortable interior for ship cabins, the material choice for passenger and cruise ships are chosen from the ones that are strong, light weight and most importantly fire resistant. Port and starboard side cabins of cruise ships may have walls that are fully made of glasses to enable the passengers to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the islands or the blue ocean as the ships go by.
Although the facilities and cabins of passenger and cruise ships are different, the life-saving equipments for these ships are the same. When accidents happen, each crew and passenger will have his own life jacket. The capacity of life boats and life rafts are usually double the number of passengers aboard to ensure that all passengers can survive at sea. by Charles Roring
