This pending SOLAS implementation date has already started to show up as a primary factor in the asking and selling prices of ships on the market today. SOLAS 2010 also offers a tremendous opportunity for those who may prefer to have a very large houseboat instead of a commercial ship. Ships that are not in compliance with SOLAS 2010 are now selling for a song (inexpensively). A cruise ship can easily be converted into a megayacht with the stroke of a pen. Privately owned yachts not in commercial service and not carrying passengers or cargo for hire are exempt from many of the SOLAS requirements. Operating costs are also lower for a private yacht. It cost less to register flag and insure a private yacht. Megayachts can be flagged and classified for unlimited service. That means that a megayacht can go practically anywhere you want it to go. There is one major drawback to registering a cruise ship as a private yacht.
These cruises are designed for handling adequate provision of food. Cruise ships are serving thousands of eatables at every setting. Storage facilities for many raw ingredients and many beverages are always with the latest technology. Queen Mary 2 is the largest ship in operation now. It has 151400 gross tons and is owned by Cunard Line one of those subsidiaries in Carnival Corporation the large cruise company in operation today. Queen Mary 2 has 5 on-board pools sweeping stairs one ballroom a 360-degree deck and various specialty shops. Its built for reviving the glamour of the ocean liners the business would sink as jet travel started the prominence over the Atlantic.
One of the hallmarks of NCLs acclaimed \"Freestyle Cruising\" is the choice of dining options and not surprisingly the Epic takes this feature to a new level. In addition to the two main dining areas the Epic offers 17 other dining venues each with its own cuisine and ambiance. This includes the spacious main buffet area (the \"Garden Cafe\") in which the food was consistently fresh and of high-quality (albeit with somewhat less variety than weve experienced on some other ships). It also includes the poolside grill (\"Spice H2O\") \"OSheehans\" (a huge sprawling pub that became the meeting place and \"social nucleus\" for many of the ships guests) and several specialty restaurants such as La Cucina Italian restaurant (which was even more attractively decorated on the Epic than on other NCL ships) Tepanyaki Japanese grill (much larger than on other NCL ships) and Le Bistro French restaurant just to name a few. Each of the specialty restaurants has a \"cover charge\" (which ranges from $10 to $35 per person) but in my opinion they are all well worth the money.
Many ships have day care centers. These child care centers are centers that benefit both moms and dads and their children. Because a cruise ship is likely to have passengers of all various ages many child care centers are grouped together by ages. The cruise lines employ counselors each with childcare education experience that are there to make sure everyone in these small age groups have an amazing time. The few services activities and centers listed above are simply a few of the many that are targeted to kids aged twelve and under. You may want to think about scheduling your next family trip aboard a cruise ship if you are pleased with the above pointed out services activities and child care centers.
