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.
The \"Hardware\" When discussing the physical attributes of a cruise ship (i.e. its layout and appearance) industry professionals often refer to the ships \"hardware\". So lets start there. At 153000 tons with a passenger capacity of 4100 (based on double occupancy) the Norwegian Epic is by far the largest ship in the NCL fleet. In fact with the exception of Royal Caribbeans Oasis of the Seas (which was launched in December 2009) NCLs Epic is among the largest cruise ships at sea. It is also one of the most uniquely designed cruise ships that I have ever been on (... and Ive been on quite a few). In most cases that \"uniqueness\" is a very positive attribute which reflects the thoughtfulness and attention that the Epics designers must have paid to maximizing the use of space to achieve a much bigger wide-open \"feel\" to all of the ships public areas. And the way that one area just seemed to \"flow\" into the next (without the \"cookie-cutter\" rigidity sometimes found on cruise ships) was truly remarkable.
Norwegian is also more casual than other cruise ships and skips the assigned dining times. If youre looking forward to a fantastic dining experience Oceania is known for wonderful specialty restaurants while Celebrity is famous for healthful and alternative dining choices. But if luxury is the goal Crystal Cruises offer some of the best luxury ships and fine dining to be found at sea or check out Costa Cruises Concordia class for an incredible spa experience. Of course for many people the budget is an important issue. Cruises can be divided into three basic categories - budget premium or luxury. On-board amenities as well as on-shore activities play a role in price but probably the primary difference in the categories will be the staff-to-customer ratio.
Certainly everything is brand new and there are certain bragging rights when you can say \"I was on the first voyage of ship XYZ.\" But the first cruise is sometimes a shake-out cruise. The staffs probably havent worked together before and are still trying to come together as a team. They may be inexperienced and going through on-the-job training. And of course a ship is a massive construction project just like building a new apartment or office building and just like a new building a new ship may have glitches in the plumbing or the wiring to be worked out. If you want perfection on your cruise you may want to make sure that youve chosen an established ship.
