A typical day aboard a cruise ship in Europe starts with breakfast being delivered to your room and placed on your balcony so you can watch as you gently glide into port. If you dont have anything planned for that day go the restaurant deck and enjoy a hearty meal. If you have a tour booked head for the meeting area that has been designated by the cruise line. In most cases the tours are four to five hours long giving you the rest of the day to explore more fully. If you have planned it right you can do your tour then return to the ship for lunch then go out in the afternoon to hit the spots you have chosen to see. Most cruise lines set sail for the next port in the early evening around 5 or 6 oclock. After you have watched the sail away you have time to get cleaned up have a drink and then have a leisurely dinner. There is always entertainment after dinner to enjoy. The casino and the bars will be opened to the late hours but remember you have an early start the next day.
You entered the stateroom through a door between a shower stall and a toilet stall (each with a heavily \"frosted\" enclosure). A curtain separated these areas from the main part of the stateroom which among other things included the bed a couch storage closets / cabinets and a sink. The advantage of having the sink outside of the toilet and shower area is that one occupant can use the sink while another is using the shower or toilet (a convenience that you dont often find in traditional cruise ship staterooms). In addition the unique design of the stateroom provided much more storage space than is typically found in a conventional stateroom of similar dimensions. However despite that I found the stateroom to be very \"tight\" (particularly in the cabins that have the bed nearer to the entrance door than to the balcony door) and overall I must admit that I would have preferred a more conventionally designed stateroom configuration or one of the larger deluxe balcony (\"Category D\") staterooms on the Epic).
In addition to a swimming pool and an arcade room a lot of cruise ships have an onboard film theater or a performance stage. To identify if the movies on the ship are suitable for your child you should always make sure to check the cruise ships movie schedule. Restaurants and other dining centers on your cruise ship are likely to cater to kids under the age of twelve. Lots of restaurants have kids menus. These menus usually consist of tasty but kid sized meals. The cost of your kids meals will differ from ship to ship; nevertheless numerous cruise ships provide discount rates on meals for children under the age of twelve. On some ships food is included with the total cost of your cruise.
Maintaining compliance with Chapter II SOLAS 74 amendments is cost prohibitive for some older ships and they are typically scrapped instead of being refurbished at great expense. There is a very important SOLAS implementation date coming up on January 10 2010. On that date all commercial international ships will be required to be in compliance with the new fire safety codes. The most important new codes deal with the use of combustible materials in the ship. It will be expensive to replace all combustible materials in ships with non-combustible or flame resistant SOLAS compliant materials that meet the new safety standards. This will result in many ships being sold for scrap metal. The looming SOLAS 2010 implementation date offers both perils and opportunities. The biggest peril is the possibility that the expense to bring a ship into full compliance with international standards will be greater than the value of the ship. However there is a silver lining in this cloud.
