Standard inside cabin. This type of cabin has no windows and is located on the inside corridor. It is usually carpeted and furnished with a telephone TV and air conditioning unit. The standard inside cabins of newer cruise liners includes a refrigerator small vault table loveseat and an Internet access. The bathroom has a shower but typically is small with no tub. It usually has a retractable clothesline for hanging wet garments to dry.
The asking price for this ship is less than the price for one large apartment on The Magellan. The asking price and selling price are two different prices. This ship could probably be bought for about 11 million dollars. It would be foolish to finish this ship in a Greek union shipyard. It can be economically towed over to the nearby shipyards in Tuzla Turkey. The ship can be finished there quicker and for about half the price and with better craftsmanship. This ship could be bought and finished to a high standard equal to The Orphalese for a total cost of much less than 100 million dollars (maybe even as low as 60 million). It can be finished to order with each residential unit customized to suit its owner(s). The finished product would be a brand new completely modern ship with luxury homes onboard which would be at least as good or better than any on the market. That still seems like a big chunk of change. But this is a big ship and it would easily accommodate 200 luxury residential units and an additional 200 or so conventional cruise cabins like The Orphalese. The average cost of the residential units would be less than $500000. That would mean that the smaller residential units would cost much less than the average price. Also with an additional two hundred (plus) conventional cruise cabins the cabin owners could recoup much of the operating costs and thus virtually eliminate the maintenance fees for themselves. The expense to owners can be less than 10% of the going rates if the buyers did not need to pay some slick promoters and salesmen but just bought the ship directly themselves sharing the actual costs by dividing the ship ownership among the buyers. Why would anyone want to pay ten times as much money to buy and much higher maintenance fees for a similar shipboard residential unit? The only reason I can think of is to impress others with how much money they can afford to throw away. Again the asking price is subject to negotiation. Used ships can be refurbished to look practically new and can be brought up to international safety standards (SOLAS). There are shipyards around the world that can do good quality work at even lower cost than the shipyards in Tuzla Turkey. If a ship is currently lying in Greece (as many are) then Tuzla is the best place to tow it for major shipyard work. The SE shipyards in the Black Sea port of Nikolaev Ukraine offers the best value for the money in that part of the world. The bottom line is that smart shoppers can get good deals even on lavish purchases such as a luxury residential home aboard a cruise ship. I maintain a list of those who have expressed an interest. The list is confidential and will not be shared for any marketing purposes. The purpose of maintaining the list is to facilitate joint ownership directly between buyers without any middlemen or promoters involved.
On this pre-inaugural cruise I tried two of the specialty restaurants Cagney`s steakhouse and Moderno Churrascaria a Brazilian all-you-can-eat barbeque in which guests signal their servers with a green card (OK I`m ready for more) or a red card (No more please. I`m stuffed). My wife and I have raved about Cagney`s steakhouse on several other Norwegian cruise ships (e.g. the NCL Dawn the NCL Gem and the NCL Jewel) and we enjoyed it just as much on the Epic. On the other hand we were not nearly as impressed with the Epic`s Moderno Churrascaria which is the first such restaurant on any cruise ship. The salad bar was absolutely fabulous (especially the plump shrimp and fantastic gourmet cheeses) but other than the sirloin (which the servers cut right in front of you) my wife and I were both disappointed with the quality of the meats. Ironically my son Greg (who is CEO of Direct Line Cruises) and several of our staff members tried Moderno Churrascaria and really liked it. So don`t take my word for it.
If you are retired or otherwise have a stable income from a dependable source you probably can afford to be a cruise ship co-owner and live full-time onboard a cruise ship. If you work in a field where you can work from home online then you too can probably afford to become a co-owner of a cruise ship. Most modern ships have satellite Internet service available 24-7.
There are hundreds of cruise ships on the market but I will just mention one more here. This cruise ship has RO/RO (Roll-On Roll-Off) capability. This would be very convenient for live aboard owners who want to bring their toys with them. The garage deck will accommodate 6 to 8 trucks or 60 to 80 cars. That converts to a lot of co-owner toys such as motorhomes travel trailers campers cabin cruisers ski boats jet skis sailboats houseboats bass boats motorcycles ATVs cars and trucks.
