After acquiring the ship it will require some more investment to put it into service. At this point the joint owners will need to reach some agreements on many points. The cost of putting a cruise ship into service as a megayacht (very large private yacht) is much less than putting the ship into commercial service. However if you can afford to buy a ship can easily meet SOLAS 2010 requirements and can afford to flag and register it as a commercial ship then you can use the ship commercially to produce income and ROI (return on investment).
Many cruise ships today have standard cabins of similar size and accoutrements with the price differential being the location. The least expensive inside standard cabins on a mainstream cruise ship run from about 120 square feet to 180 square feet. Since most cruise ships are relatively new or have been refurbished the cabins usually are tastefully decorated with twin beds that can be pushed together to make a queen-sized bed for couples. The cruise staterooms have wall-to-wall carpeting individually controlled air conditioning/heating dresser or storage space closet telephone and satellite television. The television usually has news sports local on-ship channels for broadcasting information on shore excursions or from guest lecturers and movies.
If there are many other co-owners of the ship to split the operating expenses of the ship it can be affordable for those with a moderate level of income such as a retirement check. I do have specific operating cost figures but I won`t bore you with that data. The bottom line is that it would not be prohibitively expensive for a middle-class average person to be able to afford to own a fraction of a cruise ship and be able to afford to live on the cruise ship full-time if they elect to do so.
Operating a cruise ship is expensive. The expenses include the cost of fuel labor maintenance repairs spares food port charges insurance technical management shore management registration and the other costs of operating the ship. At first glance these costs may seem expensive but in reality the cost of living at sea is actually a bargain considering what you get based upon what you pay. The best value does not always translate to the cheapest price. If the ship is well managed the management will seek the highest quality goods services and labor at the very best global value. If the owners are dissatisfied with either technical or shore management they replace them.
Cruise ship vacations are a great way to travel relax and visit exotic lands. Every cruise I take I learn something new that makes my next trip more enjoyable. Here are 10 secrets that will make all your cruise ship vacations memorable. 1. Most cruise lines offer special discounts for past guests police officers and firefighters military personnel (active duty retired and sometimes even veterans with as little as 2 years service) senior citizens airline employees and more. I had already been on several cruises before I found out I was eligible for a military discount. Don`t rely on your travel agent to point it out. In fact it was a fellow passenger who gave me this hot tip. You can find this information on the cruiseline`s website but it might take a little digging. (Hint: start at FAQ or search for `special cruise pricing.`) It`s worth the effort -- the military discount I received applied to both me and my wife and was very generous. 2. When you`re booking your cruise you may be able to choose where you want your cabin -- toward the front of the ship the rear or the middle; upper decks or lower. Generally the higher the deck the more expensive the cabin. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing your location: ~ being close to the elevators might be convenient but it can also be noisy. This is especially true of service elevators. ~ avoid being under the disco or gym because you`ll hear people partying late into the night or working out early in the morning. ~ the front and rear of the ship can be noisy from anchors and propellers. 3. The elevators get crowded especially at mealtimes and when getting off the ship in port. I always push both call buttons and get on whichever elevator gets there first. Even if I have to go the opposite direction I found it`s still faster than waiting in the lobby for the right elevator. 4. To save closet space in your cabin slide your suitcases under the bed after unpacking. You won`t need them until it`s time to disembark. 5. If you attend any of the shopping and excursion orientations sit up front. They frequently throw free stuff out into the audience to build excitement. 6. Some cruise ships have a cruise director`s TV show to keep guests informed about the ship`s activities. Call or write in with comments or questions and you`ll likely win a free bottle of champagne or other gift. Cruise directors love guests who participate. 7. Bring a small flashlight or plug in night light. The cabins get very dark especially inside cabins. 8. There`s always plenty of food on a cruise ship but try not to overdo it. Set food goals. If you have a big breakfast have a light lunch. Maybe the next day do the opposite. Try to balance what you eat in terms of carbs proteins sweets etc. 9. Instead of waiting in the buffet line for breakfast and hoping you`ll find a table eat breakfast in the dining room. It`s hardly ever crowded and you`ll get some great choices for breakfast that you probably won`t see on the buffet line. 10. Pack a travellers first aid kit with sun block aspirin bandaids ointment and be sure to include insect repellent. On a recent cruise we toured a zoo in the jungles of Belize and the insects were overwhelming! My wife came back covered in bug bites. While cruise ships have a medical doctor on board there`s a charge to see the doc... it can be pretty expensive for treatment of minor mishaps.
