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. You cannot use the yacht commercially. This cuts off a potential revenue source.
Location of the cabin regardless the size is very important. How close do you want to be to the upper deck? Do you have children who will be hard to travel up and down flights of stairs with every day? Where is the cabin in relation to the engine or water lines? Be sure to look at a map of the cruise ship before choosing a cabin location. Many people are not very concerned about where their cabin is since they will just be sleeping there. However on longer cruises your cabin will be the only private place you have to get away from all the noise and relax. You may want to be certain the cabin is far away from the main deck to ensure it will be a quiet area. On the other hand perhaps you enjoy the party do not plan on sleeping much and would prefer a cabin close to all the action. Choosing a cabin is very important as an uncomfortable cabin could make for a very uncomfortable trip.
It may be hard to believe but the show by the Blue Man Group actually exceeds NCL`s hype! It was the most unique (... yes I`m using that word again... ) and professional act I`ve seen on any cruise ship. Thoroughly funny and entertaining I would rather see that show night after night than to sit through some of the same old Broadway song-and-dance shows I`ve seen on so many other cruise ships. The Blue Man performance was in the ship`s main theatre which considering the size of the Epic was relatively small (with a seating capacity of under 600 people). However despite that fact the theatre was not packed because consistent with NCL`s concept of Freestyle Cruising the Epic was designed with multiple entertainment venues each offering a different show.
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.
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).
