Cost is typically the primary concern of most travelers. The more amenities a cabin offers the more it will cost. For example cabins with a balcony typically cost 25% more than cabins with just a window. Windowless cabins cost far less but guests are left with no view. It is important to know what you are willing to live without on your trip. If a balcony is not that important then forego it to save money for entertainment or a future trip. Cabin sizes will differ on different cruise lines. The smallest rooms on larger cruise ships will be bigger than some of the larger rooms on smaller cruise ships. Many people prefer to get a smaller room and extend their vacation. After all the cabin is just a place to sleep. All of the fun and entertainment is above deck.
It is a late model and beautiful ship. It has many highly desirable attributes for a residential ship. It is a high end luxury cruise ship with an extraordinarily high tonnage to passenger ratio. This is very important for a residential ship. More living room and more space per passenger is far more essential for a residential ship than for a conventional cruise ship. When passengers are only on a ship for a short time they can tolerate cramped living quarters but when they live year-round on a ship the extra space is quite valuable. The owners have been trying to sell this ship for $22000000. That may seem like a high price but when you divide it by the number of cabins (195) the asking price per cabin is $102564. This price is in line with what you would expect to pay for a condominium. The last word I got from the owners is that they will sell the ship for $18000000 now ($92307 per cabin). The cabins are all outside cabins and are large. The ship can accommodate 606 passengers and a crew of 120 for a total of 726 people.
The next step above an outside cabin is one with a balcony (verandah). These cruise cabins have sliding glass doors giving you access to the outside. The sliding doors also mean you can see outside from anywhere in the cabin i.e. lie on the bed and still see the ocean outside. Usually the cruise balcony cabins are also larger than the standard cabins and some qualify as mini-suites. Which means they have a small sitting area with a loveseat or convertible sofa. The cruise mini-suites also usually have a curtain that can be drawn to separate the sleeping and sitting areas. This feature is ideal for couples (or friends) that have different sleeping habits.
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.
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.
