a) Cruise Ships. These vessels are passenger ships on short duration voyages, typically from a single-day to a week in length. A few offer several month tours. The size of these ships are increasing rapidly, and are at least 780 feet in length and higher. The draft of these ships are in the range of 25 to 30 feet . The new cruise ships typically displace over 140,000 tons in order to carry 2,000+ passengers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
