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+ assengers. passengers.
