The objective of this training is to increase both technical and operational knowledge about cruise ships for those working in shipyards.

The course is usually conducted as an in-house training for a shipyard working on a specific project, where own documents can be used for some of the learning activities.

Entrance regulations

Some prior knowledge of ship design principles is recommended

Who should attend:
Design and proposal engineers at shipyards, as well as other technical staff and project managers working on newbuilding projects for cruise vessels

Duration: 2 days

This two-day training is highly interactive with an extensive use of real cases, ideally provided by the shipyard/course participants themselves. It targets design and proposal engineers, as well as technical staff and project managers who have experience with ship types other than cruise vessels.

The course provides guidelines on problem solving throughout all project phases, from design & proposal, to engineering, project management, construction and finally outfitting and commissioning.

Upon completion of this course the participants will have a global insight into the technical challenges, customer requirements and regulatory framework of a cruise ship. With their deeper understanding of the issues they will be able to contribute fully to problem solving and project management during design, construction and commissioning and be better equipped to formulate in-depth questions when working with the various discipline experts.

The course focuses on:

  • The cruise ship market, main players, sub-segments and cultures
  • Specific features/areas on the General Arrangement of a cruise ship
  • Regulatory framework and the role of Class
  • Technical focus areas for selected systems including fire safety, escape and lifesaving appliances
  • Relevant passenger ship regulations from SOLAS
  • Introduction to passenger ship requirements for hull, stability, noise & vibration
  • Work processes for Polar Code, Safe Return to Port (SRtP) and Alternative Design
