What we’re designing is not exactly a cruise ship which is more of a holiday hotel. It’s expected to have high occupancy at all times, high passenger traffic, frequent embarking and disembarking. The vessel we’re building a residence ship. It’s a home and a place of work. It’s got a longer life expectancy and it can have lower occupancy at times and have empty cabins at times. There’s a lot less passenger traffic and the design is completely different. The way that we’re approaching the materials is completely different. Normally you reference another cruise ship in the specifications for types of material and the quality of what’s aboard for the shipyard. In our case, we have actually specified exactly what we want for each unit because there isn’t a reference ship out there. We take inspiration from other ships but we’re actually designing this ship from scratch.
