How often will the ship go into dry dock and how long is that estimated to be?

Passenger ships are under heavy regime of international safety regulations. They have to be inspected under water annually but only two of those inspections have to be carried out in the dry dock. Every five years we will go into dry dock. The normal period of a dry dock for a newer ship is about 10 days. But it depends on how much work needs to be carried out. If there is refurbishment work that people want or engineering work that needs to be done, then it can be longer. As the ship gets older, the periods will increase. We believe The World goes in to dry dock every three years for about 35 days but keep in mind that’s an older ship so it goes in for a longer period of time.
