Cruise ships are generally designed as more of a hotel so the insulation and the panelling between units is not always as effective as you would expect in an apartment. This is of very high importance for us. As a first stage, we’ve got Lloyds Classification involved in the design of the building of the ship. They are going to class the ship, which means they’ll set standards to the shipyard in a number of aspects on how the ship should be built. One of their standards has to do with noise vibration. MV Narrative is being built to the “comfort class” standards. We have lots of ways to apply the highest standard of comfort class that there is to this ship. We’ve also asked the shipyard to look at minimizing both structural and airborne noise and vibration transfer between the units. We’ve discussed a number of systems available to minimize that. Our noise requirements are very stringent.
