Since you are putting up classic steamship liners as space use paradigms for Traveller passenger traffic, doesn't that suggest a redo to deck plans and tickets?


For instance, as you mentioned the luxury people would never put up with the sort of Pullman limits the High Passage passenger apparently buys into.


So perhaps the standard for liners should be more like most staterooms are more like 'owner's suites' on yacht plans, catering to a class of ticket we'll call Luxury Passage, 8 tons at Cr30000 for CT purposes (scale to your system), and an expectation of effectively 1:1 Steward time (entertainment steward part time, cooking steward part time, and of course the cleaning/fetchit steward).



Then if you can't board enough to pay for the full suite, subdivide it to put two High/Medium Passage in it.



I don't know that the Steward ratio is sustainable in Traveller economics, automation in both services and entertainment would be key. I'd tend to look at cruise liners now for more of a crewing structure.
