After reading the request for deckplans for 'cruise ships' here on The Fleet forum I did a bit of web research on oceanic cruise ships. These ships come in a variety of sizes, both in tonnage and passenger capacity. Given that such a liner couldn't make a profit nor even pay it's mortgage under the CT/MT/TNE/T4/T20 passenger availability and starship operation rules I'm not interested in an economics debate. What I am interested in is other people's opinion of how big, in tonnage and passenger capacity, a starship 'cruise' ship might be. I used Andrew Moffit-Vance's (sorry if I mis-spelled that) High Guard Shipyard to design a couple of ships. The first is a 10k dton ship, the second is a 16k dton ship.

For both ships the passengers are considered high passage tickets. IIRC both ships have a passenger to steward ratio of 6 to 1. The cargo hold for both ships is primarily to be used to transport some of the passengers personal vehicles such as grav speeders or grav cars. Though such ships probably wouldn't travel the frontiers I included armament for both ships for self-defense. Ships without such armament would have some extra cargo capacity or amenities.

I plan to make deckplans for a starship 'cruise' liner by year's end.

I seek comments.
