Abstract

The cruise industry represents one of the fastest growing shipping industries, supported by a 62% demand increase for the last decade, and an order-book in excess of $25bn. The sustained growth in demand is complemented by increasing vessel size, which represent investments in the order of billions.
Megaships serve a specific market segment, with capacities in excess of 6,000 guests and crew. Increased capacities though lead to an increasing number of people at risk, hence safety considerations are key to these developments. By considering the current trends of the industry, a techno-economic feasibility for a 12,000 passenger mega-liner, with a significantly increased safety level, is investigated. The increased size of the cruise ship enables enhanced on-board guest experience, whilst ensuring an unparalleled safety level.
