Passenger Ships

The primary function of a Passenger ship is to transport passengers. Passenger ships undertaking international voyages have to comply with relevant IMO regulations, which also include the SOLAS and Load Line Conventions.
Present day Passenger ships are subjected to stringent regulations and standards which cover every aspects of ship construction and operation. This is due to the number of incidents that have occurred over past many years, which has led maritime organisations like IMO to make improvements in the safety requirements through its various conventions.
Passenger ships need to comply with two major IMO requirements: to perform musters of the passengers, within 24 hours after their embarkation and to be able to perform full abandonment within a period of 30 minutes from the time the abandon-ship signal alarm is given.
The traditional form of a passenger ship is an ocean liner which was once operated for transporting passengers to various destinations across the world. These have eventually disappeared with the advent of airlines, but with their decline came an increase in sea trips for pleasure which later gave way to cruise ships which provided luxurious holidays to exotic tourist destinations across the globe. A cruise ship has a wide range of facilities on board which include swimming pools, cinemas, bars, casinos, theatres,ballrooms, sport facilities, etc
