ENSURING CRUISE SHIP SAFETY

FROM DESIGN TO OPERATION: A LIFECYCLE OF OVERSIGHT

CRUISE SHIPS ARE AMONG THE MOST HEAVILY SCRUTINIZED MARINE VESSELS ON EARTH.

From the earliest stages of conception and design to day-to-day operations, U.S. and international agencies and experts devote thousands of hours toward confirming that every safety feature, process and system works as it should to keep passengers safe.

DESIGN

Cruise ships today are the safest that ever sailed, thanks to the rules, regulations and technological innovations that govern their design.

The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, or SOLAS, is the international framework that governs thousands of safety features and requirements for non-military vessels.

Independent classification societies survey cruise ships to ensure that construction complies with rigorous standards for structure, stability, propulsion, electrical and mechanical installations.

Design concepts and plans are developed in accordance with SOLAS safety requirements that govern details such as stability, materials, electrical, fire prevention and evacuation. Plans are reviewed by the ship’s designated classification society--independent inspectors-- before construction can begin.

The U.S. Coast Guard verifies that requirements for fire detection and suppression, complex alarm systems and many other safety systems are addressed.

Any cruise ship that might operate in the U.S. is subject to extensive concept review and subsequent examinations by the U.S. Coast Guard in order to identify and remove potential issues before construction begins.

Cruise ships that will operate in the U.S. receive many certifications before they can carry passengers, including:

Passenger Ship Safety Certificate: Ship meets IMO and flag state laws and regulations.

Certificate of Class: Ship meets classification society’s additional safety requirements.

U.S. Coast Guard Certificate of Compliance: Ship meets all applicable safety standards.

CONSTRUCTION

Inspections and surveys take place virtually every day of construction, amounting to many thousands of hours of oversight.
