Abstract

The rapid development of cruise economy and the eastward shift of cruise industry have put forward urgent demand for the development of cruise manufacturing industry in China. In recent years, China’s shipbuilding industry has developed rapidly, but China has no experience in luxury cruise ship design and building. To develop the luxury cruise shipbuilding industry is of great significance for China to be the world shipbuilding power and for the transformation and upgrade of the shipbuilding industry chain. At present, the trend of large-scale cruise shipbuilding becomes more and more obvious in the world. The world’s largest cruise ship has reached 228,000 t. The characteristics of ship type and in-ship facilities not only impose strict requirements for the building technology of functional equipment on ships, but also pose great challenges to the design of the overall speed, safety and comfort, and personalized configuration and building of cruise ships. In this paper, the features, building difficulties and core building technology of the world’s operating Oasis-class luxury cruise ships are sorted with the hope to bring enlightenment on the development of China’s luxury cruise shipbuilding industry.
