Motor Ship. There are also MVs, Motor Vessels. But I have yet to find out the difference, except that Great Lake ore carriers and ferries are MVs. It mght be a matter of size.


I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!

Sensation 2/03 I disembarked, but never really left the ship.
Enchantment 9/03 Just had to go back.
Inspiration 3/04 Just have to go back again, and again, and again...
Sensation 04/05 The vessel made me do it!

As far as I can tell they tend to prefer M/S over M/V for large cruise ships but lots of them use both...
Others:
De.Az/S- Diesel Azipod Ship
GTV- Gas Turbine Vessel
