Default Passenger space ratio

Would someone please explain the "passenger space ratio", sometimes seen in listings for various cruise ships. What does the number mean and is a higher number preferred over a lower number? Thank you in advance - Willy

Default Re: Passenger space ratio

The higher the ratio the better. Example: if it said 1 to 40, it would mean that there is 40ft of passenger space per person. Passenger space would include all passenger rooms and public areas. Another example to illustrate the ratio. If you had two 70,000 ton ships that are the same length (and all else being equal) and one ship held 1800 passengers and the other held 2400 passengers, the one with 1800 would have a higher space ratio.

Gross tonnage divided with passenger capacity will give you the ratio.
