Cruise Ship Technical Specifications
As most of you probably know, I'm in college studying Naval Architecture, with an ultimate goal of getting into cruise ship design.

I'm actually starting real Naval Arch. classes this semester. They've been telling us the different ways to mathematically describe the shape and form of a hull.

To make a very long post short, does anyone know where I could find the different specifications for cruise ships? It's for an extra credit assignment. And I mean more than just the basic numbers they give you in the brochures. Like, the brochures give me the length overall, however for this assignment I need the length of the waterline, which is less than the length overall, but is a very important spec. for the design of the hull.

Check the manufacturer websites. I know that Fincantieri and STX might be able to help you out, and an email to their PR people could also prove helpful.

I would also check

That site didn't quite have what I need, but thanks anyway.

What I need are properties such as "length between perpendiculars (LBP)", "length of waterline (LWL)", TPI (Tons per inch immersion), etc. Properties that the average cruise probably won't care about.

I'd pop an email over to STX and Fincantieri. More than likely they'll have those particulars for you then.

If you have access to a good libirary look for "Lloyds Register Of Shipping. It is a massive 3 voulume set of books with the tech specs of just about all of the worlds ships from ocean going tugs up to super tankers, cruise ships etc infromation given will be overall dimensions,type of main engines including make,model # of, horsepower, type of drive etc.make and model # of generator engines with KW output. fuel tank capacity Fresh water capacity boilers # of and type and many other facts this is published anually? dont look for a ship that is less than 2 years old also this only lists ships in service so dont look for the Titanic!!! hope this helps
