Cruise Ships and Ordinary Boats


Ships and boats are both watercraft vessels and there is a thin line between what differentiates them. In a nutshell, ships and boats are differentiated by their size, cargo, passenger capacity, their capabilities, and where they operate. Boats usually operate inland or in protected coastal areas whereas ships wander across the oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, and other deep waters.

A common type of ship is the cruise ship. It is a type of ship used for recreational and leisure voyages, where the journeys, the amenities provided, the attractions, entertainment, and other additions are part of the cruising experience. There are different types of cruise ships, and they include:

Mainstream Cruise Ship

It is a common type of cruise ship designed to suit the needs of passengers with all the features of a standard resort.

Luxury Cruise Ship

As hinted by its name, a luxury cruise ship offers tours and journeys in utmost and premium comfort. They are fitted with the most advanced type of technology including safety features and sophisticated communication systems.

Mega Cruise Ship

These are large cruise ships designed to accommodate over 5,000 people. They are the largest, most equipped, and sophisticated water vessels globally.

Small Cruise Ships

They have a capacity of a few hundred persons on board and they offer journeys to unpopular destinations while enhancing intimate and relaxing experiences.

Ocean Cruise Ship

They are designed for long cruises across vast distances. They can go from one continent to another and they have a strong build meant to withstand the harsh conditions of the ocean.

Adventure Cruise Ship

These types of ships provide adventures to remote locations not easily accessed by large vessels.

Expedition Cruise Ships

These are used by research experts and documentarians to explore hard-to-reach regions such as some parts of the North Pole or the South Pole. They are usually icebreaker vessels.

River Cruise Ship

They are also small cruise ships with no more than a few hundred passengers but have been exclusively designed for inland waterways and rivers.

Boats, on the other hand, are available in a litany of variants that are almost impossible to list. However, they can primarily be classified into unpowered or man-powered boats, which include rafts, kayaks, and gondolas; sailboats, and motorboats that come with an engine for power.

As for the types, there are:
