My family recently decided that a cruise was the way to go for our vacation. Taking a pleasure trip on the water seemed like a good idea so I began to research cruise ships and related information. As I did I can across postings for vessel parts and began to contemplate the magnitude of a cruise ship.
When passengers board a cruise ship, they are expecting an experience. Cruise vessels and the vessel parts they use are different from the parts of a cargo vessel. A cruise liner gives up some of the original seaworthiness of an ocean liner to be able to provide amenities that cater to tourists. In either case however the ships have to have adequate provisions, so a spare part supply of vessel parts is important to keep the ship running when at sea. Until I was getting ready to cruise myself, I had never given a thought to cruise vessel parts and equipment.
The specialized parts and equipment needed for ocean liners and cruise ships create a business for marine spare parts suppliers. Vessel parts may be sophisticated enough to repair an engine and simple enough to be used in a galley pantry. When these large vessels set sail, they are equipped with provisions of food and water to feed the crew and passengers, but ocean liners also carry additional fuel, victuals and stores for longer voyages. It is not unusual for an ocean liner to be at sea for months at a time, so a supply of spare parts is often needed for repairs along the way.
Vessel parts and ships in general were not something that I ever thought I would find interesting. However a little mention of a cruise and some research to make it happen opened my eyes to all the different components that support those big cities on the water. As I read about the different vessel parts I discovered a new passion and hope I do not drive my family crazy with my new ocean liner facts as they enjoy their cocktails at the pool.
