The contemporary cruise ship. The industry generally calls these giant-sized ships megaships. They accommodate 2,000 passengers or more and have 12 or more decks (the equivalent of a story in a building). 5
Small Ships Accommodate fewer than 200 passengers. These ships often stress education, soft adventure, and/or luxury experiences. They often look like cruise Ships in miniature or oversized yachts. 6
Masted Sailing Ships Powered by the wind. They have motors incase the wind dies down. People who sail on such ships want an experience rooted in other times, when billowing cloth and the romance of the sea were what sailing was all about. 7
Riverboats Great steamboats of the nineteenth century. Modern-style riverboats, too, are popular vehicles for experiencing such legendary rivers s the Rhine, the Danube, and the Nile. • Barges Passenger barges are luxurious, affording a pampered and leisurely discovery of the countryside. 8
