The cabins have a significant role in cruise ship design, because the number and size of them affect on the ships income. Despite of this the cabin design process is not formal and documentation of the design process is limited. This thesis formalizes the design process of cruise ship cabins by finding general design drivers for the cabins. The design drivers are searched by a literature review and interviews. The found design drivers are ranked by potential passengers and shipbuilding experts. A case study is performed to ensure the reliability and functionality of the design drivers.
