Seakeeping abilities of a ship and the comfort of passengers have always been the topmost priority of a passenger cruise vessel. Modern ship designs have been marketed by placing a huge emphasis on its seakeeping performance. An Analytical Ship Dynamic Study On Cruise Ship Operations And Passenger Motion Sickness Assessment aims to provide a detailed study on previous research efforts, seakeeping assessments, factors affecting the comfort of cruise ship passengers and the usage of seakeeping software OCTOPUS to generate, simulate, and analyze voyages. In-depth study of the 6 degrees of freedom of a ship, motion sickness and wave formation will also be done to provide definition and more clarity to this report.
