Re: Specialized designs

with bad service staff
Well, what do you expect from a ship commanded by a Frenchman? He apparently handpicked at least the bartender...

I'd say the construction of luxury liners would be less dependent on prosperity (there's money to be made on catering for even the less affluent travelers) and more on stability (piracy and constant wars eat into profits big time). Assuming an economy like today's, that is. We don't know what rules apply to definite "luxury items" like this in the moneyless utopia of TNG - but we do hear Vash needed to share some of her personal wealth to book passage to DS9, and if liners don't operate on charity basis in the UFP (or its exciting borderlands), cruise ships probably don't do that, either.
