My case study is about the information system at a cruise ship named Queen Mary 2. What a lovely, luxurious cruise ship it is. I wanna own one. Bwahaha. :)
It includes 5 swimming pools, a spa (Royal Ranch Canyon Spa Club) , a planetarium (Winter’s Garden), a two-story theatre that seats 1,000 (Royal Theatre), a casino (Empire Casino), bars (Golden Lion, Veuvet Cliquot Champagne Bar), restaurants (Britannia Restaurant, Queen’s Grill, Todd English, King’s Court), ballroom (Queen’s Room), a café (Boardwalk café), a recreation area (Sports Centre), a 500 seat theatre-like place also for conference (Illuminations), a clubhouse (Commodore Club), a library and bookshop, shops (Mayfair Shops), a nightclub (G32 Nightclub), luxurious kennels, a nursery staffed with British nannies and wine collection at sea.

The height of QM2’s funnel, at 62 metres above the water line, has been limited in order for her to be able to pass under Verazzano Narrows Bridge in New York.
Artists representing 128 countries have been commissioned to provide more than $5 million worth of art.
Approximately 250 tonnes of paint will have been applied using spray guns covering an
area of 550,000 square metres.
Cunard has entered into partnership with the University of Oxford to provide a programme of authors, historians, artists, scientists and celebrities to enrich the onboard experience. (*And I searched it.. it's called the Cunard ConneXions. *)
A single joystick on the Bridge manoeuvres her sideways, at an angle or she can even remain stationary over a fixed spot on the earth by use of satellites and wind gauges. (*high tech*)
QM2 is the only ship that can boast a Planetarium. (*Gah. In my ship I will have.. a skating rink.. etc. etc. Ang wala sa iba.. nasa ship ko. haha*)
There are one thousand, two hundred and fifty three officers and crew onboard QM2.
My ship would then be called Angelblush. Ay ang korny! haha.
