    Cruise Ship Cabling

    Cruise Ship Cabling

    Some time ago during a major Ethernet cabling job on one of the many cruise ships we work on, everything came to a big stop. The radio called me to see my location and request some help on one of the many cables we had set up the following night, "heading your way" which trust me takes some time when trying to get to the locations on any cruise ship.

    On location to find out the problem the team had come across in the area that should have moved faster, to find all the watertight fittings ready to be installed in a lower bulkhead, which is a very big and time-consuming job, lots of nuts and bolts and fireproof rubber-type bits all ready to be installed in the work area.

    The problem was that some cable or wire running person had made an attempt to go through the fire penetration with some cables before our own techs. The question always is why is it so expensive to run the cable on cruise ships, #1 you have to know what you are doing, in this case, another contracting company had employed this eastern European cable puller to install this cable.

    The photo below shows just how low cost none qualified worker can cause hundreds of dollars of problems.

    So now before we could correctly install our Cat5e cables through this fitting we had to get the ship engineer, Fire officer, "IT" officer all to come to have a look and work out a solution to fix and allow our own cables to pass through correctly.

    Not sure if the guy wanted his drill bit back, but afterward the whole event cost most of the afternoon and additional parts and two ships electrical guys to fix the cable we had to remove, the total cost in lost time and parts in the area of $750.00 bucks, not bad when the guy who did it was paid $12.00/hr and just moved to other parts of the project.

    This is why Network Connections Group USA and Cruise Ship Service work so well.

    Cruise Ship cabling testing

    The biggest problem we always have to fix on Cruise Ships is from Low-Cost workers doing the cable pulling totally wrong. Budgets have to be met from the dry docks and the cruise lines, yet many of the installs that we have worked on are correcting low-cost unskilled workers trying to install network cabling.

    Just a few things we have found over the years:-

    Cat5/e cable run of 575ft (328 ft max)

    30% of cable installed to one cabinet all over the limit and failed all test.

    No sealing of fire penetrations.

    Connectors just not right

    STP cabling no screen attached

    For many years now lots of dry dock contractors use staff with little or no knowledge of working with the high-tech cabling methods that are needed these days. The one line we don’t like or use is “it will work” Low Voltage data communications now is a high tech job, with lots of training and understanding how to do it right, or you the customer will have errors and a slow network.

    We use real technicians, not any foreign low-cost worker who has no other skills besides turning up, many times we would catch them cheating, in fact, once we knew something was up in the ceiling, when we checked it out later that night, we found one Cat5/e cut and spliced into two runs in the bar area. The following day the staff captain was informed and dealt with the problem and of course, we fixed it.

    Structured Cabling is a Technology

    Even pulling the cable now is a complex job with things that the ship engineers would find hard to understand like no zip tie’s the cable, loose lay cabling, and bundle max limits.

    All this along with the cruise ship’s extra requirements makes our consulting service a natural requirement for the network and safety of the ship. The days of just letting guys pull cable are gone, modern Cat6/7+ cables have to be treated like fiber during installation.

    Installing Network Cabling

    No longer is a cable, just a cable we now have so many high-quality Ethernet cables that need to be treated like fiber optics.

    So if you are thinking of installing any network cabling on your ship, think high quality or the system will be slow and full of errors.
