The living performances of crews and passengers in cabins have been less received attention, while Korea is a top leading country in ship building industry. To develop a high value added ships like 5-star cruisers, researches on the comfort and productivity in cabins should be carried out with urgent. The purpose of this study is to measure and analyze of the ship's indoor thermal conditions in spring, summer and winter, and also to compare the seasonal differences, of which conditions are supplied from and controlled by marine HVAC The temperature, humidity and air supply volume of 5 different needs of cabins on a training ship were measured through a year, which was launched at Dec 2005 and totally 246 crews can go on board for education. The following results were obtained : (1)Jn the spring, the temperature in cabins was measured as 20 - 25 t: and humidity was below 30%. (2)In the summer, the temperatures was controlled at 21-27t: in almost cabins and humidity was between 40 - 60% which is known as comfort conditions. (3)In the winter, temperature and humidity was maintained between 19~26℃, (Old humidity UXlS between 10 - 5O%. (4)]t is clear that the humidity conditions in cabins are not properly controlled at all through a year to satisfy the Comfort Standards provided by ASHRAE and/ or 15 0. In conclusion, humidification and dehumidification of cabins must be treated with importance for more comfort. living and working environments for crews and passengers.
