The RRS Sir David Attenborough will have capacity to host 90 crew members on board at any given time in single occupancy cabins.

In order to make crew as comfortable as possible during life at sea, cabins are located as far from the bow of the ship in order to reduce the effects of the motion on sleep patterns and comfort. They are are also located away from sources of noise and vibration and have a high level of natural light by way of windows or portlights.

There is also a hospital on board should crew need medical attention.
