Scientific berthing layout
Sally Ride has berthing for twenty-five scientists. Two of these berths are reserved for Scripps marine technicians who sail aboard every cruise, and are included as members of the science party. The remaining twenty-three scientist berths are assignable by the Chief Scientist for members of the science party.
Berthing for scientists is accommodated primarily on the fo'c'sle deck (one deck above the main deck), where there are bunks for twenty scientists in double-occupancy rooms. All rooms share a head with an adjacent 2-person stateroom, except for the Chief Scientist Stateroom, which has its own head.
Additional berthing for three scientists is available on the main deck, in a large three-person stateroom designed to accommodate wheelchair access. This room has a bunk bed plus a single bed, and has its own large head.
R/V Sally Ride's marine technicians are berthed in a two-person stateroom on the 01 deck.
