The ship’s complement of 626 crewmembers consisted of the captain and 5 other officers, plus 350 droids and 250 sentient crewers. The bulk of the organic crew served as stewards and engineers, with most of the remainder being involved in the on-board entertainment. A security detail of 20 troopers were also carried as supernumeraries. There were accommodations for 2,500 passengers, with standard facilities for 27 different species.
Standard staterooms had two berths, an en suite bathroom, and environmental controls that could be tailored to the needs of many different species. Depending on their location aboard the ship, these cost from 50 to 150 credits per night. Deluxe staterooms, with amenities including entertainment and refreshment areas, cost 250-450 credits, and there were also two top-line suites costing 1,000 credits apiece. During one stage of the ship’s career, these two suites were identified as the Imperial and Rapture.
The primary passenger area was the Lido Deck, which contained much of the standard accommodation (around 400 staterooms), plus the Grand Ballroom, the Grand Dining Room, and the Bistro, one of the ship’s three secondary dining rooms. The Lido Deck also housed a holovid library with two billion volumes, and the ship’s main nightclub, , which boasted a six-piece house glizband, the Graf-Spanners. A specialized nightclub for droids was open to both mechanical crewers and passengers’ servants, and there was a crew lounge, reserved for the liner’s sentient personnel.
Above the Lido Deck was the recreation deck, with fifteen gymnasiums, capable of catering to a wide variety of species, plus a six-lane, multi-gravity running track, a zero-g sauna, wallball courts and a slaf course. The ship also boasted 212 standard and 46 deluxe staterooms, two casinos and another secondary dining room on this level.
The uppermost of the public decks was the Bazaar Deck. This was the site of the two luxury suites, along with the Big Blue, the most prestigious of the on-board restaurants, and the Scorp Club, a relaxed, members-only nightclub. Other facilities on this deck included the 500-seat Estuan Theater, capable of hosting both holo and live performances, two shopping arcades and a more informal bazaar, plus meditation chambers, daycare, and a number of additional amenities and eateries. The Bazaar Deck also contained 224 standard and 36 deluxe staterooms.
Below the Lido Deck were the two credicruise decks, the Homthor and Welland decks. Each of these contained 448 standard staterooms and 86 deluxe, plus a small secondary dining room and three snack shops—without the need for impressive public areas, and the ceilings were much lower than the decks above. Below these was the engineering deck, containing the ship’s drive systems and most of the crew areas, plus the hangar bay. The Galleria Shop was also located on this craft.
For defense, the Golden Spray was equipped with 4 turbolaser batteries and deflector shields. It also has deck-mounted miniature turbolasers on the recreation deck, for passengers to enjoy space skeet and target shooting at asteroids.
