Cleaning All Those Windows

Good morning,

I'm back on the Royal Promenade with my camera again today.  It is a port day so most guests have gone ashore.

Can you see that orange high lift equipment in the center of the above image?
That is the piece of equipment that is used to clean the inside of the ship and the windows of the staterooms overlooking the Royal Promenade.
It's quite a process to keep this ship so clean, shiny, and ship shape all the time. 

It's a constant process and so fascinating to see.

Best,
Lois

LOL! It amazes me, Lois, how you can find unlimited places and things to cover on that ship!!! To be honest, I have wondered how they keep everything so clean with all those people.

The things we don't normally think about when we go on a cruise, not that I have ever been on one. A pleasure I have yet to experience. What a monumental task. Very interesting, thanks Lois.

That answers one of my unasked questions: how in the world do they clean all those windows? Now I know! LOL

It is almost unbelievable that this sumptuous promenade is on board a ship...

Lois, when those guys are finished window cleaning, could you send them our way as this is a chore I dislike and have nowhere near as many to clean.

Great shots, Lois. I wondered how they kept those windows spic and span!

Lois said...

I would not want that job!

Keeping all those windows clean on that ship would be a house keepers nightmere!! I can't even keep our 28 windows clean. Not my favorite job....debbie
