I’ve always wanted to go on a “behind the scenes” tour of a floating city (AKA cruise ship) but until now, for whatever reason, just haven’t.
Let me tell you, best value for money ever! (Although I must admit I had the good fortune to be a guest of Travelat60 on-board the majestic Celebrity Solstice that whisked us away from Hobart to Auckland.)
When tour day arrived, I headed off, official lanyard round my neck with fingers crossed that the Captain would offer me the chance to steer the ship!
For two mindboggling hours we learnt the ins and outs of how 1,250 officers and crew deliver a safe and memorable holiday/cruise for 2,800 passengers. (A really tough call at times).
From the Bridge, Engine Room, Laundry, Galleys, Restaurants, Environment and Recycling, and of course the astronomical amount of food and alcohol purchased, was explained in detail. Absolutely riveting information.
