On Holland America we would spend about 1-2 hours cleaning, folding, steaming, cleaning the brass, fixtures and so on.
On Carnival and Royal, it was a lot easier and a bit of a joke compared to Holland, would take no longer than 30mins-1hour.
The last day is the longest, you start at 9am and don't finish until anywhere from 11-12:30am on the busiest day, then have to get up the next day at between 6-7 to get stores on!!
That I don't miss, all the other stuff I do!
On what Holland america have be on and when?
By the description you gave i belive you have been on the Eurodam!
I was on the noordam and I can say that yes last night of the cruise is a little hell, but we never finish after 23:15 (dinner in the Lido
) and was at market place, so a lot of work and also a hole window to prepare.
I am now fight to go back, I miss so much, hope to get back as soon as possible.
