I spent last week in a hotel. Some thought I had there about housekeeping seem to apply to cruises as well.
When you first enter a room/cabin the bed is always made up picture perfect with extra pillows and often some sort of environmentalist encouragement (don't ask us to wash your sheets) or promotional material (buy our bedding). it makes a great first impression but in order to use the bed comfortably you have to clear pillows and put all the collateral paperwork aside. You head out to explore and housekeeping slips in and resets the room to the way you found it (though on a cruise they will hide the luggage pad.) Upon your return you then have to reset the room to it useful state. And so the dance goes through the week.
Meanwhile in the privy a different story is played out. The bathroom lacks any kind of closed storage so you slowly spread out across the counter and onto any other available surfaces from what ever sort of kit you have as the needs of the week dictate. When housekeeping does its thing the approach is different. Instead of bringing order from disorder they, hopefully, lift your items and clean underneath leaving the bathroom more or less they way they found it. Now I have had times when both hotel and cruise staff have sought to bring order from my vanity chaos, but those have been the exceptions that demonstrate the rule.
I understand there are reasons for these approaches, just one of those oddball observations.
