Joe, have you ever had gastro, or other such stomach bug? Have you ever had it at sea and ruined your vacation? If you have, you'll understand why the cruise staff is always cleaning, especially things we touch. That's the best way to pass on germs to each other, by hand. And in an enclosed environment like a ship, germs travel FAST!

Donna is right. My DH has been quite sick on a ship to the point where he had to be taken to a hospital. We had to abort the cruise half way through. Spoiled the trip for both of us.

My 25 year old daughter was sick on the Monarch and I tell you she was just miserable. We were quarantined to our cabin. The doctor told us she probably picked it up by touching a rail or something and it was unusual for someone so young to get sick. She is always paranoid about germs and washes her hands constantly anyway and never touches bathroom doors with her hands. My daughter said she had never felt that ill ever and she has been sick alot. Thankfully the staff does clean as much as they do or more of us would get sick.

Along with that, the Ship gets inspected very often, especially after an outbreak of a virus. So, for that reason,too, it's also kept clean and painted and sanitized and scrubbed, etc. On the Caribbean Princess, there was even a soap station on the wall for cruisers to use before handling the utensils, or to wash their hands afterwards -in the Horizon Buffet.

Plus, although it must seem like endless cleaning, the Cruisers enjoy a beautifully clean ship. It's like a 5 star hotel!!
