Default Enchantment Stretching

I just had a thrilling excursion to Rotterdam, Holland where RCI's Enchantment of the Seas was cut in two, a 73' mid-section inserted. In the dry dock, I stood under the ship. There will be an article up shortly with photos of this amazing feat.

awesome.
i cant wait to see the ship afloat with the new midsection attached, it will definitly make a big difference to the ship, i bet she will put her sisters to shame when she docks beside them in the future.
but theres 1 things that confuses me though i know that when a ship is drydocked and refurbished, the crew stay onboard, but as enchantment is cut in 2 do the crew stay on board or are they sent to hotels during the operation due to the working hazards?????
