Default New "hand washing" policy

I forgot to mention in my Mariner review that they have a new method
for sanitizing your hands. Instead of the tiny amount of sanitizing gel that comes out of a dispenser by each restaurant...the staff is standing
at each and every restaurant, cafe, etc. with a container of sanitizing wipes. Everyone MUST take and use one if they're entering the restaurant. The wipes are a good size and I'm sure do a much better
job of having each of us clean our hands, and not spreading germs.

(Mariner 10/14/07)

Good job RCI!

Have you seen this system on other ships?

How do you dispose of the used ones? Is there a garbage can by the door?

Default Hand Washing

We did Liberty in August and there were no hand sanatizing dispensers to be found. We were very surprised.

Maybe there had been a problem on the Mariner, but I feel that
those large sized wipes had to be the best protection against
germs..and from bringing them into the buffet, dining room, etc.

Yes, there were trash cans at each entry to put used wipes in
immediately.
