Ship Maintenance

Stacks Image 164

All day long, and often into the evening, aboard the ship or alongside it in port, the maintenance crews are busy. Railings, walls, elevator buttons, stairs, windows, decks, and floors—even the exterior of the ship when in port—no part of the ship is left untended for long. Restorative and preventative maintenance never ends, but always seems to be needed all over again, because the salt air is very wearing on the ship's exterior and daily living by crew and passengers takes a toll on the interior.

The photos are just a small part of the work that goes on daily.
