Yesterday I announced that we will begin regularly featuring photos and videos from crew members of the conditions which they face working on cruise ships.
There was a spirited debate which followed on our Facebook page about the issue.
One cruise passenger commented: " No one forces these people to work on the cruise ships. So if they have complaints, get another job!!"
It seems that some passengers could care less about the crew members or the working conditions which they face.
Other passengers, and even a few crew members, disputed the authenticity of the photos, or thought that they were staged or exaggerated.
Here are some more photos, of what a pot wash looks like. One photo is of the mess. Another photo of a greasy pan that needs cleaning. Its hard, hard work for very little money. Long hours are the norm.
Stay tuned for more photos and some videos. Many crew members are sending images of what "ship life" is really like.
