As I prepare to take a trans-Atlantic voyage on the Queen Mary 2 later this year, I thought I’d share this fun fact: Some thirty million people will take cruises this year worldwide (I should note that Atlantic crossings are not technically “cruises” since, by definition, a cruise ship stops at various ports of call along the way).

With only 365 cruise ships to accommodate them, operators are cutting turn-around time. In one case, a ship’s 856 crew members had just four hours to clean 1,052 staterooms, and less than nine hours to transfer 8,000 pieces of luggage and load 350 pallets of provisions.
