The $1 million shopping delivery

Home/Cruise video/The $1 million shopping delivery


Ever wondered what happens after you have disembarked your ship at the end of a cruise, or what’s going on while you are waiting to board?
This short video gives a glimpse into just some of the activities taking place on the biggest cruise ship in the world during turnaround day in Fort Lauderdale.
While an army of stateroom attendants cleans the cabins, a fleet of trucks delivers a million dollars’ worth of food and drink to the quayside and a small armada of forklifts puts everything on board – amazingly in these high-tech, health and safety-obsessed days, employing a makeshift platform constructed from left-over pallets.
All for one week’s cruise to the Caribbean on Allure of the Seas. Watch and learn, and then forget about it until you wonder why they never seem to run out of lobster tails or Sapphire Martinis.
