A CREW member on a luxury cruise ship gave a glimpse of life on the massive ship… and it’s not nearly as glamorous as you’d think.
In a clip uploaded to her TikTok, Melie showed viewers her routine, which includes washing and vacuuming her cabin.
The TikToker woman was only able to get hold of a roll of toilet paper from the pantry.
In the short video, she said: “I’m going to show you guys the least glamorous part of being a crew member on a cruise ship.
“I have to do laundry like this. Two decks below sea level we have our very glamorous crew laundry.
“Complete with washing machines, dryers and ironing stations. Downstairs in the same area we can also get cleaning supplies and fresh linens.
“I managed to get a roll of toilet paper and the vacuum cleaner, so now I can tidy up my cabin for about ten minutes and then I’ll bring it back.
“Usually while my clothes are in the wash, I grab a few supplies to clean my cabin and then it’s time to put my clothes in the dryer.

“While waiting for my clothes to dry, I go to the incinerator to throw out my garbage.
“And after all that washing and cleaning I’ve got an appetite, so I’m off to our very chic and elegant staff fair.
“Today they had a special breakfast for dinner, so this was my Michelin-starred gourmet meal.”
After dinner, Melie went to her office to do some work
She concluded: “And this is a typical day in my life as a crew member, it’s not just beach days. Unfortunately, we still have chores to do and try to fit them into our schedules whenever we have some free time.”
Other TikTokers were quick to comment on the behind-the-scenes footage.
One person asked, “Do you have to pay for the laundry?”
To which the cruise employee said, “No, we can use the machines for free.”
Another said: “All the way out to sea… and there’s a Henry Hoover.”
While a third said: “I used to pay someone to clean my cabin which was really helpful.”
