Day 8 (Monday 13 Sept) The Joides runs so well because of the fabulous staff on the Bridge, in Engineering, on the Rig Floor, in the Galley, in IT, and in the Science Labs. Everyone is patient, supportive, curious, hardworking, and interesting! The ship is like a small city with generators, water desalination plant, waste management, and other infrastructure. There is a welding shop, a storage center, a gym, and a small cinema. I have yet to find the spa though…oh wrong kind of ship!
