However, I was incredulous at the state of the junior rates' accommodation which was included in our tour. The staircases and corridors were positively crabby and would never have passed muster in my day. My understanding is, (although I could be wrong!), that they have civvy cleaners. Whatever, the standards have slipped.
If you’re on about the ships company blocks next to the LH bar, I totally agree with you. I was put in one for a fortnight while on course, I refused to step foot in the “kitchenette” and spent 3 hours scrubbing out my room because it was so skanking. As for rounds, because of the civvy cleaner situation, we’d only be picked up for the state of our actual rooms, not the communal areas. But I suppose you get what you pay for- my Mrs is a cleaner in the dockyard in Pompey and complains to me about how they only do the bare minimum to get by when she wants to deep clean everything.
