The yacht stewardess, who wished to remain anonymous, shared some « interesting facts about luxury yachts » including some of the most opulent designs and most extravagant items on board. She explained: « The number one is that I worked on yachts where we had over 20 TVs. »
Out of those 20 TVs, around 10 or 15 « have to be on the whole time ». Every morning, a stewardess has to go through each TV and « choose a different channel for each room ».
Some TVs, however, are placed in the « weirdest spots » such as the bathroom, « so people can watch it while they use the toilet » or « literally in the swimming pool – it’s incredible ».
Another interesting fact about working and living on a yacht is that there are mini fridges « everywhere ».
« And it’s our job to make sure they are always full and they are filled with the owner’s favorite food and drinks, » the stewardess explained.
Another fun fact is that « no one can board the yacht with shoes on, not even the owners ».
The crew member explained that they « technically come on board with shoes on, but we always ask them politely to take them off ».
« We have a basket for the shoes or we can take them to their cabins. » It is strictly prohibited for crew members or guests to wear shoes inside the yacht or outside, on the deck.
The yacht crew, for instance, have special shoes « we can only wear on the boat », and this is to avoid damaging the deck.
The stewardess also commented that she « would never work » on one of the most famous superyachts in the world and revealed why.
The Dilbar is a very well-known yacht in the industry as it’s the sixth biggest yacht in the world. « It’s enormous and very impressive, » she explained.
The yacht has 96 crew members on board and it cost $800million (£632million).
« That means that every year, the owners spend $8million (£6million) in just maintenance, » the stewardess revealed.
The yacht can host up to 40 guests, so it has a capacity of around 120 people, and it belongs to a Russian family.
The luxury stewardess explained that it is not « a yacht where I would work » because of the number of crew members on board.
Living and working with other members of the crew can sometimes be difficult as they spend « literally 24/7 together ».
On top of that, the Russian boat reportedly has over 1,000 cushions decorating the cabins and for stewardesses, « this is a massive headache and especially for whoever is on laundry shift! » she explained.
