Print shops on cruise ships.

If you live or work in downtown San Diego, you frequently see cruise ships docked at the B Street Terminal or Broadway Pier.  You might know that the larger ships hold around three thousand passengers.  And that guests enjoy daily newsletters and ever-changing lunch and dinner menus.  But did you know that cruise ships typically have their own fully-equipped print shop onboard?

Here’s an interesting article that details the unique challenges of working in a ship’s print shop.  How do you fix or repair equipment when you’re at sea, halfway around the world?  How do you deal with the listing of the ship, especially when the seas are rough?

Printers working on the high seas might have considerable challenges, but it’s on a cruise ship!  Can you beat that?
