The 6,600 passengers on board the world's largest cruise ship produce a lot of trash. We went inside the secret, crew-only deck of Royal Caribbean's Symphony of the Seas to see how crews process millions of pounds of water, food, and dry waste each year.MORE TRANSPORTATION CONTENT:How The World's Largest Cruise Ship Makes 30,000 Meals Every Dayhttps://youtu.be/R2vXbFp5C9oInside Emirates’ Newest And Most Luxurious First-Class Suitehttps://youtu.be/1_7rYbMeVQcWhat It Takes To Be A Cruise Ship Performerhttps://youtu.be/LaUHzjcuqMk--....-------------------- #Waste #BusinessInsiderBusiness Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, retail, and more.Visit us at: https://www.businessinsider.comSubscribe: https://www.youtube.com/user/businessinsiderBI on Facebook: https://read.bi/2xOcEcjBI on Instagram: https://read.bi/2Q2D29TBI on Twitter: https://read.bi/2xCnzGFBI on Amazon Prime: http://read.bi/PrimeVideo-----....-------------------- Waste Is Dealt With On The World's Largest Cruise Ship
