All of this needs to be done super-fast and pretending that all is well. Imagine that passengers have until 8:30 am to leave the cabin, and they only come out at this time, never come out before. The new passengers come (like the stampede) at 13h.
The Cruise ship Main Galley is responsible for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and the famous midnight buffet. The Galley never stops and works 24 hours a day. The dimension of the quantity of food which is produced on the Galley is enormous. The Main Galley is actually divided in several sections: Appetizers, Bakery, Hot line and Pastry.
