Default All inclusive resorts hygiene question

I noticed what I think might be a major sanitizing problem at these all inclusive resorts. Seems like the bars all keep one sink filled with soapy water and one sink filled with clean water. One or 2 dips soapy water and a quick dip in clean water and they are restocked to use again. Just wondering is this gross or what. Just finished a vacation in the Caribbean and wife went on a trip to Jamaica recently and both places did this

Common practice in the USA, also. It's not just soap in the sinks. It's a chemical sanitizer and perfectly acceptable when done properly.

Ever wonder why some cruise ships have incidents of ship wide sicknesses?

Get stronger drinks. Alcohol kills germs.

I would fail a health inspection here doing that. I am in CA. Truthfully, I think it really is a Fed Standard for food safety though.

The rule for here is if you do not have an automatic dishwasher, you must have a 3 compartment sink.

You soak and wash with soap in 1st sink. You rinse in 2nd sink. You soak in sanitizer for specified time in 3rd sink. Air dry.

Typically, in the USA three sinks are used. Soapy water, clear rinse and sanitizer. In order for the sanitizer to be effective there is a time component of the amount of time the glassware is exposed to the sanitizer. Most of the time, bartenders just dip the glassware and put it on the drainboard.

I have seen hi speed (8 minutes or so) steam dishwashers for bar glasses in bars in england and France.

the us 3 sink dip is unsanitary in my opinion. I dont drink in a bar less its from plastic cups/glasses.

I have also seen the Evian "pure water jug"c that sits on the bar to provide water for your drink filled at sunrise from a water hose in Jamacia.

So would you call Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa Bay, or Charleston shitholes? All of these cities home port cruise ships and they ALL follow strict environmental and health standards.

please show me a modern crusie ship with a "home" port (hailing port) in the US. The SS United States was the last US flagged cruise ship.

Y'all are confusing "Home Port" with "Port of Registry".

A “Homeport” is where the ship loads and unloads passengers. Just because the back of the cruise ship says Panama or Malta (what the ship is flagged for) doesn’t mean that is where their “homeport” is. In fact, both Carnival and Royal Caribbean has their home offices in Miami.

For arguments sake, let’s say they were homeported in Malta. The ship would still be subject to local and federal regulations.
