Lauretta Kaerger, University of Florence, joined Eurofleets+ as an intern on a one-week cruise from Cádiz, Spain, to Portimão in Portugal on board the RV Belgica.
“Work and life on board were bound by a regular schedule. As we continuously recorded data for 24h the scientific crew worked all around the clock in a shift system of two 4h shifts per day per group. I had the 4-8 shifts (in the morning and the afternoon) which meant me waking up at 3.30 am and going to bed just after dinner at 8.30 pm.”
