When I visited a few years ago I asked about care of the teak deck. They do not oil the wood with teak oil. It is simply cleaned and left as it is.

The luxury, I had no idea it was so beautiful. Thanks for letting us get a glimpse.

Yes, I noticed that but didn't think to ask about it. Is less protection required because the ship is no longer at sea, I wonder.

Cornflower

Parts are very grand and others surprisingly homely and unshowy reflecting the Queen and Prince Philip's taste and the fashion of the times. There is a grand piano (bolted to the deck) on which Noel Coward played, and a silver pantry in which every piece was cleaned every day, but the private apartments are a lot less fancy than what you might find on cruise ships, I should think.

I think it is more to do with one's particular idea about how to look after wood on a boat. One school of thought is for oiling while the other is "Never"! They are the Never category. I am the opposite but have found, over the years, I am in the minority.
