When Sovereign of the Seas was in drydock at Freeport for its major refit, only about 10% of the workers came from the yard. Instead about 90% of the work was done by contractors who were specialists in their areas. The line had more than 500 containers of supplies shipped in from Europe for the project, and at the height of the work, there were 1,600 contractors onboard the ship at the same time in Freeport.

There was a conversation some time back that many of the "contractors" were actually the crew themselves that were required to pitch in and help.
