I think it was to hide it from the inspectors.

After reading all four of DCL's most recent reports and that of silver sea…

Silver Sea failed because food should NEVER be stored outside of food storage areas(i.e. not in crew cabins)
They also had clean utensils hanging near hand washing stations allowing for contamination.
incorrect or missing food temperature log information
allowing possible insect contamination
many undocumented crew illnesses(they are supposed to report illnesses after a certain amount and cross check with possible food born illnesses)
and not performing additional cleaning due to increased illness

not these are all items that are there to protect the ship from an illness outbreak, however it is a bit nitpick, most land based restaurants would fail these tests. Ships are held to a higher standard due to the close proximity with other passengers.

DCL's major issue(Magic and Wonder) was corroded paint allowing for buildup of mild/bacteria and one soiled spoon in a clean spoon bin. If I had to guess that spoon had been washed(sanitized) and was 100% not contaminated, but there was dried on food. I can assure everyone that once dishes are sent through the machine, they are clean clean clean, in a sanitary sense, but they may not be clean in an aesthetic sense.

I can understand this cause the heat they use nothing at all could live through that!!
