Working on a Cruise Ship (pg. 2)

Working on a Cruise Ship - The Downside

While working on a cruise ship sounds pretty great, just like any job, there are some downsides. Because the cruise ship you're working for is trying to keep up a certain reputation with its guests, you have to wear a uniform and make sure you look neat and tidy at all times. This means no piercings and no tattoos. Another thing that you might not realize is that while the ship is at sea, cruise ship peeps often work long hours (sometimes more than 12 in one day!). Sure, you get some time off to explore while the ship is docked, but you do have to be prepared to work hard while the ship has set sail.

Working on a Cruise Ship - How Much Bling?

So just how much can you make working on a cruise ship? Well, there are two different kinds of cruise ship employees - seasonal employees, who work just during the summer and full-time employees, who work four months on the ship, then get a five week break, then are back for four months, etc. A seasonal employee makes about $1400 US a month while a full-time employee makes between $1700 - $2200 US a month. On top of their monthly salary, all food, accommodation and airfare is paid for while cruise ship employees work on the boat.

Working on a Cruise Ship - Words of Wisdom

"The best advice I have for kids wanting to get into this when they're older is to get involved volunteering or working with youth and children in as many places as you can. It looks great on your resume and it gives you tons of experience."

    Umm...If she is the kind of girl that likes to talk a lot and tells everybody what is going on then the whole school will know when she finds out you like her.  I say who cares if the whole school knows you like her.  I like it if a boy tells me he likes me and ask me out.  I don't like boys trying to be sneaky coz they stink at it and end up looking stupid.  If you want to be sneaky about it you can ask her if she can help you with your homework or ask her if she wants to hang with you and your friends at the mall or you can look at her and smile and see if she smiles back at you.

    well, as a girl i know that i like it when boys are up front with there feelings. girls like to know that they can trust you to tell them the truth no matter who's watching you.  that may show that you really do like her. if you need to do it privately, then mabey if you do any after school activities and she does then ask her then. jojo(:
