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."

    It's important to think about why you are wanting to wear the makeup. If you are wanting it to impress someone, then chances are makeup is not the solution. When you are in middle school the need to impress escalates greatly. You do not always need to impress people with your looks. Impress them with your mind, blow them away with how good you are in a certain topic or how fast you read your assigned readings. Being pretty is something everyone strives to be, but how about being pretty smart, pretty funny, pretty kind, pretty helpful. There's all kinds of pretty. Now, if you are doing your makeup because it's fun and something you enjoy doing then by all means do it. Makeup can be an art, no matter what people say. I have many friends who's general art skills have increased because they can do their winged eyeliner perfectly, or their contour is just right. The point to all this is simple. Do the makeup for you, not for others. Please talk to your mom respectively about the topic and see if she changes her mind, and please do not be discouraged if she doesn't.  I hope this helps.
