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."

I feel like I am getting an anxiety attack everytime someone tries to talk to me (i have not been diagnosed with social anxiety)! They don't know how bad it is. People say that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Well, suicide is the light at the end. I have attempted suicide twice but I always chicken out. I need someone to kill me. Please. As someone who has friends who were suicidal, and having been suicidal at one point in my life, It's the other way around. The people who are suicidal don't often realize how selfish taking their own life will be, because of the suffering they're experiencing. More directly to your case, though, anxiety causes control-seeking behavior. The taking of ones' own life can be seen as a way to escape the feelings which hurt us, and so we seek to control the situiation by taking ourselves out of the equation. It's like someone who falls ill when they get anxious at school.They know that falling ill will get them out of school, so someone who is anxious can actually have a physical illness as a result of wanting to escape the situation which makes them feel that way. Suicide works a lot in the same way, it's just that instead of getting out of school, we're getting out of life.  The only difference is that the person who gets out of school gets to experience that relief of the anxiety going away, the return of normal breathing as they're able to finally clam down their body and their mind. They start to feel comfortable again. Someone who commits suicide gets none of this, as they'll never again feel anything. There's no possibility of that feeling of relief, there's no longer a person.  In my view, feeling nothing at all is worse than feeling pain. At least when you can feel, you have a chance of feeling better. Life is too, well, lively...especially in such a time like this. I mean, they're making phones which could make their own power for goodness sakes!
