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."

    What's the difference between emo and goth? :confused I wouldn't know I'm awful when it comes to stereotypes although mean girls and the DUFF have been very educational.  My style is meeeeee :love the style that always changes. But I have always been an outcast, so I'd rather just be a loner or something.
