Just sitting here thinking of the cruise lines -- and the employees that work on them. I wish they would have an article -- or show about 'living on the cruise ship' for the employees just out of curiosity. I don't know how they can work 10 hours a day 7 days a week for 8 months at a time and still have such a wonderful disposition! I don't think I could do it. I love my cruises -- but also enjoy land life too! Guess you have to be a special person to work on the ships. Anyone know the pay rate of these people? To be away from their home and family for so long, they must pay well??
