You can be sure all of the crew onboard want to be there, but when it comes to working let's be honest, yes the hours are long, but it is an easy life.

It isn't like you depend on each person you serve to tip and you are going to have bad streaks - you ALWAYS have a roof over your head, plenty of food, friends, fun and a steady paycheck (the cruise lines now give about the same amount every single cruise since tip collection is now pretty much standardized).

The hours may be long, but the life is easy - believe me.
You are the first person who has worked on a ship that I know of who has sait it's pretty easy. I find that interesting since so many people whine about how hard it is. Thanks for your prespective.
