Thanks for the response! That is definitely one of the main reasons why I am determined to work on a cruise ship in a shop ... getting to see all the ports. I am assuming that you can get off the boat and do whatever when in these ports?
Also, what do you mean by stay under the radar? It seems like having a position as a sales associate is a good one which will allow you to experience the ports and have a wonderful experience elsewhere. Of course, there is hard work but the benefits seem to be worth it.
