I have worked on several cruise ships - so don't forget that in addition to free room & board they also get full medical and dental coverage and have to pay no utility bills.

When you subtract you mortgage, monthly food allotment, utility bills, medical insurance and dentist costs, I dare say some of us here barely make $1500/month in pure profit for a rainy day.

I just think characterizing foreign cruise ship workers as "slave labor" is insane - and anytime I see a cruise industry critic do it (Ross Klein?) I can't help but dismiss everything they say - they obviously really knowing nothing about the cruise industry.
