I've been working onboard Luxury Liners since 1990. I've never known a man or woman denied a job for being 190 lbs. On the contrary, most guys that I know for a fact who weighed over 250 lbs. were even the Executive Chefs. Now things would probably be a bit different if the applicant weighed close to a ton and would be over 8 feet tall. Seriously, if you're qualified and are in perfect health ... I see no problem.
