I am a 20 year old who is interested in working on a cruise ship. I am looking to become a "staff" member. I have worked in a family business most of my life, and I feel that I can offer service and attention, which I feel is very important when working on a cruise line. My question is simple. What is it like to work on a cruise ship?
If you haven't already, post your question on the "Crewmembers" board on this site. Click on "People" in the yellow stripe above your post to find this area. They will be happy to tell you what working on a ship is like.
Good luck on your possible job!

I asked this question just last week on the Carnival Victory during an "Up Close and Personal" with the crew. Most of them got their job through the Carnival website.........they also said to look in the classifieds. I've never seen one but lo' and behold NCL is recruiting in the Atlanta area next week! I'd do what the other poster said and look at this web site, but do check the individual cruiselines web sites also.
