Default Adventure Ocean/ Teen Clubs

I was wondering if anyone could give me some info about becoming a teen host onboard a ship? Currently I am in high school and am defiantly going onto college in Florida, at Florida Gulf Coast University. After college I wouldent mind working onboard a ship (Royal Caribbean) for one term (5 or 6 months) just for the experiance. Am I crazy for thinking this? I only want to work one term, then go back to school- so is this even realistic? My college major will be travel/resort management.

How is life onboard for youth staff?
Will the fun wear off in 2 weeks?
How old do you have to be to work onboard?
Can I sign up for a shorter term?
Whats the pay?

Please note this is in anyway NOT a carrer dream, just something to do because it seems fun and for the experiance. Hope I get some input...

Hey Dan...

Read through the messages here to find great information on what it is like, and how to apply. Since you work for me, once you are ready to apply send me an email and I will write a letter of recommendation for you.

NOTE: this is only for DAN since he does work for ME, he is the editor of our teen area here in CruiseMates.

Paul-
Thanks... I would really apperciate it if you could do that for me, I still have 5/6 years until I can do this, but I am eager to start working with cruiselines and stuff like that. I am basically counting the days until college and I can start my major...

In the meantime I could write a really awesome article about the day in the life of a teen host onboard a ship, where I would follow a host for a day/week and write a diary/article about it? Didnt Kuki do this with the butler service on Celebrity?

Thanks for your help!

Yes, our Kuki did work as a butler for a day. It was on a cruise which he of course paid for, but he volunteered to be a butler just to see what it was like. A pretty funny story.

If you have 4 or 5 years you don't need to be concerned about applying or anytihng now. Most cruise lines only look a month ahead, not years.

Teen hosts often DO have some experience as camp counselors, etc. But as I said, it is really an "entry" staff position and a good resume, good grades and a clean employment record would be enough if you fit the bill. - and you are lucky to apply when they need one.
