In Disney, Crew uniforms are referred to as - "Costumes". And Disney provides them. But, you may want to consider including a few long sleeves; a few slacks; black shoes; plain white rubber shoes / sneakers aside from your undershirts; underwears for outdoor activities. Also, Disney is strict with onboard Dress Code. Purchased Alcohol / Spirits; sodas; cigarettes in the Crew Bar; and all purchases you shall make in the Crew Shop onboard either the DISNEY MAGIC / DISNEY WONDER are charged to your Crew Card, which in turn, shall be deducted automatically from your salary (15th and 30th of each month). Only purchases made ashore shall come from your personal funds. By the way, personal necessities like toothbrush; bath and laundry soap; toothpaste; etc. may be purchased onboard the Crew Shop.
In Disney, normally 2 Crew share a cabin with a double deck (2 bunk beds); a toilet / bathroom; a personal size ref and a TV with a built-in VHS player / recorder. If you both weigh between 165 - 165 lbs each, you'll manage to go about the room which is reasonably small. From the toilet to your bunk beds is like 3 - 5 steps. The bed is approx. 1 meter wide and 6 feet long. Cabin inspections by the Staff Capt.; etc. is carried-out once a week. Also, sanitation and cleanliness is a requirement onboard the 2 Disney ships and the standards are high. USPH rating of 99% on the Disney Wonder is normal, so you can just imagine what Disney expects from the Crew. During Cabin inspections, don't be surprised if the Staff Captain checks every inch of your cabin ... including in and out of your refs. I should know, I've worked 5 contracts with Disney Cruise Line. I would assume that Carnival maintains the same standards. If you play your cards right always, then ... you'll be fine. Good Luck, Mates!
also, if its not to much trouble, any chance of posting a few pics on this site, of staff partys, staff pool, cabins and anything else of intrest, im sure heaps of people would get a kick out of seeing behind the scenes,
When I first started out onboard the Disney Magic, I was a Hotel Stores Steward. I was later promoted to Hotel Stores Asst. Manager ( Provisions) onboard the Disney Wonder. Sorry about the photos ... all my photos are enlarged, mounted and framed - over 100 of them. Afterall, in 14 years of working onboard various Luxury Liners ... I was lucky enough to see and visit quite a few countries (87 only). Parties onboard the two Disney ships are quite frequent... almost every week. Nowadays, Crew Cabins onboard any Cruise Ship are not very spacious like the Suites for the Guests. So, if you are over 225 lbs. and over 6 ft. tall, you might find it quite difficult to move around your cabin. In the meantime, pray that your roommate won't be bigger, if not taller than you. Good Luck, Mate! hahahaha!!!!
