Default who to choose - princess of disney. got jobs with both!

hey everyone.,

ive actually past interviews for princess and disney cruise lines. i now have to decide who i wanna work for as both have offered contracts.

anyone worked for both of these cruises?

at the moment my thoughts are that disney working conditions are better, slighty better pay, better and newer ships with better facilities for crew (gym, pool, etc) , howver i hear theres heaps of kids on these cruises and a lot of the stuff cruise staff do are pretty broing as there aimed at familys.

were as on a lot of the princess cruises you get spring break crowd and more adults and the activites(espcially around the pool) are geared more towards the adults.


also, can emplyees gamble on the ship they work for???


love to hear pros and cons from anyone thats worked on one or the other or both.

thanks agian... this site has been so helpfull.

cheers

Paul

paulb,

I've worked 5 contracts for Disney, but never worked for Princess Cruise Lines. Disney offers better pay and crew conditions are probably slightly better. As DJ, you probably won't spend much time with kids coz the adults (called - Programmers) assigned to the various age brackets are tasked to do such activities. Anyways, sooner or later ... you'll have to make a decision. Hope you make the right one, Mate. Good Luck!!!

What's more important - a slightly better pay & conditions, or seeing the world? Work for Princess and you could move around to different ships and go all over the world (literally) - Disney cruises the same itinerary over and over. And for socializing you are going to find very very few single passengers on Disney - so your DJ job on Disney will be pretty quiet most of the time, I would think.

And NO, staff or crew cannot gamble on ships, but you can gamble in port & Disney goes to Nassau & other places with casinos.
