Hi there im from the UK about to have an interview with a large cruise liner company in London as a massage therapist ( as i have recently qualified in holistic therapies) i am hoping to get in touch with anyone who has worked within the health and beauty departments on board cruise ships (steiner transocean based in Flordia) id really like to find out what it is like on board, working conditions and pay you received, its really hard to get this sort of information out of companies before you go for an interview, id really appreciate your help and any tips for the interview process (heard its quite grueling) .. thanks richie
It works like this - you will get about $15 to $20 for every massage you do - expect to be booked for as many a day as they can give you. (4 to 8 per day is common). Massages are 50 minutes, with 10 minutes off.
You will be required to "push product" as in recommending to every customer you treat that they spend up to or over $100 on various detox treatments to take home, lotions, gels, shampoo, whatever...
You will share a cabin, you will do a lot of drinking in the crew bar, you will get some port days off, you will work like a dog on sea days.
Contracts are usually in the 6-month range.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
I am ridwan hamid .i like job cruiseship this certifikat standar imo.
