No not "jumping ship" just curious really, I hear lots of stories in the differences in the treatment between the 2 companies I just wanted to know the difference. I personnelly am onboard I/S so I guess I would want to know the comparison of the I/S managers.....

From what I've heard Carnival IS is treated poorly. I heard this from someone in IS on NCL. I think he mentioned that you don't have untimed internet access - is that true?

Can't help you as I'm not on ships. Actually I'm considering your position in the future once I get a degree. Are your from the US? How many stripes do you have?

I was I/S Manager with Carnival for a long time. You have internet, they use websense to block a lot of ****. They tell you they run reports, blah blah, I never got busted for anything though. Know some people that did. Pay sucks compared to NCL, 3k a month to start. Not many raises. Share a room for awhile. All in all it's ok, but rules have been getting much stricter over the years. E-mail me for any more questions...

wouldn't say Carnival treat you poorly.
I have been a purser for 3 years and love it.

I heard RCCL is a bit more strict.

I use the email in the office so its unlimitted for me :o) but for internet you have to buy a card $20, give you about 90mins I think...not really sure as I don't use it much.

rules are getting bad, but i believe CCL is a little more slacker with crew than other cruiselines.
