I have been offered a position as a computer Officer aboard a Princess ship and am wondering what the work hours are like for a computer officer and how often they would get to disenbark. Also if anyone has information on what type of cabin would be assigned.
I have a friend who is Asst. Computer Officer at princess... he asaid that the working hours was from 7:30am to 7:30pm, there will be 3 hrs break.... for the cabin he doesn't have any cabinmates or roommates....
As an officer your accommodations will be slightly larger than most, but it will not be huge, and you will probably not have to share a cabin. You will have a set watch and have time off to disembark but you will also be on call at all times.
Much of your duties are determined on what systems you will be responsible for. POS, navigational, engineering, fire control, etc. POS is more of a corporate responsibility while the others are crew responsibility.
Take care and enjoy your time onboard.

Privledges for computer officers vary widely from line to line, so you'll have to ask whomever hired you for the specifics (or ask for an e-mail address to communicate with a current computer officer with your questions). Write me directly if you have specific questions. I'll be curious to hear what you find out about Princess.
