Default New hire, need info


My son was just hired as a videographer for Princess Cruises. I am trying to help him out with the following questions, Any and all comments/suggestion would be very much appriciated.

He is Canadian. Does he need a C1-D U.S. seaman's visa?

What does he needs to bring, what shouldn't he bring. He wants to bring a high end digital camera and a laptop. good/bad idea?

What to expect workwise/time off wise.

He had a SCUBA ticket, but it has now expired. Is it easy to be recertified? Is it costly?

Is a videographer considered an officer or a crew member? What is the difference?

Any other suggestions or tips would be great! Thanks in advance

Default Your Sons in for a ride!

Well here are some answer to your questions:

Well its safe for your son to bring his Laptop and Camera as he will notice that without it he will be lost, those of us at sea find having the lap top arround much easier to go about!

He will be staff, their is a difference Crew = Waiters, Housekeeping, Bartenders etc. those depts. can't go to Pasenger areas as the clubs and Pizza or just walk arround the ship, us Staff can, we are the = Entertainment Dept. Singers, dancers, Musicians, AV Dept., Youth staff, Social Host. He will get to see even where we eat dinner we dont sit in the same dinning rooms again Crew, Staff, Officers

But your son being from canada will meet other canadains onboard and have a blast, he might get addicted as many of us do once we get a taste for the life at sea!

Hope this help!
