Default Security??

Hi Guys

Me and my husband work in the security industry in Ireland and want to work in same on a cruise ship. We got married last November and we're dying for a change. He is 32 and I'm 27 and we work for the same company in Ireland.

If we were able to get a job on a cruise ship would we get a cabin together without having to share with other people?

Is the position of security officer a good one to have on a ship?

Does it give you time off in port etc?

I'd appreciate any help.

After 5 years on ships - I don't think I've seen anyone other than Filipinos or Nepalese people in security guard positions. The head security officer is usually a Brit . . . . and almost always ex-Navy. This might be different for smaller or regional cruise lines?

But to the married question - generally if you're hired in the same department, you may be cabin'ed together as each division gets an allotment of cabins. If you're in different departments, it's more difficult, but not impossible. If one of the couple has a position that rates a single occupancy cabin, then not really an issue. Don't forget that most two person cabins have very, very narrow bunk beds!

I don't think I've ever seen a security guard 'off' in port. Port time, I would think, is the time when security is needed the most and . . . 'all hands on deck'

From what I've seen, the most 'couple-friendly' departments on board are casinos and entertainment

Thanks a mill for your help. Not too worried about the bed situation as you can always find ways around that - excect if your if different cabins!

Think might be an idea to look at a different job
