Is there a way to work as a masseur on a cruise ship, except through Steiner’s company?
I’m asking because first of all they take 1500 euros for ‘training’, then, when you get on a ship, you have to chase people to go to a massage, then do it, and eventually try to sell them the products.
I don’t mind paying, but wouldn’t like to chase people and to sell products like an animator and salesman in one.
It’s not the job of a massage therapist.
i know this is an old thread but i have been accepted for Steiner as a massage therapist, you dont need to pay money for training at all(elemis techniques and treatments etc) , that is free, you just have to pay for medical, police check, uniforms etc, which is what the moneys for and will help you on your way..
Also think about cruises, people wanna have fun and relax, the massage slots will be packed with massages!!! You wont have time to run around after people, i had an info pack with the intervew, can be 12-14hours a day of massage/wraps constantly!
Sorry if you have a job now but thought id write for anyone else who wanted to know

Steiners controls 99% of the cruise market. Even the companies that have other names on ships are owned by Steiner. Don't fight it if you want to work on a ship - go with Stiener.
It can be a lot of hard work, but try to get on a smaller ship and you won't be as busy. (make less money, though). Some ships have different policies for their therapists, putting a cap on how many sessions they can do a day.
