My son spent 5 weeks at PP (waiting for his MMD card the last 2 weeks) and now he is on the Pride of Aloha. He has not yet had a drug test but says they are totally random. He knows some people that have been tested 2 weeks in a row and others like himself that haven't had one yet. He also knows people that have gotten sent home so they take their drug-free policy seriously.
Well, not that I am a heavy drinker, but still I am interested... what exactly is the alcohol policy at NCL? Limited to a certain amount of drinks per evening or do people get to take their own responsibility as long as they show up fresh and sober on the job the next morning?
There is a zero tolerance policy towards watchkeeping personell and senior management (Captain, Staff Captain, Ch Eng, Jr Chief Eng and Hotel Director)
For other crew off duty there is a limit of 0.02 (which is practically zero) When I was in NCL this policy were thoroughly followed up with regularly testing. It's been 4 years since I left, so I don't know if it has become more relaxed or what.
hehe, thanks MRmate... so at all times, either on or off duty, you gotta be able to drive a car??? That the general idea? Not too bad I guess, at least it prevents people from getting either annoying, or alcoholics on board
