Default Re: NCL drug screening

Could this be paraphrased as "Would there be a problem with me going to train/work on a cruise ship with unprescribed mind-altering drugs in my bloodstream?"

If so then the answer is probably yes.

If not, then why do you want to know?

When I was in NCL I always took a drug test together with my medical. In addition unannounced drugtests onboard are very common.

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

Well.. I'm not saying wild parties are non-existing, but everyone are fully aware of the consequenses if busted.

The other reason is that everyone should be able to deal with any emergency at all times.

II guess you figure things out when you get onboard. I hope you'll have a great time. I know I did, and I truly miss those NCL days
