Expect the pay to be $400 to $700/week, depending on what cruise line, length in position, experience, etc. I doesn't sound like much, but remember you have no expenses.

RCCL starts you at $2300 a month as a Asst Systems Manager.I think thats really good especailly if you are on the big ships where there are three Asst Systems Manager and 1 It Operations manager.The previlages with RCCL in this position is fantastic.And there is an ever growing need for new employees in this field.

happy sailing
Joe

$2300/month is in the ballpark I said, at $575/week. (upper range).

It actually is a good job if you want to save money, because you have no expenses. Here is the trade-off however, you are on Carnival which is a great company to work for (good health care, nice cabins, etc), but the ships don't vary their itinararies much. I would personally take a lower pay but get on a luxury ship that goes all over the world. But that is me.

I think I agree with you about the itineraries. So the luxury ships pay less?

oh, and sorry about that. i didnt clarify my other post. what i meant was how much does IT operations manager make as opposed to asst. It manager.

IT jobs onboard vary by position and rank.
Salary is different with each line as well as the privileges and restrictions.

Going by my old intel, as I went shoreside ages ago..

Princess was the lowest in pay for the big lines, but heard from one of the guys that jumped ship at my company that isn't the same anymore.
Carnival starts at about 2700 or so a month
HAL 3200
Oceania 4500-5K
Disney 5K
Seabourn about 4-5K depending on exchange rate (paid in Sterling), was the same for Cunard except Princess runs that show now.
NCL pays the highest, if you survive the 1st contract at 2400ish and goes to 7200 or 7800

Some ships have 1 to 4 I/S Mgrs/Systems Mgrs/CSO's. On many lines that have exotic runs, don't count on getting off ship much w/o Staff Capt, Ch Eng or Ch Elec approval. On your bulk carribean buffet ships jump off to your hearts content almost, especially if you're 'hotel' IT.

I'd recommend doing 2 or 3 years and bank it all. Covers college and mortgages nicely. Usually the lines will also pay for successful cert exams and may have cbt's onboard. So you can build a foundation for a good life on land or become a post in the crewbar with no future.

I wonder what the going rate is now?? It was quite good when I was onboard. And yes NCL paid the SysMgrs the highest salary compared to the other lines. Of course back then NCL was not owned by Star and most of the ships, except the Sky ran with only 1 SysMgr. The Sky, of which I was on, was the first to invoke the Asst. SysMgr. I went through two of them right off, the first not being a "good fit" so I replaced him. They were not paid the same wage nor had the same benefits as the SysMgrs (single cabin, 3 Stripe level) but at the time the wage was pretty damn good since there wasn't THAT much for them to do...
