Just how much experience do you need to make cruise staff?
Im not applying yet but by the time i do i should have achieved this.
BTEC National diploma in travel and tourism,
summer work as a holiday rep,
Part of guest dance troupe on MSC Armonia,
Fluent english obviously,
and various other stage expierience,
plus 11 GCSE grades C and above
It may not sound like much do you think this would be enough?
Ive tried doing research but cant find anything on it.
Also is there a kind of stereotypical 'Look' that they go for in this position, it may sound silly but alot of jobs are largely based on your appearence.
