Franny,

I worked on ships for four years. It is awesome! I recommend the following agencies to help you.

http://www.cast-a-way.com/ or http://www.c-deck.com/jobs/index.html

But, agencies are the way to go to get on ships. I used one to get my second job on the QE2, but it cost me a finder's fee of over 500 US. I have heard of other agents that take a cut every pay period. Not good.

The two that I list above, get the cruise lines to pay them to bring good candidates. I worked with the first agency a while back and they got me interviews with Disney. However, I chose to go to grad school instead. But, someday I will return to ships...it gets in the blood and won't go away. :-)

If you have questions, let me know.

Cheers,

Norm
