Just curious...what has life been like for all of you crewmembers who have moved on? What was your position on the ship, and what do you do now? Do you enjoy your current job more or less than your ship job?
I am currently working as Cruise Staff in Hawaii (going on 3rd contract soon) and although I don't plan on leaving anytime soon, I am beginning to wonder what I am going to do next.
I missed ship life too. Even though it's been 11 years since I got off, I still occasionally think about it But I know if I could go back on (don't think they'd hire me now, they want younger) it just wouldn't be the same.
I did 3 contracts and would have stayed, but hubby, boyfriend at the time, didn't want to go back on, he'd had enough.
So life changes and we move on.
Haven't been on a ship yet since, but we're going on a 3 day next month. I feel I'm going to want to go down to crew bar and knowing I can't and have to hang around the 'cones' instead will be weird!!! That's why I haven't gone on a cruise yet.
