If you haven't found it already. . . Facebook is a great resource on learning about ship life. On my line right now, we're all totally addicted to it! Join and start searching the groups. Try seaching for 'crew bar' or 'casino' or 'pursers' or 'singers & dancers' . . . even just your cruise line or specific ships. I found my lines 'online crew bar' that has 1500 members and LOTS of photos. I even came across a cruise line jobs group. Connected with a couple people from my first contract in 2001 and even someone who'll I'll be working with in March!
This forum has gone a bit NCLA, and i just did a search and found a NCLA crew group - maybe a good place to find out what day to day ship life is like?? hmmm?
ya gotta join just for the "I love boat drill" group. and just came across the 'nothing finer than a Steiner' group (if you've been reading you're recent threads)
I joined the NCLA facebook groups a couple of weeks ago and find that there is no to very little activity on them. There are a bunch of NCL/NCLA/PoAAH MySpace groups however which seem to have more members and are more activerly participated in by group members.
FACEBOOK - I don't recall seeing any facebook NCL groups, though I guess I could alt-tab over and log on but.... I like MySpace more, but I haven't looked for groups in awhile! Just wondering who is reading these - if your from NCL 1998-2001 hit me up
