Carnival is a party ship and the club is usually packed... the pay is not very competive to say Princess, but a decent company to work for.
RCCL pays a bit more than carnival. A very nice comoany to work for as a DJ
Depends on what you are looking for. As a DJ you are working most nights later than most, so your shipboard life isn't that spectacular. I usually say the best ship is a small luxury one that is traveling the world. The disco will shut down early, you don't work as hard, and you see the world.
The pay may not be so great, but the lifestyle is much better.
Personally, working as a stage manager on both kinds of ships (big repeat Caribbean criisers, and small lux vessels that went everywhere) I prefer the small ships.
deff Royal Caribbean. Larger clubs, better sound and lighting systems, better pay,.......
