Default Best Cruise line to be a DJ

Just curious to know which Cruise has the best pay for a Dj, and I guess the best lifestyle, maybe single cabin? Thanks in advance! 8)

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.

In general I think the smaller ships are better no matter what position you're in.
