Default Jobs for someone with a B.S. in Biology?

Next May, I will be graduating with a B.S. degree in Biology. Are there any cruise ship jobs that require the possession of a Biology (or similar science) degree as a pre-requisite? How much do they pay?
Thanks...

Can't think of any.

It's basically a floating hotel. Housekeeping, food & beverage, hotel management/financial operations, facilities management and entertainment. On the marine side - maritime operations and tradesmen.

actually - just thought of one.

If you have any background with kids/teaching . . . and certified in CPR/First Aid - the youth staff program.

Ballpark $1600-1800/mo plus tips -

Youth Staff members coordinate, implement and encourage participation in a wide array of fun and interesting onboard activities for children ages 2 to 17 usually divided by age groups. Activities can include games, contests, scavenger hunts, sports and fitness instruction, arts & crafts and kids parties. They also provide supervision in designated areas while parents are enjoying activities. Children are to be supervised by Youth Staff at all times as well as ensure the overall safety of the Youth Program. Youth Staff may also be required to occasionally assist with Cruise Staff Activities.

Requirements: College Seniors or Certified Teachers in Education/Recreation and/or Day Care or major background in working with children 2 to 17 years of age.

Doesn't every job require a certain amount of BS...

Sorry - couldn't resist - in my neck of the woods, a Bachelor of Science, is a B.Sc.

The only place where your Biology knowlege can come useful is in the crew bar
