Hello!
I am actually at the training at the Steiner Academy in Watford right now! I can't tell you much about actual life on ships since I haven't been shipped out just yet, but I can tell you that contracts are now 9 months long (just found that out today) and the YMCA is a little bit like hell. But you can't be discouraged by that, you just have to keep your eye on the prize(s): money and travel! As long as you are qualified for the position and able to be away from home, then you will be fine! Good luck!

Default YMCA hell

yes it is hell in the YMCA, it's incredibly basic, to prepare you for the ships, but don't worry, it's not as bad on the ships!!

you work all day on a seaday, usually from 8am till 8 pm, and i depends on port days, you usually get 1 full day a cruise, but a lot of that depends on your manager. the money depends on what you do, threre's a different commission rate depending on your job, and you get commission for all you retail sales, and then any tips you make are yours too. on a good ship you can make $3500 up a months, and if you're not a US citizen, there's no tax to pay!!

you have to stay for your whole contract, unless you resign. it's a good life though, you get pretty close to the people you work with, you'll make some good friends, see some nice places, and make some money!! once you get passed the YMCA, it's a different story on a ship than it is at the academy, so just enjoy it!!
