I have never heard of the job "animator."

This is a job description I see for European cruise lines. Sorry, I'm not sure what it is.

Production show entertainers generally need dancing skills - broadway-style contemporay dancing - in addiition to singing skills.

Cruise staff need entertaining skiils, mostly comfort in front of big crowds, a sense of humor (comedian, in a sense) but mostly hosting shows, karaoke, calling bingo (which you have to keep fun), pool games, etc.

You may be called upon to get on stage omce in awhile to sing, but rarely.

multi-lingual is a plus for any cruise line.

Onboard living conditions are very good for a cruise job. A single cabin, run of the ship, decent pay. Its one of the better jobs.

maybe $500/week ($300 -$600 range). Remember its all savings though as every expense is covered.
