Hi! I really need some assistance from experienced crew members. I have an interview with NCL and I know that I want to work in the Entertainment Dept. but I don't know how the entertainment dept on cruise ships works.
It seems like titles and job descriptions that are clearly defined in TV/Film production are different in cruise line productions so I'm a bit confused.
I want to work on the creative side of productions, and I'm not exactly sure what position to apply for. I want to list the things that I want to do and the things I don't want to do and if you could please tell me what is the title of this position on a cruise ship I would really appreciate it.
Things I'm interested in doing in the entertainment dept.:
a) concept development for all shows/entertainment
c) directing plays/musicals/live events/game shows
d) coordinating video shoots for weddings/parties/celebrations/live events
e) finding/hiring talent/crew
Not interested in:
a) camera work
b) audio work
c) all things technical (TDing, consoles etc)
d) troubleshooting equipment
f) being the talent/on camera
Thanks for your input in advance!
