Default Contract lengths


I'm looking into working as an international hostess and wondered if anyone could help give me an idea of contract lengths for Costa, Royal Caribbean, Princess etc. I've managed to find info on the jobs themselves but not the contract lengths.

For RCCL, it's 6 or so months on, 6 weeks off. I think you'll find this with most 'staff' contracts for any of the lines.

As for other areas, (as I know some folks will want to know) Hotel management is usually 4 months on/2 months off, and marine officers do 10 weeks on/10 weeks off. Some areas may do more or less, depending on 'business needs' - Filipinos who work in marine or facilites sometimes do 8-9 months, and some crew will ask or be asked to extend or shorten as needed.
