Default Breathalysing

Hi all so I have a question and it's related to being a concessionaire and being breathalysed and over the limit...

If you are breathalysed and over the limit but not dismissed by the captain but by your own company, I'm assuming that means you won't be able to work on that same ship again (and obviously the concession company) but if it's a Carnival UK ship would that ban be relevant only to Cunard and P&O UK or would it extend to ALL of Carnival corps brands?

Thanks for any information as I'm not sure how it all works

So you got fired by your concession company for drinking over the limit?
Not unusual for concessionaires.

And you want to work on ships again?
So when you apply to another concession company, what do you plan to tell them about your previous ship experience?
If you list your previous employer, and the new company checks your references, they will learn that you were fired for drinking too much. At that point, your chances of future employment decrease significantly.

As a long-time Carnival Corp Manager, I can tell you that Carnival Corp maintains a database of all terminations on all of the ships under their umbrella.
Your name will be on that database, in case you apply directly to a Carnival brand.

Good luck.

I beg to differ.
They have much more time to waste than cleaners, waiters etc., hence much more time to go ashore and get drunk.
