Sorry for the delay, and I can't respond to all the points right now, but can assure you that I was real crew. I'm not trolling, and just thought this was an appropriate place to do this (honestly...

I was the senior videographer on those ships, and most of the time I was able to put the camera in places guests or crew couldn't access.

Well, that's cool! On RCI, it's a no no. They just show a video, but that's cool that they do it on Carnival. Right on.

That happens a lot too. It's pretty romantic, and guests and crew do fall in love. But, it's still against the rules, and it's always game over for the crew member...no matter what.

But, yeah,...

She's right, it'll depend on the guests...and the run too. Some cruises are better than others. In Australia, tipping isn't as big as it is here, so the bar staff make nothing. Those cruises are...

Yeah, but good luck posting anything honest, or controversial on it. This is important, because we get to be honest here. I like it. I don't feel like I need to water down what I'm saying, and I...

Just go to a shoe store. Make sure they're all white...no colours. Also, make sure they have non-slip soles.

But, honestly, the ships will probably just make you buy their shoes. The cruise...

Thanks!

For most of them, I was using a long-format hard drive Sony Handicam (DSR-SR12), and then I'd speed everything up in Final Cut Pro. I'd like to get a DSLR camera and a robotic mount, so I...

One word. MONEY.

They pick ports based on cost/profit. That's it. If they have deals with the ports, the businesses, the governments, then they go. If they don't...then they don't go.
