    I worked at Norwegian Cruise Line as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great that you don't have to pay your travel expenses, your medical, hotels and transfers as well as visas for your job. Only expenses were to and from the embassy a couple of times, agent's fee $300 which is illegal now ( I applied in 2005). You have to come already trained for safety and stcw 95....which was cheap where I come from. Although they do not like people transferring departments too much as they have to change ships, I know a lot of people who did that and got promoted and back to the same ship. I was also promoted after only one contract with 60% salary increase. Cheap cigarettes.

    Cons

    The drinking limitations, you are ALWAYS to remain sober...we never did but you can be subjected to an acohol test any time. Having to always wear nametags everywhere and running like a maniac when you forget. Pulling your tights in the lift to only get a call from surveillance with a comment about your sexy butt....the crew areas are getting smaller and smaller and so are the perks. There used to be european food, now i hear that the newer ships don't and granted - if you like to eat fishheads or purple chicken and rice for six months, then no problem. Otherwise, you have to dress up and ask permission to go to the restaurant. If you are on a ship with a good hotel director, you may not need that. On other ships, you may have to ask permission 24hours before....no days off unless you are casino, giftshop or entertainers....but then again, all onboard jobs are like that. you can't get these years for working in any country because they are international and also no paid holidays or overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I heard about the new internet card policy. $20 for 8 mins of skype time....you have to get through to shoreside managers - some of the staff are so poor, they stay on your ships for $600 salary for 12 hour shifts in the laundryroom, can't go anywhere...and now they can't even call their families back home because of the rediculous pricetag on the cards. Be more humane. .... please
