    Pros

    It can be easy because people are already calling in because they are interested in a cruise.

    Cons

    One negative aspect I can think of off-hand is that many customers will argue regarding prices.

    Pros

    Travel, travel, travel
    Meeting people from all over the world
    Constant training
    Learn excellent skills such as time management and adaptability

    Cons

    If you're not into working everyday then this may not be for you. This is not with every department but since the youth department deals with kids, we needed to be able to keep them entertained for the duration of their vacation.

    Advice to Management

    It is nice when we are able to voice our opinions on how the program can be improved and it is actually considered. Kudos for that. Please however, learn to better communicate information to staff rather than discovering the information when it might be too late for example: wanting to sign off in another category

    Be more flexible in scheduling and stop reinventing the wheel that was working 10 years ago.

    Pros

    Discounts on cruises, and you can work from home.

    Cons

    They do not take care of their employees. In this position you deal with EVERYONE. Guests, travel agents and other departments and are under paid!
