    Contract was fair, and benefits they take good care of their employee and crew members in the ship. The accomadation and food were satisfactory. If you ever cruising try carnival cruise ship the most enjoyable and fun that you will not forget, it good for relaxing and vacation the crew was marvelous they will treat you as queen and king.

    Cons

    Sometimes the booking in the airlines was some sort of delayed, I mean the schedule was not accurate may be the faults of the airlines.

    Management from the office and in the ship was very organized. They take care of the crew problem as well the guest.

    Pros

    The money is good, the environment is fun and the people are for the most part great.

    Cons

    Horrible hours and will require you to work unpaid overtime. They force you into staying late and will make you feel like crap if you have to do things like pick your child up from a sitter.

    Advice to Management

    It's becoming very obvious that you have favorite's who you filter the "better" leads to.

    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
