    I worked at Princess Cruise Lines as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is a really great place to work for making new friends and exploring the world if you are given the time. Great if you have no other bills at home to be paid.

    Cons

    Although there are some fringe benefits (discounted travel after completing the season), you still have to pay for room and board. Most positions are a decent hourly rate, however when you know, and I really did know, that there are some servers making $30-$40K cash in four months, the rest of us didn't make anything in comparison (less than $6K) after they took out for room and board.

    And as far as time off to "explore the world" as I previously stated, depending on your position and depending on your schedule, this time can be very limited. The servers there really do get the best of both worlds. They make the most money and the have more people on staff to be able to switch around their schedules to have days off at a time to go out and explore. Most other positions are barely staffed enough to cover the day-to-day operations, so getting more than one day off in a row is almost impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth. I watched as contests were handed out left and right to the servers for $500 airline vouchers. It makes no sense that the people making the most money on property are being given the opportunity to earn these free handouts when it is the rest of the entire staff there who are making it possible for those servers to even have people sitting at their tables, and the rest of the staff who could really use the free tickets.

    Pros

    Even tho this is a job for four months of the year, working in Alaska and the people you met and the quality of the Lodge was breath taking, the tours you can take and the benefits of going out and adventure Alaska without being on a cruise is endless.

    Cons

    The down side is that you live with eighty people or more for four months so something is bound to happen, but the company dose a great job of dealing with it and making everyone happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the work and living and the pleasure of working at the lodge was one of the beast jobs i have ever experienced.
