    Great bunch of people to work with. Is like one big family from co-workers and management. Everyone works very well together and have fun doing their job.

    Wish it was a full time position instead of seasonal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and respond to their emails!!! You people sitting in an office in Seattle don't see what those of us working aboard the ship see so it would be in your best interest to communicate and learn from US!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
