    I worked at Carnival full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good culture, fun traveling, easy schedule, and good compensation. You can buy t-shirts for the Carnival employees that say "I swear this is my last contract" because it is hard to get back to reality after a single contract. All of your meals are cooked for you, your bed is made for you, and they are great at assigning you to the ship that you want.

    Cons

    Hard to remain in contact with the family or friends that are on land, very transitory, sometimes put in entertainment roles that are not part of your job description.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Cocktail Piano players has a mood setter, and do not try and pose them as a strong entertainment show.
