    Pros

    While you're working you can visit the world for free. You can work withing a multicultural team and learn new languages.

    Bad management of working time schedules and human resources. Low salaries and slow growth inside the company.

    Managers should be better prepared for their role and most of them should have the right background before covering their actual position, so they can understand the needs of their team.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Costa Cruise Lines (More than a year)

    Pros

    A multicultural place. I had been respected to my colleagues and improved a team work as well. The usual language on my department was Italian.

    Cons

    I really see the discrimination for non European crew (extra EU and skin color). Not much respect to health crew. It's a economic line and the routes are not a great stimulus.

    Advice to Management

    The manager makes the difference between a good professional live on board and a crazy live on board. The live on board is even hard but is possible work hard and live well if the manager decides it.
