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.

    Out of the box thinking is highly rewarded. One can actually create his or her own position or even an entire department if he/she can prove profitability.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to get things done if it requires the involvment of multiple departments
    IT department couldn't fix a blown circuit breaker

    As you continue to evolve to survive in a tighter economy, do not forsake the things that made you so successful in the first place.
