Shared cabins Report Abuse
Unless you are a high ranking officer or are in a management or director position, you should expect to have to share a cabin. On the plus side, your cabin mate will likely become your closest friend.

Bunk beds Report Abuse
If you get the top bunk, you could begin to feel like a 5 year old again. You also have to be careful waking up early morning, it’s easy to forget you’re on the top bunk and jump out bed when the alarm goes off! I did it and its no fun.

Missing land life (the chance of a part time job, go to school, family gatherings) is what made my works as a cruise worker miserable. August 6 201i will be my last day of this horrible experience

Can’t get away from people you don’t like. Report Abuse

You are stuck with your coworker, crew cabin, or boss. If you decide to leave, well, you are free to go and pay your air ticket back home. You are basically stuck at the job with no easy way to leave.

Hard Hard Work Report Abuse
Working on a cruise ship was a lot of fun, but it’s HARD work. I often worked as much as 10 to 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. On days when I only worked 5 hours day, I felt as if I had a day off.

No weekends Report Abuse
There is no 9-5, Monday to Friday on cruise ships. Most jobs require you to work 7 days a week for the length of your contract. (You get a month or two off between contracts to catch up on your rest

Working in a cruise ship is like going in a dark long tunnel, being the end of your contract the light at the end of it.
