So I’ve been sitting on the beach for the past six months spending all my money on cheap cars and fast women, waiting for NOAA to decide to hire me which apparently they are never going to do…So I was starting to look into other avenues and just today I got an email from P and O Cruises, a large British company saying they want to hire me as a Deckhand and pay me 4000 quid a month, all travel paid. Not too shabby eh? I think Im going to accept, more to just get out of the house than anything else.
These ships are friggin massive!!!
So has anyone here worked in Deck dept. on one of these big cruise ships? Whats the experience like? I guess I’ll find out.
Anyone work on British ships? Any major differences: customs, terminology, limey slang?
Also I have to get a temporary 2 year British MMC and ICC document. The company handles all that though, so its no sweat on my part.
