Also crew cabins on cruise ships are shockingly cramped, shared with people who smell weird and bring their hook-ups there to hook up, below the waterline (is that even legal?), and the wifi is expensive. According to the cadets at princess. Additionally, showing up in uniform to charm the cargo at the bar may be required.
I did most of my travelling working offshore. Equal time off, and you just stay where you are.
This is how I saw Scotland, England, Wales, Norway, The Netherlands, France, Germany, Portugal, Gibraltar, Malta, Cyprus, Suez, Malasia, Singapore, New Zealand, Ghana, Nigeria, Namibia, Cameroon, New York, and New Orleans: all without paying for airfare. Add the Caribbean if this virus ever gets sorted out. (Speaking of viruses: nora. Cruise ships are disease incubators… I have all my shots, but: eww).
The wage is good, the cabins are private and comfortable, the food is nice, the cargo never wants to chitchat about boring topics, and I’m only charming when I want to be. Its a good life. And I’m talking to you via free, all-you-can-eat wifi.
