Ever thought about working on a cruise ship?
Free room and board, exotic locations, beautiful sunsets, etc.
Well, before you break that lease and hop onboard, you might want to read to the following AskReddit stories from current and former cruise ship workers.
They might give you a little more info to marinate on…
It was the worst job I’ve ever had in my life.
Some bullet points:
If you get fired, the line I worked for would kick you off on whatever island they docked at next. Sounds fair – but some of these kids had just started working and had no money saved up that could get them home.
I did not have a single day off during my entire five-month contract, and we worked split shifts: anywhere from 12-17 hours a day.
You saw these amazing places from a porthole. I got off the ship like three times.
The percentage of people with an STD triples when you compare entry vs. exit tests. Lots’a freakiness.
I hooked up with a girl in one bunk while her roomie did the same with my buddy.
Lots of drinking.
