Hi there! First of all, thanks a lot for taking the time to do this AMA! I Know you probably want to answer more interesting questions, but I would really appreciate it if you could answer a few more questions on employment (sorry!!). I work as a bank teller, and I met a girl who just got done working on princess cruises watching over kids and teenagers. She told me how much fun she had and I couldn't help but ask her about employment opportunities. She told me that she got into position by sending a resume and mentioning her experience with children from baby sitting and the like. She asked me what I do, and because I have some (not a lot to be honest) DJ and college radio experience, she told me that "teen DJ" would be my best bet for landing a job. She said it was basically a joke in terms of difficulty, but I could stand a shot. Does Carnival has similar positions to these? I'm very employable, but without much "entertaining" experience do you think I would stand a fair chance at sinking one of these positions? Also, I'm assuming they have gyms on board the ships, so would they have any use for certified personal trainers?? Thank you so much for your time!!

There is a DJ in the club 02, and she was right.. its a joke. The regular dj in the main club is the better spot. You don't have to be a hotshot to do the job. I'm not sure about the requirements to become a dj on the ship but it's not hard at all. Just making sure you keep a constant string of popular music during the night. All of the ones I knew said it was a breeze. DJs provide entertainment in various shipboard locations which, in addition to dance clubs, include poolside and deck areas, various lounges and bars, and a host of other venues. If you go to www.carnivalenterainment.com you will find some interesting videos. No info on being a DJ there. But the application process is done through the website under the " Apply Now " section in the top right. GOOD LUCK!!!! and do it. It will an experience of a life time.

My fianc when she was younger and in college ended up banging the waiter from her ship, later to find out the crew plays sort of a game to see how many chicks they can hook up with. Is this allowed or do they make it very clear there is no sex with passengers? Is it possible to keep long term relations with your shipmates or do they forbid that too? How big was your room? Cheers!

well, I never personally saw anyone making a game out it.. but it happened.. it happened alot. Carnival absolutely forbids it. If you get caught ( like my roomate) you will be fired by the next home port. He knew he was in hot water, but they didn't tell him he was fired. 5am the morning of arriving back in Mobile, AL he got a knock on the door by 2 security guards telling him.. by the way, your going home.... relationships between shipmates is a regular, they even allow you to have the same room, like a couples room with a single bed instead of the bunk beds. I know plenty of people that hold a relationship for a while... but its just hard unless you get the same contracts, Carnival is willing to book the 2 of you together. As for the banging of the cones... *** happened like clockwork. i mentioned a story earlier in a post about 1 hook-up.. countless others. We would take girls back stage, on the bank stand... the changing rooms... even back to their rooms. A lot of it started back in the port... then close the deal back on the ship.

My mom is interested in traveling the world a bit while still working, and she's had probably 30 years nursing experience. She's interested in trying to move out and work as a nurse on a cruise ship. My questions are (if you have any idea)- how much responsibility for passengers do you have in a position like that on a cruise ship? How qualified do you have to be? How much work do you typically do as a medical personnel on a ship? Is it hard to get a job on a cruise ship? Anything they requested of you when you started out?

Not sure from the medical aspect.. I know for sure you need 2 years of ER experience.. Patients are pretty easy... most of them are sick from the sea, Dramamine and they are good to go. I wouldn't expect her to do much lifting. They work in rotations on the ship. 12 hours. But not necessarily in the infirmary the entire time. We would all hang out somewhere and they would carry a radio.. Its a pretty relaxed atmosphere. I would contact Miami head quarters. check out this website too- http://www.cclcareers.com/fun-careers/hotel-operations.aspx

How much was the pay? if you don't mind divulging

I left Carnival making 1800 monthly. Not bad when its all profit.. I paid no rent, food, light, cable... I spent most of my money enjoying the ports, paying off credit cards and traveling in between contracts.
