Down Job as Purser on Carnival Cruise Line -- Was it the Right Decision
I’m very glad I found this page. Just a moment ago a manager of a firm
that searches for a “new blood” for cruise ship companies called me
whether I will take the job or not. Well, I said no. It was the
position of international purser for 1200$ per month.
I did the interview here in Prague the Czech Republic with a
representative of Carnival Cruise Lines and he offered me this job. I
had one week to decide. After many days of thinking I hope that my NO
was a right decision. I think that this job is “too little music for
too little money”. The only attractive thing for me was the fact of
traveling and getting some money for my studies.
But what I read was the opposite. Just to board on the ship I was told
to pay round 1300$. For air fare and I guess some provision for the
recruiting firm. I was searching the web quite carefully and besides
your page I didn’t find anything like your page. Do you think that
those rich cruise companies “censorship” the Internet? And the last
question, do those workers on cruise ships have Internet access to
write “bad experiences” on the net? I never saw any negative comments.
Do you think that those big cruise line companies pay a lot of money to
local “recruiters” for “new blood” for their cruise ships?
