...it is actually the jones act, but who cares what these acts are called.

i don't understand why the NCL America crew is complaining about long hours, not enough tip etc.
the international crew on the other ship have the same tipping policy and they don't complain...PLUS they work 10 months straight where as the NCL America crew work a maximum of 5 months AND get 12 months salary, which the international crew doesn't.... i could go on and on...

in order to work on NCL america you have to be either american citizen or green card holder (and only a certain percentage of green card holders are allowed).

Cheers
