No crew member pay forroom and board.
However, it veries from company to company wether or not if they get their travel expenses covered.
The salaries also varies a lot, and for some positions the basic salary is quite low and the rest is based on tips.

As Dave and others have mentioned, nobody is onboard against their will and compared to a land job in some countries they are making much more money sailing.
