Hey pacalici, you are so right, cruise crew is the modern way of slaves but the difference is that no crew is forced to work, you can get off and resign in every port ! I understad your frustration, but you should think of a different life then. I did meet alot of crew and some of the working for more than 12 month in one contract, still they have been proud to feed their families and e.g. in the philipines to built houses and to have a bright futurte for their kid. No doubt that the payment is rediculous, but for the next 100 years at least you will find enough poor people on this globe that would be happy to sign any such contract.
take your life with a smile and relax
