Everyone makes their choice. I think a lot of people would love to have a roof over their head and money in their pocket. I hope that the automatic $20.00 a day tipping really goes towards the cruise. If every employee on the ship really hates their job, then they truly deserve something for the wonderful acting that they do!!
Dave, I have two brothers that were on the Nimitz, along with my uncle.

The Nimitz motto: "Teamwork. A Tradition."

Sometimes we enlisted people had a variation on this motto.

just my opinion but if is as bad as you say it is there would be no one working on the ships. And on my last cruise I shared a taxi with some crew members headed into town for their time off. cant help but wonder if you really work for them or are you an attorney trying to drum up business by posting that link. just a thought
I just wanted to point a difference, a waiter or a stateroom steward in 6 months on carnival makes 15 000 dolars or more , an experienced waiter, a head waiter if you check his name tag, makes more the 3 000 every month, make the math or i make it for you 6 months work about 20 000 dolars in his pockets, a cook makes about 4 000 in 6 months, a cook in charge of a lido operation, has a red scarf around his neck , has many years experience, makes a little more then 1000 dolars a month, a dishwasher hotel steward... are even less appeciated 6 months about 3 000, who are appreciated in your comments on every website? waiters and stateroom stewards, they work for your money, the rest of the crew who don't get any tips work for ''free''
the crew is rude and uneducated ? i wonder why
carnival cares? nope they get enough money for not paying taxes in open seas... casino drinks tobaco and many many other facilities,
an increase let's say to get at a half the income of a waiter would be more then appreciated, some guests asked me about work conditions, they don't believe that we work for about 300 hours a month, for 7 or more months, what hotel in us do the same with it's own workers, there is no time for you to develop other skills, or to learn something else, unless you take the time for sleep, there are a few crew members who have nice jobs on the ships, and take the most of it, but for many is just work and sleep for every day
is not a complain, is not the worst job in the world, but like an information, for you to consider,
have more questions about the crew? if i can give an answer i'l do my best

I guess it's time to tell everyone not to feed the troll - which is what I assess the OP to be. We have what we call "gravity issues" at work. These are things that the average employee has no control over and cannot change. Someone who just sits and dwells on gravity issues is just wasting their time....especially when they can end their perceived angst by simply quitting. Or, they can call 1-800-boo hoo hoo.

Frankly I am tired of this thread.

I work at an upscale shopping mall with a lot of really nice restaurants and most of the line cooks, busboys and dishwashers work two and even three jobs to make ends meet; so why does our friend think it should be any different on a ship. Go back to school and get a better job and quitchurbitchin' !!

$15,000.00 tax free, room and board, six months work, on board a ship, looking at the ocean, peeking at bikinis. I'd quit too.

When I retire, I'm going to get a nip and tuck, some liposuction, new teeth, and some implants, then I'll gladly be ready to work on a CCL ship, just for the experience, and joy of meeting new people. A bar waitress, purser's office, or gift shop position would suit me just fine. I'll be too old to carry heavy trays in the dining room and with shrinkage, I'll be to short to make the top bunk.

One person's trash is another's treasure.

You forgot to add that some of these folks come from countries where the very annual wage is $150.00. No wonder there is a waiting list to sign up!!!

Free room and board and plenty of food to eat. I can't wait to retire. I have my application filled out just waiting to send it in.
