Hey all. Apparently the cruise moguls do read this site. I was contacted in late December by a major cruise line to participate in an internal documentary on cruise ship abuses and security issues. After several weeks of discussions, I have agreed to a 12 month employment contract which includes some nice travel and perks. Also, more work than I really wanted but the pay is outstanding and it will give this lazy scuba/ski bum a new challenge.

I start my tour in five weeks.

See y'all aboard.

Congratulations! Does this mean that you will be paid to cruise?

Congratulations! Just don't feed the sharks! Curious if the cruise line contacted you through this site or if you had applied for the position?

Thank you for the well wishes. As many of you well know, cruising is not exactly my style of traveling. Yes, my wife and I will be on multiple ships over the next year - estimate 9 different vessels with over 130 days away from home (including on-site work out-of-state). The dogs will stay with relatives (we will miss them)

Interestingly, they found me on this site. I did not apply. I actually thought the "cruise mafia" had gotten my number and was gonna have me fixed by Vinnie. Maybe they were angry with some of my posts or something? Man I was getting nervous. he he Strange things happen.

Wonder if they approached Dave for a position yet? Also, Sonny should be Goodwill Ambassador for RCCL with Penny and f-mattox being the same for Princess! I'd settle for either playing piano or being the Captain on Carnival Holiday!

I think they should use Sonny in the RCI commercials. The same for Penny and f-mattox with Princess. The "real person" angle always makes the biggest impression on me.

I've not been approached yet, but considering I plan to retire from TVA no later than two years from now, I will certainly consider any proposals the cruise lines have for me at that time. Maybe I could conduct a "cruise clinic for newbies" aboard Carnival ships - where I hold talks and practical demonstrations for new cruisers so they learn the ropes. "Okay, now watch closely as I order a bucket of beer." "Today's seminar topic: Don't fear the escargot".

How to eat "chocolate melting cake" would be another great topic!
