Ok i been thinking about taking a job at NCL. I am suppose to train at piney point.

I just want to know how is the training at piney point? Easy, tough?
How are the rooms that i would sleep in. I am aware that i would have to share are they big rooms?

Hi Jermaine,

Sleep? You don't get to sleep! Just kidding, you might consider Royal Caribbean for your employment. More international staff to work with and learn from. I have heard some interesting stories here about Piney point, check out this post on the subject:

Join the Navy.

You'll probably have more free time and have a skill you can actually use when you get out.

Different opinons were expressed, but it sounds like a life changing experience. Do you think they would hire a retired female with a facelift and energy of a 25 yr old.

I feel awful that a song by the Village People comes to mind.

Well that exhausts my knowledge of the V.P. Did they do other songs? Can't seem to remember.
