Cruise ship crew dating
I guess the common phrase still holds true, what happens in the crew bar stays in the crew bar . One of the many reasons i love working on the NCL EPIC. I know there are certain cruise lines that have that Rank issues very serious; not where I work.
yes we have entertainers on board and yes they do have certain privileges that other crew members dont have, like having a cabin steward or room service delivery, but besides that the "regular" crew can enjoy all the ships restaurants, bars and lounges, take a swim in the guest pool or just relax and soak up some sun on the pool deck. Yes certain crew members can go around and go to guest areaa but in the same way if a guest complaint about them they are in real trouble.
Aside from blatant segregation, the crew bar is alive with music and cheap booze, allowing crew members to party and get “tanked” till the early hours of the morning.
With that said, this is a risk that many crew members see worth taking. What happens in the Crew Bar Stays in the Crew Bar so true, I wrote an article on Onboard relationships, it is like a fast forward button, one night in the crew bar, then your cabin, and you have a relationship for the duration of the contract, some call it mistress others call it house mouse, so many terms so many things happen down there my motto: We are the men and woman serving on the Seven Oceans, the men and woman who carry the flag of convenience, this is our life, a life on its own, a life only we will understand, a secret society, this is our family, our memories, the men and woman serving the Seven Oceans I can only smile when i read this article if only they knew what goes on :)))) This is only our privilege our society.And you would realize they preferred the separate officer bar so they could chill out in peace away from them.If there's any elitism in the crew, it would come from the entertainers and perhaps some of the officers.Because the "lowest" jobs on the totem pole are the cleaners, those employees are usually situated on the lowest deck of the ship, in shared cabins with a communal washroom and shower to be shared with those living in that particular corridor.
