Chris, Sorry I missed you on our Oct 4th sailing, but had a great time on Mariner. Keep up the great PR as the "Royal Caribbean Dude"  Hi to Rachel and Natalea

Loved the video.  Was this while you were still in the shops?  Is there also a crew party or are all the crew too busy or exhausted to have one?

 

I typically book long January to March cruises and can't afford to be away at New Years as well, so I've only been on one New Years cruise and that was on Holland America.  I'm an early bird and dozed off for the festivities but woke up just in time to see the celebration left overs before the big cleanup started.

Yes, this was when I was still working in the shops.

 

I do have footage of the crew party, but didn't include it, in case it got me into trouble with the company.

These cruises are so quick, I guess we just never crossed paths. 3 and 4 day cruises keep my very busy all the time.

 

Thank you. One day I hope to make vlogs for Royal Caribbean full time, so hopefully my YouTube channel will get me there.

Just made a little thank you video!

 

Thank you to all of you who have watched and showed support to my vlogs, and I have loved getting to meet some of you who have come onboard my ship.

 

I have also just finished filming a 'how much I earn' video as well, so look out for that. Any guesses out there as to how much my salary is?

So today is a sea day.

 

I'm sure for everyone here, sea days are relaxing and a lot of fun.

 

For us crew members, it is actually one of the busiest and longest days of the cruise. We be can working up to 14 hours. (including our breaks)

 

My schedule on sea days as an Assistant Casino Host is 11am-4pm and then 7pm-1am

 

Working in the shops my schedule was 9am-11pm (45 minutes for much, 2 hours for dinner)

Thanks for taking the time to post your videos and answer questions. Keep up the good work.  Maybe someday I will get to meet you in person, until then keep us informed with your posts and vlogs.

Enjoying this thread and your vlogs as well. Just one question. On my rare trips to Vegas the only table game I played is baccarat. Every time I go to the casino the it seems the baccarat table is closed. Do you ever open it?

Here on Mariner, we don't even have baccarat.

 

I would assume it's more common on the ships in Asia.

When I was on Mariner in April it had one but was never staffed.  They must have replaced it.  Thanks for the info.

Thank you again for all the love so far!

 

We're just about to leave Port Canaveral, ready for yet another busy cruise. I spent today in Publix buying lots of essentials. This is how I typically spend my turnaround day.

hi Chris, your videos are so interesting. i have a few questions. do you get benefits, like insurance, a pension, or a 401k? do you work hourly or salary? how many days in a week are you scheduled? are there many opportunities for advancement?
