Hello! I'm a crew member!

Hello, “I’m a Crew Member”!

 

We will be one of many headed toward Nassau in Summer 2020 with Majesty of the Seas port times of 2 pm - midnight.  Do you have any recommendations for an after dinner dance club that the 18-28 year olds in the family can enjoy?

 

Thank you!

Hey Guys!

 

So this is going to be my last video I post for this year. Thank you to every single one of you who has watched and enjoyed my content. I can't wait to post even more videos in 2020!

 

I have big plans for my YouTube channel going into next year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and have a happy new year!

Hi everyone! Just posted my first video of 2020!

 

In today's vlog, I answer a question I get asked a lot - where am I from?

 

 

Great video.  I learned two new terms,  BBC and ABC.

Good for you, Chris.

 

Question:

 

a) You mention about taking cruise shuttle to Walmart  (in Florida?)

        - Are all crews allow to get off the ship in Florida if they want to or some are restricted?

 

b) Time off at ports

       - As a shop or casion employee that relatively easy to get time off but how about room attendants? Do they get time off at all or do they work 7 days a week straight for the entire 35 week contract?

 

Please feel free to not answer if RCL does not want you to.

When it comes to going out in Florida, pretty much all crew can get off the ship, as long as we have our i-95 document. This is kind of life a visa.

 

It's very likely that room attendants will be working when we are docked in port, but I imagine their schedule will allow them to go outside from time to time.

I haven't been on Majesty. I'm not exactly sure what the activities are like on the smaller ships.

Chris, a couple of questions:

 

In your first video, you walked past the Next Cruise desk and commented you might like to work there some day.  Is that still something you think you would like to do?  I think you could be a fantastic fit either for that or possibly as loyalty ambassador.   It might even be a transition to your ultimate goal by making some videos about different cruise destinations that could be used in the marketing cruise destinations.

 

Second question is about your status.  In each of your jobs were you actually a crew member or a contractor working for somebody else but assigned to the ship.  Correct me if I'm wrong but I think for the earlier jobs you would have been a contractor, especially as an art salesman as you did that for another cruise line.  In the casino are you employed directly by Royal or by somebody else who runs the casino?  Perhaps it might even be worth a video explaining the difference between the 2 roles.

 

Roy

 

Yes that is correct. Working in the shops and art gallery, I was a concessionaire. I was employed by Harding Retail as a shoppee, and Park West as an art dealer.

 

Casino Royale is Royal Caribbean, and I am employed directly with the cruise line.

Chris.   Question for you about tipping?     
 

Do you have an opinion on tipping Currency ?   
 

I like to tip in 2.00 bills on top of my daily tipping,some people think the crew would think the bill is a joke ? 

what are your thoughts.   
Ive heard that you guys have an ATM that takes all types of currency???   
it this a thing?    
 

maybe you can help with this discussion.      
 

thanks in advance.

Tipping in US dollars is a lot more convenient for crew members, but I wouldn't suggest to tip with a $2 bill. Even working in the casino, I don't ever see this.

 

No, we don't have an ATM that accepts all currency. Everything onboard the ship, even in the crew areas, is US dollars.

Hey Chris!

I'll be sailing the Mariner on Dec 7.   Will there be any casino lessons?

Lessons usually take place 1 hour before the casino opens.

That's was what the rumor was. They also have the Symphony at the same time?

It should be in the Cruise Compass. Check the times for lessons everyday.
