Confessions clear what common people always wanted to know. What all happens at a cruise ship? It might look all fancy from outside but does it like other things, get messier on the inside?
Check out what cruise ship workers confessed on Reddit about life at the ship. The confessions cleared the doubts of many people, who always wanted to know what happens below the deck.
Cruise is a small microcosm to live. Everyone enjoys sex and the once who fall in love, they name it "Ship Thing". That means the relationship life is not guaranteed forward after the cruise ship contract.
I would like to disclose that we have more fun than the guests. We all work for the big night party, but only after finishing our shift. The crew bar serves us gallons of drinks.
All crew member hate dancing on the repeated songs of "The Black Eyed Peas". Lyrics of the song goes out like "Tonight Going To Be A Good Night", but hardly the night turns out to be good.
Andrew says, I worked as a backstage technician. The food served to us was awful. Actually, Chef's follow the same menu, so there are no new recipes. However, I was able to order eggs, chicken breast, and hamburger. But, I survived with combine food recipes like the college days. I was totally heartbroken with awful food and annoying karaoke music.
F**** is common, all over the ship. I and my girlfriend had a bet with an officer and his lady for having $ex at the riskiest place. We managed to work out on the bow of the ship, while the office and his girl smashed each other on the elevator and everyone was passing on and off the elevator.
Belowdecks = belowjobs. The safest place for BJ's.
Below deck has morgues and a jail cell. Every month a minimum of 3 people die on the cruise. People mostly come to cruise to die.
Staff food is horrible. We mostly eat "Toast and Cereal" or pink "Pepto Bismol Surprise". Many nights we are served leftover food that we call Boob Food.
Sara did a 6-month contract on a popular cruise line. I was shocked to see how employees were treated. The crew members had their own mess hall. While the staff was just served leftover meat and food. It was crew members who had real fun on the cruise.
Jack and Rose do not exist.
Worst job of my life. If you are fired then the line will kick you off on whatever island they dock next. The strange thing is the freshers do not even have enough money to reach back home from the stranded island.
I played a solid gig for a couple of summers as a Jazz musician. I performed with a house quartet every night for 3 months. The cruise witnessed an incredibly fast-spreading stomach flu. There were a couple of serious cases of stomach flu over the ship. It was so bad that I thought we have to get the CDC to disinfect the ship.
