disadvantages. There is
limited privacy: You don't get your own
room right of the bat, however there are
positions that allow you to have your
own room. Seniority plays a major
role on the ships.
If you're a new employee, and you're
heading into an entry-level position,
expect to share a room with somebody.
Usually, you will not have more than 1
roommate. Also the rooms are very
comfortable and livable If you
don't mind having a roommate
temporarily, you're good to go! That's
the only major issue on the ships.
Now, in many cases, you can pay a
minimal fee each month and get your own
room. The thing is, it may not be
economical for you. Chances are,
you won't be spending too much time in
the rooms. You'll either be
working or sightseeing. After you
put in about 2-4 months of work on a
ship, you could very well get your own
room by talking to a manager.
Again, it's all about seniority.
