Earning My Ears

When I worked on a cruise ship, I (and many others) would have LOVED a crew pool! Yes, the work is hard, but also the pay and vacation time earned is worth it! If it wasn't for the kids, guess where I'd be?

I will say, though, that for some of the crew . . . depending on what ports they are in, and for how long - well, let's just go with a day stop, ok? Crew such as room stewards, etc. are working when the ship docks, and by the time the ship leaves, there is no time for them to go to shore. On the cruise line I worked on, you could take turns manipulating the schedule, so that each person in your dept. could get an extra day off to see the sights (or sleep!). At the ports with an overnight stay, most crew will get off ship and go their merry way on their off time.

I would think that a small token, whether it being a quick invite to see something outside, or even a baggie of mini-chocolates, would just make the day for some crew.
