Sumary of I work on cruise ships. Here's what it's really like living on board, from windowless cabins to crew parties.:
- Staffers typically live with a roommate in tiny cabins that have bunk beds and small closets.
- Erica DePascale Measuring around 120 square feet, crew cabins are typically tight and don’t have windows.
- Erica DePascale Although every cabin is equipped with its own bathroom, it’s typically so tiny that you can brush your teeth, use the toilet, and shower at the same time.
- Erica DePascale Crew members in higher positions have better cabinsBased on my experience, managers and officers typically have cabins with a porthole and full-size bed, plus an additional fold-down bed for guests.
- They also typically receive daily housekeeping while most crew members are responsible for cleaning their own cabins.
- Erica DePascale Roommates are typically assigned by division, but I’ve found it’s easy to move in with a friend if you’d like.
