A cruise ship is like a small, floating city and there are many jobs on cruise ships.
How would you like to travel to some of the most exotic places in the world? You could visit places; Most people never get a chance to see Australia, New Zealand, the Far East, the Caribbean and many more.
When I was young I always wanted to see the world and at the tender age of 19, I started traveling to Southeast Asia with my backpack. My very first trip was Sri Lanka and Thailand. A year later I went to South America, Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. In the meantime, the traveling beetle had a firm grip on me. What I had to do was to travel more, but my finances didn’t allow me to. So a friend of mine had the great idea of getting a job on a cruise ship. That was the answer to all my dreams. I applied for a job as a waitress and was lucky enough to get one.
If you want to see the world, that’s the way to go. At some point I woke up on a different tropical island every day. What a ball I had!
I made friends and met people from many different parts of the world. And the best part was that I experienced all of this and was paid tax-free for it.

Before I finish, I want to introduce you to a fall in this industry that I can imagine. It’s not a good idea to work on a cruise ship if you don’t have an open-minded personality.
