Mees onlangs, he explained some of the perks staff on board the ships get, including heavily discounted travel for friends and family.

“I just signed my parents and my friend Jeremiah on last week.
“All you have to do is pay $40 (£35) a day and you can stay on the ship as long as you want and do whatever you want.
“It’s kinda like buddy passes for airlines, except it’s unlimited.
“This is one of the best perks of working for a cruise line because you can bring your friends with you pretty much anywhere on the planet.
“Once you’re on the ship, everything is completely free, including your food and your shows.”

Guests will also get given a room to stay in, which will vary in standard, depending on whatever is available on the ship.
Another perk on board the ship that passengers aren’t given access to is the crew shop.
The on board supermarket allows Bryan and his fellow staff members to pick up “pretty much anything” they need while they’re at sea.
He said that the shop became essential during an eight month period during the pandemic when ship workers were not allowed to leave to visit ports.

“It was like Christmas morning every single time the store got restocked, there was such a long line.”
A lot of people were excited to hear how cheaply they could get on board a cruise ship, if only they had a friend who worked on board.
Een het gesê: “How do I go about submitting an application to be your friend?”
'N Tweede het geskryf: “Goed, you’ve talked me into it. I will be your friend.”
