Cunard "employ" them but I believe you have to pay $25 per day for the privilige. OK if you want a cheap cruise and enjoy dancing.

Yes it is possible but there is a sting in the tail. Most cruise ships operate this employment through a number of agencies. They will arrange a contract for a set period. Guess what though? These agencies charge a recruiting fee, as do the cruise ships, to cover your board and food. Fine if you feel you are going to enjoy the whole experience as an alternative to paying for a cruise, but it is certainly not 'employment'. If you are still interested, google 'Gentleman Dance Hosts and see what you can come up with. Best of luck.

Yet another timewaster I think - note the name Tombs - BURY St Edmunds.

Heading to the Caribbean?

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

With major hurricanes bartering through the United Stated and the Caribbean over the last couple of months I have received a huge amount of calls from obviously concerned passengers as to whether their cruise will still be happening, and if so will the itinerary still be the same.Having worked in the Caribbean for a couple of years with Thomson I have been in the middle of a couple of Hurricanes and dealt with the aftermath too from evacuating Islands, to holding the fort in hurricane shelter...
