I spoke to a young man who was working onboard the Ocean Village 2 last week, he had been on several ships, and also a lady who was retail manager onboard ov2, she had been working onboard the island cruise ship escape the week before, she said she did 6 weeks at a time onboard different ships. The young man told me he received free board and lodge, but was paid at end of contract, about minimum wage, but bear in mind you also receive your board and lodge, I didnt think so bad. But he did stress he worked very long hours. and was part comm paid. Sound good to me, hope you obtain nice job and enjoy, He did say their was more money to be made on some of the classier ships, as prices were higher, ov comm would be more. and people on these cruises who are paying more, may have more to spend.

I am in a position where I have access to enter competitions that are not open to the general public and I have done rather well over the years.
