    "Cruise Inc" on Skt tv.

    I've already posted this on the wrong forum!
    The US programme "Cruise Inc" is showing on Sky TV tomorrow morning at 2.30 am. It's Channel 505 CNBC news-Jo.

      Thanks for the heads up on Cruise Inc, I enjoyed watching but no real surprises for myself. I'll have a search for Liz on the internet later, no time now, but thanks again.

        It was very interesting seeing 'behind the scenes' ...I noticed the Steward saying he 'makes 2,500 dollars a month' but they didn't say whether it was just wages or including tips/gratuities/service charges or whether that was before board and lodging etc.etc. so I was none the wiser on that subject!!

          We had one last year who said $3,000 per month but the basic was around $800/900 per month and the rest were his tips but then free accommodation; meals; cheap drink; laundry etc is the common place on the good cruise lines. Although he hated being away from the family he could send money home every month as his needs were few and far between, but with most contracts around 9 months even with a mobile phone and access to a computer it must be a difficult life, one I hasten to add I would never even thought of.

            We have a friend from an E. European country who has adopted her sister's baby, so that the lass can go to work on a Greek Isand each season. I don't think her accommodation's up to much, and I'm sure the tips will be less. My own sister and famly emigrated to Australia, many, many years ago, and never had the money to return, which broke my parents hearts.It's a sadness the world over, and I only hope we'll continue to appreciate the crews who work so hard for us.-Jo.
