Welcome to the crew members’ corner!

My name is Katarina and I’ve been working on cruise ships for several years now! As a crew member, I know how challenging the life and work onboard cruise ships can be. On one side, working on a cruise ship sounds like a dream job, but it has its disadvantages as well.

In my blog, you’ll find useful cruise job information, insider tips & advice, ship life stories, crew members’ testimonials, and much more! You’ll learn how to apply for cruise ship jobs, what to expect onboard, the pros and cons of working on a cruise ship, what to pack for your ship contract… My content is dedicated to both crew members and cruise job applicants, and I hope you’ll find it useful and inspiring!

Don’t forget to follow me on social media for fresh content!
