dread1 has indicated that this thread is about Canada

Does anyone know about or have experience working on ships along the inside passage and up to alaska? (from Vancouver especially)
If so how easy is it to get, is it worth the money and do u get a chance to take in the sights or staff stuck below decks? Also when is the best time to start applying?
Any info greatly appreciated!!
Thanks

Heya Dread1 :)

I actually have a very good friend that worked on a cruise ship in that area. We had talked about it last week, and she told me you work hard on the ship, but you usually do get time off to explore the sights when the ship docks. She got her job through www.cast-a-way.com.

It's not much, but I hope it helps!

Cheers,
Katie ;)
