I have some friends in the Philippines, that would like to work on american cruise ships, what do they need to do, and how can they get intouch with a person to do the ground work for them.

Please keep in mind that their income is slim to none

I don't personally know anyone who can help. But I have been to the Philippines many times and know that there are lots of employment agencies in Manila that have connections for overseas employment. It seems that the chief export of the Philippines is people who work in other countries! Most of these employment agencies are legitimate but there are a few that scam people.

I have walked by places with ads in the window (mostly in Ermita) that asks for Filipinos to work in various positions all over the world. Perhaps your friend could get some experience working in the Philippines on some of the ferries or other related ship type duties. I know that there have been many Filipinos who have been in the U.S. Navy and they either stay in the Navy or use that experience for other jobs as seamen on civilian ships.

Good luck.
