    Pros

    Travel, see beautiful places which you never imagined to visit in your lifetime.
    Deliver service on fast track.
    Work with people coming from places you never heard before. Very diverse environment to work in.
    Sets an example to world, if we can leave together everyone else can. No need for Wars! Ethnic Riots!!
    Good care of team members, in house certified training for free, retirement benefits, on board medical, etc.

    Cons

    Some crew cannot get it right - the true team spirit and this can effect you and many others
    Salary is low, which is common in this industry (also depends on your position and where you come from - due to money exchange rates)

    Pros

    Great place to work in Florida. Company was very good to me and let me learn the ropes of the finance world

    Cons

    Pretty hard to move up. They have a core of people who just are there and move up. Not too much to complain though

    Advice to Management

    Make easier to move up in company, less on seniority and more on productivity would be key I feel to advancing the company to the next level

    Pros

    You get to travel all the time. Great way to save money as you have no expenses on board. Free room and board!!!

    Cons

    Food isn't the best that they provide you. The room is quite small and you share it with someone else. Management never listens to your ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people and actually care about what they say. They are the ones doing all the real work around the ship.
