  •  Staff are treated very badly (1+ / 0-)

    In some ways worse than indentured servants.  My son is a musician and has many friends who have done or are doing the cruise ship thing to get a paying gig.  The musicians are treated better than most of the staff on a cruise ship.  But still, passports are confiscated, pay is withheld, treatment is poor, don't even think about getting sick.

    •  I remember hearing years ago (0+ / 0-)

      about how Carnival was notoriously bad as far as cruise gigs go. Made me want to keep my military band gig, with musicians put through boot camp, and band seargent-majors yelling sweet nothings at the saxophone section. At least the pay was good.
