Sailing isn’t quite the easiest thing to master, and seasickness is still rampant among those stepping onto cruise ships, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a way aboard. Whether you want to spend your time dealing cards in the casino, or rigging stages for onboard entertainment, odds are you will find something worth writing home about.
Waiters and Waitresses: From busboys to bartenders, this sector can make anywhere from $1,000 to $4,500 a month plus tips.
Retail Jobs: Weighing in at about $1,500 to $2,400 a month, the retail staff’s number one priority, on land or at sea, is making commission.
Entertainment Positions: These positions vary per cruise but typically include dancers, blackjack dealers or any other onboard entertainment. Their pay scale is anywhere from $1,800 to $7,000 depending on their specific skillset.
Restaurant Staff: If you have been on a cruise you know that most of your time is spent eating. However, if preparing or serving food is what you’re after, expect to make between $1,500 and $5,000 a month.
