I just subscribed!

 

Man, I have so many questions, but first - congratulations on your transfer!   I have been on Lady O twice, and she is magnificent.  I hope that your new

position is good for and to you, and you can continue to work your way up.

 

 

Thank you so much! I'm really excited for this next phase in my career, and of course I can't wait to start making videos on Oasis!

I'm enjoying your vlogs, I've always been curious about life as an employee.

I'm not sure if this has been asked yet, but what do you do between contracts?  Do you work another job to pay the bills?  Along the same line, is there a required wait period between the end of one contract and the start of a new one?

I am usually home between 6-8 weeks in between contracts. Believe it or not, I enjoy travelling when I'm on my vacation period. I'm a huge Disney fan, and love spending time in Orlando. My last vacation period, I went travelling across the West Coast. Saw places like LA, San Fran, Yosemite, Joshua Tree - and also went to Vegas, the Grand Canyon.....just to name a few.

I also love having my time to rest and spend with family.

Curious , for your next job as Casino host , is it just on the job training or there is some land base cruise you need to take or some online training ?

All my training was done on the ship. Same with my position when is was in the shops.

When I was in the art gallery, there was 2 weeks training in Miami before joining the ship

So slight change of plan.

Instead of flying to Spain, to join Oasis for the crossing, I'll be joining the ship now once it arrives in Fort Lauderdale.

So, I'll be flying to Miami now from Orlando in 2 weeks. And I'll have 1 night in a hotel, to relax before joining the ship. I much prefer this!

They will fly you from Orlando to Miami?  Figured they would just send you via car service! Orlando is about 45-50 min from PC, Miami is like 3.5 hours from PC.

Chris, I just wanted to know if the sea sickness pills from the medical center is free for guests also?

On rough seas customer service will have them on the desk for guests to grab, so I'd say yes. I've also bought those meds on Amazon for cheap.

Today's topic! Do I get sea sick?

 

I'm one of the lucky few that never gets sick, even in the roughest of seas. I always assumed crew members had lead stomachs, guess not LOL. 

On the topic, how does sick time work on a ship? I'd assume you're encouraged to tough it out, but what if you're that bad?

I actually don't know the answer to this, because I've never taken a sick-day in the 5 contracts I've done.

As far as I'm aware, if we take a sick day, we get payed less for that day. When I was working in the shops, we would lose that days pay completely.
